Here is the second base of rear ranker's, made up of the Uri contingent and a Glarus halberdier and standard bearer. As mentioned in an earlier post the standards are from Pete's cloth flags. I also have the Landsknecht sheet too, and I will have to say the colours on them are far more vibrant than could be achieved if hand painted with acrylic paint, and they are very well detailed too!
I have added a little brief on sticking these cloth flags after the photos.
Pete's cloth flags
I used white wood glue to stick them to the poles, when sticking paper flags they will easily be stuck around the pole, literally stick all the way round it first time, and your done , but because these are cloth they didn't take to the pole as easy. So after cutting out the flags I folded them at the half way point and then glued them as normal to the pole, then placed them on a flat surface, i then placed a heavy object with a flat edge on the flag making sure the flat edge was right up to the pole but not on it, and left them to set( which was about half hour with wood glue).
Then where the pole meets the flag at top and bottom I added a drop of super glue to add strength to the bond. After the usual bit of painting around the edge they were ready to go.
This will probably have been an irrelevant topic for most of you as you will be familiar with these flags and have your own way to stick these wonderful flags, but I thought it would be helpful to anyone who has only used paper flags before.
