It Just Doesn't Pay Sometimes
I'm currently painting 15mm Battle Honors Napoleonic Austrians. I'm working hard to make them nice. I snipped off the cast standard and replaced it with brass wire. I resculpted the bearer's hands and finial. I lovingly painted the miniature. I rescaled the appropriate standard from Napflags, printed it out and attached in, waving in the breeze in an energetic manner. I gloss urathaned the miniature to protect it, then a coat of Dullcote for sheen. Then, yes, I see that I've mounted the firkin' flag upside down. I think I'm just going to leave it.
