'Risk Taker' from MarkG - 'Old Blood and Guts'
I decided to pick General Patton for my Gambler/Risk-Taker submission. I think it fair to say that he took a good share of risks during his campaigns in WW2, especially in the relief of Bastogne.
I have an abiding memory of when I was seven, our school thinking that it would impart some kind of moral fiber, being herded into the assembly hall to watch the film Patton. I'm not sure it imparted anything, other than an appreciation of what a towering actor George C. Scott was; the opening scene is a classic: Patton (film) opening scene
The figure (which seems to be modelled on this scene) is from Warlord games, and has crisp details which paint up well.
This will also be the figure that I will be sending to Curt as my Challenge participation fee. I hope he likes it.
