    This is my take on Union hero Captain Hubert Dilger.
    Born in Germany Captain Dilger of the 1st Ohio Light Artillery won the congressional medal of honour in covering the Union retreat from their defeat at Chancellorsville.
    Later his daring tactics at Gettysberg heped slow the Confederate breakthrough on the Union right flank
    The figure is based on this nightowl studio print previosly posted on PF. See references forum ACW prints.

    The figure is largely scratchbuilt from magicsculpt with a modified historex head and horse

    I think you have captured the likeness of "leather breeches" quite nicely

    Hello

    Great work you have here.
    The dots in the horse are strange, in my opinion they must be more disguised.
    Congratulations
    Regards

    Thanks for the comments guys
    Pedro I here what you say about the dapples but I did look at quite a few pictures of dapple greys, on some the dappling is subtle, on some quite pronounced
