even though all my armies take a futuristic theme, the pirate sets were some of the best buys i made.
like the ship hulls? sure, it's SUPPOSED to be wood. but why not just say it's brown steel, and then place some gray bits, an engine, and some big-assed guns on the main deck? 's what i did.
speaking of guns, the ship masts make EXCELLENT cannons.
speaking of masts, sails that came with them are perfect for use as canvas roofs of rogue communities etc.
