Legends of the High Seas
I saw this for a resonable price on the net yesterday so, for no particularly good reason, decided to get a copy. I didn't jump on the pirate bandwagon when it kicked off a few years ago as, at the time I was into the Old West and Back of Beyond as far as skirmish gaming is concerned. I also didn't like Pirates of the Caribbean that much, let alone the pretty dire sequels.
However, I do have a small selection of Peter Pig pirates in 15mm that I bought ages ago for a HOTT army that never materialised, so I haven't broken the all important New Years Resolution (not to start any new projects that I didn't have rules or figures for). I'm not sure if 15mm is the way to go but it would certainly make shipbuilding a lot easier and I have a fair bit of terrain for PITS and AK47 that could be used as well.
If I did go 28mm, I'd keep it to a minuimum, with ebay helping to keep the cost down to something sensible. I quite fancy doing some English Privateers and Spanish Conquistadors rather than the usual Eighteenth Century pirates. Who knows?
