Thanks @morfangdakka ! As I've said, this is a very slow thread, both because I spend a lot of time working on each model and because I've got a lot of other projects going on. Despite it's slow progress, I'll see this project through!


I read somewhere that when raiding ports and villages, sometimes pirates would steal the gibbets of their executed comrades. This inspired me to make a standard bearer for my swordsmen:



It is not finished yet, but you get the idea.

Very nice! And I like where that gibbet is going!

Good to be green

My only concern there is the balance of the gibbet--it looks like it would fall forward where he isn't supporting it, with how much of the weight is leaning forward there...

Looks like some great little models there, particularly all the green stuff work, not too sure on the steampunk side of it all, the first model certainly has the idea of it, but others just seem to have a good little pirate theme going on there.

Still some good stuff here, well done.

@Mossy Toes , I understand your conern, but to be honest, the entire model is a bit bonkers. You'd need to be really frikken' strong to carry that thing around! It is angled slightly backwards though, as you can best see on the second picture.

@Battman , Thanks! I have some more steampunky models planned, but there's currently more than one with steampunk influences! However, I prefer low-key steampunk, and imagine the bulk of the pirates too poor to be able to afford the more high tech stuff.

Got a new pirate ready for painting! He can either join a unit of handgunners or spearmen!



My pirates were also featured in a three-way battle, involving a mad rush to claim a cursed hoard of treasure!
