Please find below my anti-hero fortnight challenge and challenge entry fee (the dreaded double-whammy). I present to you Hans, a German DAK tank officer who watched too many Western movies in Dusseldorf as a child in the ’30s so fancies himself as a Teutonic version of Wyatt Earp. His western-hero delusions have gone so far as he often refers to himself Hauptmann Rittmeister Von Earp.
Hans was last seen near El Alamein standing in front of his disabled Panzer III and attempting to quick draw against his English foe. Unfortunately for Hans, that foe wasn’t some British Desert Rat officer with a clumsy Webley revolver, it was against a platoon of shiny M4 Shermans. Teutonic until the end.
The figure is in 28mm scale and is from the Perry WW2 DAK line. It’s a bit of an odd sculpt from the Panzer crewman set but fits perfectly for an anti-hero with a bit of a western theme for the Challenge.
