Generally this week I have been mostly focused on getting the GMB flags fitted to my command bases, a time consuming task but well worth the effort. This required me to add a couple of extra standard bearer figures that still need base texturing as you can see. The French battalions in the FIW I'm told carried two flags as supplied by GMB, anyway they look most impressive and I wasn't going to waste them!
The French artillery have been bought up to two guns with a light howitzer due to follow.
Yesterday, my Commands & Colors printed battle mat arrived and I quickly opened it up in a state of great anticipation. The print quality is excellent, as is the quality of the fabric upon which it is printed. However, the hexes have been printed the wrong way round, they should run flat to flat along the width of the cloth as per the C&C standard board AND the advertised product on the website, but they don't. This means I can't use it and need to return it for a replacement, I was bitterly disappointed but hopefully it wont take long to supply me with the correct mat. My wife really did not help matters when she said "Oh well, you can always have it made into a pair of trousers" .... yes, very funny darling, they really do not grasp the seriousness of such matters.

|Fabric quality is very good and can be ironed etc,|
|I really like the print quality.|
|And the 6" hexes work well with my bases.|
