Hi all
Made this little vignette using figures from several different sets of our forthcoming Custer's last stand range.
Hope you like it.

"The Bug" (TM) is back again…

Isn't the forum based on MySQL?

Probably has WAY too many forums and sub-forums for MySQL…

Da Bug

Except for no apparent blood coming from the arrowed trooper I think you did an awesome job especially when you consider that those are only 28mm not 54's'

Bravo Jim

Great looking diorama.

… no apparent blood …

Unless he has just be hit by the arrow, which might be the case since he is recoiling from the strike.

Cheers guys. Thanks for comments.
I avoided the blood becasue as ColCampbell sais the bloke has just been struck by the arrow, so maybe no blood pours out yet. In any case, I don't really know if correct or not. I've never been hit by one or seen it in live.. :)

Great dio and painting.

Arrow wounds..particularily if the arrow remains in situ, donīt bleed a lot.

Excellent work!

It is a little-known and probably false story that when Major Reno returned from a quick scouting ride that day, he reported to Colonel Custer, "Sir, I have good news and bad news."

Custer demanded the bad news first, to which Major Reno replied, "we are surrounded by about 5,000 hostiles, many of them armed with rifles and pistols."

The colonel considered this for a moment, then asked what could possibly be the good news.

Major Reno replied, "Well, Sir, we won't have to go back to North Dakota."

Actually Major Reno did end up having to go back to North Dakota, just not for 2.5 months (that he spent wandering around most of Montana with General Terry.)

Beautiful figures, and from what I can see in the photos, very well researched for the summer of 1876.
