I'm actually quite surprised. There was much less to do on these than I'd thought and I managed to finish painting them last night and even got the Klear/ink coat done. This morning I sprayed them with matt varnish and flocked them.
This afternoon I have primed the first 144 pirates. I've also done the base colour for the blue camo of the Spetsnaz figures. Unfortunately it seems to have dried a slightly darker shade than I'd planned, so I may have to go over them again.
But that's enough blather about them - you want pics of the artillery.
The figures are by Grumpy, available in the UK from East Riding Miniatures or from Eureka in Australia.
The Grumpy figures are certainly characterful, but a little, errmmm, chubby compared to the Koreans from Old Glory 15s. They were very nice to paint though.

- A mythical beast - a female wargamer! I got back into wargaming in the summer of 2011 after a very, very long break and haven't looked back since. I must admit that I seem to be more of a painter/collector than a gamer, but do hope to correct that at some point in the near future. My gaming interests span the ages, from the "Biblical" era all the way through to the far future. I enjoy games of all sizes, from a handful of figures up to major battles (see my megalomaniacally sized Choson Korean and Russian Seven Years War armies).
