FEMALE VICTORIAN SCI-FI HUSSARS



OK, I am finally back to this blog, and it is appropriate that the first new post should be about these superb VSF female hussars from new company, Hinterland Miniatures, sculpted by Paul Hicks.
Jason Moses designed and commissioned these figures following a discussion on the Lead Adventure Forum.
"On 22 October 1909 Princess Viktoria-Luise of Germany received her commission as Colonel-in-Chief in the 2nd Leib Hussaren regiment. The miniatures above are intended to represent a fictitious unit of female Hussars, serving at the end of the 19th Century, up to World War I. Although these miniatures wear the famous Death's Head Hussar insignia on the busby, they could be painted to represent a variety of Hussar regiments."

These fantastic, and inspired miniatures are available from:-
HINTERLAND MINIATURES
I have ordered a set of 12 of these miniatures from the US to the UK for $34, including postage, and I can't wait for them to arrive. Quite a novel idea, and more are planned if these are successful enough, I believe.
