From DaveD: 54mm Cowboy (12 points)


Dave treats us with another of his 54mm cowboys.

From Dave:
Here we have a further 54mm addition. "Poncho" man...he is by  Pegaso Models. While not as absolutely finely detailed at the Andrea equivalents , still very well sculpted and cast. Of course the increased scale means no easy options with the poncho patterns. 
I really enjoyed the challenge of this one. I have spent some time perusing various catalogues and now have. "Little list" of target figures. I want to take this Old West adventure on a stage from the the 28's shoot em up to something perhaps a little more personal for the characters.  My mind is full of ideas with this, as much as the possible spectacle of the larger scale. 
So I am looking for a name for him people.. Let's have your ideas..

Oh and I think there was a certain other character who wears a poncho... :-)

Hmm, he looks like a Charlie to me. 'Charlie Harlson' perhaps? Anyway, he's brilliant and I really like the pattern you created for his poncho.

Charlie Harlson and his amazing poncho will give Dave 12 points. Lovely work Mr. D!
