Hi All,

*** Has anyone out there built a 28mm Barbary Pirates / Corsairs ship and crew? ***

I recently picked up a couple of packs of RAFM's corsair pack which comes with three figures:

1. A standing fellow with an Arab sword and a fez.
2. A kneeling fellow with a fez and musket.
3. A more traditional pirate fellow with a head wrap, pistol, and dagger.

I've already built a 28mm WAB Arab / Moor / Saracen / Andalusian army and have some leftover figures including a few odd Ral Partha Sinbad figures from way back when…

I'm very tempted to build a Barbary war galley with crew… and am looking for some inspiration or to see if some wargamers before me have created anything to inspire me. Please share links!

You can find Xebecs on Ebay, but they aren't cheap: auction

For several years, I've been tempted to buy one and bandsaw it into a waterline wargaming ship, but they're just a bit too pricey for me.

Old Glory makes a Xebec. I believe Eureka makes a range of corsairs, and Crusader and Foundry have a few in their packs.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for all of the great advice!

I have taken some phots of my 28mm Barbary Pirates / Corsairs crew if you'd like to peruse them here:


I also have a few others photos including some 28mm WAB El Cid Sudanese spearmen.
