Cool! Especially like the dwarf, not so keen on the swivelgun though. (Hey, I'm being honest. Wink )


Initially, I wanted to build one myself from an Ogre Leadbelcher, but unfortunately I never managed to aquire a Leadbelcher cannon. Then I stumbled upon the swivel gun on ebay and thought I give it a try. Even though it's not a master sculpt, I quite like it.
You have a few swivel guns yourself, don't you? Could you perhaps post some pics of them? When I finish the warband in it's current state, I might give some alternative swivel gunners a try.

I'm really looking forward to see them scurvy dogs at the big meeting, and of course, kick their butts!

Ha, we will see who will get his butt kicked! I'd rather bet on your weedy Ostlanders than on my tough-as-nails Scurvy Dogs Wink

And don't worry, I don't have much gaming experience, either. Let alone tactics and such things Very Happy

Actually, I was pretty surprised how he turned out, too. Most of the guns found their way onto the model by chance. If you look at the first post in this thread, you can see how he looked in the beginning. I then began swapping arms and... well, you see what became of him Smile

And another update! Sorry for the blue-ish pics, but my sister took her camera (which I was using) hostage, so I got my mom's, but I still did not yet find all the configurations and could thus not adjust it properly...

First, we have a slayer pirate, who thought he'd rather replace his lost dwarven honour with the Pirate Code of Conduct instead of a Deah Vow (or whatever they call it). So he quit Long Drong the Wimp, dyed his beard in a more fashionable colour and joined Redbeard, Horror of the High Seas.



Next, we have Booming Bartholomew, a gunner with a blunderbuss.



And last, we have the ex-designated Cabin Boy, who decided to join the Gunners instead. Nonetheless, he's eager to find his treasure. Ladies and Gentlemen, Jan Jansen of the Sartosa Mining Guild.



And last and least, I will show you the WIP for my second Cabin Boy.

Nice I love the character.

Before I actually read the pirate list, I had invisioned a group mixed of all races joined together in the hopes of treasure, not just humans.

I like these guys a lot.

Thanks!

Obviously, I think that mixed races is what a proper Sartosan pirate warband is all about! They should have added animosity rules for them, though Wink

Well, it's not exactly a barrel - it's only the WIP shot, the most important part is still missing. This is just the teaser so you sit there anxiously awaiting what he will exactly look like Wink

I'm almost finished now, the core crew is already complete, and thus I thought I'll give you another update. I still didn't have time to adjust the camera settings, so the pics are again not great, but I will fix this after the weekend and take proper shots. Here you go:

Gunther von Zahn, Gunner


Nkunda Gabè, Boatswain from the Southlands


Jim Hopkins, Cabin Boy


Now, some reinforcements:

Samuel Eagle-Eye, Gunner


Silent Bill, Crewman


And finally, the very last WIPs, a swivel gunner and my Ogre HS




I have to very special models as second Cabin Boy and Second Mate, but they will be a surprise for the big Meeting, so I will post pictures of them after the weekend, as well as some group shots Smile

Wow! Someone's been busy with his warband lately!
I absolutely love them, Sasha! The warband is full of character, you even painted some recruits! I'd be an honour to fight against (or with) these privateers! pirat

Good job!


Now I just need to finish my warband as well.. *sigh*

OH BABY! ARRRRGH!
There that about covers it.
Well you certainly work well under pressure. The Lads look WONDERFUL, a unique Band of Rogues VERY MUCH in character with the Pirate image. They ARE all SO beautifully done it's impossible to pick out a favorite, although I do have a fondness for Ogres. WELL DONE! Karate

Thanks for all the comments!

I am very glad I finally finished the warband (it's actually my first completely finished warband incl. additional recruits for Mordheim so far), it has been a lot of work lately (painting nearly every spare hour for the last couple of days). And I even managed to get some stripey pants thrown in Wink

The Second Mate features in the second episode of The Perilous Adventures of the Violet Tendencies (*) (The Flight of Jan Jansen), by the way. He's got long, braided hair, a lot of cloaks and a huge axe, so happy guessing which model it is (or not Suspect) And don't tell them, Deaf! Wink

Thanks, Tag & Styro Smile

And Styro, as I already wrote in "PiratePics Wanted", I can perhaps do a little guide on how I did them (even though I don't have a lot of WIP pics). When I get the camera adjusted properly, I will send you some high resolution pictures if you like.

Alright, I finally got around taking pics of the last members of my scurvy crew. The white balance is still off, but one day I will sure fix it.

First, Second Mate Ismail Fara-Tag, the Blind:



Then, the second Cabin Boy, Martin the Monkey:



Then, we have my starting crew of the Amsterdam meeting:



And the crew at the end of the weekend (Ismail is now Captain):



(You can see that I performed well Wink )

Here is a shot of the whole crew (yeah, that's what it could have looked like had I won a game or two and not suffered about 8 dead fighters):



And last, there are two pics of the still WIP reinforcements:

The ogre (the ships chief gunner and dyer):



And the swivel gunner:




Now, what ye think, bilge rats? pirat

That is REALLY an INCREDIBLE PIECE OF WORK! affraid
Some of the Lads are even identifiable from your stories. Beyond being examples of some EXTREMELY FINE conversion & painting work, the amount of character & personality you managed to convey in a Group of Rogues that dispite their individualistic appearance look like a cohesive crew is ASTOUNDING. TRULY A MASTERFUL PIECE OF WORK! thumbsup
