Here is the Ronin #15 for Curt's collection (it was the entry fee for the competition). This is an old figure from 'Clan War', and clearly has an heroic look to him, what with that huge Naginata. This guy has been sitting in a box for over 10 years so I'm glad to know he's going to a loving family. I had the choice between a couple of great Clan War figures, but this one was always my favourite.
The colour scheme is not based on anything historical, but rather based on the colours of the Crane clan (for those familiar with Legend of the five Rings), by far my favourite clan when I used to play a lot of the CCG and the RPG back in the days.

More seriously, I think the entry fee is a great idea, because not only does Curt sends money to the SPCA (a favourite cause of mine) for every Ronin he receives, but it makes one go out of their comfort zone and paint something they probably would not have painted otherwise. Great initiative Curt!
