Pirates Anglais du 18ème Siècle, 1/72 Figurines Orion 72001

Les pirates anglais du 18e siècle de chez Orion offer an amazing variety of figurine poses, they finally top an industry record set by Airfix over thirty years ago. These pirates are rough looking, apparently because the master figurines have been carved exactly to scale, whereas other manufacturers use oversize masters which are scanned et miniaturized during the electronic mould making process. The pirates shown here have been mounted on socles multi-figurine d’infanterie escarmouchant compatible avec several popular wargame rules. Every stand can be a small vignette of a typical pirate scene: boarding an enemy ship, brawling in a tavern, et digging for treasure on a deserted island.
