Prussia: König Friedrich II. mit Stabsoffizier

I put some new pics now of this set because I wasn´t happy with the former images..

Dear readers - sorry for my late posting in this blog after a while of silence - it´s dued to the big preparations to our battle wargame in july in Switzerland, when we will celebrate the annual, big family-battles. We will meet at our relatives there and place our armies for one or two big battles, involving Prussia (5 reg.), Russia (6 reg.), France (6 reg.), Saxony (2 reg.) and - the first time - Sweden (4 reg.). It´s still in discussion, which armies will be allied and  in which combination - we will see. So, the last weeks, I was occupied with the new terraining for the battlefield (ground 2,50m of 1,40m)  and some artillery-trains. More about this later.

Today I would like to present you the figures of Frederick II. with his guard officer, mounted on horses. The figures are from Matthias Manske and again delicious pieces of his edition.
I placed Frederick on a round plate (as seen at the Alte-Fritz-Blog) to check the effect. The guard officer is placed separately to give him the freedom to move during the battle and to take more positions: officer of the 1st regiment or the guard of the king.
I did again - just for fun - a montage with some backgrounds - this time a bavarian landscape, taken a few minutes from my home.


  1. Very nice, sir.

    Good luck in the "Family Battles".

  2. Fantastic work...
    Enjoy the family battles when they come!
    best wishes

  3. Thanks Jeff, thank you, Tradgardmastare! I will post pics from the battles in july - still in preparations..

  4. I look forward to the battles. It was a miracle when Frederick had more than one ally at the same time.
