With such famous battles as The Battle of Little Big Horn, Apache, and Sioux wars, the U.S. 7th Cavalry during the Indian Wars is etched in the memory of popular culture. The subject of this diorama captures a moment during one of these battles in the west.
Produced by Andrea miniatures in 54mm, this scene captures the mood setting and fierce battles during the period of 1876. I painted everything in a combination of Vallejo, Andrea, and Citadel acrylics. The horses were airbrushed in the “Model Air” series of Vallejo acrylics, and sealed in clear flat lacquer.
