Pirates details

Couple of conversions. Can’t have pirates without Jolly Roger.

Pirates

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: The Quartermaster.

When painting the broad cross belts I found out that highlighting the brown colour with a grey rather than white gave a great look of sun faded leather.
