I have bought a lot of pirate miniatures at the last two Salute shows so No Quarter is the natual driver for combining these figures in to practical use.

While I want a live pirate army, I got almost as many undead pirates so I want to make use of them as well.

I have not create the army list yet, but here are some random thoughts and notes:

  • Guns: Most pirate miniatures have guns. This will make the minis expensive in points and I don't want a a shooty army anyway. So I want to give all pirates a base skill that gives them plusses on charging (blazing pistols) possibly similar to a lance charge attack.
  • Undead: As I want to make use of my undead pirates I want to have a skill that if a pirate dies he then return as an undead pirate which will have crappy stats but be a nuisance nevertheless.
  • Undead stats: All undead pirates will have same stats, possibly with the difference of the general or a voodoo doctor.
  • Minions: As I have several small pirate minis (monkeys, halflings etc) I want to use them for practical purpose. I want them to be killable enhancements to characters such as pluses to RAT or MAT.
  • Spy glass: I got several pirates with spy glasses. I want to use these as unit attachments either to see concealed troops or perhaps to enhance their gun charging ability.
