And so be ye.
So let's all drink rum

Ye be the captain
and I be first mate
We both be drunken pirates

Follow'n the map
X shows us tha way
To booty and plunder
On Talk Like a Pirate Day!
How can there not be a talk like a pirate day thread here?
Perhaps it should be Paint (like) a Pirate day.
Perhaps we should all try and paint a pirate today? Yarr. I be thinkin I'll try.
This is my second entry into the Reaper Facebook Convert and Paint contest. I wanted to do this one because I love doing dragonman (dragonborn) conversions. There just aren't enough kinds of dragonmen to model for various character classes. And I'm glad that the catfolk minis came out within the last year because when I think about dragonmen, I like to see their clawed hands and feet, so it makes them great for such a conversion in my eyes.
These were the minis used for parts, including pieces from the dragonman conversion kit: 03457.
Poor Shadoweyes got her head and tail cut off. Then I had to do some filing and filling to smooth out the cuts (particularly in the back because the tail was sculpted against the backs of the right leg and sword) and some of the fur pattern on her arms and legs. Also had to create small bit armor at the base of the tail so the pieces flowed together well. All Captain Razig lost was his hat and added a head and tail from the conversion kit.
Originally, she was going to be green with dark purple/red armor. But after I got the original base coats on, I felt she looked too much like a lizard and not a dragon, so I switched it up.
She ended up being the winner. I was shocked. I figured I might place, but pretty as she is, I didn't think this was one of my better pieces. But she was fun to do and I'm glad the Reaper folks put together this event.
And now, because I still feel bad about chopping off Shadoweyes' head, I'm using a portion of the winnings to buy another one to paint!
As with the other ghosts, I was playing around with quickly airbrushing a ghost effect. I liked the green tone of these Bones 4 minis, but I'm not a big fan of translucent figures. I wanted to paint over them, but keep the ghost vibe. These are much greener in person. I like them, but I think the blue ghosts in the other thread turned out a tad better. These ended up a hair too bright for what I was going for, but it's all in the name of science! I might glaze them down a bit later.
