With the end of summer about, I've been pulled away from my painting in the recent days with all sorts of distractions. However in my last few days off I managed to get a new one done!
I've always been a fan of the Freebooter and have always wanted to just work on one. So I did! Picked this guy up, sat down and built him in a couple hours, then went to town with the paint.
With the introduction of the new Merc Minion Jack Marshal, Rulak Moorclaw, I immediately knew I wanted some jacks for my Gatormen, this guy and a Buccaneer especially. I wanted to make him look like he belonged with them, but still apart, so I kept the base cohesive with their and gave him a little swampy dock. The planks were made out of craft sticks and the piling from a wooden dowel.
I've always loved the Freebooter's pose so I ran with it and had him smashing through the piling, splinters shooting everywhere. They were simply glued together and hit with some zip kicker for a quick hold (To which im honestly surprised they held up so well). Added a bit of jewelry chain to just give the base a little more oomph so to speak, its the little things that count.
One of my favorite mini's to date, just gotta get him on the table now!
