Let's run it up the flagpole...

No unit is complete without some poor guy who's toting a flag around (aka: arrow magnet).

I did a relatively simple Averland banner here, since all the rest of the force is in Altdorf color scheme.  Hence the KF in the shield.  Of course, every time I did that emblem over the course of the entire Empire army.  I have been tempted to make that "KFC".

Just like I did with a few of the 40 Imperial Fist banners, the back had a little design as well.  It just makes it look more interesting!

Positioning this flag was interesting.  The margin for error was a fraction of an inch in multiple locations.  It was either going to hit him in the head, or either of the guys next to him.  These bases were pretty complex, and I was not always able to place them where I wanted.

I even had to shave away some of the decorative elements here and there to make room for the stance.

Next up, a few quick images of the movement tray being made!  Stay tuned.
