Famous Faces of Beerenburg, part 4

Riding at the head of the Beerenberg Expeditionary Force is the Burgher-meister, a leader elected by the burghers, from among the burgers to oversee external trade negotiations and hostile take-overs. Outside of the city walls, the Burgher-meister's word is final as he (or she) executes all business in the name of the city. 

Custom dictates that they manifest, as far as possible, the Three Pints standard of the city. Here the commander rides a black stallion representing the flag's field, and wears tankard-bronze armour. Like all Beereburgers, his helmet is topped with a plume of beer-foam white.
