Non-Pirate Mini-Figures Useful for Pirate MOCing?

I was thinking the torso of the Judge in Collectible Minifigures Series 9 might look good on a pirate captain. It also comes with a wig, although I think the one from S10 Revolutionary Soldier might be better.
Also the Gypsy has hair with bandanna and torso with corset that might look good on a pirate girl.
Also there is of course the new mermaid, if your Pirate theme happens to be supernaturally inclined.

I liked the look of the series 8 conquistador and so far have eleven of them. When the latest Sun newspaper giveaway in October included the LOTR Uruk Hai, i thought that they would make for an easy custom. New heads, helms and white plumes and now I have twelve, gray armour conquistadors ready for a face off.
The customising I had to do was repaint the black helms. For this test run I used Games Workshop gunmetal (now called leadbelcher in the new range). It is a little lighter then the breastplate though. What do you think? Should I leave it as is, or add a little black to make it match the original. Or is the original too dark and I should repaint that to match the hemit.
So; leave as is, repaint the breastplate, or darken the helm??
