Galleon Step One

So many pieces..But pretty they are. It's always fun to see how far you can take a project this size. I began ponderously but slowly I decided on a paint scheme while I trimmed and sanded..and drilled and sculpted, re-sanded. 

So It looks like a Galleon.

I know the theme is usually nautical like a dock or cargo bay for these guys so I wanted to do something different. Trenches seem to fit the setting so maybe a muddy trench would be telling enough of moisture nearby. 

I wanted ti to look a little more fortress-like and also more of a mid campaign look. I built a sort of hunting stand made of the same materials in the trench, figuring the pirates adapted throughout the skirmishes and added a gunman to the right shoulder. Maybe as a guard against smaller targets hiding low in the trenches?

Shazaam, a rough look at where this guy is going :)
