These rather excellent British Navy Marines are from yet another pile of models that have been wanting some paint for ages. Once I actually got started, it did not take long to paint five.
These models are all from Black Scorpion and will ultimately crew my Man O’War.
I did some research online looking at 18th century uniforms but was really after a uniform that did not include white trousers, why would any soldiers wear too much white?
I did find a few examples of uniforms that fitted my criteria. I also wanted to go for blue trousers so they would have some synergy with my Meridian steampunk infantry.
I did manage to get some odds and ends finished this week, lots to tools, weapons and accessories to scatter around on my ships, towns and just about any gaming table. My favourite bit is the gun case.
If there is one thing I like, it is big walking mechs of one type of another. This Privateer Press model gets used in games of No Quarter, usually with a dwarf army.
Another Ron and Bones model with great character, this Paul Boron figure is wielding a fish and about to inflict a slap around the face to some unfortunate victim.
Wallace Mason, the man with the exploding pigs. With six or so sticks of dynamite strapped to each porker, these pork bombs can make a massive mess.
These models are some more of the fantastic Ron and Bones range of pirates.
Can’t remember who makes this model, but it gets used as the leader of the Imperial forces.
Got some Ron and Bones pirates for my ships…this Captain model is great!
