Can You Hear Me Now?

On Thursday and again today, we played a small Franco-Prussian War game involving a French attack on a Prussian supply convoy.  On both occasions, the French won handily.  But that's not the point of this post.

The senior Prussian commander was a conversion that my good friend and gaming buddy Jay, Lord Sterling had made.  He used a standing figure in a European military style overcoat and added a Prussian head in helmet.

EDIT:  Since I posted this, I found that I have the same figure who is actually holding what appears to be a cigar.  So not a conversation, just an unusual pose that led to the funny appellation.

Can you hear me now?

We though that he looked like he was trying to make a cell phone call.  Jay said that he thought the original figure did have a cell phone or a walkie-talkie in his hand.  Just goes to show that you can't get away from the blasted devices no matter where in time you travel.
