I broke something else...

Ok, this time, I was fiddling with my French Napoleonics and one of the flag staffs was bent.  While straightening it, it broke off right at the flag bearer's hand.  Any suggestons on the easiest / laziest way to fix this?  Any paticular glue?  Or should I buck up and do some drilling and replace the staff and perform an eagle transplant?

I don't even try to fix/replace the staff. I just use a piece of wire placed close. I drill a small hole into the ballast then glue the wire in place with Zap-A-Gap.

Thanks, Mark, I will take that approach and stick some pictures on my blog on how it goes.  I will also try to transplant the eagle.

I just used Mark's method to fix a FPW Brunswick stand, worked great

FPW Brunswick?  What figures do you use for the infantry?

I painted up 2 bases worth of Jaeger as Brunswick line infantry.I based them the same way as my other Prussian and Bavarian infantry. In 6mm that's close enough for me.
