Building the Crew

My Ghost Archipelago crew is slowly taking shape. This is another figure from the female crew pack sculpted by Mr. Bobby Jackson. Having got a brush on a few of these figures, I can honestly say this is one of my favourite packs in the range. Simple but beautiful sculpts and just a delight to paint.

I thought the figure would look better with a shield, but I wanted something a little low-tech looking, something light that would fit well in the setting, so I used a plastic shield from the Perry's Sudanese kit. I think it fits right in.

Painting was pretty straight forward. The only oddity, I actually painted the hammer head grey with a grey highlight - as close as I've ever come to painting anything with the non-metallic metal technique.


  1. nice paint-job - and agree about the female crew figures. excellent sculpts.
