Thanks for the flagmaker links, have not seen that before, looks very useful for future projects  Thumbs up.

The command stands I am doing now are the last things I have for this ECW project, they will allow me to stage Kilsyth and Inverlochy with the correct units at some stage as well as Dunbar (which I am still hoping to refight once this lockdown is over).

Whats next for me? well since Paul is on a DBA theme currently thought, amongst other things, that I would see what DBA armies I could make up from a mishmash of 15mm DBM stuff that I got some years ago when my freind Rob passed on.....get in a bit of practice for when Paul's Punic War armies finally get into action  Wink

I have stuff from Sassinid (a little), Selucid (a lot) and Fuedal English (lots) and Medieval Hungarian (lots) armies so I will see what I can come up with. None of them have been touched for years and a quick inspection reveals some serious TLC is required. This is strictly a use what I have exercise, will not be getting more 15mm.

Just got to edge the flags then I will put up some pics of them.

The sun came out a bit this afternoon so took a few quick shots with my cellphone camera:

The 10 completed command stands:



Three command stands for Inverlochy - 2 for Argyll's regiments and one for Lt Col Roughe of the Erl of Tullibardine's regiment:



Four command stands for Kilsyth - 3 regiments of Fife Militia and one for the Earl of Crawford-Lindsay's regiment:



Three generic regiment command stands - I can convert 3 Irish regiments into extra Covenanter ones for games like the Dunbar refight:



Final three regiments of Covenanter infantry and a couple of commanders that I didn't show eariler:



couple of solo boardgames I picked up second hand (before the lockdown  Wink ) to help pass the time now these guys are done:



So far they are proving very entertaining.....

Excellent, Pierre! Love the flags. Btw, I refer to the casualty stand you did recently as “Mollinary Structures”  Wink

Paul should take most of the qudos for these as he very kindly painted all the figures for me, I just base them up and make them look spiffy with flags etc  Wink

And this project thread still lives on....

Finally found the markers I started basing up for DGuy's Celtic Fringe "extra" troop types - Attached Bows and Knife/Axe/Sword - while looking for something else (which I of course didn't find  Grin )

So labelled and added flock to complete them. I used 40mm MDF hexagon bases that I had on hand and green coloured labels to indicate that they were markers and not separate units.

They look well. I've actually some hexagonal bases ordered to see how they work out for attached generals so nice to see some properly done up.

Those look very smart - I think its the hex base, the basing and the labelling all make a very smart looking marker.
