Prussian officers around map table

A wonderful, new set of Manske Zinnfiguren contains Prussian officers, discussing the strategy and standing around the table with maps. I will use this as a CinC for our wargames, so the officers got a vignette, 2 guards and a cadet, holding additional material. The cadet is of Irregular Miniatures (an artillery man of the Marlburian range), the hand cart of S+D Miniatures.
The heads were changed to give the persons more individual characters. I used heads of Trident (left, center, right), Frontrank (2nd from right), Sash-and-Saber (2nd from left), Manske (guards). The maps are just printed and mounted wet.



The officer on the left seems to be a little bit sceptic with the proposals of the Herr Offizier in the center...

"Meene Herrn, ick schlaje vor, wir ziehn da lang und dann rüber mit de Batterien! "

"So wird's jemacht und da will ick nüscht mehr hörn!..."

    1. It gives the Prussians more effect on the tabletop having officers discussing a strategy - not only a CinC on the horse. That was the idea. Thank you, Ross!
