As per my “monthly goals” I want to paint at least one miniature a month for my pirate project called “Saint Kristos”. I don’t blame you if you don’t even remember my pirate island project haha.
I failed in this goal for January so I will try and do two for Feb, the first of which is what I present to you today.
Captain Julian (my youngest daughter chose this name)
The old, senile, but still quite suave, Captain is without a ship and has been for nearly two decades now. His last great raid, which was also his most notable, ended badly. Not only did Julian lose his ship but he also lost his entire crew and his leg. However the worse thing Old Captain Julian lost was his sanity.
Now he spends his days wondering the island of Saint Kristos, singing old shanty songs and taking big swigs of his homemade Rum he calls his “Med’cine”.
Despite his age and mental health he’s still a wily old son of a bitch so be careful not to upset him. He is absolutely fearless but stupid as well and will shoot a man dead for looking at him without kindness.
To be perfectly honest I’m not that happy with the paint job. I know it sounds like a cop out but I think it has to do with the sculpt. The details are not as clear and defined as other models I’ve painted. He’s passable but yeah not my finest work.
My Fembruary submission for 2020 is juuuuuust about ready. I finished off the last model this evening and now just want to add a backdrop for the photo session. Hopefully I’ll get that all sorted tomorrow night, which will mean I’ll post tomorrow night too.
I’m quite excited about my submission this year, although I probably say that every year haha.
