Nice!! It's great to see some more pyratical stuff on here! The navies look good. I know they're WIP, but they do look pretty pale to me. The cloths look good. thumbsup

Where is the flag from?

The "Honorable" East India Co. perchance? I got started in War Gaming with 18th Century stuff...as such it will ALWAYS have a special spot in my wizzened old heart. The Lads look FINE. What sort of bases do you have in mind?

@Cianty:

Hmmm maybe you are right about the paleness. I used Elf skin instead of Bronzed skin. The weathering and sun should have given an more tan look.
I found the banner on Google, just wrote East Indian Trading Company on the picture search.

@Deafnala:

You are right Deaf, it is the "honourable" East Indian Trading Company. I liked them as the misunderstood bad guys in Pirates of Caribbean movies (though it should have been West Indian Trading Company), that is why I chose them.
As for the bases, I like the bases that Cianty has, the beach. I like the idea of them landing at the beach and storming an pirate hideout or an foreign fort.
To make them a bit different from Cianty's bases I want to add some starfish, clams, crabs etc. made from GS on the bases.

What do you think?

I like the beach idea with little critters maybe a bit of drift wood...VERY MUCH in character. I REALLY going to enjoy following your progress on this thingy.

The Honorable East India Co., aka John Co., was perhaps one of the most powerful entities of the late 17th, 18th, & 19th centuries with their own army to back them up. They also hit the heights of reprehensibility in the late 1830s by going to war with China to force them to open their markets to the Company's importation of opium...reminds me of GW's business practices.

Ah, East Indian Trading Company! I should have known!

As for the bases: Glad you like them. It was a tough decision. Actually they are pretty boring. Cool characterful bases would have required much more detail such as grass and little tidbits. I went with a compromise between something that works for games on land as well as onboard a ship. Tom would have surely liked something different. But I didn't want to have vegetation on the bases as that would look silly when placed on a ship and so would a wooden planking on the beach. Practicability for game play had a higher priority here than artistry.

lol! So true, so true!!!


@Cianty: The first time I saw the bases I did not know what to think of them. Now I love them! But as you said they maybe could need some spicying up for the artistic pleasure, not gameplay Razz

Thanks! I have decided that the skin on the marines and officers will stay the pasty pale colour, while the able seamen will get the weathered and tanned skin colour.

Been a while since I have been painting and scheming about world domination due to work and studies Sad .

But at last had some spare time yesterday where i managed to finish some able seamen and an Midshipman (well kind of finished, just need to do the bases).




Let me get some feedback on them.

Here is another picture of the marines, just a better one.



and a little Wanton Wench cheers

Yes, it is true that the ensign that I use is from Pirates from the Caribbean.
That is actually why I use it...

We are also using in our games mythological creatures in our games, as mermaids and kraken.

So it fits the universe Razz

VERY NICE! The little Guy on the right must be an Ensign. Each new batch looks better than the ones before...not that there was anything wrong with the earlier minis. Keep up the GOOD WORK...with Torin's able assistance these are going to be UBERCOOL.
