Welcome to "Adventures in Lead", a blog dedicated to the hobby of miniature wargaming. The figures and terrain on this site are mainly for a campaign set in exotic "Indostan", a distant land bearing remarkable similarities to 18th century India during the Seven Years War. Bits and pieces from other projects may pop up here as well from time to time, including colonials, gladiators, pirates, dinosaur-hunting and even some RPG'ing.
The actual campaign journal and after action reports for the Indostan campaign can be found on their own blog - "Indostan: The Jewel in the Crown", the link to which is found by clicking the small image below-left.

"The Petite Race for Africa" Colonial Flags

I thought some people may find this sheet of flags I made for "The Petite Race for Africa" useful for their own colonial games as well. They were designed for 28mm miniatures but could be re-sized for use with other scales.
I'm unsure how authentic the French Foreign Legion flag is, so understand it may well not pass a button counter's scrutiny. Enjoy!


  1. These are wonderful Frank and now saved for later, thank you.

  2. Authentic or not, they looked great on the table - thanks for sharing!

  3. Who is the red flag? They all look great by the way!

  4. Thanks Dan - it is the flag of a Zanzibar slaver.

  5. These flags are most useful and will see some use on my table for DITDC or the MWWBK’s rules . I’ve recently acquired the old Sword and the Flame rules am am looking forward to a game . I’ll also use these on Gunboats . 😎
