Wounded cavalryman

I had a bit of time today so I finished up my latest conversion
 He started life as a Dixon wounded cowboy figure, and a dead horse. The head was swapped over for one with a kepi, a plastic card and greenstuff pistol holster and small conversion on the revolver. 
 Biggest part of the work was painting details, the blue and yellow kepi! The stripe down the outside of the trouser legs. 
 The Sharpe's carbine is from the Perry plastic ACW cavalry set, I kept all the spare parts from the set when I built my Soviet WW2 cavalry. I'm a magpie when it comes to saving bits and pieces from kits that I don't use, you never know when they will fit the bill perfectly. 
 I still have a lot of bits and pieces that I'm working on for my ACW collection, some slightly more complex and more time consuming then this one, but never the less they will all hopefully add that bit more character to my collection.
So thanks for looking
Cheers for
