Pirates vs. Undead, Part I


Two summers ago I picked up a couple of pirate figures while visiting family on the East Coast. I stopped in at toy shop and found these great pirate figures--about the same size as little green army men. They came with a bevy of pirate accessories: a dinghy with oars, a few sacks and crates of cargo, a ladder (!), and the requisite treasure chest with gold. The accessories are nothing to write home about (hence the lack of pics) but the figure pack has some darn decent minis and they were cheap too: about $8.99!

And that's not all! It came with a horde of scurvy, undead scoundrels! No doubt they're angry about having their sandy graves disturbed by the pirates trying to bury their treasure. The photos aren't lit so great, but you can click to enlarge and see some detail.

So of course you know this means war....
The trusty first mate leads a scrappy landing party through the wretched undead mob....

...on his way to rescue the Cap'n!

Is there anything better than pirates and skeletons duking it out??!

Back At It...

Well I've had a very busy last few months, and I thought it was time to get my act together and get back to posting. I'll be posting some more mini photos soon, but I thought perhaps a preview might be in order....
See you soon!
