I wanted an ‘historical’ opponent for the growing horde of pirates I’ve accumulated (other than undead and rats, coming soon) and these Barbary Corsair Pirates seemed to fit the bill. They will also double nicely as Arabian Nights foes in fantasy or pulp settings (I do love multi-purpose miniatures).
They are from 2 different manufacturers. Most are from the States – Thoroughbred Miniatures (pack link here – TB01T 15mm Tripoli Pirates). Great service.
The others are from War Modelling Miniatures (Spain) but their site appears to be down at the moment so I cannot confirm pack details. They are mostly the ‘command’ figures and are really nice miniatures. Facebook here.
The observant will notice the Red Ann miniature from Rebel Minis that crept in during painting sessions. Rebel and Blue Moon make up the bulk of the ‘western’ pirates.
