End of a dry spell? Unicycle Uhlans

Finally, got some painting done. My VSF Germans get some cavalry of sorts:
I ordered these fellas from Eureka many moons ago.
and a close up
Also did a one off (for now) for my growing collection that takes Unkerlant into the 20th century:
A rare, color photo of a Civic Militiaman after the fall of Koenigstadt. Acting both as police force and personal bodyguard to the king, even at the height of warfare, the Militia still wore their distinctive spiked silver helmets and appulettes. They proved to be effective shock troops.

You know why they were so effective, right? Esprit d'corps!

Who wouldn't be tough and ready to rumble in a snazzy spiked silver hlemet and epaulettes? You gotta look good to fight good, that's all I'm saying.

Which is why my VSF Brits kept the scarlet tunic. Plus, it works as camo on Mars.
