You may have noticed I haven’t posted in a few weeks, which is a long time for me.
I won’t go into why, let’s just say it’s just life.
I have been liking, commenting, reading and looking at all your lovely posts though.
One such blog that I have spent long periods of time mulling over is this one here…
Simply amazing stuff and Mikko’s posts and work on Pirates has inspired me a great deal. I have added a pirate island to my long list of projects/ideas/dreams. Not only are Pirates just visually iconic and cool but their history is an incredible read. We are all familiar with the Hollywood types but the real ones were so much more imposing! Have a read about Sir Francis Drake.
So my loose idea, at this stage, is to have a large island surrounded by water. Not sure if it’ll just be painted or what yet. Any ideas? The island will be segmented into four provinces. Each of which will have its own Governor and bands of pirates, militia or marines or a mix of all three. Plus town folk and unsavoury characters. Needless to say that all four provinces are at war with each other. Sometimes there are treaties that are often broken etc. I’ve been looking for ships and found three Mega Blok ships on eBay for next to nothing. These will be my first additions to the project. I plan on converting them and getting rid of all those meg blok (Lego-like) knobs. It’ll be time consuming but fun too.
In other news, I have started working on some terrain pieces for the Chapel Project – see here –
I have also transformed the living room into a half hobby room half creative arts room. Our old spare room, which is quite large is now our sitting room where we watch our movies etc.
when i I have finished the terrain pieces I will post them up. I haven’t done any further work on any minis but I am looking forward to getting back into it.
