The model stays close to the source material with a few minor changes to suit my tastes.

 

The Source Material for the Banner

 

The banner is made from rolling out green stuff when it is half dry.  One of the features of this banner is that it actually rotates around the flag pole.  I do this so that is is easy to paint the rest of the model when you can move the flag out of the way, it makes packing and transport easier, makes it more able to take a drop (tested already) and means you can change the position on the final model if you are unhappy with it’s facing with ease.

Next up is the grenade lancher guy and a guardsman to round out 5 models for the command squad and soon after will do a medic as an optional 6th model.
