The Pirate Life suits the Girl; she will never have to worry about drowning. She certainly is a BEAUTIFULLY painted creation. VERY WELL DONE!

Thanks for the kind comment Jasonator.

To be clear it is ONE bust, I left the hat and bustier off for the first set of pics, the bustier is not glued on the final version either.

I loved the options and didn't want to choose..

 

I still need to improve on things, but I'm happy with her as is.

Thanks Al!

 

She was a lot of fun to paint although I had to skip my first idea for painting the bustier sheer.

I need more practice to pull that off.

The bandana was freehand which I think worked.

The rust effect on the plinth is from the Vallejo Special Effects Set.

She's just stunning! I've been following the WIP so I know how much work you put into her and it was well worth it!

 

 

Thank you!

I learn a little bit more every time I paint a larger mini or bust.

I love painting busts, I've already got the next one lined up!

Especially impressed with the Macaw, headscarf and rusty base.

 

Thanks!

The macaw is copied from a picture, I already painted a smaller version for my 54mm Maria Roseblade.

Headscarf was freehand and the rust is Vallejo Rust, Dried Rust and P3 Pig Iron.

Captain Scarlet came out great. Wonderful work on her.

 

I have got one remark though: One of her eyes looks out of place.

 

But maybe that is absolutely understandable. Of course she is suffering from paranoia. A long life as a pirate lets you have your eyes just everywhere. Enemies, bouys, shallow waters ... always have an eye checking your port side and one on the starboard side.

      So for awhile now I've had this goal, nay, this desire, nay, this primal compulsion to build a boat.  It is not enough to have hand drawn maps, or 2D terrain tiles.  I need a fully functioning 3D boat!  Well, maybe not fully functioning.  But I want to build a cool boat!
       
      I've been working on a nautical campaign full of swashbuckling, sailing, and sea monsters for a few years now.  It's my White Whale project.  Always just on the horizon.  It'll happen some day, but in the meantime, I have a million small projects to complete and extend the chase.  One of which is my desire to build a few different sized ships to enliven any possible naval combat.
       
      I actually attempted this about two years ago, just winging it and making some measurements and throwing them at some craft supplies.  I wanted a cheap option that wasn't too difficult to repeat that way I wouldn't be discouraged from making multiple ships.  So I limited it to cheap crafting materials like foamcore, wooden dials, popsicle sticks, and thumbtacks.  And the result wasn't  bad.  Especially for my first attempt at any kind of terrain building.


      It actually turned out rather nice!  To my surprise.  But I got hung up on mast and sail designs and never finished.

      The wood on the deck had 2x1in grid carved into it for easier D&D use.

      and the figurehead was designed to be modular.

      However, overtime the boat collected dust and little scratches.  I should have given it a coat of mod podge or sealant of some kind, but never did.  And eventually it had an unfortunate run in with an injured owl that we took in for a night.

      Here's the little devil himself.
       
      Anyways, I put this project on the back burner for long enough and feel inspired to dive back in.  Especially with a certain Bones ship on the Horizon that I'm still on the fence about getting.  I was doing some browsing on the web and recently found this wonderful little blog complete with loose instructions and a plan from a now defunct wargamming site.  The blog creator had found the old plan and adapted it to build something using most of the same materials I have already stockpiled. 


      There's a few choices that I like better than my first attempt so I think I'm going to use this as some inspiration as I give this boat thing another go.

      My hold up now is still those darn masts.  The original plan above used wood and required drilling out holes for the masts.  The blogger use foam for his ship and found random bits of tubing to house his masts.  I could try to find something random like that, but I was hoping to find something simpler for easy repetition.  And I would also like to keep the masts loose so they can be removed for easy storage, or to swap out the sails.  Any thoughts?

      Any resources, tips, recommendations are very welcome!  I'll post back here with any updates.

      Printed this out a while ago and made a base for her with the Greenstuffworld Cobblestone Roller and a twig.
      The primer came out a bit chalky will try to remedy that. But for now I've basecoated her boots.
      Leather can be a bit rough so it's alright.

      I got my Mega Bundle for ReaperCon a few days ago.  I was floored by the resin sculpt by Jason Weibe (@GwydionGreen), Dead Men Tell No Tales.  I knew immediately that I wanted to paint it; I didn't know though that I wanted to paint it immediately, but I guess I did, as I couldn't stop thinking about it.
       
      Originally, I was going to do it as a challenge, where-by I could only use the paints included in the Mega Bundle...but I have had a change of heart.  I had started doing just this, but the lack of yellow choices (Rattlesnake Leather was it) really limited what I could do with mixing, and this is too nice of a sculpt to give it anything but my best.
       
      Anyway, I'm getting ahead of myself.
       
      I started by cleaning everything and removing the mold lines. The boat was pretty bad and I was forced to remove some of the runes and make it look like weathering to get the mold lines off.  The rest was really good though.
       

       
      Then I primed and started painting.  I primed it with Army Painter White.  It went on a bit grainy.  Maybe my can is getting old.  At first, I didn't think it was too bad, but after painting the stone of the throne and the wood of the ship, I got really discouraged.  The paint wasn't adhering to the primer right; it was like painting unwashed Bones with diluted paint.  It took me an hour just to paint what you see here.  Second, the rough texture was really showing up.
       

       
       
      So, right now it is soaking in the Simple Green.  I hope to get that primer off and try again tonight.

      So as hinted in my US Armored Company thread, here's the beginning of @Glitterwolf's Dragoons!
       
      Some work on the Dutch tonight, PTRLs and C&Vs Had a problem with the wash I put on them last night, so had to re do the base coat. Tried a different wash, seen on one of the C&Vs, so need to try something else... Thanks for looking! SGT G   link to my US force
