LOTHS: Zany Pirates - Game #2
  In the club's 2nd effort at the "Zany Pirate Rules" members prepare to sail back and forth between various minuscule islands whilst pounding away at each other with various miniscule canon.   g080605a.jpg
 
  Meanwhile, on another portion of the table, two other members embark on the bar room brawl scenario. Someone appears to be running a crew of Chinese pirates. Thus answering the question "Where did all those figures go after the last Boxer Rebellion game.   g080605b.jpg
 
  The club's largest ship model. Although, several times longer than ships are supposed to be in the game. So members engage in the, rather odd, process of reminding each other that, "You can sail through any part of the vessel behind the 2nd mast as if it's not there, because game ships aren't supposed to be this long." To the rear are two spectacular Chinese junks.   g080605c.jpg
 
  A close up of the two Chinese junks. These are resin kits, and are the correct length, and have the correct number of canon for the rules set.   g080605d.jpg
 
  A close up of Col. Winky's all girl pirate crew.   g080605e.jpg
 
  A close up of 'the best ship in the fleet.' It's just the right size for the rules. OK, perhaps just a hair too long. And has sufficient deck space to manouver 28mm figures. Originaly part of a Milton Bradley board game that contained some row boats, palm trees, and two of these plastic ships for use in the 'Repel Boarders' portion of the game.   g080605f.jpg
 
  A full length view of the Milton Bradley, board game pirate ship. And no conversion work what so ever. Straight out of the box and simply painted.   g080605g.jpg
