On these higher level command stands, I include dice frames, in case I need to do some form of command tracking. I also put a small metal square on the base which allows me to mount a flag as a bit of eye candy or to signify some special status (there is small rare earth magnet under the flag base). The above flag is from the excellent GMB Designs. To complete the above command vignette, I used the General Staff Adjutant in the excellent Great War Miniatures 1914 German High Command set . The 1866 and 1914 uniforms are close enough that it is mainly a matter of color scheme to represent the earlier period.
Having acquired the 1914 high command set, I couldn't pass up on the splendid general officers in overcoats (above). I painted these with only a vague idea of how I might use them. However, once done, I decided to put them together as a bonus command stand.
Now I have another high level Prussian command stand if I need one, which is what I tell myself. The reality is that I just had to create some sort of display for these splendid figures (I hope you're happy, Aly!). It's not as if this hobby is about utility, anyway.
But I digress. In the process of putting this post together, I've also gathered some shots to put together another post illustrating my figure basing scheme, which some have asked for. I hope to put together a report on that later this summer.
