So here's the WIP for my summer exchange mini, 03482 Lauren Silver sail, elf pirate.




She was primed white, and then washed with Army Painter "Dark" tone to bring out the shadows; this was done as a blacklining step, as well as bringing the white primer down a step.




The skin was done with the Rosy Skin triad; shown here is, I believe, Rosy Shadow.




This is where my picture taking started breaking down; I painted a lot at Paint Night with friends. Her hair is Auburn Shadow; her skirt is blood red; we're on the mid tone of Rosy Skin, and her eyes are Sapphire Blue... I think. I was ambivalent on the red hair & blue eyes combination, since I'm used to red hair and green eyes together, but my brother pulled up some pictures of Molly Queen (Alexis from Castle) and my troubles were soothed.

Oh, and her shirt began with P3 Underbelly Blue, which was then brought up to Pure White.




We've begun the leathers here, I see; Oiled Leather for the gloves and boots, Ruddy Leather for the belt and hat. Blood Red on her lips; hair has been brought up with Carrot top Red, skirt has been shaded (Blood Red toned down with Brown Liner) and highlighted (Blood Red and Linen White).




And here she shows off her booty; I didn't WIP it, unfortunately, but it was under coated Brown Liner, the coin pile drybrushed gold, the chest done with Intense Brown and AP Weapon Bronze.

So... a lot going on here. Looks like I've gone over the leathers with Brown Ink (Formula P3), done the sword blade (based Ultramarine Shadow; P3 Pig Iron for the base coat, P3 Cold Steel for highlights), painted the hilt (based Mahogany Brown, dry brushed P3 Blighted Gold); did more work on the booty (painted coins and sword hilt True Silver, did the lamp by the chest in P3 Brass Balls); and did her base with Army Painter Desert Yellow.


At some point in there, I did her skin Rosy Highlight, as well, and touched up her hair with Carrottop Red mixed with Linen White, since I don't have Highlight Orange to finish the Red Hair Triad.




Then I rough out the mini-diorama I have in mind...

Begun work on the base, we have: as you saw last post, I painted the inside of this 50mm round base (Warmachine large) AP Desert Yellow, and wrote the piece's title, my handle, and the year around the lip. Then I PVA'd sand from the beach here in Virginia Beach, using brush-on sealer to lock the sand in place.

And now the end of the series: more sand glued over the old to help the treasure chest and Lauren's little sand dune blend in.



And then pictures were taken, she was packed up, and shortly after she went to her new home in Georgia. ::):


Hope you've enjoyed this series; sorry I didn't take more detailed pictures of the steps!

      Not seen many painted examples of this mini, which is odd because I love the pose and demeanour of her. I've sketched in the basic colours but it's not really speaking to me at this point. I think I could do something with tweaking some shades and maybe introducing a spot colour to lift it. I can't decide how to paint the tassles, for example. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears - which reminds me, I added big elfy ears to the model, should it look odd to anyone. I'd love to see anyone else's version of this mini, too.

      Finished these off. Really easy to paint and enjoyed the process. Reaper Razig shown on right for scale.

      I recently finished playing Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire and felt the urge to paint something piratey.  There is a lot of room for improvement, and I regret my colour scheme (It is lacking a bit of contrast) but I still enjoyed painting this one, I even felt adventurous enough to attempt some weathering on the sword which didn't turn out as horrible as I anticipated.  Overall a good learning exercise.

      Have painted up this motley crew to add to the pirate skirmish collection I seem to be building. 
      The Dwarf is from the Pirates of the Dread Sea kickstarter, from a micro company in the UK. 
      The big orc is an ogryn from Privateer Press. 
      The chap with a musket has been painted as a half orc, he is a Reaper mini from the Warlord line.

      Have finished off these skeleton pirates. They are all Reaper minis from the Razig faction in the Warlord line. 
      Really enjoyed painting these. I worked up from a cream paint spray and a sepia wash. Lots of brighter but desaturated colours for the cloth and lots of rust and brass tones for the metal. The bases are resin, from a company called MVP. I used a sepia wash again at the end of the process and then an all over drybrush with beige. 
      The plan is to pit these against the orc pirates I have been working on. I also have some Freebooter Fate minis and some dwarf and halfling pirates from elsewhere. Plus a load of Reaper pirates. Aaaargh.
