First up is the Egyptian Professor of Archaeology for the Ant-Hero/Villain. I pictures him as the unscrupulous rogue in the older films who either for personal gain or working for the undead mummy Pharaoh was always planning against the hero to get a relic or magic book. He often gave a friendly face before revealing his true motives. I suppose most often he was often the villain, but not always and has at times been portrayed as a crafty individual wanting to collect items that interested him and therefore was in competition with the hero rather then wanting his demise making him a kind of anti-hero of a sort at times.
The figure is a 28mm Coppelstone Casting and like all his figures an absolute pleasure to paint.
The second figure is this years Risk Taker theme in the form of the Archaeologist Adventurer is an obvious risk taker who will take any risk to achieve his goal as personified in the Indiana Jones films. He is a rogue to be sure and I suppose somewhat of a an anti-hero, but a above all a fantastic risk taker battling men, weather, elements, magic, insects, traps and animals and moving vehicles in his pursuits to get the object of his goal. This model fit the bill nicely and was an easy choice for my selection.
The figure is once again a brilliant a 28mm Coppelstone Casting a blast to paint up.
Both of these figures will give me 10pts.
This is my last entry for what has been a great challenge and my best so far. I've managed to break my 500 pts. ceiling, defeat my good friend Nick in a hard fought Bavarian Challenge and give a respectable showing in the Bronze to Steel Challenge. I wish to thank Curt for hosting yet another fantastic challenge and I hope to see all of us in the thick of it again next winter!
Thanks for viewing!
From Minion Tamsin:
Two very lovely pieces of Curtgeld there Christopher. You must have forgotten that Curtgeld figures are actually 20 points each, so this entry will grab you 40 points, not 10.
It's been great having you along once more - hope to see you for next year's festivities!
