I don't want to do a simple skulls&bones

How about a stylised one eyed bear's head with a crossed claw and sword underneath then? ;D

Eh, you got me there for a minute lol
I would rather not use the Bear Pirates crest though. At least not for these pirates.
Well I have time to think on it.

Ahoy!

Soo I should have put out a slow painter sign...
Anyway here is where I'm now. I have been concentrating on the Fortune Hunter's crew.









Half-eye got some paints as well, but the photos turned out bad, so no sense posting those.

Ahoy!

Our club had an all night long painting session on Friday (from 20 pm to 5 am), which helped me finish the pirates at last. So here they are. Bases will be done today (well that's the plan).

Captain Luna Sariss


First mate Mr. Gunn


Bosun One-Eye


Able seaman Mr. Dirk


Able seaman Mr. Jones


Also The Baron and his team got some paint as well, but nothing worth showing yet.

Nice looking forward to seeing the barons crew painted up. Along with some background.  :)

Like this!

Are the white Reaper minis from the Bones line (I have some of them from the Chronopia line)?

Argonor: Yes, they are Bones minis. I'm not really satisfied with the material, but they were cheap (I was in the kickstarter). And with paint on them they are ok.
 
I will paint some on the weekend (probably) and make pics about the finished pirate crew. Also I will write down the background for them.  ;)

Due to the fact that I always forget to bring home my basing materials from our club the pirates bases are still not done yet... I hope I will not forget it tomorrow.

In the meantime here are some pip pictures of the Baron's crew and some extra.

The Baron himself. I'm still undecided about painting his armour black (like his guards, see below) or regular metal. And his hair, gray to make him look older, or some normal colour, black or brown?


And the base he will stand on


Capt. Trakan and the two Personal Guard. They look much better painted, I really start to like them. While painting Trakan I was thinking about his skin colour. I may paint him blue as Capt. Sariss, so they can be be from the same place. Maybe even served under the pirate Lady, then choose a new employer.


The Combat Droids. They sort of look like they come from a bath. I like the contrast of the brighter sash and edges. They looked good in white as well, so someday I maybe paint the other two I have that way.


And the extra. Two lady for some pulp/weird ww games (if I ever find someone interested in it), and the Crimson Raiders, sky pirates.



Not very good pictures, the red looks really flat. They look much better IRL. But fear not, I put a plan in motion to have better equipment for photographing my pictures. My loyal minions are on the project  :D

Lastly some conversions for my Warmachine pirate army.


For the setting and story of the Pulp Alley game I planning I will open a new topic in the ... err... Future Wars section, that will be the best fit probably. As soon as I finish the pirate crew and make a group photo. Don't hold your breath though, I'm slow ;)

Sooo I'm back. I hope no one held his/her breath, but I told you I'm slow :D

Various things got me distracted and it was hard to get motivated but I painted things in these two years. Mostly commissions though. Sad truth but money and nagging customers seems to be the best motivators now days...  :(

Anyway here are some pics









Lots of Malifaux. Most of the Wyrd stuff is a nightmare to put together, and a pain to paint but they look good once it's done. I had the "pleasure" to paint the old and the new Dreamer team. I liked the old metal on better but I'm partial toward metal any day ;)

I got another commission today to paint some Warmachine stuff. A friend of mine wants to enter the Hungarian Masters tourney and needs a fully painted army for that. So I will be painting some converted nyss hunters, solos and what-not. Pics will follow.

I'm also working on some terrain for my Orc vs Cowboys game. This will be the forth game and the orks will be besieging an abbey/monastery defended by the monks, farmers taking refuge there, some outlaws and three mysterious strangers. More on this tomorrow.





I also need to paint up a lot of minis for this as well. The monks, some farmer types and finish my Lotr orks/goblins/uruks for the other side.
Well we will see how long I will last this time :)

Thanks. I like to paint very different things at once because I get bored easily. Maybe I painted too much 40K IG in my younger days  :D
The lady is Hannah from Wyrds Malifaux game. A really great mini once it's done but after putting together two I had enough of her for a lifetime (that's reminds me, I have to paint the second one as well... o_o).

jimbibbly: Thanks, I will try too keep going longer this time :P
