The introduction of Age of Sigmar
has gotten me very interested in expanding my pirate forces into individual armies.
As a little background, I played a pirate-themed Dogs of War for many years and added an assortment of scurvy characters from across the warhammer range. Some of these (Empire, Ogres, and Vampire Counts) became full-fledged pirate armies. Others (Dwarves, Dark Elves, and High Elves) were never much more than single units. I also added a good number of ships and other pirate-themed terrain to go with them.
The small skirmish battles of AoS are perfect for taking some of these and making them into small armies of their own. I'm shooting for lists of around 50 points that I can use for demo games, etc. Since I'm currently living and working overseas, at the moment this consists of making some small purchases on ebay or bartertown and working out some lists on paper. I'd like to share the progress of the project here.
Here is an image to illustrate what models and terrain this project is starting with, my combined ogres and empire armies:
