Yargh ye land lubber! Take to the sea...and sky?

Recommended Posts

Looks great. I like the colours and the Face. Also the hat fits very well. Will you add colour to the Base?

The contrasting colours of the wings look realy fine for me,  but it seems you used only a Wash on the basecoat. I would recommend to apply a thinned paint along the full wing lines. This needs only little time more and the results are much Cleaner than a wash in this case.

I really appreciate the feedback @Krassling, thank you. 


I haven't finished even touched basing on this one yet.  I feel like i kind of rushed my 2 previous bases and they ended up similar.  I have been trying to settle my excitement to rush to finish them to make the bases more fun.  We'll see.  Gotta come up with a fun theme for her. 


For the wings and wash, i couldn't agree more on your assessment.  I really wanted to hit them again with a layer, but chose not to because it's as good as she's going to get.  I have also touched up a few of my others in pursuit of perfecting them and ended up overdoing it.  I'll play with my next round of minis (already on the way) and see if i can improve my wash and highlight technique.  


I definitely took note of thinning the paint.  It may actually be one of the issues i have in trying to go over a washed area and it just comes out looking like bold strokes that reverse the wash effect.  Good point! 


More to come.

      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

      Hello everyone, here are pictures of a cute but deadly little lady goblin. 14178, Skralla the Reven Hero was sculpted by Jason Wiebe. I painted her with Reaper MSP paint.
      According to the rumours; Skralla grew up near the Shores of the Sea of Stars, far from Monglash. She heard the tales of Razig and his undead crew, and has always wanted to join them. Knowing that Razig would never accept her unless she proved herself a true pirate, she raided Aizen Krahl one night and emerged with one of the dwarves' coveted guns and a trail of bearded corpses behind her. Now that she has the guns, the murder, the pillaging, and the rumming down, she has thrown in her lot with Varaug in hopes of meeting Razig one day and joining him. If only she had stolen ammunition, or knew how to load the wretched thing. Still, it serves her well with a blade tied on, and maybe Razig can teach her shooting.
