Generals had silber embroidered stars, officer's had silver or gold embroidered stars. enlisted men and NCOs had white bone (or similar) stars and Faehnrich has silver plated stars and/or silber embroidered stars.

I've seen pressed celluloid "mock embroidered" stars for NCOs-- like the one you show on the far right only plain, without the little "spangle" disks around the center of the star.

Rick, do you have any examples to show? Surprisingly, not many people seem to be interested...

Hello

Thanks for your comments and sorry for the style changes. Three more ranks:

Surprisingly, not many people seem to be interested...

Spanish history interested forums are differents than english language ones. Is a tradition to make "articles" like this (better than this :D ), in special in WW1 matters because there are not almost books in spanish and few people understand english, french, german... maybe it could be

out of place here. But is the only way I know to pay the information i'm getting in the forum.

Boris, your rank graphicis are looking good. I can't wait to see the finished product.

Don't forget Generaloberst and feldmarschall.

Hello ccj, thank you very much. I didn't have a good example for Generaloberst. You'll have to choose one style (the more reallistic in your opinion) for each group of ranks or for all ranks when the work will be over.

And if it is possible a regimental colour table.

Regards.

Boris,

Personally, I prefer the way you created the general's tabs. There's more realistic looking to me. If I had your talent I would create a chart divided in three parts, enlisted ranks, officer ranks, and general ranks. As for the backing colors, I would pick as many from the chart for infantry and maybe a few from arty and cavalry to use and list the rgt or branch under the rank to identify the unit. I think there's a color chart on the first listed site above.

Thanks again ccj, I'm trying to draw it as realistic as possible with the photos I have seen here... It is near to impossible to find a detailed photo in internet.

Looking good Boris,

are you going to do something with the reserve aspirant officers?

Regards

Glenn

Thanks Glenn

Maybe when I finish common infrantry ranks. I only have text-information about it. Main patterns are finished and is not work to make those special-ranks, althought I understood they have not only collar badges but cuffs also to differentiate between grades.
