Another of my new year resolutions was to add a little more to my Swiss which has lain dormant for several months now(After all the hard work was completed). I drew this sometime ago and have finally painted it, and a very difficult flag to paint, due to the faded and worn original.
I have used two references to help me, ospeys Swiss at war providing a good image of the original in Zug museum which is worn and faded and a careful search of the internet finally provided a colour scheme to work on in this modern replica below.
The flag was used by men from Zug and other cantons in early 1477 who were demanding there share of the loot from the Burgundian wars.
I intend to make a vignette of five figures stood around the Saubanner flag bearer, plus make some extra additions to the swiss collection with a few command bases and Crossbowmen.
Thanks for looking
Heres another version from the Bern chronicle.
