A motley crew

Here you go!  The complete crew for Clash for a Cure.

At last, bases and miniatures all together, setting the scene.

I have a variety of pirate minis here... some Reaper, and even some 7th Seas.  That means I will have to make some more bases like these and start creating more pirate crews!

I also had a lot of fun with all the varieties of browns.  Some had more green, more yellow, more red, and so on.

Varying the intensity of the browns is also part of the contrast hat trick.

Some of the browns were made more muted by having an even balance of green and red.  The two contrasting colors actually negate each other when mixed in equal amounts.

Otherwise, having more of the red, green or yellow show through in the browns will make it 'brighter'

I hope you enjoyed this set!!


  1. Damn fine on pretty much every level!

  2. They look just like pirates should look!
    You did an amazing job on them avoiding some of the genre's cliches, like bright flashy clothing, tattoos and such. Well done!

    1. Thanks! I had already painted pirates in that way, so I thought this might be fun... and it really was! :-)
