Our GW Store is having a painting competition - as are all the others - and this is the first of my two entries. The full title is, of course, "Barak-Eik expects that every dwarf shall do his duty."
To be honest the main value of it was in helping me lock down the colour scheme for my Kharadron Overlords.
The deck was made from coffee stirrers:
The dwarf was built more or less from stock, no conversions.
The zombie pirate, on the other hand, required some fairly serious work. He started as the bog standard zombie from the sprues that are nearly 15 years old.
The coat started as some tails from a Skitarii, with the upper section, torn sleeves and lapels sculpted from greenstuff:
And the hat was actually made from a disk of greenstuff in pretty much the exact way a real bicorn hat is made.
Painting wise the KO was painted in a colonial british, East India Company scheme befitting their background as merchant venturers.
The Barak Eik symbol was based on the EIC symbol....
...and then repeated on the deck of the ship
The whole thing was finally stuck to the base using a bit of sprue to get the tilt right.
Overall, another little project that came out exactly how I wanted it.
