I actually did a bit of a tutorial on how I made the flag – you can check it out here:

Mediaeval Foot Sergeants from Crusader Miniatures.
These were not part of the Lion Rampant Army Deal I recently ordered – though they were ordered at the same time. The nice thing about the army deal was that you got exactly the number you need for the units. The Crusader infantry generally come in sets of eight – which isnt’s upper helpful if you’re trying to make units of 6 or 12 (unless you want two units – then three packs will do you fine). Luckily there’s a four man Infantry command pack that I purchased along with a pack of Foot Sergeants with Spears to make 12 (thougha whole third of the unit then doesn’t actually have spears… Ah, well… lovely figures though.
When I form them into Shiltron I’ll just tuck those non-spear-armed guys into the second rank to hide… and maybe remove them as the first casualties…? Well, at least that horn-blower lad can be first to go!
