I'm also going to redo my rather small ammount of American War Of Independence using these models so you should expect to see some American line infantry pretty soon!

> Hessians for the American War Of Independence!

The soldiers look good. As for the flag, I am not quite sure. It looks rather blocky to me, loosing details.
On the other hand, if you use the "better looking way" to use a bigger image (e.g. from the Internet) and scale down, you may get into "citation problems".
I assume, doing your own high quality image which you can scale down is beyond your reach.

Best regards
Dirk

Though Dirk could have put it a lot more politely (FYI "beyond your reach" is pretty derogatory and offensive in Britain) I understand his point and have attempted to improve the flag.

Uups. very sorry about that!

> I understand his point and have attempted to improve the flag.

The details look much better now, at least IMHO. Can you do something about the flag "base", ie. the read and yellow parts? That is what I meant with "blocky".
Perhaps you can use this as a starting point:
