Fifteen men on a dead man's chest

"Fifteen men on the dead man's chest--
...Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!

Drink and the devil had done for the rest--

...Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of  Rum--

Today I offer you fifteen o' me recently finished Wargames Foundry Pirates. These are sadly going to be sold off in order to raise some much needed funds, but I have had great pleasure painting them up. If you want to buy them they will be on E Bay later today.

Plenty of eye candy with these figures and I present them in groups of five for your viewing pleasure:

Group 1:






Group 2:





Group 3:






The banner is a hand painted effort at the 'Jolie Rouge' used by Henry Every.

That be all shipmates I hope you enjoyed seeing them as much as I did painting them.

  16. I like those. They ought to sell easily and generate a bit of a scrap in the bidding. Good luck!
