Here are the figures that I have currently put together. I just got some new heads today, so there are more than when I posted the pirate army in the army thread, also close up pictures.

Some nice looking figures in here! I agree with Captain Braunsfeld, that some blue/red coats and maybe some civilians as well would look really good with them.

I really like the wide variety you've included here. A very nice bunch of figures!

Cardinal's Guards - I've actually done something similar to have some counterparts for the musketeers (but I didn't post them pirate_sceptic.gif )

Yes, assembling a Cardinal's Guard was one of the first things I had to do when the collectible musketeers came out. I've seen a couple other interpretations of the Guards, and they're all good. Share yours with us!

Hi! Great idea posting minifig crews! Will get my privateers of The Parrot up here soon;-). Love those already posted - was just wondering: where is the sword of the type carried by the Cardinal's Guard from? (Think Capt Braunsfeld also has such a weapon).

Yes, the rapier is from BrickArms. Also, the George Washington torso is a sticker from BrickForge. Except for painting Ben Franklin's hair, everything else is official LEGO in the figs I posted.

I'm really enjoying these early 17th century musketeer style mini-figures

Captain Braunsfeld, I like how you have the cape shifted to the side on some to accomodate the scabbard and sword. It creates an illusion of movement. Well done!

Taken with my phone this morning... ...nothing particularly innovative with this bunch, but like the idea of showing the crew separately - AND I wanted to proove I do have a crew (the last pics of Parrot several months ago showed her totally abandoned! - just need to get the vessel in order and put them on board now....:-/).

Anyway, here is the crew of The Parrot (a 14 gun brig, originally built for naval service, but now in the hands of several privateers)

Preparing stores and equipment before the first voyage:

I'm in with these guys.... :pir-grin:

A cigar box seems like a good environment for them! I'd be interested in hearing descriptions for them.

A very classic-looking bunch. I particularly like the guys in the second picture.

Fine - a good bunch of guys.

Many of them seem to be "the captain"... I hope they will sort it out.

Thanks,

and that's true, thing is, they all share the same enemy..

haha, not sure for "the cigar box gathering"... something may be hidden inside
