The Capitan

An unparallelled swordmaster from Spain, the Capitan was secretly hired by the Commandante to pose as a masked hero for justice and gain Zorro's confidence in order to deliver him in the hands of the authorities. But Monastario may have gotten more than he bargained for as faced with the reality of the Commandante's oppression and the true nature of the "bandit" Zorro, the Capitan's innate sense of justice will make him question where his true loyalties should be...

The Capitan is a not-Zorro produced by Brigade Games, under the name "El Capitan". It can be found in the Western range. The small cactus on the base is from the Pegasus small cacti set. There are a few differences from the normal Zorro costume (the sleeveless vest instead of a cape), but the figure is too nice not to find a place for.

The background for the Capitan was taken from a storyline from the 1981 "The New Adventures of Zorro" cartoon. The character in that story was named "Mario", but I prefered to call him "The Capitan" in my interpretation of the character.

And a groupshot with all the painted models so far (my display board mock-up is starting to get crowded)...
