In my pile of lead are a number of pirate figures. Some are the original wargames foundry miniatures and the majority are Eureka Miniatures when they initially came out. I painted a couple of figures, but the majority are unpainted (as usual).
I am seriously thinking of starting up with pirates again, as I think Matakishi's "Crom" rules will be perfect for pirate games.
I have enough figures to get a game going provided I play pirate crew vs pirate zombies and or skeletons.
What I want to do is have enough variety to play any kind of game:
vs Soldiers/Sailors (French/English/Spanish) using War of Spanish Succession figures
vs undead (Zombies and Skeletons)
vs other pirates
vs Natives (cannibals or many other types)
vs Sea Monsters
Q: What else have I not thought about for opponents for my pirates?
Pirates: Eureka Miniatures, Foundry, Brigade Games, Black Cat Bases, Black Scorpion, Reaper, Artizan, Crusader(?)
Soldiers: Front Rank Miniatures, Black Cat Bases, Wargames Factory (soon to be released plastic)
Undead: Eureka, Foundry (I think?)
Natives: Eureka, Reaper, Copplestone
Sea Monsters: Black Cat Bases
Q: What other figures have I missed?
Ooooh - I just found this site that has a guide to Pirate figures :-D Pirate Guide
