Lauren Silversail, the Pirate Babe

Lauren was born a high elf but always felt constrained by the forest, her family and sometimes even her clothes.

 
So ditching all three, she joined HRH and her crew and set sail for adventure.


And in the process of finding adventure, she somehow lost her knickers.

Now if any of you lot out there have Lauren's knickers, you should be ashamed of yourself. The poor lass will catch her death dressed like this.

She's from Reaper Miniatures, is 25mm and was sculpted by John Winter.  This is my first Reaper figure, but it won't be my last as I think I may have found a new drug to feed my lead addiction.

Lauren has two pirate girlfriends and one of them is almost ready to come off the painting table. The other has base colours applied. I think you'll like them as the colour palettes are really unconventional.

Now for those of you who don't know, Monty won Ray's big giveaway and has transferred the prize to me. And some of you may be thinking that he did it just so I could force Rousell to paint up some foo-foo girly figures. Well, you'd be wrong. I'm sending Ray three figures only. Two of them are 1/48 scale figures from Tom Meier's Seven Years War collection and the other is a mounted knight from Meier's Arthurian collection.  So when you see Ray post those gorgeous figures, you'll have Monty to thank for that.

Well folks, it's mid March and still snowing where I'm at. If you're having trouble coping with it, try complaining about it. I know I will.

  5. Great mini, Anne!
    I should warn you, that another stage of the addiction is looking at dining room tables as fields of battle that MUST be covered in themed terrain! ;)

    1. When my army arrives in June I'll be doing just that!

    2. actually seeing dinning room tables as fields of battle is not a sign of addiction but enlightenment! covering them with terrain is not a lead/plastic/paint fumes induced action but an act of liberation! you are freeing the table to be a greater being to be the base on which many a great tale shall be told!

      (note to self, I am showing signs of addiction again.... bugger).

      good work Anne. Look at it this way nobody can now accuse her of getting her "knickers in a twist", though I hope that they are found soon, before it snows again.

      Please send us some of that cold weather, that snow would become much needed rain here, its so dry, so hot and so humid. Crazy weather

  7. I love how she ditched everything for adventure, what a brilliant character you've built up here Anne, well painted too!

  8. That was nice of Monty!
    Figure looks great. We don't want her restrained by clothes. That would be wrong.

  9. Nicely done Anne, I especially like the highlighting on the black leather.

  10. I'd be glad to be robbed by such a pirate.

    I'm a gentleman you see

    Nice work Anne

    dashing as pirate ladies should be

    with the hair and swung back arm...

  13. Lauren is rockin' hot, and is gonna drive those pirates to do unspeakable things on the high seas.

  14. Very nicely painted up, and indeed she seems to have ditched those fugly cloths that Elves wear! Nice change I would wager!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Do you get a little bit of shy giggles when you're painting the butt? I would. Although, it's kind of odd that a person who doesn't wear knickers would wear an elaborate hat. You have done well as usual. Great job.

  16. A nice figure, beautiful colors and beautiful degrades Anne
    Greetings

    1. We're getting hit by snow today. Really this Winter is turning me into a depressed mess. I hate being indoors and the world has no colour in it right now. Ugly and dead is what it is.

      The Hubby really likes these Pirate Babes I'm working on. I'm going to be doing four cowgirls that will be The O'Leary girls go West. Hubby likes those too.

    2. haha getting all erotic now, might melt the snow away. Yeah we have a ton again and more coming friday, really need to move some place warm.

  18. That is an amazing paintjob there Anne and those colours really stand out. But as the poor lass has lost her undergarments I will be off the Marks and Spencers to purchase her some granny pants.

  19. Great paint job, very striking colors!

  20. Well there's a feisty lass right? Lovely figure...hur hur hur...!

  21. A right saucy wench. Reaper does have some cool figs. I've been tempted by them.

    1. You should get into them. They're easy to paint and there is loads of variety. My addiction to them is becoming alarming.

  22. Lauren Silversail is my kind of cheeky pirate babe!

  23. What a wonderful figure and back story Anne!

    As for the whereabouts of her missing knickers, well, as a lady I can never speak of my conquests ;)

  25. I will come back later on to see her since Blogger is currently experiencing some problems with pictures and you can't see any pics on all the blogs.
    But I do love that she is of the elven race :)

    1. ah, yes, methinks I've seen her before, wasn't she working some time as a waitress in our Shenanigans Pub? :)

    2. Oh yes, she did. But she got tired of the men pinching her bottom so she left us. I'm going to have to hire some new ladies as we've only got Helga now and she's got that mole. You know the one that's on her chin and has a hair growing out of it. Really puts the customers off their mead you know.

    3. maybe we could hire that lady with the big boobies that Ray loves? She seemed like she could handle the guests and their shenanigans?

  26. Anne, as told before... I love her (and did you find the outfit)
    Real good sculpt, and even better way you did make come this girl alive!

    I got her on my wishlist now...

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love her! I really like how you painted her hair a fiery red and her shirt a bright pink - great contrast! Then you had the hat tie it all together with her skirt. Great job!

    Snow? Still? Gross! We've been getting rain and lots of it but it means it's making the ground ready for Spring, right? Right!!

    Happy First Day of Spring!!

    1. I'm keeping palette limited on these girls because I'm using such weird colours. It's allowing me to use combo's I would never have dreamed of. Really loving these figures too.

      I think everyone has had a pretty bad time over Winter and we need it to make it's final exit. Yeah the rain now will help in Summer. Hey, my crocuses are up and they'll survive cold weather. I'll photograph them as soon as the first bloom opens. I always get those first blooms on record.

  28. She is lovely. Great job, Anne!

  29. I'm still kicking myself over not getting in on that Reaper kickstarter a while back.

  30. Great work - it would be so easy to fall in love with such a pirate!

  31. Lauren has been painted prettily, Anne. I also like Reaper figures. I am partly done painting Reapers "Jesse the Werewolf slayer" accompanied by a big bruiser of a Rottweiler. (Also a Reaper figure...Bad Doggy!!

    1. I've looked at Jesse the Werewolf and thought about it. Right now I have a crawling, itching need to visit the website. I have to buy before ReaperCon though as they will be out of stock on everything after that.

  32. Wonderful painted figure! Looks very well! Good choice of colors.

  33. She's very pretty Anne, voluptuous even and that's damn nice of Monty, Ray said he can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Nice painting Anne, and very generous of Monty to pass on his prize to you

  35. I don't suppose she will be the last elf to lose her knickers in pursuit of adventure - no that still doesn't sound any better! What a delightful sculpt and beautifully painted Anne.

  40. Lovely work, Anne! Spicy hot, with swirling red hair and other lovely attributes as well. I can hear the siren song of fantasy whenever I click over here! ;-)

    And thanks for the shout out. The minute I heard your idea and saw those lovely figures you had queued up for Ray, it was a no-brainer. Which suits me just fine.

    I feel your pain on the overly long winter. It was -14 degrees yesterday and we have 2-3' of snow on the ground. Just UGH!
