arrgh me hearties! - Spanish Blood & Plunder

Well it would appear that the deadline that Lee gave me kick started my painting mojo!

Given a weeks notice I cracked out the Spanish that I got from the Blood and Plunder KS a while back, all that's needed for these is some transport and I'm done!


The models are painted to a fairly basic standard however the dirty and grubby look suits them well, I went with quite restricted colours.

The bases I did try something different though, rather than the usual sand, paint it brown base colour then two levels of high light I simply got some soft wash really watered it down and put it on the sand whilst the PVA was drying then let it dry over night, then a quick dry brush of yellow ochre and that was it! 

Currently firelock games have a second kickstarter running to add the Dutch, Pirates and the native Caribbeans as well as some extra ships into the product line.
