Age of Sail flag sets, and feedback request

I've just released three new Age of Sail flag sets, two of which date back from the 17th century (Electorate of Brandenburg and Emanuel Wynn pirate) while a third one is from the 18th century (Kingdom of Naples).

After this release, our naval flags collection comprises up to 33 sets belonging to seventeen different XVII century seafaring nations: Castile/Spain, Portugal, Aragon/Catalonia, France, Ottoman Empire, England, Netherlands, Malta, Venice, Sicily, Holy Roman Empire, Brandenburg, Danmark, Scotland, Mughal India, Sweden and Ming China - besides of two pirate sets. This is leading me to believe this period as properly covered enough - although there are certainly more flag sets to be considered!

On the other hand, their XVIII century equivalent is comprising now 10 sets: Spain, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Naples, Maratha India, Russia and Qing China - as well as another three pirate sets. So this particular period has been left second to the above, and one could think convenient to boost it a bit.

So I'm likely going to pay some more attention to 18th century from now on; I'm not leaving 17th century aside (no way!), but perhaps it's come the time to invert priorities. What do you think? Is there any particular set, or sets collection, you would like to see soon? Please drop me some lines explaining to wishlist (at) minairons (dot) eu. Thanks for reading!

XII International Brigade flags

We have already available a further set of Spanish Civil War flags, printed in 1:100, 1:72 and 1:56 scales altogether as usual. This new release covers the 12th International Brigade, perhaps better known as 'Garibaldi Brigade' on behalf of one its battalions' name. Set comes as a DIN A7 paper sheet with three flags.

WSS Portuguese Infantry flags

I'm happy to announce release of a further War of the Spanish Succession flag set, made available in 1:100, 1:72 and 1:56 scales altogether as usual. This time it's been the turn for the Portuguese Infantry ~1700 pattern, a well known design consisting of eight green and white triangles, with a countersquare frame of the same.

I've taken advantage of this above for also releasing a free PDF booklet summarizing all available information on Portuguese flags I've been able to gather from knowledgeable local sources. You can download it for free from our website.

And last, I would ask to all those having previously downloaded our Spanish flags PDF booklet to check what version do they have in hands, because I've taken advantage too for updating this latter with further information regarding postwar flags (1718 and 1728). If the booklet you have reads "2.0 version" it's OK; otherwise, if it reads "1.0 version" instead, that means you'd probably like to download it again.
