Well, that would have been my dinner if I'd been stupid enough to venture out to the shops for the ingredients.
WIP Lady Christina Recovery & Repair Ship
While the yellow ochre base coat on bases has been drying, I've been working on this ship. It's almost done now - just a little bit of tidying up, some ID markings and possibly a wash over the yellow to provide some depth. UK followers may have twigged what has inspired my colour scheme. I'm tempted to get a second and paint it in the colours of their main rival.
Aaarrrrr! I've spent a couple of hours this evening sorting and sticking figures onto their bases. They've come out as 44 bases of "other buccaneers" (Warriors, Average, Unarmoured, Musket*/Impact Foot/Sword) and 36 bases of "disciplined buccaneers" (Medium Foot, Average, Unarmoured, Musket/-/Sword). I've also done 2 unit command bases with 4 figures to combine with 10 of the "disciplined buccaneer" bases to upgrade them to "veteran buccaneers" (Medium Foot, Superior, Unarmoured, Musket/-/Sword).
Disciplined & Veteran Buccaneers
Tomorrow I'll be adding sand/gravel to the bases, then on Sunday I'll do the drybrushing, matt varnish and flocking.
Once they're submitted, I guess it is time to start working on the command stands and artillery, although I might take a short break to finish painting my entry fee figure.
