While my grandson was visiting yesterday, I finished the basics of the Empire army standard bearer.
Brass rod and tubing, and another plastic bit from the GW Knights box. This is the same piece that I used on my general's mount, and should help continue a theme for the army.
Add a bit of glue and it is done:
Now for the standard. I looked through the selections at Warflag - Ian Croxall's marvelous web site - and found some nice Renaissance flags. In particular, I think will use the Holy Roman Empire battle flag. Might need to modify the size a bit though; it is a rather long flag!
