Pirate lady; mage knight repaint

Recommended Posts

I've just started watching the TV show Black Sails (yeah, I know it's been on for 3 seasons already, you hush ::P:  ) and it put me in the mood to paint some pirates. This is an old Mage knight figure; it was called Xandressan Captain. She certainly looks like a pirate to me, so she got a quick makeover.

 

Tabletop paint as usual; I think the most interesting part about the figure is her base. I made the ship's deck from toothpicks, which I first stained and then used several different inks to try and give it an interesting appearance. The base took at least as long as the figure; measuring, cutting, and placing the 'boards' took forever! I like the way it came out, though.

 

I hope you like her.

Black Sails is a great show.

 

I really like your deck there. That's impressive work, and I'm sure that in person it really looks great since you used actual wood.

      Honestly didnt realize the size of this figure when I'd ordered her. Came in and I was like, oooh she's giantkin or some kind of goliath. 
      Mine also had a hole in the base, but since I was extending the metal plate out to fit on a plastic base anyone, no worries.

      Here he is based.  Tried messing around with water effects.  Cool stuff!

      Unfurl the mainsails and weigh anchor!  Finally got around to showing off this fantastic pirate captain mini.  Though I've collected quite a few pirate minis in preparation for a nautical D&D campaign, this model was the first I have painted outside of the LTP Kit.  I felt he was missing something pretty important so I sculpted a hat for him.  Pretty happy with the result.  You can see more about how I painted him and my other nautical-themed minis in my Dark Tide WIP thread HERE.
       


       
      I am most proud of the jacket and sleeves which I wanted to appear as worn leather.  I think I was successful.  I look forward to painting up a crew for this captain.  Recently discovered a few pirate crews from Warmachine that are calling my name.

      Got around to painting a blackstar corsair I modified last year. I figured a pirate always could use some more guns on their suit

      Finally finished this one.  She was a fun exercise in patience. I had completed the main Sophie, but had neglected the wings for a few months.  I didn't put as much detail in the wings as i did the rest of her but I'm still pleased with the outcome.  I thought the purple trim on the hat was fun. 
      Added white buttons to help things pop out a bit, which seemed to work well.
