AHPC 6 Donnybrook - The crew of HMS Ruby



Can't believe this is only my 3rd entry into the Challenge proper?? 
And NO, they're not the same figures I entered into the last bonus round!
The figures are  all Foundry figures, apart from the leader which is a Casting Room
figure, they were painted the same time as the chaps 
from HMS Badger Dragon and are the other half of the Foundry packs.

I did wonder why some of the figures in the packs I bought from ebay had what looked
 like tight curly hair??

Now I know why...Doh!

Pirates And Swashbucklers  - Balthazars Marauders - CUT032

And there was me, as I was painting the buggers up, thinking, perhaps I should 
paint one of these as a coloured chap??
Oh well?


 These rogues earned me 45 points and pushed me into 47th place, .And have a few things up my sleeve to hopefully get me up to my 500 point mark.....fingers crossed!!!

  13. You're as bad as the Oscars, Ray, giving all the starring roles to whites. Black miniatures matter too! :)
    A very fine crew of scallawags there.
