Above is my round 9 entry "Crew of the Atramentous" which your Privateer Press fans should be familiar with. This guys squeaked out a victory over some nicely painted Dwarves. My round 10 entry "Capture of the Griffon" is somewhat old hat around here...you've seen these models alot with my Legends of the High Seas stuff. I did spend some time getting a good photo to meet all the bonus criteria. Except "newly painted" which I could honestly try to claim. I was very confident going into the last round unless I got paired up with one of the top 10 or so, or I thought..My entry is currently losing by a close margin, (but close enough to beat me in this thing) to a very ool 15 mm river scene that makes up for what its lacking in paint department in a really great idea. That's one of the things about this contest I am discovering- is that paint will not always get your thru..its combination of things not least of which is the whims of the voter on what's fresh or immediately eye catching, and unfortunately Pirates are seemingly a bit long in the tooth this round. So I could really use your vote, if you think my entry deserves it. Overall its been a great first time LPL, I was shooting for a top 10 finish..but dont think I can pull it off without winning this last round...
Plastic Legions is a hobby blog covering my own Wargaming, model building and miniature painting pursuits. I'm currently modeling and Painting figures for Bolt Action, SAGA , Deadzone, Frostgrave and Otherworld Skirmish.
From 2007-2011 I was a die hard Warhammer Fantasy tournament player, but have since regressed back to my roots of casual skirmish games and the enjoyment of painting.
The blog is a decade old now and that is hard to believe! I started in 2007 right after getting back into hobby after 20 years away and my 1st child. Over these last 10 years I've made alot of new friends and done alot of great gaming. I really have an "anything goes" approach to the blog so other games and topics will arise as they may, which is why you wont find me on alot of other peoples dedicated blogrolls for "x" game. I'm kind of just out there on the digital "High Seas" winging it, but like a good pirate that's the way I like it. If you want to contact me I can be emailed at: email@example.com
