I found that even thinning the paints with matte medium the results were either chalky, or thin and streaky. Not at all what I had hoped. These paints did make a passable wash when thinned with some alcohol.
I still have about 30 more of these cuthroats, so I'll probably paint some more as ghost pirates, and the rest as regular pirates.
Now that the arctic conditions seem to be subsiding I hope to finish my home project quickly so that I can get my proper paints and brushes out of storage and complete some better projects.

First of all Robert, welcome to the Challenge!
I'm sorry to hear of your extended home renovations and appreciate the efforts you went through to get your entry in before the cutoff. Great work!
These spectral seadogs look the business. The luminous grey-green you've used really does provide a wonderful effect and will provide an excellent basis for your upcoming reinforcements. I look forward to seeing more as you become settled into your home.
30 points for your entry onto the roster. Again, welcome aboard and well done!
