Mr. Walls: Complete & Privateer Army Progress

A saltier sea dog you won’t meet anywhere else…

Mr. Walls

I sculpted bases for the Commodore and its crew last night. I’ll clean off the miniatures and attach them today (hopefully). I got a text message from Ugo yesterday to say that he found twelve pirate miniatures (including a Goblin pirate!) during a Spring clean. He’s posting them to me, so I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in the box.

So, here’s the 35pt painting checklist I set for myself back in January –

  • Captain Phinneus Shae
  • Buccaneer
  • Dirty Meg *
  • Mariner *
  • Lady Aiyana & Master Holt
  • Press Gangers (Leader and 5 Grunts)
  • Sea Dog Crew (Leader and 9 Grunts)
  • 2 Sea Dog Crew Riflemen
  • Mr. Walls Sea Dog Crew Quartermaster
  • Bosun Grogspar
  • Doc Killingsworth
  • First Mate Hawk
  • Lord Rockbottom

That’s just leaves Dirty Meg and some Press Gangers to do from the original list. The Commodore has now also made it to the painting list. I think it’s time to start thinking about my 50pt army. I’d love another heavy ‘jack and I think more Sea Dogs would be great.

    Love it Owen – I really like the privateer models and your colour scheme is very well chosen, plus the customised bases are very cool.

    I’m looking forward to getting back into painting Warmachine after BattleCry, and replacing the rubbish Centurion with a nice Ironclad or Cyclone.

      Thanks Lenny. They’re coming along.

      I’d rather you went with the Ironclad. You have enough shooting in your army! That said, if you magnetize the plastic kit you’ll have three different ‘jacks to choose from.

    But I’m lazy, plus I already have an Ironclad anyway, so I’ll probably just paint that.

    Even so, the Cyclone may look like a gun jack, but it also has the very useful open fists as well.

    Agreed. The Cyclone is an has excellent options. Having the full range of power attacks available to him is a great tool.
