Underway with the Dwarven Sea Dogs

Looking for loot in all the wrong places..
Now that the masts, guns and sails are nearly done I felt that a few more pics were in order.

The masts and spars were stained with golden oak finish then a wrap of black thread was wound around the pieces then painted flat black to simulate the tarred rope woven around masts.

The sails were cut from card stock, then I laminated linen on both sides with wood glue and trimmed to shape. After several very light coats of white primer followed by painting the sails with Reaper Ivory and allowing 24 hours drying time the sails were ready to attach to the spars with heavy thread. I will add some appropriate decorations to the sails but other than that they are finished.
