Well I couldn't resist doing Der Alte Fritz. He's obviously in one of his moods as he looks with disdain at a Seydlitz Hussar who thrusts a dispatch his way. A Flugeladjutanten of Cavalry rides at his flank.
Originally this was going to be a bigger stand with a troop of escorting Dragoons and some battlefield splatter - but somewhere along the line I decided to make it smaller, more gamey and that with my tiny collection and painting ability I should be less precious! In 30 years when I have an army, he could always slot in to a bigger scenic diorama.

The Hussar originally had a sword which I whipped off, drilled out and put a sausage in. The pose is probaly a little dramatic but we could just perhaps imagine that the contents of the dispatch is of high importance...
