Northstar Foundry Sale
I spotted this offer today and, in particular, the three packs of naval figures that I could use for pirate games, albeit in a much later period. At six quid a pack they're excellent value and useful as a little self contained painting project in their own right. It's a shame there isn't another pack of gun crew or generic crew figures but at least I'll be able to put a decent skirmish force together for a cutting out raid, anti-slavery boarding party or amphibious landing boatcrew.
Postscript: Just had an email from Northstar to the effect that they'd run out of Marines. Oh well, at least I have some nice crew for a Royal Naval cutter or suchlike. I can always find some troops from another range, perhaps more appropriate to the mid 1700's?
