Well things are progressing on the painting front and I have decided on my basing for my ECW foot, they will all be on 40 x 40 bases containing 4 figures. However I also decided to add a second colour bearer to each regiment so I have been sorting out the best way to achieve it.
The sergeant figure was the solution I found that there was sufficient officer arms that with some careful arrangement I could create three standing colour bearers, who would look fine in with the vertical pikes. I just added a sash to each one.
Fiddling with the rest of the arms I had lying around I managed to create a few more variations. from L to R: basic figure; arms from free WI firelock; cavalryman sword arm; fifer and drummer and finally the three new colour bearers. The last of these is all I have to paint to complete my first foot regiment.
