Next up are the undead pirates. This force tops out at over 100 wounds, but can scale down as needed.

It is lead by the Sartosan Vampire Lord on his flying boat (coven throne).


Here is a close-up of him.


There are also lots of skeleton crewmen and a vampire boatswain.


There is a pack of ghouls, the remnant of a group of marooned mutineers who resorted to cannibalism.


And, when necessary, there are ghostly spirits to be summoned.

Your spirit hosts are really, really cool. I never thought that such a simple paint job can work such wonders. Bravo! :eusa_clap:

And now for something completely different. I discovered a youtube channel by a guy who makes very cool scenery for his D&D games. It inspired me to try a project.

I came up with the idea for making a set of dungeon tiles for below my castle.



I wanted the entire thing to be a little less than 4'x4' (the footprint of the castle) and include things like food and water storage, guard rooms, dungeons, etc.

They are made from heavy cardboard. They were then primed, covered in a coat of "make it stone", and then covered in another coat of dark grey primer.




After that, I dry-brushed them with a lighter grey to bring out the texture.



Here is the final result, populated with some Descent figures.



Another quick project from the same youtube channel made up some beds for the troops barracks.



When I get back to the states, I'll bring these with and populate more of the dungeon. I have an old model of the rack and a bid on a 28mm iron maiden to put in the torture chamber...

That's an awesome idea and execution of it! :-D

I like that you went with a barracks as well, when you finish that maybe you should make a ship interior as well. Give them rules for having to fight on a ship that rocking back and forth on the waves with all kinds of obstacles getting in the way. Could be fun. :wink:

You should probably link to the channel here, because I WANT TO SEE!

Thanks! I used to love when White Dwarf would do a bit-by-bit breakdown of the new model kits that were coming out. Sets like the empire handgunners and outriders that had so many cool bits in them. The dwarf pony cart is also a favorite.

My next project is a mermaid. I am using one of the dark eldar prisoners. I have removed the manacles, cut off the legs, and roughed in a lower body.

It might be just me, but that is one ugly ass transvestite looking mermaid! :unsure:
Or she is trying to compete as mermaids first bodybuilder.

Here is a touch-up shot on a blue background.



And here is the other one of the "dark eldar prisoner" minis.

And now for something completely different: I am working on a party of undersea models from Reaper.

Here are the wereshark, the dark maiden, and the mermaid.

Hmm? I don't get the reference...

I added a few bad guys this morning. The Sea Hag and two Kelpies.

It's from VTM: Bloodlines. At some point you meet a japanese teenage girl, who's hunting a Rokea, a were-shark. After you help her kill the thing, you can comment that it's good, that this thing did not had any tentacles. :-P

Anyway, the nasty sea critters are really nicely looking. What manufacturer makes these?

Ah, I see. These are from Reaper. The most recent three are reaper bones. The others are metal.

Reaper really increased the quality of their sculpts. I remember that they used to produce really ugly models...

The reaper bones stuff, for the most part, has been pretty fantastic. Details are good, shape is good, and really easy to convert. Sometimes they bend a bit but you can fix them real easy with a bit of hot water. (Before their painted anyway.)

That wereshark looks awesome. Look at the abs on it!
