Photo Three - The Battenburgers. A name inspired by the flag colours, the famous Battenburg cake and comments on this Blog. The flag is a section of tomato puree tube superglued to a metal rod flag pole and topped by a small square or cube of plastic card.
The standards colours are painted over Stonewall Grey from Vallejo and are a mix of Badmoon Yellow/Skull White and Blood Red/Skull White. The highlighting is done by adding more Skull White while the border is Snakebite Leather. The standard decoration/motif is from a German WW2 transfer sheet that I had spare and applied over Johnson Klear (Future in the US) and then sealed with Klear.
Photos Four and Five - additional images of the standard bearer and the Battenburg flag design. The design was painted on a flat flag and when fully dry the foil was folded into the shape you see. Any cracks, there are always some, were touched up with pink and yellow.
I am pleased with the progress so far, there was a period when the snow began to fall again, that I was wondering if The Pledge was in serious doubt. I hope that you enjoy the On-Line Build to date and that you can also see the humour in this particular regiment of Finklestein Dwarves.
Not much more to say except "I don't like Battenburg Cake - too much marzipan" - the base painting will be next and then on to the varnishing.
