So since my last update I was able to jump right in and get some more figures not only painted but "COMPLETED"!!!! Color me surprised.
Yes I have been a busy Murphy!
As October is rolling around to it's inevitable conclusion, I did a check of my painted figures status:
For the month of October:
Painted: 20 (15 18th Century/Pirates, 5 Fury of Dracula game piece figures)
This brings my total yearly count to:
I don't see myself finishing up any more figures for this month.
And while my numbers look good, Bob Murch (that evil man), of Pulp Figures is putting out a Colonial Kickstarter later on next week. And well...there goes my figure count, (As well as my money)....
Fops and Cutthroats! (My continuing journey into the 18th Century and Pirates)
(CLICK ON THE PICS FOR LARGER VERSIONS).
First off we have "D'nembo the Pirate"...
Pirate, (Either Foundry or Dixon, I can't remember which)...
Mounted on a 1/4" base. Flocked with a mixture of GF9, GW, and Woodland Scenic groundwork.
Painted with a mixture of Reaper, GW, Vallejo, and Craft Paints.
Shaded with GW shades, and Dr. Martin Inks.
|(Not too shabby I believe...)|
And of course, what's a good pirate yarn without well..."pirate ships"?
|(A quick view of the boats, guns, and figures...)|
|( A closer "close up" of the toy pirate ship, (with the HL boat in the background), showing the size/scale relation of it to 28mm figures.)|
Location, location, location, (and prime real estate)...
|(For most of my setup I see approx. 2' of water, and 6' of coastal and land terrain. Enough room for land and water maneuvers. I could also adjust it to 5 x 3...or even add tables if I needed "more water/land"). But for right now, this will do.)|
|(Works in progress...)|
|(A piece of cardstock folded on the roof point/angles, and then the roof pieces joined to it. Hmmm..it seems to work!)|
|(Not a bad looking little hovel. I could probably get a couple of million for this on the current California real estate market...)|
|(I'm going to do basic dirt flocking here, as I am making the crops and furrow removable and interchangeable so that this can be transported easier and safer without damaging the crops.)|
|(Pretty, pretty, pretty...)|
|(Corn! It's the food that you eat first, and then see later!)|
Rack 'em up!
Stumbling onto something...
