When I saw this round, I knew there were two miniatures that I had to enter for it. Why two? Well, I immediately thought of two miniatures I bought about 7 years ago when my group was playing pirate games. One was rescued from an "everything £1" bucket at a show and appears to be a Genie by Grenadier in 1985 and I thought he'd make a smashing water elemental. The other is a fun little mermaid from Black Cat Bases.
I've based them in the water, with the water roiling frantically underneath the elemental. I figure the jewellery he has is from sunken ships..... Perhaps ones he had a hand in sinking.
Thank you to the Challenge for nudging me to get these two done!
