Swedish Blue Hussar 1756

Unit and uniform detail to follow...

As usual, because this is an image larger than c.30 kbs, I've had to put the real thing on my webspace here: as the blog turns a small png file into a huge 16.7m colour image. The image here is merely a small thumbnail.

French Hussar Guidon 1758

This is the design of a guidon captured by the Prussian 5th Hussars from the French Polleresky Hussars in 1758.

Spanish Heavy Cavalry Style Standard

This is very similar in design to the French heavy cavalry standards (note the use of the Bourbon fleur-de-lys in the corners) but with a more cartoonish face in the centre. It can easily be edited to include the ImagiNation cipher or emblem in the middle.

Prussian Dragoon Style Standard 1

There were at least 5 variants of the standards carried by Prussian dragoons; this is the simplest version of the oldest type, which dated from the reign of Frederick II's father.
