|Captain sculpt 1 of 4 - these were part of a Limeys & Slimeys set and I don't recall how they were labeled were you to try and buy some for yourself. I swear it was a blister labeled "pirate crew" in with the ship but I can't recall.|
|Captain sculpts 2-3 of 4. The fourth carries a rifle across their stomach and is in progress and will be part of a second update mentioned above.|
|Female Pirates - I didn't seal any of these with a dull cote or anything but I damn well should and probably will when I finish the rest of the collection.|
|Sword and Dagger - these are all of the straight pirate sculpts from Minifigs except 3 - a captain with rifle, a guy firing a rifle, and another with a blunderbuss. All "on deck" and coming soon.|
|Sword and Pistol #2 - note the spotted bandana at right ...|
|Sword and Pistol #3 - note the stripy hats ...|
|Boarding Pike- I wasn't ambitious enough to do eyes but I did bother doing the ticking on the trousers.|
|Sword and Pistol #4 - these aren't perfect sculpts but they got character as well as considerable nostalgia appeal. I'll always have a fondness for Minifigs.|
|Gun Crew 1 of 4 - sandy beach bases or model a gun deck on all these? The former of course.|
|Gun Crew 2 of 4 - nowadays I endeavor to build up the steel base to that of the figures base to get a nice slope but that hadn't occurred to me at the time and now the sandy step is too apparent on a lot of these.|
|Gun Crew 3 of 4|
|Gun Crew 4 of 4 - the figure at left had a lit match that was long broken off and lost - an angry, and empty fist is what remains.|
|I wasn't in the habit of basing cannon in the old days but I've changed my mind of late. I probably will base these at some point. The other 4 are identically painted but it's unnecessary to show them here.|
I have a similar number of finished "government" or Royal Navy crews done for yet another update as well as more finished Peter Pig and Museum pirates to throw up. Stay tuned ...
