Prussian officer c1700

This fashionably dressed Prussian officer with his pagoda sleeves is interesting - he's wearing his sword belt under his coat with the hilt protruding through a 'sword slit' on his coat - something you never see on wargames figures but is quite common in period illustrations. Brandenburg-Prussian officers and ncos dressed in reverse colours (I think). I don't think I've seen a Brandenburg-Prussian wargames army for this period - anyone have one? I wonder if having an iron ramrod (from about 1700) would give you an advantage?
Noticed Reiver castings have a a small range in 28mm - and a nice new website.
