Here is a picture of some of the Minden Austrian senior officers that are shown on my blog today:

Very nice and I agree with Duffy (mind you that might be because I always wind up playing the Austrians)

Love the use of round bases for top brass – very helpful on the game table

Do you use the number of figs to represent level of command? I do that for my Napoleonics – single figs for brigade, two for Division, three or more for Corps/Army

Very nicely done, as usual, Jim.

I also use round stands for my command groups, with the same number of figures that Frederick has.

A large round stand with 3 or more figures is the army commander. Two figures is a division or wing commander and one figure on a round stand is a brigade commander,

I should also note that the officer waving his tricorn hat is an RSM figure mounted on a Connoisseur Miniatures horse.

Nicely done.
