Here is a couple of places to look. They are great figures.

C-P Models. Go under 28mm and then SciFi and look for Trench Warfare.
I use them for my Weird World War I figures.

Another possible is Warrior Miniatures under the England Invaded line.

Great War Miniatures are making Trench Raiders.
Here are the english ones, but they're making germans too:

Have a look at Anvil Industries.

They do Brodie and Stalheim helmets and trench raiding  equipment.

An alternative is the old Warzone figures.

I do like the idea, and you're right it's something that people don't seem to have explored.... Even more surprising, given the semi-recent Wonder Woman film

Foundry do British & German Trench raiders
Renegade did (as they are currently OOP?) early war trench raiders for British & German stormtroopers
Brigade games do British trench raiders (& American?)
Old Glory do British, German, American & French trench raiders + Characters
Scarab miniatures did (as site currently down) Austro-Hungarian trench raiders, and a solitary 'Werid WW1' zombie robot type chappie

Some of the Footsore & Artizan VBCW brigands might work as suitably ragged raiders depending on what your plans are.
Empress stock the Tsuba miniatures German Revolution line which might be handy for characters, levy (some of the civilian uniformed figures?) etc   
Priests/cultists are fairly ageless
Pulp figures do 'pulpy' German Zepplintroopen and stormtrooper types
Ironclad miniatures do armoured VSF British Naval landing parties and Electro cannon.
A lot of the West wind SOTR werewolves etc would probably work with very little modification

I guess it all depends on how 'weird' you want to go and what flavours you want - mad science, occult strangeness, alternative history, etc etc

Sorry for late response but I thought I had responded  I suppose a ww1 version of bolt action konfkict , How I got thinking about this was the thrugg bullneck ork raiders I have unsold looked slightly Germanic and I found a pic where they are painted as space apes with humanish skin tones.
So Iím thinking of a ww1 German officer/advisor and going to get some British to oppose them
Also thinking about the artwork of Jakub with walkers and infantry/cavalry so may do a similar style but with a www1 vibe.
I also have some of the old firegorge foot sergants and rogue trader guard /squat las rifles and making them into halfling snipers ??
