Flag Dude Mahdist Flags

My order from The Flag Dude has arrived for my Colonial Troops – I’ve been keen to get this as its the first time I’ve ordered from Rick O’Brien and I was looking forward to seeing first hand what his flags are like – now I can push on and complete my units now and give them their nice new flags. I’ve also taken photos of the Flags on arrival to give people an idea of what they look like!

The following is a random selection of flags I have purchased from Rick O’Brien, the Flag Dude, for my 28mm Colonial Forces. I’ve put these up to give anyone interested a good (but quick) view of some of the flags in a higher resolution than is available on Rick’s site.

In most of these photos the flags are shown much larger than they really are – I used a good quality DSLR camera to take high quality close ups initially (making the flags seem larger than life) but have compressed them for webpage display so picture quality is reduced from originals. I’ll be planning on probably ordering a large batch of ACW Flags later in the year from Rick, followed by Napoleonic Flags for my Quatre Bras armies.

    What are they made of? Paper?

    • Hi Ilya – yes they are printed on paper that has then been treated (moistened) to get the blowing in the wind effect and I think given a matt varnish or fixer coating to protect them.

      They are not the most perfect quality when looked at up close but have an excellent effect and appearance when viewed from even just a small distance away…

      Hope that helps.
