It does however come with a set of spare heads and spare arms. Two of the arms only fit the mounted bod (they have chainmail sleeves to match the chainmail vest) and two for the foot bod.
The full set with spare heads etc can be seen HERE.
Without any conversions a combined foot and command set of 7 can be created.
Glueing didn´t help much either so they got welded on.
Also the poles of the Standards. The bubblegum plastic that they are cast in means they are too bendy so I replaced them with florists wire, heated up and welded on.
I was going to just paint the Banners up with the usual crosses / stripes / chevrons but then I thought I´d have a bash at painting some freehand religious Icon type standards.
The one on the left is the Madonna and Child by Segna, di Buonaventure (1298 - 1331)
The one on the right has several titels, Christ the redeemer, Christ the teacher etc. It´s a 13th century painting, appearing in a wide range of variations.
Both were painted much later than the El Cid period and I´ve found no evidence of them carrying such Standards at the time but they seem appropaite so why not ? :-
A small apology. I´ve not been getting around the Blogs as much as I´d like to lately. Too much work at the Moment but hopefully that looks set to change in a couple of weeks
