This boat is at LOT smaller than the one in the mummy returns, it is just large enough for one person.


Assembled the boat itself and added some rigging and a rope for the anchor. Ready for primer. The sailor I will paint separately.

Not sure about how the make the sail. I'm thinking paper unless I get a better idea.

Linen tends to look too coarse on minis scale.


Taffeta can be fun, especially if you find one with a fine stripe or changeable taffeta (warp is one color, weft another, so that it shimmers and changes color depending on the angle).

Put a base-coat on the boat.


Started on the helmsman / pilot (how do you call him if the boat is flying? :rock: )


This one is really fighting me, I have done his eye several times, but I can't seem the get it right. The other eye has an eye patch.


You would call him Captain!  Also Helmsman works regardless of the craft as he is manning the helm.

      I'm pretty pleased with this one, samurai-style armour is harder to paint than I thought, but I like how his tentacles came out.
      As always any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      And here is a quick paint of one of the Bones V Brinewind pirates - he's an NPC known as Jacob the uneven - a sailor with vitiligo. Not too bad for a speedpaint.
