Thought I would start up a pirate warband as I really liked the figures. Not to mention I can build a dock section of terrain and a pirate ship! More on that later ..but for now here they are all based and primed ..I will add some WIP shots in a bit



These guys are all from Privateer Press (They have some great minis) You can see larger pictures and details of the singles http://www.pbase.com/therat/warbands <---here

An excellent start. Do you play Warmachine, by any chance?

I like the Warmachine models except for their guns. I liked the plastic Free Company/Mordheim pistols better.
Nice work on the bases to.

The PP pirates are so cool! I wanted to buy some, too, but then I decided to make my own.

I hope we can see them painted, soon Smile

No I don't, but I really like the figures and art work. I have been thinking of checking it out though.

I got the flesh done on all the guys and I am starting in on the clothes. (I actually ended up playing a few games with them already and managed to buy a few more crew so I will be adding in some more guys) I will try to post a WIP of what I got so far.

Ah, dang. I've been seriously considering starting it up, because TONS of people play it around here. It's kind of crazy actually...last summer I couldn't find a WHFB game because everyone was playing Warmachine! I've been reading about it and it looks pretty fun.

Looking forward to the WIP pictures, keep on painting! Smile

lol! AND I thought we were JUST separated by a common language.

I can't, of course speak for the whole USA, but locally War Machine/Hordes is THE mini game. 7th Edition along with some of the "new & improved" army books killed WHFB deader than Marley's Ghost. 40K is still THE SciFi favorite, & SSG are all underground, cultist pursuits. Suspect

Sorry for the off topic. Embarassed

Hey guys, I just wanted to post a quick WIP shot update. This week has been kind of busy with not much time to paint. I got all the skin done on my guys and I am trying to add in some color now. I hope to have a few guys done by the end of the week.

Let me know what you think. Thanks!

Nice job! The skin is very well done. I also like the subtle stripes on the pants. Still dislike the way they do pistols but what can you do?

GOOD START! Striped pants ARE most definitely Pirate Chic. Nice choice of colors. The Lad looks to have a LOT of potential.
Keep up the GOOD WORK! thumbsup

Sorry for the long lapse in no update, but I have been distracted and inspired by the thought of making my own Pirate Ship for my warband...

Sneak peak.. The sticks are to for visual place holders of masts ...those will not be the actual masts.





And here is an update WIP added some highlights and cleaned up some of the detail ..almost finished pic of one of my Crew ...



I will try to post some more updates this weekend.

Wow, great ship! It's huge! Can't wait to see how this turns out.

This reminds me of poor Violet Tendencies, who is still waiting to get her main deck planking Sad

i'm really liking your warband so far.

don't forget that Freebooter do some pretty awesome Piratey models too:

Long John Silver-alike
not quite so juvenile female Pirate captain

and if you can stomach the idea:

Goblin pirate Moby Dugg
Goblin pirate crew

another range of fantastic Pirate models are made by Freebooter, who produce some of the best historical miniatures around. Rackham do a quite cool range of pirate minis (mostly Goblin), but their website's currently off line for repairs.

Yeah, those Freebooter miniatures are awesome! I have some lying around as well, but did not get around painting them yet.
