As you have not stipulated what regiments I have thrown out a cross section.
A starting of point is to look through these

Thank you but where to buy WAS flags for my figurines?12/10/2017 at 19:37 #73683
May be of some use.
If they are of a smaller, up size them.
Use Hall’s CDs and plates, a scanner and Photoshop.
I make a lot of my own using my own data base.13/10/2017 at 06:53 #73714
But why, with GMB Design, the English flags start in 1747 ?
So they were different at the beginning of the WAS ?
Why do the manufacturers pass of the flags of the War of Spanish Succession to those of the Seven Years War ?
I bet that for the War of the Polish Succession and War of Austian Succession the flags were different, right?13/10/2017 at 09:49 #73719CameronianParticipant
For the British Army get the details of colours from the clothing book 1742 which gives the regulation designs but wasn’t enforced until some years later. Colours in use in the field likely didn’t conform 100% of the time, e.g. Barrell’s at Culloden.
'The time has come" The walrus said. "To talk of many things: Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--Of cabbages--and kings--And why the sea is boiling hot--And whether pigs have wings."13/10/2017 at 10:06 #7372013/10/2017 at 13:51 #73747
Paskal it would be easier for you to type in on Google search or whatever internet search engine you use “flags of War of the Austrian Succession 28mm wargame” and choose from the several hundred items that appear.
If you are after a particular flag, do what I do make your own. It is very easy, though time consuming using internet searches, microsoft office and microsoft picture it photo, go for it. Most of my flags on units that changed their flag colour or design during WAS, WSS or SYW can be changed as the period requires for WAS, WSS, SYW it works for me.
To show you what I mean.
As you can see from the three photo’s I can swap around the flags as I require, as Cameronian points out colours did not always 100% of the time conform to exactly what was in the manuals. If uniforms wore out on campaign they were patched up or replaced with local available materials. I am sure the same applied to flags, I don’t get to hung up on exact detail. As near as I can or that looks good I am happy with it, does me.
Also I tend to make my flags, guidons, banners, colours over large, as I think they look good. I think its a wargame thing.
Here is a list of wargame firms that make or sell flags of various periods.
Flags of War
Flags for the Lads
I hope this helps.13/10/2017 at 14:04 #73750

I can not answer any of these questions, contact the manufacturers and ask them.13/10/2017 at 14:10 #73751
Last but not least, Mark Allen produces and sells hand painted flags of this period. Here is a photo, excellent detail, contact him and he may produce what you are looking for.13/10/2017 at 16:08 #73761
