Pirates of the Caribbean

Pirates of the caribbean from Mars.
They look bad on the PSR (Here) site but the sprue I got turned out with less flash than shown on the Review and the small amount that there was, was soon removed with a bit of blade work.
Most of them will end up as part of Jack Dore´s band of Pirate´s and the rest as Bodstonian Militia.
Aha!! Me Mateys!!!
Recruits to the bodstonian militia.
As PSR says, the swords/cutlasse´s are a bit big and should really be trimmed down but I´ve left them big as they look more threatening
Cap´n and first mate.

Anne. I should have cut the cutlass free from the feather in her hat., it Looks like part of the cutlass ..that or painted the feather another colour.

  5. Nice figures! I think that the painting work can give value to "odd" figures.
    You have done a very good paint job !

  7. These look great, I want to buy Mars' 30YW stuff but the PSR reviews don't sound very convincing.

  10. very nice stuff Paul! and that really does suit Anne! you always seem to be able to defy PSR and make incredible bods out of some apparently rather bad figures.
