Tangled Web

Black Scorpion Miniatures is a line that I ran across by accident, and I am very glad that I did!

They have lots of fantastic sculpts, from western theme (how I found them in the first place), pirate and even Blood Bowl teams.  The pirate figures are very interesting, since they have several factions.  The dwarf and goblin pirates have lots of character, as well as the undead pirates.

The female characters are also very fun, and this witch with her kitty familiar were quite nice.

You can tell that these were all sculpted by hand with traditional green stuff, which is also a rarity these days for companies making new releases!  Here's the website:

I thought that I would have some fun and make the cloak transparent.  This way I could add the spider web touches.  It posed a challenge with the skin colors, as the transparent black meant that the skin colors would be tinted greenish or blueish gray.  I had to ad plenty of pinks and purples to balance that out.
