Black Scorpion Miniatures


Black Scoprian Miniatures create various 32mm fantasy minis, including some pretty cool fantasy football minis. From what I looked at, the sculpts are pretty nice, done by Adam Clarke, a former sculpter for GW. There appears to be a game with a range of minis and a rulebook, all based around pirates, though I haven't looked to deep into it.

Examples:

Very nice. They have a lot of character. I particularly like the pirate with the rifle.

When I was a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball...

For those who don't know, Gav Thorpe has written the Cutlass! rulebook.

I do want that Mighty Duck with the Minimi though.

been tempted to get some of their models for ages, just never got round to it, nice to have affordable characterful detailed models not cluttered in stupid details.

Their pirate-figs have been made in coop with GWS Historical, to be used in their Legends of the High Seas book.

Come April, the game Cutlass by Black Scorpion (indeed written by Gav) will hit the shelves, allowing gameplay with all the races they have got (Humans, Orcs, Undead, Dwarfs and Elves)

They will use D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, D20 where the dice represent a figs' statistics

But why should I write everything down?
Black Scorpion describes the brunt of their rules on their pages

Seems to be promising indeed, and if you want to see their female Pirates, check my armies in my profile

Just ordered one of the Redcoat Marines sets and one of the Pirate Girls for the missus.

Couldn't resist checking them out.
