I thought a sticky with links to material that can be used for signatures & avatars would come handy as at least the French will sooner or later have outdated signatures.

For the Napoleonic Wars in general:
http://www.warflag.com/napflags/html/flags.htm


For for the French:
Flags for many French but unfortunately not all regiments:
http://www.drapeaux.org/France/Empire_1/index.html

Mottos of French Infantry Regiments
http://www.napoleon-series.org/military/organization/c_infslo.html

Mottos of French Cavalry Regiments
http://www.napoleon-series.org/military/organization/c_cavslo.html

If you have more material lease post and I'll add it to this first post.

Now at least on the French side no higher formation used any flag, so no brigade, division or corps flag but did they use anything else?

Another question, can anyone recommend a font that is roughly like the one used on the main pahge of the LGA or do yo know what font that is?
I'm searching for fonts that look like drawn with a quill but that don't use any "fancy" loops or so that makes them hard to read.

Hi Christian, when I am looking to match fonts up with graphics for titles (for the site) - one of the places I go is:

http://www.dafont.com/

I know that it is not a direct answer, as I don't have time to search it - but one of the things that you can do on this site is type in some text first to see how it looks before downloading the font set. What I do is type in the title of something that I am trying to match (for example Panzer Campaigns - when I was looking for the specific font - and it worked pretty well).

On the downside, there are a lot of font sets to sort through so it can get a little frustrating just due to the amount of looking.

Hopefully this helps some.

About image hosters, I wonder if I'm the only one having problems seeing images on photobucket.com, neither here nor on another boards I can see pictures that are hosted there, this is likely due to the fact that photobucket sets massively on advertisement to run their page, that means letting a huge amount of scripts and who knows what else pass by your firewall into your browser what is never a good idea.
That is with using Opera and Firefox as browser, Internet Explorer doesn't seem to have that problem but well again no wonder as IE itself can be considered a good security "problem".

I highly suggest to place images in hosters that a rather undemanding like imgur.com or others, that makes sure signatures and pictures for AARs are shown properly for everyone.
