Pirates, you say? Pirates I say. Another of those armies that began (over 5 years ago) when I saw a cheap small galleon which just begged to be used as an airboat. I've had a box of Orion Pirates sitting in the unpainted figure pile since not long after, waiting.
So, FINALLY!!! The army is underway. I decided that I'd take ore of a Hollywood bright colours approach than a realistic dark sombre approach, and here are the first elements.
|The assemblage so far: airboat, magician, hero and two warbands|
|The war band: riotous scurvy pirate dogs.. arrrr|
|Hero base: Ling John Silver and pirate mate with treasure map|
|Magician base: sirens on rocks bespelling sailors and luring them to their doom|
|The airboat, based up and flying high over the waves.|
