"The finest light cavalry in the world.."

Of the Native Americans of the Northern Plains, including the Sioux and others, that is how some historians have classified them.
This is an old figure that my father had. Knowing that I could not do it justice if I attempted to do a proper paint job on it, I elected to try and make it look like a bronze statue.

  1. I never though about doing it this way but it looks good. It would match a statue perfectly. I just did a quick search on this and eBay has a lot of three for sale. Does not look like an easy item to find.

  2. Something different from the norm, for sure, Robert. And what a great idea to finish it in bronze shade:
    It looks amazing!
    Kudos to your creativity!

  3. It looks awesome this way, Robert @roofrat
    This bronze painting looks perfect.

  4. Hoka Hey ! Great tribute and sincere to boot.A confused history revision this is not. thanks for posting Robert

  5. Great idea, Robert (@roofrat). I am sure I would embarrass myself if I tried to paint a figure.

  6. Good thinking, Robert, it turned out well.
