Would these fit ?   https://www.wargamesfoundry.com/collections/pirates-and-swashbucklers?page=2

The Spanish would never arm slaves with muskets and would only very rarely arm free blacks with firearms during this period. They were given lances and pikes. Some of their Native American allies were given firearms, but this was also very rare. They barely had enough for themselves!

Thanks - I should have bought more militia from you at Hurricon on Saturday then!    :D

I have one of the B&P thatch roofed buildings painted now.   I picked that one up at Hurricon and will post some time in near future.

I had a chance to pick up one of the Blood and Plunder new resin buildings at Hurricon in Orlando last week.  It is a nice sturdy model and will serve well as a basic thatch roofed hut found throughout the Spanish Main in our Buccaneer time period.

Some new buccaneers are shown for scale and fit.

Scenario was based on the Drake raids into Nombre de Dios and the mule silver train.  We played in the buccaneer era though as that is what we have figures for.  The fight to intercept the mules headed into town became a general engagement as the Spanish were able to hold on against the initial ambush until reinforcements arrived.

The games we played were play test adaptations of the Commands and Colors system by the game designer Richard Borg himself  :o

Those Foundry ones look fantastic!  I should have sprinkled a few of them among my Maroons.

Looks very exciting! Very nice pics and terrain! Congrats!
I am very interested if the C&C adaptations are available.

I bought all the figures to do something similar to this a few years back but it got lost in the general fog of projects. This thread has awakened my interest however. A new project and I already have most of the figures I could possibly want? Why, it would be rude not to! Thanks for the inspiration!

All the hex tiles are 5 inches (measured flat to flat).  Our local group- based in Orlando Florida has been working custom mats and such with the Deep Cut Studios folks.  Kostas has a great system and high quality stuff- highly recommended!

As I posted previously the game was an adaptation of Richard’s Commands and Colors system.  While the games published are board games - either with blocks or miniatures we mostly use miniatures for all our games.   My favorite aspect of the system is the wonderful blending of rule mechanics that allow for a very fast paced game with multiple decisions each turn. 

This particular game was a playtest of a new ‘pirate’ variation looking at smaller scale engagements and such set around the Spanish Main.  No idea if/when this would be made into something commercial.  His Jacobite game was just published by Compass Games a few weeks ago :)

I will probably get a wack by the moderators but below is another shot of a Commands and Colors game...but this time it is Napoleonic.   lol

This was a ‘what if’ scenario from the 1815 campaign.
