Prussias´ Commanders got new staff personnel: This 2 Generals are out of the marvelous range of Frontrank in UK and indeed a great joy to paint. Wonderfully done with details, you can choose between 3 heads for each figure - what a service! They are now in Fredericks duty and hopefully successful in battles...
This is the full ordonnance with Frederick himself in the centre, assisted by officers and standard bearers (Manske Zinnfiguren). To give such a vignette with 5 figures a higher importance, I placed two standards on it and gave them a Prussian "national" flag. Unsure if even such a flag was used, the pattern is based on some sources showing the Kurfurstliche Preussische Wappen from the beginning 18. century. The Prussian eagle, crowned and in the center, marks the flag as particular and different from regimental flags. It uses white background and black, little decorations.
