Don't forget the 15mm pirates from Blue Moon. An amazing range of figures, considering how many unique poses they make. They have ships too.
Yum. She can shiver my timbers any ol' day. Arrrrrgggh!
She might splice yer mainbrace, Eli, with that big chopper she's waving ;)
Aye the Bluemoon pirates are lovely. The Peter Pig ones are OK too but just a bit small.
Or the Bluemoon are a bit large.
Blue moon are 18mm, That extra 3mm makes them a lot more individual and easier to paint. The Peter Pig stuff is nice but small in stature making them a bit harder to paint(for my old eys anyway).I used to have a load of the Peter pig stuff but got shot off them.
I know, and agree BUT I have a regiment of Peter Pig late WW1 Germans and a battalion of Strosstruppen who are too small to take on the Blue Moon Yanks - Belleau Wood et al.So Im sulking in my dugout!Mark
And Mr Porky has female(ish) pirates....Mark
I put my small 15mm figs on thick MDF bases and my larger 18mm on thin steel bases. Evens them up a bit.Might sound a bit odd but have you considered Playmobil Pirates??
Re: bases No, no, no, no NOooooooooooooo! (looks like SCREAM painting).Playmobile - no Mike - I'm more tempted by Black Scorpions Pirate babes - I was there at that moment in wargaming history where suddenly anything and everyting other than model soldiers was 'cool' because it was different. I drew a line in the sand to defend miniatures back then and I aint budgng now. Maginot line or not.LOL!Mark
