Grimsby Wargames Society War of the Roses Banners
« on: March 24, 2020, 10:42:55 AM »
Does anyone know where the Grimsby Wargames Society War of the Roses banners are available from now? Their website doesn't seem to be active (links not working, etc).

There's these post on TMP:
http://theminiaturespage.com/news/447041
http://theminiaturespage.com/news/166012
http://theminiaturespage.com/news/254070

But I can't seem to find the sheets on the GWS website (links limited).

They produced some brilliant flags.  I have their Sikh flags and they are fantastic.  For a while they were on the Victorian Steel website.  I don't know if they are still available.

Perhaps you can find something of use to you on the Don't throw a 1 blog.  Ray there does some very nice flags and they are free to download.

Can't help with the GWS ones but, as well as the Freezywater range, I have some free flags to download in both 15 & 25 mm.  Look in the right hand column and scroll down if necessary.

Good news, looks like the Wayback Machine has you covered! Looking at the snapshots it looks like a lot of the flagsheets were taken off the site in 2014 to save space, and then the rest disappear later on.

If you scroll down a bit on that link it's got the WotR ones at any rate!

Thanks Hunlion and Martin - very much appreciated (I'm getting resources together to assist those in a WotR campaign I'm running).

OB - of course! I forgot GWS was linked to Victorian Steel/nevermore. Does anyone know what happened to nevermore? He hasn't been here for two years.

HappyChappy439 - forgetful me! Thank you.
