Help with GMB Flags

Post by Rob Herrick » Sat Aug 20, 2011 3:22 am

I cannot seem to make the ordering system work. When I click on the cart, I get redirected to the website of the cart system, but not the ability to buy GMB flags.

It's a disappointment since he makes the exact flags I am looking for - Ney's 2nd and 3rd Division for 1805 are the same as his 1st and 2nd Division in 1810.

Help please!

Rob,

it appears that I own the following French GMB flags for which I dont have use anymore:
69th Line, 6th Light, 39th, 76th Line Regiment
25th Light, 27th Line, 50th, 59th Line Regiment
3rd Hussars, 10th Chasseur a Cheval, 15th Chasseur a Cheval Regiment

So if all fails I would offer You these flags.

Best Wishes

That would be greatly appreciated. Are they for 15mm or 25mm?

As a favor, could you give me some quick dimensions on how big the flags are? I'm afraid they may be too big for my figures!

Rob,

Sorry that I didnt ask what size you are after :oops:

The Flags are for 25/28 mm

Dimension: backside/staff/frontside 25/4/25mm (lenght) 25mm (height)

Hope that helps

Those are unfortunately too big for 15mm - the flag is taller than the men!

Are the cavalry standards the same size, or are they smaller?

One of my concerns about commercial 15mm cavalry standards is that they are often too small to be visually appealing. They were too small in real life anyway - French cavalry standards are only 60cm square. So, if the 25mm flags are small enough to fit on the staves of 15mm Eagle Bearers, there is some possibility.

Do you have eagles for every squadron, or just the 1st?

Just to add my 10 cents - GMB deliberately over size their flags, or at least they used to!
