From the painting desk #32 – Captain, my captain

May 20, 2015

This year’s 11th miniature is a pirate from Black Scorpion. He’s actually the reason for my huge surge of interest for pirates. Once I saw him at the Black Scorpion stand at Salute, I just had to buy the pack and the rest is (very current) history. Seriously, that pose has to be one of the coolest I’ve ever seen, and the miniature all in all is everything I expect from a Pirates of the Caribbean inspired sea dog. He’ll definitely be the captain of my pirate crew.

I painted his coat a bright red but made the white detailing a bit grimy – he is a pirate after all! I think he’s also the first resin miniature I’ve ever painted. The quality was mainly good, although there was a strange deformity on his right hand. I fixed it somewhat by disguising part of it as a ring. The basing represents a sandy fantasy-Caribbean beach and fits in with the previous pirate.
