Old West Quantrill Outlaw
The figure above is both my villain entry and admission figure for Curt's Analogue Hobbies painting challenge here . Each person is required to paint a figure as kind of an entry fee and this time Curt choose Sam Peckinpah related films as the subject matter for the entry figures. I decided to do a western figure, because Mr. Pechinpah did a famous western film called The Wild Bunch.
Also each Fortnight is a Bonus theme and the upcoming one is villains which I'm currently not doing anything that would fit that, but then a rare thing happened and a light bulb went off in my head and I realized that I could use the entry figure for this as well as he is an outlaw so fits the requirement for villain. So I decided to move him up in the production line so I could meet the deadline.
I painted the figure up to look like an ex-confederate Quantrill raider(considered villains by many) that has now taken up the occupation of an outlaw murdering and robbing for personal profit.
The figure is from Wargames Foundry was a joy to paint up with nice wide smooth surfaces to paint.
Thanks for viewing!
