I believe some may remember when I posted I was thinking about doing this, and I have officially received the main part of the mini from Privateer Press for use with the Ghost Pirates from the Bones 4 kickstarter I will be getting so I can combine the two :) This is model called "Skarre, Admiral of the Black Fleet" from Privateer Press that I just got:

With that in mind, I will be not building it with the crew, and using these from Bones 4 instead:

Of course, they will be the green versions ;)

 

Over the weekend, I got the Skarre model in the mail, and started working on it. The main ship is unpainted ATM, but looks like thus:

The spirits on the bottom I now have primed and painted. Sorry for the images, the green actually stands out a bit more than what the pictures are showing and I can't find the right light to give a true representation of it right now.

And, I almost forgot... The Pirates will be painted up like this, so that the stuff like the wood planks, treasure chest, etc will be solid colored, but the spirit will be inked and drybrushed:

As I get more completed, I will definitely be posting more pics! I wish I could say that the Ghost Pirates were what I was waiting for with baited breath, but there was way too much cool stuff from that kickstarter for me to say that it was only the Ghost Pirates I'm excited about LOL

Arrrrrrhh. Does the mast carry through into** the gun-deck? I canna tell from the photos.

Sort of. If you notice in the Reaper pic, the ghosts are inside the middle of the remains of the ship. If you look in the middle of my WIP front pic, there is a piece of a mast sticking down. I think the way it's designed is that the mast would have gone down to the gun level where the ghosts are coming up from the bottom. So, it won't connect with the gun deck, but it's made to look like it used to before it was sank. I just looked at the picture from PP, and it looks like they painted the bottom part of the mast in green like they did the spirits (probably didn't think about it being there I would gather).

I was planning on making a removable mast/sail

You could probably do that. I would imagine you could magnetize it rather easily, you would just need to chop off the nub at the bottom of the mast and dig out a space for the magnet where it goes.

A small update. I painted up the gun deck (which I haven't glued into place yet). I went with a rusted gunmetal look for the cannons and tried to do a algae edged look on the wood planks. I liked the plank look enough I'm going to try to do that with the rest of the ship planks! The white on the very tips of the boards is an attempt to make it look like the very ends where the boards have broken are rotting a little. It's coming along!

Had some extra time this weekend to paint some more. Nowhere near complete on this, as I have a lot of touch-up on the brown to do, some more wash to apply, and then a bunch of dry brush and then the windows on the back and sides to do, but it's coming along well so far! Won't probably be able to work on it this week at all as I have some college class mid terms this week.

It also gives the wood a ghostly look, which really meshes well with the piece.

I really didn't expect to have a lot of time to paint this week do to having an exam on Wednesday, but it ended up not taking up as much time I had thought it would... So, I painted a lot more! Actually have the ship and spirits to the point that I can say I'm ready for the Ghost Pirates now! I REALLY need to figure out how to get the lighting better on the pics, but these turned out ok. The Green seems more subdued on the spirits than I had hope for now that the ship is attached to them. I need to figure out what to do with the base, too, and not sure how I want to do that up. Although, I did just notice as I was writing up this post that I didn't do the barnacles on the bottom of the ship, so I need to do those too :)

 

Thoughts/critiques? Should I do a touchup of the bronze color on the roofing now that I have the patina effect on it along the edges?

We're still waiting on that last container of Bones for the kickstarter, and so I've been painting up Bones 1 and 2 stuff as I wait. Had a few pirates waiting in line,  so painted them up, and they are now the temporary crew of the HMS Spectre
