I've decided to do a small project to warm up for the long overdue Sculpting 101 sbs figure that I'll be doing once this little guy is done. Often you read accounts of soldiers, both North and South that have worn out their shoes and are forced to go barefoot. So with that in mind I decided to do one, given I either sculpted or purchased a stock head that would go with the project. I purchased a set of spare heads sculpted by Taesung Harmms (Alpine Miniatures) that was produced by Tiger Models (hope that's the name). I immediately found a head with that Southern look that would fit a "barefoot" Confederate perfectly. The figure The figure is a one off 1/35 scale Private belonging to the 20th Georgia Infantry that formed part of Brig. General Henry L. Benning's Brigade. The regiment participated in the assault against Devil's Den where they engaged the 124th New Youk Volunteers (Orange Blossoms) and helped capture several guns of Smith's battery. I have skipped over the construction of the armature as it was done using the methods I've used on my other 54mm or 1/35 figures. Here is a picture of the roughed in armature with wire showing the positions of the arms. I posed the figure with a Shenandoah rifle which will be replaced by a Dragon/Dml 1/35 rifle from their Union infantry set. Sorry if some of these pictures are not so great.
