As well as redesigning the 15mm Spanish flags for the Napoleonic range, our designer has completed the flags required for Fuentes de Onoro (3 to 5 May 1811) and Albuera (16 May 1811) with the addition of French and Spanish flags, plus a sheet for the famous Light Division.
The Order of Battle series of 15mm Flags for AB allows gamers to easily buy all the required flags for particular historic formations on a few sheets rather than trying to create them with, in particular for the French, the more generic regimental flags. The French flags for the two battles provide appropriately numbered flags for participating regiments and their battalions. The Spanish flags have suitable city or provincial crests to suit the regiments.
The Light Division sheet provides flags for the 1/43rd,1/52nd, 2/52nd and 17th (2nd Elvas) regiments, making it suitable for engagements from 1810 to 1814.
Full details of the orbat flags are in the Fighting 15s online shop. Sheets are £4.00 each. Fighting 15s aims to have these flags available at Salute on Saturday 16 April, stand TK19.
Our designer has been hard at work revising and expanding the 15mm flags for the Napoleonic Spanish, tying in regional and city crests with regiments, and adding standards for volunteer and militia regiments. The new line-up of Spanish flags in the Flags for AB range is now as follows (most flags are the 1768 pattern):
SPA-F01: Aragon, Borbon, Cordoba and Soria line infantry, 8 flags
SPA-F02: 1st or 2nd Cataluna light infantry, Cantabia, Leon and Principe line regiments, 8 flags
SPA-F03 Estremadura, Reina, Toledo and 2nd Valencia line regiments, 8 flags

SPA-F07: Ordenanza of the Tercio Saguntino, 1st Murcian Volunteer Tiradores, Volunteers of St Peter’s Mountian, Volunteers of Ciudad-Rodrigo, Royal regiment of artillery, Royal Troop of Sappers and Miners, 8 flags

Sheets are £3.50 each including VAT, and are available now in the Fighting 15s online shop.
We have also added to our Orbat range of flags, adding the Spanish army for Albuera. Orbat flags are £4.00 per sheet, but fewer are needed to complete historic orders of battle.
We hope to have these fantastic additions to the range at Salute, stand TK19.
