Whilst I didn't really need to know how many musket-armed or sword(cutlass) armed figures I had, it would give me something else to post about and another chance to take some photographs of the whole collection.
Or so I thought !
I did start sorting through the two boxes of pirates that I posted about last week when I once more came across the Sepoy that I should have put with the others mutineers.
It was returning him to his rightful place in one of the drawers of a steel office filing cabinet) that I came across the following figures (see photograph below)
It came as a bit of a surprise to find yet more pirates.
They're painted but haven't had their bases finished (the other two boxes contain Celts/ancient Brits or some such that were to face my Romans though I can't ever see that happening)
So what was the results of this find ? The photographs reveal all:
|28 cutlass/pistol armed pirates of various manufacturers|
|A trio of axe weilding scallywags|
|Four pirate-type women of dubious virtues|
So yet another 35 figures to add to the mix which means I've roughly painted (in both senses of the word) about 200 figures and have based all but these 35. All I have to do now is figure out how I originally based the majority and try to match these up (one day).
|The magnificent seven peg-legs|
I also discovered that the Wargames Foundry version of Long John Silver is the third figure from the left in the above photograph, which prompted me to search for both Ben Gunne (sp?) and Jim Hawkins, being the only two others from the 'Treasure Island' pack that I could recollect.
So that's it then for this week - another thirty-five pirates to add to the mix, even if there is still a bit of basing to be done and all because of a misplaced Sepoy!
Thanks once more for visiting and as always your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
