I have never seen this miniature. You did a marvelous job!

Thanks pogre!  I couldn't tell you off hand, but it's probably already been four or five years since this one was released, and she'd just been in my mountain of metal since then.  I've always wanted to paint her, but I finally took advantage of the fact that I'm working on another half-orc to do their skin tones at the same time, and she was far more simple to paint than the other one, so she got done first!

Splendent job on the skin tone ! Might I ask your reciepe? Again lovely work.

Thanks very much!   For half orc skin, I usually start out with Creamy Ivory, then start out with a Pale Olive wash, and then afterwards I think I used some darker greens, Camoflauge green and forest green.  Then after those I think I used the dark elf skin color, then a dark shadow, then after that dark elf shadow and lastly walnut brown.  After that I did a highlight layer of Creamy Ivory and finally white.


I was looking at the photos last night of the eyes and I'm really not too happy with them, so this morning I woke up early to try to work on them a bit.  I wanted to take pictures but it's too cloudy right now, need to get some sun, so hopefully tomorrow.

So I did a little edit on top, because I wasn't satisfied with her eyes and still not satisfied really but can't dwell on her forever. Here is an updated version in case you missed it above:




No idea if anybody can tell a difference or not or if anybody even cares....


drives me crazy though!

      My daughters ship needed a steering wheel, so I bought the Drunken pirate and put him on the bridge.
      Took the Photos before adding the sails. So you have a better view on the decks.

      Sea Storm is a resin female pirate bust from Altores Studios in 1/9th scale. The piece is basically the head/body, the hat, pipe, and a loop earring. I replaced the earring with copper wire. Apart from some mold trash where the coat and torso meet, there were no major issues. Primed with my dwindling supply of Floquil Railroad Colors' Gray Primer and painted with Reaper acrylics.

      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.

      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.
