My North Star 'lances' have arrived and I am in a bit of a quandry. Each lance is 100mm long, which is clearly far too long to act as a standard pole.
The question is how long/short should they be and should I have the flag bearer 'resting' the standard on the ground. Unlike my 10mm Pendraken SYW figures these 28mm Foundry figures came without standard poles.
I think I am going to have to cut some of the lances to various lengths and then see what looks right. I imagine I will have to do.the same when I paint my 17th Lancers as I will use the same lances for them.
The other issue is what colour do I paint the standard pole as I have very little information on this. Unless I discover otherwise in the next few days I will go down the line of using Russian Napoleonic colouring for both standard poles and artillery pieces.
