A Short Plank for a Scurvy Crew - More Squat Pirates

Another small group of Captain Grugari's Dreadstorm Privateers have made it off the WIP to bring the piratical crew up to a respectable six in number!



These dastardly space pirates are as terrifying  in reputation as their fashion choices!
The trio comprise another pair of actual squat pirates, with a squat adventurer who is also rocking the pirate look, complete with eye-patch and bandana.


Quartermaster Dvarn is probably the most squatty squat ever. He has an axe-rifle, biker helmet, pierced nose AND a full body beard tucked into his ammo belt! His left arm is part of the original sculpt - I just added the knife hand and sculpted the right arm.

Gunner Gunnerson has a fabulous set of shades to go with his nonchalant cigar. And a peg leg. And a braid down the length of his back. He also probably waxes his moustaches. The arms and heavy bolters are from Uscarl Miniatures space dwarves.

Finally it's Orlaf, a human crewman. Orlaf is a squat adventurer with the addition of a plastic right arm and the left arm liberated from a squat biker.

The entire crew is looking much more menacing now when fully assembled!

    1. Thanks very much! Really enjoyed painting these. The helmet is super simple really -using that faithful old bit of sponge!

  4. Great work. I like all the details on these guys: the chains, the helmet and the tattoos. They're coming together into a nice warband. And good sculpting too!

  6. Three more fantastic additions to the crew! I wanted to say the quartermaster is my favorite, but there's something about Orlaf... between that pose and his do-rag he takes the win. Keep them coming!

    1. Thanks Suber! I suspect they would prefer to be viewed as threatening rather than charming though!!
