Stunning! There's a lot of talent on display here. The water on the bases is brilliant.

I suppose we only see the very best painting coming out of eastern Europe, but I wonder if they aren't bringing some new ideas to the hobby. They apparently aren't constrained by "This is the way we've always done it" thinking, since it seems to be a newer hobby there than in the UK or USA.

I like the way some of the swords and knives are painted: blackish, with silver edges. I've seen a lot of metal blackened by exposure to the weather, so this seems realistic to me. Keep the edge sharp, but don't waste time cleaning the rest of the blade. I'm afraid pirates have always struck me as low-end, low maintenance naval types.
