Patton -- Reincarnated Carolingian Knight
Although it does not look like my Weird War II game will get off the ground anytime soon, I'm still going to continue to periodically post my "weirded" versions of WWII era figures. I hope to use them someday. Besides, I learn a lot and it's a lot of fun!
"We will get the name of killers and killers are immortal"
I knew the major details of the life and career of General George S. Patton -- fiery personality, prescient in his use of tanks and armored units, tactically brilliant, almost canned for slapping a solider while in North Africa, feared by the Nazis, hated the Russians, and wanted to conquer Germany but ran out of gas (seriously). But here are a few things I didn't know:
- Became a "Master of the Sword" after spending time in intense study with one of the greatest swordsmen in all of Europe. This happened after. . .
- He placed 5th in the pentathlon in the 1912 Olympics. Afterwards, he traveled throughout Germany before heading to France to study fencing.
- He then designed a cavalry saber for the U.S. Army and wrote an manual detailing its use.
- Saved the Lipizzaner Stallions from the advancing Soviet Army.
Maybe someone in the Ahnenerbe gets wind of this spirit connection and tries to destroy the relics associated with the inhabiting spirit, crippling one of the Allies' best generals. . .
Or maybe the spirit finally gets the upper hand when Patton becomes bored as governor of Bavaria, leading to the mobilization of the U.S. Third Army against the Soviets and the outbreak of World War III.
