For my submission for the villains challenge, I present the Man Eating Lions of Tsavo. The original lions were notorious for eating railway workers in British East Africa in the Late Victorian era. They have been immortalized in books, films (The Ghost and the Darkness) and in stuffed form at the Field Museum in Chicago (I've included a shot of the real McCoy at the Field). They decided that humans were more abundant, slower and tastier than regular Lion Chow.

The figures are 28mm Ral Partha lionesses and were primed at least 10 years ago and possibly in the last millennium! The original lions were males, but male Tsavo lions are maneless and a little sickly so it works as the other key differences between lions and lionesses are not visible on the figures. I added a potential victim, gifted to me by Padre Mike in one of his visits last year.
The longest lived lion took numerous rifle hits and finally succumbed to 3 close range shots from a Martini-Henri.
Recent scientific research as reduced the number of kills accredited to these two puddy-tats. Chemical analysis shows that one lion consumed 10.5 and 24.2 humans respectively. Personally I think there are some questions that science doesn't need to answer.
