Old West Quantrill Outlaw

My first post of 2014. I hope you had a good New Years and wish everyone a lot of luck on the coming Year. I've also updated the project status in header for 2014 listing my new approach.

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!
