With most stands having a variety of banners, it might be difficult to distinguish friend from foe. Jake had a nifty solution which I mimic (see Jake's solution). The solution consists of making a number of, what I will call, "unifying banners" and placing one on each stand.
For my stands, I placed a color-coded receptacle (red-heavy, blue-medium, green-light) to quickly identify troop type. Into this holder will go the unifying banner as shown below:
Now, even with different dress, stands from one faction can be identified easily on the battlefield.
If the weather improves, I'll make the 200 mile round trip trek to Moscow in the morning. As added motivation, I also have a small Peter Pig resupply awaiting my arrival!
