Black Scorpion Miniatures - Royal Marines

Over recent months I have picked up at the occasional show the odd pack of Black Scorpion's Pirate range. Sculpted by Adam Clarke they are some of the finest looking miniatures around, cast in resin they were a touch lighter than what I was used to, but they took the paint well.
Was I distracted by the glass show case or loose change in my pocket who knows.


Black Scorpion's range contains figures for Pirates, Privateers and Royal Navy together with Pirate Dwarves, Elves and Orcs & Goblins, these more fantastical ranges are of little interest to me not when I can have them facing off against the Guardians of Atlantis and Mantics new Trident range.....
Nautical nonsense :-)


I knew they would come in handy for some Black Powder type skirmish gaming just not sure where.
Customers Men breaking up Smugglers and Wrecker gangs in Cornwall?
Scouting Parties in the Caribbean?
Taking on Highwaymen in the English Countryside?
Fighting off raids from Atlantis.



 
A pleasure to paint and something a little different from the Deserts of Egypt.
