Sowabud is author of Transylvanian army in the book ;) it's a way to make difference between types of banners: to paint lances for some and keep them 'natural wood' colour for another.

I didn't realize that. :blush: Maybe I will use something like that as well. :D

Ok, but are those ringed lances something that was really done?

It appears so, at least according to some Hungarian researchers.

Gyozo Somogyi, Warriors of the Hungarian Frontier 1526-1686 and The Army of Transylvania 1559-1690, Budapest: Millennium in the Military, 2013, which are A4 all colour figures from end to end – wonderful inspirational stuff – lots of animal skins and wings an feathers and striped lances!

Shows that 'uniformity' ranged, as has been said, from all to none, too. But as has also been said, the practical problem with no uniformity is keeping track of units during play, especially when playing with unfamiliar figures.

FWIW the secret to painting spiraly striped lances is - don't. Paint a series of narrow lines in the colours you want on a mailing label (ie sticky back), cut the sequence off and wind carefully up (or down) the lance. And please do replace cast-on bendy soft metal lances with brass rod which stays straight - it is so easy to do!

And thank you to everyone who posted ideas for sources in this thread - very helpful.
