After a few breaks from GW over the years, I decided around 2010 to make the final push to collect the entire range and managed to score the ones I was missing on eBay. Every year I tell myself I'm going to paint them, and then the year rolls over... However, this year, my resolution is to paint them all by the end of the year!
First up were a few of the Pirate types from the advert: the Pirate Captain, Old Pirate, and Space Pirate. I also decided to tackle the Space Pirate from 40K Talisman set, 'Loritta' (aka Cybergirl) from the Space Pirates range, and three other ne-er-do-wells from yet another range of pirates and adventurers. My color inspiration was some spice pirate concept art by Moebius for the legendary Jodorosky Dune movie that never happened.
These figures are crude by today's standards but I have to say they are straight up FUN to paint.
