Nearly ready to start painting. In just a couple of months I have managed to acquire the:34 Tallarn guardsmen, 3 of 4 sergeants & 3 of 4 autocannon teams in need for my 1st platoon. Also have a Tallarn captain & Al'rahem so started to get the figures needed for CCS & PCS, still short their autocannon though, may have to buy some just have to decide wether to keep with old GW or new-style forgeworld ones? Starting to put paint on this weekend, but wondering does anyone know a referance for an 'official' Tallarn banner as I will need a regimental standard. Then need to start trying to put together my foward attack units, have 4 meltas & a Chimera so just a few troops to get my first Veteran unit. Was thinking of getting forgeworld Tallarn equipment packs and putting backpacks on the Vet's to make them stand out from standard troops, but this is a bit pricey. I assume they look & fit to standard Tallarn GW metals; has anyone actually tried this?
Summary of questions:
Keep with GW Autocannons, switch to Forgeworld or combine designs?
Anyone know an official Tallarn banner referance?
Do Forgeworld Tallarn eqipment packs fit & look OK on classic GW Tallarn infantry?
Is the idea of giving Vets extra kit a goog one for making them identifiable or should I just relly on sash and scarf colours?

There are no official Tallarn banners that I know of. The best thing I could suggest would be to combine the Imperial Aquila with the old Arab Revolt flag from the first world war. The "Lawrence of Arabia" arab revolt is what the Tallarns were originally based on.
As for Vets, you could paint Camo on their uniforms to differentiate them. It's what I did when I was running a gun line.
Come visit my blog at: www.warstrike.org
I would get as much forgeword heavy weapons as you can in there.
Don't know of an official tallarn banner but I would go for some of those bright red or snot green arab cavalry banners you see in Lawrence of Arabia. Basically a plain red or jade green banner with gold islamic interlaced designs on them.
If you have the money I would get 3-7 packs of the tallarn snipers and use them as standard infantry perhapse tepresenting your vets. You can gut down the longlass stock a little and comvert a plamsa gun or two.
