Can't help with Nobby's tea drinking habits but on the matter of guidons/ standards:

If you don't add them will it irk you every time you use them?

If you don't add them will you notice after the first couple of times they are on a table?

If you don't add them will other people notice?

If you don't add them will the people who notice care?

If the answer to all these questions is no, don't bother.

If the answer to the first question is yes, add them.

If the answer to question two is yes, add them.

If the answer to questions three and/ or four are yes, get less observant and/ or less picky opponents and don't add them. :)

YMMV

I won't miss them, but I will be wistful for them.


I'm adding. All cavalry have them?

As someone who has known Last Hussar for some time, I can answer for him

Q1: If you don't add them will it irk you every time you use them?

A: Yes it will.

Q2 If you don't add them will you notice after the first couple of times they are on a table?

A: Yes he will.

Q3 If you don't add them will other people notice?
A: We will now he has mentioned it.


Q4 If you don't add them will the people who notice care?
A: No not at all, but we are now obliged to mention it at every possible opportunity.  :)


If the answer to questions three and/ or four are yes, get less observant and/ or less picky opponents. - I am afraid thats not one of the options he has available.  ;D

As these are for Blucher I only need to represent them at approx 4000 men per unit, or 2500 for cavalry, so only 3 units.

Next will be Westphalia, Saxony or Bavaria; need to look at what figures I have left on hand. Then a decision about what to buy from Walt, over and above another pack of Cuirassier.
