Here are two German Uhlan cavalrymen, an officer and his trumpeter, dressed in their dashing early war uniforms, wearing the distinctive flat-topped czapka helmet.
These 28mm castings are from Great War Miniatures. Very nice models to work with and quite elegant poses on the whole.
I made up a signpost for the officer's base, one sign pointing to Ieper (the local spelling of Ypres (thanks Nico!), or as the British called it: 'Wipers') and the other indicating the ultimate prize of the German advance: Paris.
These two cavalrymen will nudge me along with 20 points.
