Baden Command Stand with Removable Flag.

The top photo shows the flag on a command stand. The bottom photo is the completed standard glued onto the fine tube. I used P.V.A glue as I find when dry, it does not show through the paper.
The flag itself is the flag of Baden a region of Germany that borders France. Baden were allies of the Prussians in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870>1871. As you can see on the bottom photo I have not painted the highlights on the flag. This you can see on the finished flag held by the standard bearer. Yes I know the flag is oversize, but I like to see flags stand out on the table.
The miniatures are from Eureka, they fit in very well with the Helion miniatures in my Franco-Prussian War collection.
