Have you got a flag?!Jaye Wiley has created a sweet suite of flags for my Triumph of Death Kickstarter, and I just got them back from the printers. Of course I had to dig in and see how they'd work.

Once painted up, I added the flags, gluing them on with watered down white glue. You can also use a glue stick, which lets you peel apart the flag if you don't line it up the first time; just make sure you seal it afterwards or it can come apart. I used an exacto to "age" my banners, touching up the edges with a bit of paint afterwards.
Veteren Standard BearerWith all those fancy flags,I'm in need a grizzled veteran standard bearer for the next stretch goal of my Kickstarter! This fellow is sporting a metal skull cap and mail bishop's mantle and wields a katzbalger sword. In his right hand he holds the landsknecht style baton banner pole, which will be cast separately onto the base. A worthy warrior for a worthwhile stretch goal
Speaking of Kickstarters- my Triumph of Death Kickstarter has 3 days left as of the posting of this blog- so if you have not checked it out, please do so! 7 stretch goals have already been unlocked and we are closing in on the standard bearer- Go- go now!
