My first sculpt-Confederate Soldier
This fella was built in late 1993 or early '94. It was my first real attempt at sculpting a figure. It was about that time when I was in awe by the works of Shep Paine and Bill Horan (who's pieces were gracing the pages of practically every figure magazine out there) and it they were my first true inspirations. The body is from the Airfix Multipose figures, stripped down then re-built up using Milliput. The face was painted with oils (Why? Because everyone was doing it!)The rest in Polly S acrylics (anyone remember that line?).
