It is the day after the official Warmachine torunament at AGS Con 05 with a slightly Cryx-y feel to it (4 Cryx armies vs 1 Cygnar and 1 Khador) and a somewhat recognisable list of players (4 from my local club PEWC).

As I play Warmahcine the first undead pirates I have are ofcourse from Warmachine. Couple of conversions. Can’t have pirates without Jolly Roger. I wanted my pirates to look a bit mouldy, so I kept to brown and green colours. However I also wante them to tie together as a unit so I paint skarfs red wherever possible. Skin was standard Mechanithrall skin which is bone and black. The Quartermaster The Quartermaster turned out nicer than I planned. While I just wanted to get the pirates painted, I did take a bit more time in painting the centre piece of the unit:…

While buying up pirate minis I’ve come across several smaller pirates figures such as pirate goblins, monkeys etc. As you can read on my pirate notes I want to make use of these minis as enhancements to characters such as a gun minion that gives better RAT etc. Minion in action

I am not sure who the manufacturer is of this pirate woman miniature. I picked her up at Salute 2007. But I do think she rivals my favorite female miniature. And I am quite please with how I painted her. Esspecially her face turned out quite well. I have named her Elaine Marley from the old computer game Monkey Island, which today still is one of the funniest games ever made.    Marley and her minion

Jonny IS breaking my own rules about living pirates having bright colours. There are two reasons for that 1) I wanted him to look more like his movie equivalent and 2) I started painting him before I laid down that ground rule. To give him even more ties to the movies, I made a small stone crab from the top of a plasitc bone… that turned out to be a lot harder than I thought but I am very please with the result.    Stone Crab in Zuper Zoon

I have bought a lot of pirate miniatures at the last two Salute shows so No Quarter is the natual driver for combining these figures in to practical use. While I want a live pirate army, I got almost as many undead pirates so I want to make use of them as well. I have not create the army list yet, but here are some random thoughts and notes: Guns: Most pirate miniatures have guns. This will make the minis expensive in points and I don’t want a a shooty army anyway. So I want to give all pirates a base skill that gives them…

The Fantasy game No Quarter and it’s newly arrived Sci-Fi brother No Limits are completly free generic wargames systems which can be downloaded from the offical sites (No Quarter website and No Limits website). But be careful not to make the mistake of thinking these are lower quality games just because they are free. In fact most games cannot claim to reach the quality level of these two games both the brainchild of Mocaiv fromwargamesunlimited.com. So what does “Free” mean and what does it take to make a No Quarter/ No Limis force? Well “Free” mean that the rules are free, it also means you have…
