    With apologies to Bill Horan, whose work inspired the commission.

    Hey John,

    Nice work. I like the ankle of the guys right leg/ankle and one of your better paint jobs I think.

    John,

    This is very very good. I find that the muddy enviroment will take his contribution to the figure. Really nice work.

    Nice to see this one finnished, John.

    I think youve gotten the greys dead on. I really like the cold and worn look theyre sending out. And the shading and highlighting of the very same.

    Cheers

    Roberto,

    It is scratchbuilt minus a few bits. I used a Hornet bald head, one Historex hand and a Shenandoah pistol, and holster. The officer's bag is Shenandoah, and I think the canteen is Michael Roberts. I sculpted the hair, beard, and bandage on the head. It's a commission, and not something I might have done otherwise. I'm glad I did it, because I would have avoided the greatcoat. It was a challenge, but I learned and would do another.

    John, Now you can do a charging Irish Brigade soldier in a greatcoat at Fredericksburg. :) ~Gary
