As you can see, today brings an interruption from the usual historical stuff with some Freebooter's Fate miniatures. These were given to me for my B-day by AM a while ago and the Imperial starter box mini's are ready! In the end I like the handgunners best. They are simple but handsome figures and make for a nice paint. I accidentally got the bases of the officers wrong: they should both have the same colour decking. Oh well, let's be getting us some pirates!
The entire group:
I've painted them up pretty much from the box artwork. With the male officer I had to keep myself from giving him a red cloak, black suite and a drop of blood slipping from his lips... The female handgunner has this absurd leather harness, which would be really uncomfortable for any woman let alone one with such an erm...ample chest as this one... All in all nice figures and I am quite content with how they turned out.
