    Well as the comp has been extended and I’m an impatient sort – not at all Entish :rolleyes: I thought you might to have a sneak peak of the Corsairs.

    Hope you enjoy (and I’ve still got a bloody big ship to crew!!!) :|

    You know ddaines, I am truly impressed with your work! It must take a lot of time to come up with the dioramas you make. Great job once again! Keep up the great work!:D

    superb … so it leaves me considering painting corsairs providing them with a diorama though I really cannot haste it … superb, I said …Master Ddaines .. but what do you mean with that being “not at all Entish” ? … anyway, keep on, please … (I simply forgot about all the adjectives I should have used to comment on that pic.) …. rhuooommm … marvellous …… hom … could be another word for superb ….

    Thank you for the kind comments, it makes the effort all worthwhile :cool:,

    What I meant by not being very Entish is that I thought with the original deadline all the entries would have appeared on the main Mithril site, but as the painting comp has been extended for a month, well I couldn’t wait that long to share the pictures so I just had to post one.

    Hopefully it will inspire others to get the paint and brushes out as these little chaps really are nice.

    I also really do like all those details … except the fact that someone got lost of his cudgel ;)
    Please let me ask where’s that boat from?

    Well Master Ent the cudgel had to go as that particular Corsair is pulling the boat in and tying it to the bollard (I’ll post some more images from different angles), and although it doesn’t show up too well the rope goes around his back to that hand.

    The boat is in fact a small scale Viking ship made by Drakkar Oseberg (I might have chucked the box but that name is on the plastic sprue) which has been chopped and changed.

    Originally I brought them (unseen) for The Fellowhip’s Elven boats but they were a little too big, fate perhaps.

    I think that shows it a bit clearer.

    Well here is my ‘action shot’ for the contest. I didn’t bother to do much here. A friend took the photo with a camera which cost more than most cars I’ve owned!

    Like all your other painted minis I saw before, I love the way you give them colour!

    Absolutely great work. David. Respect!
    I also like the way you’re considering details. E.g. that Gondorian spearman is holding exactly the right shield, being from South Gondor.
    Thank you.

    Great stuff there Ken – well that’s two of us, lol. I think the background scene on the main pic really sets the scene and does it for me!

    Anyone else going to send in a picture?

    Hello!
    Here are the pictures from my Cosairs.
    I like the pictures from kenakko and ddaines more but making a diorama is not my world.
    David and Ken, also Respect from my side, great work!

    All very nice indeed – way superior to my ‘bulk-production’ wargame-army painting skills. Which is why I haven’t enetered the competition – I know my place in life (lowly barkeep etc), and have no delusions of artistic competence! Great work, guys. The subtle differences in style are fascinating.

    Ahh Master Zoetrop is back!
    By the way it is a painting competision not a diorama building competision.
    I guess it will be hard for the judges to find the Master Painter.

    Oh Wow! Ken that is really awesome! Great work! You too Zoetrop! Great job! Is their anyone else that painted any of the Corsairs? :/

    Oh, sorry, Ken, I mixed up your name with David’s in my last entry … sorry. But everything I can see here is first class, of course including Zoetrop’s versions.
    I will not take part for two reasons: my skills cannot match with you three, and well, on the other hand there’s not enough time.
    But what about Wendy? She’s a brilliant painter.
