Current project- "My share of the spoils!"

General Albert Sidney Johnston at the Battle of Shiloh, April 6th, 1862.

Inspired by Don Troiani's "Men of Arkansas".

The figure depicts the General waving a tin cup snatched up from the Union camp which had been over- run early that morning. Shortly after pressing home another attack on the Federal line, the General was mortally wounded.

The figure is was built using a wire armature with Aves and Kneadatite epoxy putties filling out the body.

His horse "Fire-eater" is an Historex piece.

The figure is painted and the horse is in process.
