Default Blank standard bearers - please help!

I am starting an IG force, the 15th Funestans, using modified cadian figures I got off a friend. My army is now well underway, however I have a small problem - I can't find a blank standard bearer! The only ones I can find are the one that comes with the cadian command squad, Jarran Kell and the vostroyan one, all of which already have the standard design engraved on the flag. Do any of you guys know of a blank standard bearer that would fit into a Guard army? If so please tell me, thanks in advance for any help! ;D ;D

Most WH Fantasy kits come with at least one, if not three or more blank plastic standards. Just get your hands on one of those and put it in the hands of any guardsman.

Hell if you're located in canada I can probably mail one to you.

Ok this problem I had years ago. My solution was to cut off the standard above the hands holing it and replace it with another rod this you can solder on BE CAREFULL I don't want to be responsible for you trashing your model. Or you can use superglue and a small amount of Gaffer tape. To this new pole you tie on a flag you have made from real fabric. My standards I have made personally with needle and thread (boy I was sad in my youth). I warn you if you don't have experience with soldering go for the glue. My first cadian one that I customised I melted the hands with the iron/blow torch, expensive mistake. First and last time, go with the superglue x100.

Good designs for a standard made on fabric, are those that are big, simple and are unintricate. Its difficult to sew anything complicated. I would draw a whole lot of standards before choosing the one I want.

Really, the easiest thing to do is to simply green stuff over the current pattern on the flag.

All it takes is some green stuff and a wet finger.

I took an extra standard arm from my freinds beastman army and put a kroot armour plate on his shoulder to hide the hair.

it turned out pretty nice. then all you have to do is paint it.

Are there any British fantasy players with a big heart and a spare standard for our friend here?

Thanks for the offer Nightmare! I'm located in Greater London, could you show me a picture of this standard? If it fits in I'd love to have it, I'll pay postage.
