Hahaaar - l******o pirates. Well shiver me timbers and nadger  me skirlwinkles -oh, hang on; that's rambling Sid Rumpo.
I just ran clear of the end of the Internet and can't find "skirlwinkles". My faith in the the ordering of the universe is shaken Smiley
I even tried Sid Rumbo singing "I'm just a rambling man" ( I think it was him anyway) - nada!

What does a pirate call the next day to come:
'Maaaaar!

Arrrr, twas just thinkin' about dis meself, an' lo an' behold, someone's beat me to it.

Would also like to add me request for mid-late 17th Century to early 18th Century pirates (1650s - 1720, or so), as well as pirate hunters, trollops, ships' crew, 3 Pdr., 4 Pdr., 6 Pdr., 9, 12, an' 18 Pdr. cannons too.

Definitely need some crew for 1/144th scale vessels, forts, etc., etc..

Cutlasses, blunderbusses, pistols, muskets, pikes, etc., etc.. 

Throw in some SE Coastal, American, and/or Caribbean Indians into the mix as well, since they were also involved in various actions.

Need government troops for the English/British, Spanish, French, and Dutch, as well, amongst others.

1. Have a look at the League of Augsburg range as regards a very complete list of government troops.

2. Ships - looked at this some years ago when researching a museum diorama for the Relief of Derry in the William Wars.  The Jacobite forces had constructed a boom across the Foyle.  The Williamite ships Mountjoy and  HMS Dartmouth broke the boom and relieved the city.
   The American firm Lindberg have an eclectic  "fit the box" range of at least 3 late 17th century pirate era sailing ships, from Captain Kidd's ship in 1/130 to Half Moon in 1/170. Heller have a 1/200 galleon and even Zvezda have offerings.   Its not difficult to modify and blodge to a passable waterline model in 1/150 or 10mm

3.  What we may be looking at is a doable but limited supplement to the existing LofA range - the pirate personalities, the cutlass wielding pirates, wenches, casks of rum, swag, long boats, and - accurate 1/150 scale deck cannon.   We take our sense of scale from know objects, so sailors, kit and cannon in 1/150 will help the ships look right.  Cool

EC26 Artillery Equipment (18)



Cannon balls to stack on decks and docksides, grenadoes to sow confusion when hurled onto enemy ships or into bunches of pursuing government troops, barrels of rum to smuggle, barrels of government powder to steal, pots of Spanish dubloons to purloin? Smiley
