He followed the map and found the buried treasure, but there was a grim reminder of the old pirate's insurance....
"DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES"!  What a Face

(This bloke is either going to get an C18th white wig....or maybe a red and white pirate's bandanna and a gold earring.
Still trying to decide if he's a goody or a baddie.)

pirate - tastic picture you’v done they LeStryge. I ether picture him with the red and white pirate's bandanna and a gold earring rather than the C18th white wig or just leave him as he is dressed because I type sometimes less is best in a kitbash but they just my opinions and it’s like totally up to you LeStryge at the end of the day because the most important thing is that he’s your kitbash.

It's just that I find his hair paint a little fake looking, so I thought I'd make something to cover it up. Idea
I really like his period drop-front breeches and shirt and thought a wig might go with them. Nothing Louis XV or anything extreme, just a smallish one like was worn in the British Navy, with a plait tied by a small ribbon at back.
Then again, the bandanna sounds good too, ...and so much easier. Wink

I see your meaning on wanting to cover up his painted hair and I totally agree with you on that it’s a little fake looking. I also totally agree with you on you really liking his period drop-front breeches and shirt. I’m liking your thoughts on him wearing a British Navy, with a plait tied by a small ribbon at the back and I can now also see the British Navy, with a plait tied by a small ribbon at the back wig would work with the shirt and trousers.

Hmmm, ...that means I'll be haunting the charity shops and some abandoned Barbie with white hair is in for a VERY close haircut! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Good luck on haunting down a abandoned Barbie with white hair or any kind of 1/6 scale figure with white hair in the charity shops. Oh you could try and find the doctor who clockwork droid figure on EBay or in a charity shop because they wear wigs.

Thanks for the advice but I don't think it will be too hard to find something cheap with the requisite white hair and making a simple slip on wig shouldn't be all that difficult really. Must confess that I do get a bit of a kick out of making things myself rather than just buying it.

Good guy or bad guy? He's a pirate, so that whole good-bad thing is fluid and nebulous! Depends on his mood, and on the crowd he's hanging out with, and on how much gold he has in his coin purse at any given time.

Bandana would look great, I think, but I understand the desire to attempt something a little more challenging.

Thanks for the appreciative comments fellers!
I'll post a pic of the bloke when he gets his headgear, ...whatever that might be.
Maybe both?
Many a sailor found it far more profitable to turn pirate. (Or privateer as it was politely put.)

Here he ponders where to bury his latest booty.

Arrr... an' he's found himself a right purdy little birdy, too!

The bandana looks great, especially with the long tail blowing in the wind!

Hey, what's a pirate without a parrot, eh?
I did hold off on the wooden leg and hand-hook though!
Glad you liked it Dave!
The ear rings are real gold, ...courtesy of some jewellery I found in a charity shop and demolished!

Just wait until your better half finds out you're buying gold jewellery for your action figures!

There will be Twisted Evil to pay! It's been nice knowing you, buddy!

Wise lines from D.H.Lawrence's "Lady Chatterley's Lover"
and I quote: “What the eye doesn't see and the mind doesn't know, doesn't exist.”  lol!

Or is it "Never let the right hand know what the left hand is doing"?

I kind of thought you'd appreciate him Alex!
Thanks for your comment!
Always welcome.

Well at least your pirate only had the ship's cat scratching, .....he might have had a dog doing what dogs do to poles! lol!

Now that's a thought Alex! Specially with those figures that may have lost a leg or a hand?
Then I could do a "walking the plank" scene?
You have certainly given me something to think about.
