The internal debate about the planks is still not resolved. The perfectionist is worried about the bases not coming out well.. If I screw up painting a model, I drop it in the “dip” jar and do it again. If I screw up the bases, I can’t strip them. I would have to remake 48 plank bases (all custom cut)…
I have a little bit of sanding to smooth the wood and to see it I can remove some of the white primer around the feet and some paint drips.
I can do them all one color, uniting all the Pirates with one base. If I do that I can use facing makes to distinguish the models.
I think the Oak and Walnut are neck and neck. I can’t picture the whole army with reddish bases….
The other option is to divide the models into units/groups.
Fiona, Battlegroup, Doc – Walnut – dark for Tamarite
- 10 sea dogs + Mr Walls – Walnut
- 6 sea dogs – maple
- 6 sea dogs – oak
- 3 sea dog riflemen – one of each?
- 10 press gang – walnut
- 6 press gang – oak
Kell, Ragman, Croe’s Cutthroats are on dirt base because they are not pirates 😉
I need some sleep, with snow on Tuesday, I need to really get this done tomorrow.
Just do it…
