Every year for Huzzah the organisers pick a theme and ask clubs and individual players to paint figures for the game. Its a good deal, they get figures for the game and after we get to keep them. This year the theme is Pirates.
is my pirate Captain Named John Silver he's clearly inspired by Long
John Silver of the famous novel Treasure Island. He may have on leg but
he's got a quick mind and gets around fine. He's also quite a snappy
dresser with his three plumed hat.
decided to make his parrot an African Gray in part because I have
always like their look better than the more typical green fellows you
normally see with pirates.
look at the Parrot their under side and face are a lighter gray and
their beaks are black. I gave John gold lace on his hat and pockets. I
also made his buttons gold as well, clearly he;'s successful pirate.
colors I was inspired by the Disney Treasure Island look but made it a
bit higher class as this guy is a captain not a cook. I don't know who
mad the figure as I didn't buy it but got it free (other than having to
lend it back to the convention organizers for a few days) making it the
best sort of figure.
