|"Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's off to kill we go"|
The figures themselves are highly usable of course, both as pirates and civilians and come in two distinct varieties, those attacking and those looking like they may attack.
I don't believe I have any other pirate figures, other than the foundry ones that are axe-armed.
I singled out the chap on the left for his gnome-like (or dwarfish) qualities as an example of my axe-wielders (I do have another three that appeared in an earlier post)
|Two left-handers and a special (I like this pose)|
|Men wielding their choppers|
|A rare breed pf pirate, 'The woodsman'|
The two individual on the left are probably 'named' characters from Foundry whilst the chap on the right is a captive. I've included him once more in the photograph below, for scale purposes.
|Pirate cricketers ?|
To complete this post here's yet another figure I came across with the dreaded "chest foot":
|"I'd have preferred a parrot"|
Gunners -26; Muskets etc.-74; Melee armed - 97; "Grenadiers" - 4; Others - 54; Unfinished bases (various) - 35 making for a total of 290! I think have overdone it a bit and next week I'll be posting about their opposition, just the single post though and dependant upon whether or not I find them!
In other news, I discovered that my latest follower. Michal Kucharski has a blog that can be found HERE - it's an interesting mix of various genres (and his painting is superb). It's well worth a look .
I'll also take this opportunity to apologise to those whose blogs I normally leave comment. Real life has raised its ugly head once more, in various guises, which along with the normal round of new and old health issues, there has also been a family bereavement.
As usual your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
