Rebel minis if you haven't heard of them, together with Khurasan Miniatures, made 15mm cool for non historical folks. It's as simple as that. They've done 15mm zombies, insurgents, Cthulhu cultists, you name it.

A few years ago they came out with some 15mm ninjas:

and I have been waiting patiently ever since for their latest release -- 15mm pirates.

They've got jaunty pirate command sorts too; sea witches; red-coat pirate hunters; undead pirates; and even a mermaid. Outside of the immediate awesomeness, one must consider the potential for low cost, 15mm, pirates vs ninja conflict.

We had tried to do a pirates versus ninja set before, but the costing in 28mm was prohibitive. With these, I think we can do set of 7 ninjas and 7 pirates, pre-painted and with shipping globally, for $35. Not cheap, but if I can throw in a simple rules booklet and maybe a couple of terrain pieces, it becomes a good offer.

So we ordered some ninjas and pirates, they're in the studio now. If I can get them ready and take some nice photos of them in time, Ninja vs Pirates the Wargame will make the next newsletter!

We've set up a Youtube channel, thanks to the power of Windows Movie Maker (thanks Bill!).

Suraj's insane camera angles, while not always what works best for review photos, are perfect for video it turns out. Here is some Dreadfleet we did, you can see how his mad touch works.

Here's our Youtube Channel:

Only a few up so far, but we're adding more.  If you've read this far, then you deserve to see this travesty. It's me and my friend Sootch doing our version of "Haben sie Gehort das Deutsche Band," from the Mel Brook musical comedy adaptation of "The Producers."
