Now I review the Toys R Us "Pirates" True Heroes (and Skeletons) set of figures. Folks who like Pirates, Fantasy gamers and fans of Harryhausen's Jason and the Argonauts and the 1999 version of "The Mummy" might like this! An interesting set of pirate figures to crew those 18th century warships.


Yo-Ho-Ho and a Barrel of bones! Enjoy and Please share!

I was thinking along the same lines; pirates land on an island inhabited by skeletons. A couple of barrels gives you more than enough for a good game. If you live near a Toys R Us, they generally go on sale (buy one, get one 1/2 off) during the Christmas shopping season.

As a child, I loved the old Pirate movies and those wonderful ships. You can imagine the thrill I got when as an adult, I got to visit the USS Constitution with its rows of artillery! And I really like pirate figures. There's just something about them that stirs the imagination. I love the entire toy soldier hobby. Pirates are special. One of my fond memories is the time my family went to the Shore and my cousin and I got a bunch of the MPC "ring-hand" pirates and accessories. We had a great time with them. Over half a century later, I had to buy that True Heroes set because I wanted to see a new set of pirates. BTW – I am working on Pirate rules supplements for both Shambattle and OMOG Musket (Download OMOG Musket and other wargames free here: )
