This past week, we had a major cold snap hit us and were faced with wind chills deep into the -30s. Which meant there wasn't much leaving the house happening. Which also meant I was able to sit at the painting desk for hours on end!
This week I completed all the dreadnoughts for my Adepticon list and got started on a bust of Captain Barbossa from Pirates of the Caribbean.

|Sunday night I started playing around with the Pirate Fury bust from Nuts Planet. It was a nice change of pace from all of the army painting I've been doing lately.|
It took a bit to get back in the swing of things though. I'd not done a display quality piece since before GenCon in August and its been since June that I painted skin on something this size.
After a little bit of struggle, I was able to get into the groove and really dig in.
As of Monday night this is where he's at. I am really happy with him so far. His head and hat are nearly completely finished and that piece is loose so I can paint the upper body without them in the way.
I'll likely get some more work done on him later on tonight. Probably by finishing off the hat's feathers.
That's it for now though. It feels good to have the dreadnoughts finished and ready for Adepticon. I still have the display board to finish up and that's next after Barbossa is finished.
The time crunch is on. Only roughly 7 weeks til Adepticon!
Until next time, you can catch me on Twitter and Instagram. Check out YouTube for the Let's Paint series and other videos.
