From Martin C - Dead Man's Hand - CurtGeld (20 points)
On the 2nd August 1876 Jack McCall walked into a saloon in Deadwood and shot James Bulter "Wild Bill" Hickok in the back of the head, killing him instantly. Nobody knows why McCall, an unsuccessful gambler, killed Wild Bill but it's a pretty easy guess. It bought to an end the colourful life of one of the most successful gamblers and gunslingers in the West. Wild Bill's final unfinished hand in the game of 5 card draw was 2 pair, aces and eights with 1 unknown card to draw, aces and eights know as the Dead Man's Hand from that day forward
The figure is from Artizan Designs and is a cool figure. He needs varnishing but I hope you like him
Martin its one of my favourite figures from the Artizan wild west ones. He's made many an appearance in my games - and always ends up dead! I think the choice certainly fits the bill both gambler and risk taker so lets hope Curt yours is far luckier...
