Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash: Pick Two

Fruits of my labor

These pictures look awful. I'm much more pleased with the way they look sitting on the desk - but the pictures are closeups, so all the flaws are obvious.

But here they are, what I've been painting. They're all 54mm.

First, Little Metal Captain Aubrey:

Note the rum barrel in the background. I added that myself. Sailors need rum.

Next, Little Metal Lawrence of Arabia

I'm pretty pleased with the white of his robes, which is really hard to do. White is very hard to paint. The face is apalling, however.

And last, Little Metal Captain Kidd

I'ts not clear in this picture, but his face turned out the best of the lot - the secret was very little paint, and lots of thin washes.
He's got a pistol in each hand, plus two on his bandolier, and a cutlass. On the other hand, he doesnt' have a cartridge belt - so he's only got four shots. Better make 'em count, you know?
