Blue, those look pretty good for being 'last minute', nice job.

Abu, great scene. Love the color and the variety in the pirates!

Greetings


oh I love both of them.

Is that a Langton Ship? Or GHQ?

Great job

Love both entries: such great characterful painting on both!

Abu, you always use an interesting staging/composition to tell a great story. It's become a real trademark of yours. My favourite touch is the out-of-focus ship in the background.

Both very nicely painted :)

Abu -if I remember right, in the main thread you were saying you weren't sure it really worked for your ship looking like it was far in the distance? well, it works: well. nice effect

Thanks all, and best of luck Blue.

The skulls are made by Moonlight Miniatures.  They do a whole range of skeleton piratey stuff. I mostly like the scenics, treasure chests, skulls, etc.

The ship is a Langton. So much fun to build.

Well done guys you've both been consistently good through this LPL

I think they are a pretty small shop so it's unlikely.  Does customs, etc. make it impractical to buy direct from them?

Great use of scale and perspective Abu Iskander. Very nicely done indeed. Wish i'd thought of that... I might borrow the idea for LPL7! (Conquistadors coming ashore perhaps, apropos Apocalypto  ::))

Blue, i love the face on the Governer or Admiral or whoever he is. Just perfect  lol
