Since there have been some new threads on Custer recently , I thought I'd post the Andrea 90mm figure as he appeared at Little Big Horn.

As he appeared "near" LBH .
Of course you're kidding, but when Custer's naked corpse was discovered semi-propped up against another, eyewitnesses said there were only two small bullet holes in it, one in the chest near the heart and another through the temple indicating that he *may* have shot himself. That's an excellent depiction of Custer at LBH by the way!

One of the books I have about the Bighorn fight is from the Indian's point of view and in it, the warrior stated that Custer was leading the charge into the village at the Medicine Tail Coulee in support of Reno's attack on the village from the south, and Custer was shot in the chest while crossing the stream. The attack stalled because of this and the troopers withdrew to the hills. This wounding of Custer would explain why he didn't support reno's attack better.
And at Last Stand Hill, when it was apparent that all was lost, Custer, or someone else could have shot Custer in the head, which would indicate that Custer was still living, but incapacitated from his earlier wound.

It's a very interesting battle to study, and I've been there twice, and both time I think, "what a lonely place to die."
