Pirate Campaigns (1)

One of the projects I want to make major headway on this year is my pirates.  When I got home from my last deployment, I had ordered most of the Foundry range of pirates, stuck em all on bases and promptly packed them away in a box.  

Time to rectify that, as I have several suitable rulesets such as - "Blood & Plunder", "Flashing Blades", "Donnybrook" etc.

Those, combined with some naval rulesets for the naval side of things could make for some very interesting little campaigns, so to that end, I've made a start on painting the figures.  As per usual, I've painted 4 and gotten bored, so more will come as we go through the year.

Old Pirate and either a pirate captain OR a Royal Navy Officer

Pirates - the one on the left I went for a native skin tone kind of in tune with Mayan descendants.  Dunno if it works, but hopefully. 
Foundry figures are awesome to paint. You can really tell that their sculpters keep ease of painting in mind.  Will probably be ordering more from them at some point.

Yeah...it's a lot.  I may have a problem.  The Lead/Plastic Mountain in the closet maaaaaaay prove it...

But no matter, we're gonna make a lot of progress this year, starting with this gal - 

Jyn Odan from Imperial Assault.  I am really hoping to get all the minis painted for this game this year, I'm just soooo far behind on expansions.  The detail on Jyn was a little shallow, but I think she turned out ok.  IA figures are rather hit and miss, some are bloody fantastic, others are a bit meh. 


Jyn Odan - Smuggler

Anyways, we're off to the races.  Here's to a great year for all of you hobbyists out there!
