I’d missed this topic and it was only by the sheerest accident that I found it (ie you told me about it ;)).

You’re in full, magnificent Snapcase mode on this one and it all looks splendid so far. I’m loving The Watch in particular and the boats/ships promise to be lip-smackingly fab.

I relied on Google Translate for that (the only Dutch I speak is of the Double variety) and if you retranslate it back to English, it’s slightly different to what was intended. Close enough, though....😀

I've been catching all this on the blog but it looks even better at one sitting.

Also on the laptop the pictures are bigger, and I can see you have a Dolphin behind the island, I thought you were getting Sharks!!! We can't be eaten by Dolphins!!!

I've been cracking on with painting my Pirate crew, I got them out of the box, lined them up and thought that's going to need a lot of black paint and put them away again. There's plenty of time before November. ;)

You are being very inspirational though.

Some possible features will be:

•   Ship to ship battles at sea
•   Attack the fort
•   Governor’s daughter kidnapped
•   Giant sharks
•   Treasure of various sizes hidden in a myriad of locations
•   The possibility of seizing treasure from other players
•   Cannibals in the Voodoo Village
•   Monster in the swamp
•   Free the slaves
•   Wanton wenches in abundance
•   Kidnap the Governor

I notice that you forgot to mention the casual mermaid encounter...

Thanks to Doug, Hu Rhu, Vagabond and Michi for your kind comments.

Sharks are on their way. The Dolphins are merely there to add to the ambience.   ;)

Michi, you are absolutely right. To correct my error I have ordered a Reaper mermaid from eBay. Thanks for pointing that out!

A few more characters for the game. Seen here from left to right we have Charles Carson, a mysterious prisoner, Old Scrotingsack and Madame Moulay. See below for more detail.



Carson (as he is referred to by the Governor) is the Governor's Majordomo and maintains order in Government House. No-one knows anything about the mysterious prisoner in the iron mask. He is kept in solitary confinement in the cells at Fuerte Indigestión, under constant watch of a detachment of Royal Marines under the command of a certain Captain Flack. Scrotingsack is the personal servant of Captain Teatime Snapcase and presents an ancient and wrinkled appearance. He is totally loyal to the Captain, even if somewhat put-upon. Madame Moulay is in fact a soucouyant, she looks like an old crone by day but at night she is said to shed her skin and suck the blood of her victims.

The three figures on the left were painted for the pirate game, Madame Moulay has been abducted from my stalled Witchfinder project.

Good move M'Lord! I am happy to call myself a lucky owner of several of that species.
Even my vessel is called after them - Merry Mermaid. I admit that the name of Doug's ship could have been appropriate as well, although I doubt that his figurehead is as elaborate as mine...  :D

Ah, now those are lovely indeed!    :-*  I think I have ordered the one on the right.

Doug may get a figure head on his ship, but I haven't finished painting Het Geile Wijf yet!

Finished some more figures this morning.

Finally the Governor of Islas de Pasaje de Vuelta makes an appearance. The Governor is none other than Sir Frobisher Fotheringay-Featherstonhaugh. He has just taken delivery on the quayside of his new mobile strong-box, straight off the boat from Bristol. I wonder if this might be the target of future raids by nefarious pirates? He is currently addressing the lugubrious Mr. Jaggers, "Well Jaggers, what do you think of me new cart, eh?". Mr. Jaggers is the Governor's legal advisor and as such, he makes important decisions such as how much of the Island taxes can Sir Frobisher help himself to without getting caught. Naturally, Mr. Jaggers has already helped himself to a small percentage as well, for administrative costs, you understand? Carson hovers in the background, deferentially awaiting any requests his lord and master may make.

Will those be called Highwaymen or Marines while operating on land???  :D
