Thank you. The paint scheme is not of my own composition, I went with a online tutorial I thought looked good. I am however considering brightening the green of the doors an making another light pass with a white highlight.

I got hold of some rejected miniatures a while ago, among them where these GW MESBG corsairs of Umbar. I have always found Umbar a very intriguing place of TA Midlde Earth so I wanted to explore this by painting the miniatures. I find the GW corsairs verging a bit to much on the Caribbean 17th century pirates, I firmly believe they should be more akin to those of the barbary coast which plagued the trades of the Mediterranean. With that in thought I did this:





Below is a Umbar "mood board", a very useful tool which a fill with a color pallet, simples sketches, patterns and designs. As you can see I did a tattoo sketch of a octopus with it's tentacles curling around the admirals face and head.

Glad to see this is still very much an ongoing project of yours :)

I love the interpretation of the corsairs- we’d better get to see the tattooed admiral soon!

Hammers what a splendiferous threat. The octohead looks quite menacing. Nicely done.
