Mr Smee: That's not countin' the holidays, either.
|Best. Photoshop. Ever.|
To try and emulate the bright cartoon look of the film characters, I undercoated these guys in white. I then promptly received a reminder about why I switched to a black undercoat many years ago. As whenever I thought I had blocked in a section, I would turn the miniature and discover a bright spot of white tucked away somewhere! Black undercoat is much more forgiving...
The miniatures are 28 mm figures from North Star's range of miniatures for 'On the Seven Seas' by Osprey. The bases are from a local Australian company, Back 2 Base-ix. The miniatures, (cryptically named Captain Hood and Mr Three on the box) obviously have a slightly darker, more competent look about them than in the film.
These guys were a blast to paint up, and while I don't play anything that needs pirates, they may get to make a guest appearance when my club mates start breaking out their Blood and Plunder Kickstarters. But only if Captain Hook and Mr Smee are both absolutely sure there are no crocodiles ticking away nearby...
