I had a text the other week from Martin over on 28mm Heroes blog. Asking for my address as he had a little pressie for me????? A few days later these 14 Foundry Pirates arrived in the post!!
To say I was pleased is rather an understatement! And what made it even better (what can be better than free figures?) is that last month I had my finger hovering over the buy button for the same figures on Foundry's website!
I planned on getting 2 small units of 6 figures each, to have as Haitian Sharpshooters or skirmishers and perhaps a few command figures so I thought about these Pirates as they look different to the Trent miniatures I've already painted.
I'm very glad I didn't buy them now, thank you very much Mr Cook!!!!
Unfortunately the figures got a little damaged in the post, so I had to paint over a few chips, which took no time at all. Then I followed that with a coat of Army Painter Strong tone stain, matt varnish and topped it off with my usual style of basing.
Thank again Martin.
