I've always wanted to Sparrow ever since I saw POTC but could never find a good sculpt of him, then I saw a POTC Sparrow produced by a company called Zizzle. The figure was very cheap as it was a mass produced figure the clothing and head sculpt needed work but nothing to hard to fix up. Once the figure and base were completed they were painted using Vallejo, Reaper and GW paints.

RECIPE

1: Body, head & hands - The body is from Dragon, the head is from Zizzle and the hands are from BBI, The head was stripped of the old paint and repainted as were the hands. The rings on the fingers are from the old Zizzle hands I cut them off and put them on the BBI hands.

2: Uniform and euipment - Are all from Zizzle except the pants which are Dragon, the clothing as been boiled in fabric softner and a 1/4 teaspoon of bleach and once dry have been altered to fit the smaller Dragon body.

The sword has had it's blade replaced with a blade cut and shaped from plasticard and the pistol had been repainted.

3: Base and Gold - the base is a 7" Disney Indiana Jones base I used sculpty to cover over the stone blocks and made rocks/boulders, it was then covered in model railway static grass and fine sand and the plants are plastic fish tank plants. The whole base was painted using Vallejo Paints.

The Loot is some old chain I had in the bits box and the coins are WW2 1/6 scale buttons sanded down and then painted to look like tarnished gold, the bag has been made using a old 1/6 pair of pants cut and sewn together.
