5 or 6 Star General?
« on: August 10, 2014, 06:03:37 PM »
I'm curious about how true-to-history WB military uniforms need to be with regard to rank?  I believe the year depicted in the WB is 1913?  In 1913 the US did not have a 5 star general (Pershing was a long ways away from that distinction) and it has not "really" ever had a field marshall or six star general status -- although George Washington was effectively the Field Marshall of the US.

Anywho, would it be in poor taste to craft a WB costume that would depict the US Field Marshall/Six Star General of the time?  All in jest of course.  Just how does one choose their rank when crafting a WB military uniform?  Thanks.

Its a fantasy game!

I wear a military uniform with rank on it even though I always regret the fact that I did not actually serve.

Have at it and have some fun with it!

I forgot to answer this part of the question...

I had to give the guy about $19.00 plus shipping and handling.

It looked purdy so I got it! I decided on the bars I got because the were vintage sterling. Looked cool!

For the right price, you can be a 6-star general or even president!

Maybe I will make-up a uniform for a SEVEN star Mexican Generalissimo AKA "Maximum Leader."
