I've always been a huge fan of the "Steampunk" genre. That is, mixing the turn of the century style (the last century) with modern technology. A hi-tech low-tech hybrid.
I was excited for this contest because I could bring out one of my old role playing characters the Bionic Cowboy. This character was such fun, my friends and I even wrote up a role playing module around his version of the old west.
It was a world that mixed cyber-technology and gunslinging. A place where any Joe with two bits and a piece could be fitted for a DrawMaster 5000(TM) arm and try his luck as the west's newest outlaw. A place where steam technology met 200 MPH bullet trains.
Lots of fun!
The base figure is a Super Patriot variant. The left arm is replaced with the the arm from a regular Super Patriot.
Gloves are courtesy of FO Jigsaw.
The coat is from an MGS Revolver Ocelot, I think.
Gun belt and guns are from a Spawn fig.
Hat is donated from a Movie GR Scarecrow.
The chaps are actual leather with ports drilled in to allow for the steam vents.
The neckerchief is real cloth.
The figure sports at least 4 varieties of leather paint, plus several metallics including antique gold and brass to get that old world feel. The head connections are done in copper.
Hope you enjoy!!
