I recall seeing pointed oblong wooden pieces at my local Ace Hardware store. As unusual the friendly sales associate knew exactly what I meant and pointed me to the wood joining biscuits.
These wooden biscuits are used to join two flat pieces of wood but the make excellent bases for various markers. I spray painted them flat brown, glued on green flock, and then attached the shields and weapons that I had painted. After a good spraying with a maximum hold hair spray, I glued small washers to the underside to give them some weight.

I think they will work very well not only for Lion Rampant but for any medieval game where one needs to show a unit that has lost cohesion.
Again thanks to my much appreciated benefactors!
