About the Project

I've decided to revisit my first historical games and give my minis a face lift. I dug out legends of the old West a month ago and realised how chipped my minis were. So I'll be revisiting my western and my pirates for these classic skirmish games.

The one thing I've always wanted for the high seas are a couple of ships for the scanarios in the book. When I saw sarissa had a kit out I thought I'd give it a go. So far I've found some parts of the build a bit fiddly. I broke one rib of the ship and the thin card can get a bit damaged if your rough with it. The instructions can be a bit vague in places but I've got the first deck done. The one thing I've always wanted for the high seas are a couple of ships for the scanarios in the book.

A fun scenario in the high seas book is a scuffle in a tavern using bottles and chairs rather than weapons. This kit comes with bottles. I think I need to get the set again to fill the tavern space A fun scenario in the high seas book is a scuffle in a tavern using bottles and chairs rather than weapons. This kit comes with bottles.

The good thing about the boats is the space between the seats is just right to stand a mini in The good thing about the boats is the space between the seats is just right to stand a mini in

The plastic kit fro great escape games gave me the opportunity to kit bash a couple of hired guns from the Alamo supplement for legends. There are no knife hands in the kit so I used a frostgrave hand for the sinister sack head knife fighter. But the kit did come with some dinomite for my explosive expert

While at salute I picked up the plastic kit for dead man's hand. I'm using it to create some Texas Rangers and a couple if hired characters for legends. I also got the science experiment miniature just to have as a bit of odd scenery in the blacksmiths shopWhile at salute I picked up the plastic kit for dead man's hand.

Van Ben himself escaped the carnage and to cure his injuries drank snake oil to regain his wits. Instead he got a dicky tummy and had to abandon the gang.
