I know this will not happen easely, if at all.

I always thought it would be nice if the capturing of "the colours" could be implemented in our games.

Obviously engine changes required....

I tend to regard Points For Leaders as more or less synonymous with that. Leaders wouldn't be very far from the colours and vice versa.

We never used this in miniatures but it would have been a fun item to add in!

Mainly it was battalions that were surrounded and that surrendered that would lose their colors. Pretty much the NCOs would die trying to keep them.
