Another Pirate joins the crew!

Sadie "Saucy Devil" Quince




As mentioned in the last post all the bases will have a planked look. The deck is started with a full coat of German Camo Black Brown VMC822 (150), then the planks are defined with VMC983 (143) Flat Earth and some basic etching applied, further etching is given to the planks using VMC874 (134) USA Tan Earth then VMC843 (133) Cork Brown in small random lines.

Being a female I wanted the skin a little fairer than the male pirates so. Firstly the skin is base coated with VMC860 (21) Medium flesh tone followed by a wash of Army painter soft tone before having VMC860 (21) Medium flesh tone reapplied to the whole face save the eye sockets, along he side of the nose and parts of the mouth. Then the brow, nose, higher portion of the cheeks and the chin are given a coat of VMC8450 (20) Sunny flesh tone. Next more definition is given applying a smaller amount of VMC955 (18) flat flesh over the same areas and then repeated with VMC815 (17) Basic skintone. except the nose which I just run down the centre and apply two dots either side. Finally just on the centre of the nose, top of the cheeks and chin I applied VMC928 (6) light Flesh.

Her hair was base coated with VMC877 (126) golden brown and then lightly dry-brushed with VMC847 (123) Dark Sand.

The bra top is simply worked from dark to light starting with VMC881 (112) Yellow Green Brown, and highlighting up with VMC857 (79) Golden Olive before applying a final highlight of VMC827 (77) Lime Green.

The trousers once again worked from dark to light. Starting with VMC812 (43) Violet Red, and highlighting up with VMC945 (42) Magenta before applying a final highlight of VMC802 (41) Sunset Red.

The jacket was worked from  dark to light using VMC946 (32) Dark Red, then Red VMC947 (29) with final highlights being Scarlet VMC817 (25). The lace was base coated with VMC915 Deep Yellow (14) the lightly washed in the recesses with Army painter soft tone and then a final highlight of VMC952 Lemon Yellow (11).

The boots and belt were worked with 4 colours. Firstly VMC846 Mahogany Brown, then VMC983 Flat Earth followed by VMC875 Beige Brown and a final highlight of VMC876 Brown Sand (132).

The hat begins with VMC950 Black (169) followed by VMC862 Black Grey (168) with a final highlight of VMC995 German Grey (167).

The finishing touches were put on the weapons and then everything has been given several coats of varnish to protect them in play.
