Every day is like Christmas when you’re a butterfly...you never know which of the many (Brother Handro: many.....) orders will arrive in any given day...
Despite appearances, mainly the many hundred pewter soldiers grey and neglected in my hobby room, I love the Historical pirate era game Blood and Plunder! The team at Firelock games have designed and developed a stunning system which plays well, is easy to pick up, and (Der H: best of all...) contains pirates!
Recently Firelock tried a new funding system; Firestarter. This system allowed pre-ordering with a view to being charged once a threshold was reached. Think of it as Kickstarter light!
The result of this process is these gorgeous European Pikemen:
Two sets of 4 identical casts, each comes with a length of shaped metal for a spear NB not suitable for children/cats! The unit sizes in B&P range from 4-12 usually so 8 is a nice number to get started with.
The casts are clean as always, and have some nice details making them generic enough to be ‘european’ without obvious restriction to which european faction.
Ill probably put there guys together pretty soon, but painting them....well, that is the eternal struggle.
I shall here VOW to paint my Blood and Plunder collection in the autumn, following the 2019 Melos campaign.... after all, I have 1000pts of Krieg and 1000pts of mechanicum to finish.
Thought for the day: “Take what you can. Give nothing back!”
