28mm Pirate scale & sculpt compatibility ?
« on: May 23, 2013, 05:14:47 PM »
Am new to Pirates and have just picked up a couple of figures - just couldnt resist them - a 'not' Capt Jack Sparrow from Musketeer Miniatures and the free give away figure that came with Legends of the High Seas from Northstar Miniatures.
My question is.... is there a manufacture of Pirates (and Royal Navy crews) that would fit scale and sculpt wise with these 2 figures, I'm after something that is more detailed than charicatured ?
Thanks in advance

Foundry. A large range, excellent sculpts with loads of character.

Yes. 

Some in my gallery LINK but also Crusader that "fit."  Even Black Scorpion female pirates are OK with them.  Only the Dwarf Pirates will not work with my other figures.

I'm not familiar with the two figures you currently have, but if Malamute says those figures work with Foundry's pirates, then they will work with Old Glory's as well.  You can see my Foundry and Old Glory pirates side-by-side in pics 58, 63, 64, 67, 69, and 70 in my Pirate Gallery at www.warin15mm.com/Pirates.html

Foundry will work.  They are fantastic figures.
