I added some Casting Room WSS British to fight my pirates, quite happy with these and fun to paint:

Added these two civilians. The man is from Redoubt's FIW range, the lady is Front Rank. Happy with how that yellow turned out!

Ok, these aren't really pirates, nor are they historical, but since they're a part of the same project and Halloween's right around the corner:





Full post here: https://dawnofthelead.com/2016/10/23/from-the-painting-desk-44-horrors-of-the-deep/

These will be used in a Halloween pirate game next Saturday!

Both are great minis, and that crab mutant is going on my to-buy list, for sure!

A couple of new faces added!

Redcoat officer from Galloping Major (uniform definitely not accurate, this is Hollywood pirates)

Only just read your thread, the latest 3 have turned out well, I particularly like Mitchell.

I got this figure a couple of years ago and put him on one side because of his massive size but he looks fine here. Maybe its because you've painted him dark and sinister in comparison to the others that he's worked so well. As gamer Mac says the eyes stand out well.
