"The Rage"

I finished the figure that I wanted to paint for my friend, Owen.

I considered painting striped pants and tattoos, but I ran out of time.
And the tattoos were really going to push my freehand skills,
so I decided to "play it safe".
A Convict Gunslinger for Malifaux.
"The Rage" is Owen's nickname among his NOVA Open fans.

I wanted to thank Owen for two things:
  1. Giving me his back-catalog of White Dwarf magazines, which I have enjoyed immensely (and will continue to enjoy for some time to come, since I have enough back-issues to keep me entertained for a few years!).  I missed the hobby during its heyday in the 90's, and flipping through these old White Dwarf magazines has been a satisfying way to experience the hobby "for the first time" vicariously. 
  2. I also wanted to thank Owen for all he does to help organize and run the NOVA Open.  Owen volunteers a lot of his free time and energy to be an executive board member; plan the convention throughout the year; coordinate volunteers, vendors, and contributors; build and manage much of the IT infrastructure; run events; build terrain; and much more. Incredible dedication.
Thank you, Owen!
