Between games I took advantage of the time to add standards to the six Successor command elements, but did not want to lavish time using Milliput and extra brass wire for support.
I therefore opted for a simpler result.
For the visual effect, the brass wire including its triangular foot would be cut to a length not exceeding the cavalry lances. To the casual eye the standard would seem to be carried by a trooper rather than as fixed to the base.
In the book “Armies of the Macedonian and Punic War” Duncan Head describes the later Hellenistic standards on page 222; descriptions varied from sun discs, crescent moon to square shaped flags.
I selected the disc shaped symbol but would replicate the shield pattern of the command’s phalanx; Argyraspides, the guard phalanx and the line. After painting the disc and pole the ribbons (common feature) were added, two ribbons for the CinC and a single ribbon for the subordinates, I varnished the standards.
