Default Pirates of the High Seas ! YARRR !

Im a huge fan of pirates .. ok im obssessed, they are just too cool. So as part of a little event on Chest of Colors forum, i joined in the Tale of ? Gamers and started up a little project to do whilst i finish other armies.

When maxmini released the ork pirate heads i instantly knew i wanted some ork pirates, but what for? I had been thinking about getting a proper necromunda gang painted up and useable with my friends when i game once a year, so i figured i'd have some pirate orks as goliaths which fit quite nicely.

So i wanted a fair sized gang but with decent opportunities to do some quality painting.



So i combined some Ork Nobz and the maxmini heads, i got a couple of the minis i really liked aswell or ones that i thought would fit well with the crew.

I've started on the first guy and im very happy with the progress atm. :D

Great theme, awesome models and exceptional painting. Big fan of piratey goodness

Have you thought about picking up an airfix galleon for a display base?

Thanks for the rep and nice comment Varakir, i have been contemplating doing a display base like that and possibly use it at gamesday, but will see when i finish these guys first but im not sure airfix stuff is big enough to fit these models. Might be more orkey if i scratchbuild something, i have plenty of wooden ice cream sticks :D

So here is my first completed ork :D they are very fun to paint. Got a couple of other things to paint and then onto the next guy. I should find a suitable name for him too, since this is a pirate crew.

For some reason i missed the chain on his back, and so i painted it up last night. Here are some pics of the model with painted chain lol , i tried to brighten up the squig a little but my blood red is unusable so i ended up using the base colour red with bleach bone highlights and then glazing over with red again to bring it back in.



And here is the status picture for the whole gang :D
