The theme this year is a "risk-taker, a gambler or daredevil"... I did not exactly understand what he was looking to, as a risk-taker or gambler looked to me different species. Anyway, after consulting with Curt to clarify the issue, I decided to think about characters related to the projects I was planning to use in the contest. But who could fit in that role?.
The model is a Warlord reference and I have painted as he is featured in the film: German Lustwaffe blue officer hat, black leather fly jackect, British paratrooper trousers and jumping boots (you may remember than in the film, the commando unit arrived to England disguised as Polish paratroopers under British service), Sten Gun and the Cross of Iron in the neck.
A joy to paint, of course I acquired two models, one for Curt and the other to lead my Fallschirmjager unit on the table.
Brilliant! Steiner is an excellent example of a 'risk-taker'. 'The Eagle has Landed' is one of my all-time favorite war movies. Warlord provided a fabulous casting of Steiner and you've done a cracking job on him Benito. I wonder if they'll ever produce any of the other characters from the film. A Devlin, Col. Pitts or Molly would be great (Ahh, Jenny Agutter was lovely in that film..., well, she is pretty much lovely in anything she's done actually... <ahem>).Benito will get 20 points for Oberst Steiner and a great big Thank You from me!
