Character Contest #H10 “Old West Villains”

This weeks contest takes us back in time to America's old west. Gunslingers and Indian fighters, stage coaches, and the pony express. Your challenge is to create the villain of an old west story. The bad guy that wanted to kill every good guy and still his woman. The guy that every man with a badge had to fight. I'm going to put a limit of three entries per person this week. Have fun and good

    Okay something is wrong, I can’t get anything to mask to anything else. I know how to do it right first off, I was trying to get a pistol into my guys hand so I tried other things then just tried anything to anything and its not masking for some reason. I even tried reloading the page. Ideas?

  2. Keith_Kanin says:

    It may be the hand you are trying to use. I have had had problems masking to scrtain hands. Try using several different hands to see if that may be the problem.

    Helene Malden and Martin Rowe might appear like an innocent dating couple, but looks can be deceiving. Helene works at saloons, serving drinks, dancing and singing (sometimes doing other things as well) while Martin clears out their victim’s pockets in poker table, while they both study the city staking out the “big prize”, be it the local bank, rich ranch owner’s house or another establishment. And before locals have time to say “sheriff” the couple is in the wind with a rich haul and they are preparing to start their coup again in another, unsuspecting town…

    Bobbie “The Butcher ” Barns

    Robert Barns got his nick name from the brutal way he tortures his victims before eventually killing them. He first shoots their hands so they can’t use their weapons. Then he shoots them in the knee to incapacitate them, and then proceeds to get close and personal with his knife.

    Can somebody tell me how to put a new avator by my post. I’m tired of looking at this blank face avatar.

    Jane “La Belle” Oakley survived much abuse when the Yankees came to burn her home and kill her family. Left for dead, she became one of the fastest and deadliest gunslingers in the West. A well-educated woman whose murdered husband was a lawyer, she uncovered the identities of her attackers and spent her time hunting down those surviving blue-belly veterans, wherever and whomever they were.

    A rough and tumble lady bushwhacker, ’cause why should the men have all the fun (and the loot).

  10. TOOL says:

    I dunno what was up with the masking the other day but it was working fine today. Heres what I came up with.

    here’s my entry…

    Barry Romero “the Stalker” …. looks like a hunk but he’s wanted for multiple murder, rape, theft, and just being a complete a-hole.
    $90,000 reward…

    Disreguard that link, I meant this one, I deleted that pic but its still coming up when I click on it, weird, anyways.

    TOOL, that is seriously wicked man!

    Here’s My Contribution.

    El Diablo Cazador

    His name is spoken in hushed tones in bars and saloons around the west. Nothing is known about him, save that his aim is impeccable and once you’ve been marked for death by him, you will not see another sunrise. Witnesses claim that he has shrugged off bullets and even cannon-fire, leading the people to call him El Diablo Cazador, “The Demon Gunner.”

  14. NateThePrate says:

    Number 2. A bit simpler, but it’s something I wanted to try out. Didn’t *quite* work out like I wanted, but I think you all get the idea.

    The Phantom Sheriff:

    Sheriff Ernest Hayes was a good man, ever vigilante in safeguarding the small town of Greenmeadows, until a Navajo Shaman placed a curse on him, rendering him completely invisible to all but himself. Presented with new opportunities for personal gain, Hayes slowly became more twisted as he discovered he could have anything or anyone that he wanted.

    Knowing that he couldn’t be stopped, Hayes seized total control over Greenmeadows, ruling the citizens through fear and terror…

    Sally Jane was the daughter of a poor farmer. When her family farm was seized by the bank, she ran away and became a gun for hire.

  16. Skybandit says:

    Doctor Alexei Poisson, called “Professor Poison” by the press, was a surgeon from Louisiana who experimented with various drugs on human subjects. At first he used his concoctions on his own slaves and later on POW’s at Andersonville during the War of Northern Aggression. Condemned to hang for his crimes there, he managed to drug his jailers and escape to the Wild West. While no stranger to firearms, he prefers to utilize rattlesnake venom on his cavalry saber in personal combat.

    “Bloody Mary” O’Hara rose to infamy as the madame of the toughest cat house in Carson City. Nobody dared mess with one of her girls or, as Mary would say, “Your pretty little wife will find herself a pretty little widow. Don’t worry darlin’ … I’ll take her in.”

  18. Keith_Kanin says:

    Nammed for his unusual peeper, “Dead Eye” Dan has an uncanny knack for finding himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. People just keep wanting to kill him. Unfortunatly for them, Dan just happens to be the fastest gun in the west. Dan has left corpses in the streets of every state in the union. Unfortunately for Dan, the law doesn’t make exceptions for giun slingers. So now Dan is wanted, dead or alive.

    Ok here’s another one from me…

    Lee Jensen was a good loving family man. But when his wife and his daughter was murdered by the mayor’s henchmen, he sold his soul to the devil to give him power and immortality to destroy his enemies and seek vengeance, but in return he has to kill an innocent year after year…

  21. prswirve says:

    Damn blaq_aries, if El Jefe and El Diablo teamed up, they’d probably wipe the floor with everyone else here ;P

    Phineas J. Pigmaillion III, AKA “The Pigman”, is a ruthless criminal mastermind! Involved in extortion, blackmail, white slavery, opium dealing, bootlegging, train robbery, bank robbery and supplying the local Indian tribe with rifles and whiskey! He owns the local sheriff and his deputies as well as the region’s circuit judge. But he’s NOT a murderer…just don’t get on his bad side. He might feed you to his the hogs!
