I came across a great early medieval standard bearer the other day whilst looking through Essex miniatures. He looks the part for Lake Town and so I bought a few. These will really help to add some blue banners into the rabble.
I kept the design very simple, it’s meant to be the Lonely Mountain with a star in the top corner. Most important is the blue colour as mentioned in the Hobbit.
I had to remove a casualty figure to fit him in and actually the central guy isn’t a bad choice for a leader.
I got a bit lazy and started using paper flags of different colours so it’s nice to get some more blue fluttering away.
