Eligible bachelor seeks cavalry brigade

Casimir Pulaski in search of a command. 

My miniature version of one of the more tragic figures of the AWI* is a Hinchliffe Prussian Hussar (OPC50) with a Suren head (appropriately enough from George Washington, with added tache). The figure is based on the Batowski painting (which is unlikely to be particularly accurate, but it's one of the iconic images of Pulaski, so what the hell....).

My rebel cavalry force is in urgent need of reinforcement, the reasons for which will become evident shortly.

*Forced to flee his homeland, shunned by many rebel officers, and mortally wounded during a futile charge - this man clearly broke a few mirrors in his time.
