Really enjoyable read through this thread. I've got my own collection of pirates and seeing your nice work makes me want to get back to them now!

To be honest, it’s a project I’ve put on the back burner for far too long myself.   Pirates are easy and fun to paint, especially as they are all different in appearance, have no sense of colour coordination, and you can play with a handful of them!

My biggest headache, is we rattled off nearly a dozen different rule sets we all seem to have dotted about so need to figure out what is best.   FFoL is ok, if a little basic.

Anyway, more models on my paint tray for the weekend……hopping to paint Hook, Smee and Wendy…..

For sure I can find a crocodile somewhere in my collection!

Anyway, beach ordered from Deepcut Studio for a game we are having in a week or so.

I think it will look good with some of my jungle along the back edge and a few palm trees…..just right for a small landing party looking to bury some loot.

Nice looking beach David.
How big is it & how much does it cost, may I ask?

I will let you know how I find it when it arrives.

Anyway, productive morning and finished painting the ships.   Won’t win prizes, but perfectly playable me thinks!

So now I have three ships painted.   I need to paint up some guns for two of them and I will be adding a painted scene to the back of the small boat in time.

Now that the project has a little impetus, time to get a few more minis painted before turning my attention to the port….talking of hitch…just seen the rather nice Black Tree design treasure island pirates.   Must get those on my xmas list,  anyone painted them?  How do they match up with say Black Scorpion?

Have you already got the cannons?
If you haven't, remember I have lots.

I have enough guns for these three cheers Pete, just need to paint them.

I do need to get (or cast) some canon barrels though as I have a few sub deck gun ports that need filling.

If you have any spare, I may may trade a few for the port defences….

A view from the paint table….

Started on the missing guns.   Also I fixed the jolly boats (tiller handles had snapped off two of them) and started painting.   The first civilians for Puerto Venganza….the Governor, his wife and daughter, a pair of merchants and a classy broad. 


I have a few bits on order..
Gibbet and a pair of Black Tree pirates
A pack of treasure chests
Gaming mat
A pack of Galloping Major sailors
Ratnik Civilians / merchants

I still have a handful of pirates to paint, including gun crews,  along with a couple of packs of Black Scorpion marines.

I need to start painting the buildings, and a lot of dockside cargo / supplies to make it “lived in”.

Should look nice and colourful.
