Re: Anyone getting their Corsairs painted?

I hung some pictures up in Sam's gallery, but I'm not sure they're level!  I hope others do the same because I don't think we'll see much on the Mithril website.  At least not for a while...

Re: Anyone getting their Corsairs painted?

Sadly, My corsairs will remain in port for this deployment.   I actually got my chosen five assembled and primed, but just did not have the time to paint them up.  Tomorrow, finally, is my last day of classes for this semester, and I'll hopefully have more time to paint between now and September!

Re: Anyone getting their Corsairs painted?

Sorry to hear that Presto.  Despite my firm belief to the contrary, they have posted the Corsairs contest entries on the Mithril website (Michael is a webmaster after all!).  There are some great entries so the competition is stiff! I wouldn't want to be a judge.   There's some really cool stuff there...check it out!cool

Re: Anyone getting their Corsairs painted?

I also checked out the galleries this morning, and was favorably impressed!  It was nice to see that I came up with some of the same ideas, lash marks on the backs of the slave figures, and facial tatooing on the bald guy.   (I was thinking more Maori though...) I was very impressed by how well some of the painters rendered stripes and embroidery on the cloth.  cool stuff.

Re: Anyone getting their Corsairs painted?

I'd hate to have to judge between the best of them - they all have different strengths in different ways. It would be easier to judge which are the 'worst', even where 'worst' is a relative term - I probably couldn't have done as well as any of the entrants!

Re: Anyone getting their Corsairs painted?

The difficult thing is to judge from pictures.  It is a little easier with mini in hand.

Re: Anyone getting their Corsairs painted?

With this I do agree , Mistress Wendy.
I would not like to judge ....  or,  to be honest ... I cannot ... and fotunately I don't have to.

Re: Anyone getting their Corsairs painted?

Who is/are the judge(s) going to be - do we know? I can't remember if we've been told (memory like a lumber-room etc). but I'd hope The Man himself will be one of them.
