They can be seen wearing Raupenhelms (Caterpillar Helmet). These were replaced by the Prussian style Pickelhauben by 1889. I figure why be too anxious to follow all the ways of the scheiss Preisen (shite Proosians)? Plus, I got them cheap. The figures are from Wargames Foundry. The molds must be getting old because the casting wasn't that great. Their left hands look like they were put through a meat grinder. Painted up well enough though.
Here are two units of cavalry for my German forces. The miniatures are from Foundry Miniatures and while I have mounted hussars, I'm still looking for affordable mounted dragoons (it would cost me close to $90 to get nine from FM, ouch).
5th (Pomeranian) Hussars "Prince Blücher of Wahlstatt" Before painting the hussars, I'd picked the colors on a whim. Then I found out which regiment they belonged to. Turns out, as of 1889, the regimental commander is none other than Edward VII, Prince of Wales. Talk about awkward if they ever end up fighting any British.
Here we have Piranha Boy from Four A Miniatures smiling for the camera. Check out http://www.fouraminiatures.com/ where you can find interesting stuff like devil fish and goblins sculpted by Kev Adams. Plus, Mr. Coleman is a swell guy.
Piranha Boy can be found in and around the marshy canals of Venice Beach. He's a friendly mutant and has never intentionally eaten anyone. You can hire him as a guide and tracker. His uncanny ability to track in water has its obvious advantages.
Some believe that he's a mutant piranha unlike the Sea Monkeys found along the coastal ruins and are clearly mutant humans adapted to aquatic life.
