The lower pack features figures for "dockside" use.
Legless beggar and dog, couple of dunks, lady of the docks and sentry looking the wrong waym as they do.

Martin,
Happy Christmas to you! I have a fair bit of your pirates and like them. Will the rules be focused on larger battles like your western rules or smaller actions such as 30-40 figures per side?

Cheers

Joe

Good to see the new minis.

Would like to know what is "new" and/or changed, in this new release.

Oh, the year was 1778,
How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now,
When a letter of marque came from the King,
To the scummious vessel I ever seen…

Bleeped text them all! I was told,
We'd sail the seas for American gold!
We'd fire no guns, shed no tears,
I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier,
The last of Barrett's privateers!

Are we getting new ships? Any chance of some galleys, schooner and xebecs? :)

More strumpets please.

Thanks for the interest.
Not sure about new ships at the present. Maybe in 2019.
I will do a list of the main changes when the new rules are ready. Fine idea.

Scale of ships 1/250 to 1/350 is best imho.

Ok no problem.
Probably a bit too big physically for the PP POE rules though.
The PP ones are 1/450th and have been around for about 20 years. They were built specifically for pirate and buccaneer actions. That was the scale we found best for these actions with smaller ships.
But wargaming is a broad church, so folk can use any size they like and good luck to them.
