If large numbers of naked women with bows aren't enough for you, you must set high standards for your entertainment!

Actually these look far better than the masked warriors, IMHO:

Amazon Cannibal Women of the Moon Islands



Copplestone AF02 - Ngoni Female Archers

Argonor, are you planning to use them in a pirate setting?

I use them as one of the tribes of the Amazon Women of the Dark Side of the Moon in my Dreamlands RPG.  ;)

Actually, the purchase was triggered by a game of Congo at this year's Horisont convention last weekend. But, as I never buy anything that cannot be multi-purposed, they should feature in other games as well (I'll try to shoe-horn them into my both IHMN and OGAM projects, and should I get some pirate gaming up and running, they are an obvious choice for some islander cannibals or guardians of some ancient jungle temple).

Now, back on topic!

Argonor, I am planning to use them as temple guardians in a remake of the classical RIGG'S SHRINE scenario. But with Pirates. In the Dark Side of the Moon.  ;)

Very promising! Will you write new rules for this scenario, too?
I still admire the elegance of your CROM rules.

This is all for an RPG I will be running. I'll be using the Savage Worlds rules as that's what my group is familiar with.
I am writing all the adventures myself which I will put up somewhere, maybe here at first, for those that want to use them.
Unfortunately my current health problems mean I can't sit at my desks to paint or build so everything apart from the scenario writing, map drawing, player hand out designing and NPC card making is on hold.
When I can get back to producing things more suited to this forum I will be working on a small set of Chinese pirates. I have no idea when this will be though, probably not until next year.

As an example of what I can manage to do at the moment here is the island the players will begin on, waking up on the beach after their ship is wrecked.

My original design sketch quickly drawn in Bamboo Paper on the iPad:



The Players' map which they can draw on. The basic sketch worked up in Sketchbook Pro on the iPad:



The GM's version with the hidden items layer revealed:



And finally a player map to show its relationship with the other islands in the chain:

Thanks for the reply!

And may you get better soon.  Hope it's nothing serious.

OK. Back to this.
The Pirates themselves are being painted and I've written everything I'm going to until play gets underway and I know which of the plots the players are going to follow.
I'm back to painting my contribution to this, the Chinese are being done, boats have been 3D printed and are being assembled and I finished this MDF coach from TT Combat. Horses are from Warbases.

Matakishi, I liked that website a lot, CONGRATULATIONS!

That Monkey Shrine is PRICELESS!

That coach reminded me of the awesome carriage chase scene of the movie  "Cutthroat Island" (1995)   ;)

That's the sort of thing we'll be going for :)
