A front view... The sails are made with QuickFuse (as explained by Capt'n Henry). It gives a very nice result, but is axpensive as hell (6 EUR/paper) and you need 6 of them (front/back)...

These are supposed to be sailors... They also have a sword and a gun to defend themselves against pirates like Deadeye rick and his Punisher  :twisted:

Some other pictures  :P The guy with the eyepatch is the young bad dog that wants to make his career in the navy and want to become Admiral one day. You know these kind of guys from the movies. They are always in the neighbourhood of a beautiful woman, but she already lost her hart to the true hero  8)

Making of 'Departure to the Caribean'...

As you can the see, the crew was different at that time but since I saw some nice armies on this board I wanted to have my own 'custom' army   :-*

These are some pictures without the nice background. B.T.W. the background picture was taken during my trip to Crete. It's somewhere in the neighbourhood of Panormos  :arrow:

And that would be Deadeye Dick, I assume? :D

Very nice pictures, and the ship is beautiful. I am glad you were able to find the Quickfuse for the sails. It IS expensive, but I think it gives great results.

Very nice !!! Actually I'm also looking for a nice location to make som shots in nature with real water. The problem is that I'm afraid that the water is not that good for my painting  :(

Therefore the Punisher is excellent because the minimum of painting  :D
