Building A Stairway To Heaven

Posted on December 27th, 2017 under , , , , , . Posted by

Well, maybe not quite heaven, just the 8cm up to the cobbled harbour level.

I must admit, I did rather enjoy The Curse of the Black Pearl – Captain Jack running around the Caribbean drunk and sunburned was an entertaining film that refreshed the way we looked at pirates.

The slowest pirates in the world

Posted on November 17th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

This has got to be one of the longest paint-jobs I’ve ever done.  A measly eighteen French flibustiers and militia from the Blood and Plunder range by Firelock Games have taken me months and months to paint. There’s nothing wrong with the … Continue reading
