More Foundry pirates
Now I remember why I like these sculpts; they remind me of the old N.C. Wyeth illustrations from Treasure Island. And the exaggerated sculpting really does well with the 3-color English method, so I've given them a healthy dose of basic layering and black-lining.
I still have a few more (plus a small ships gun) to paint to complete the landing party. I must have used a good primer when I first painted these because it's been difficult to strip them. I'm using Simple Green, which has proven itself in the past. It's working, it's just taking a couple days longer of soaking the figures to break down the prime and base coats.
