Great diorama LeStryge!

I've often wondered how/where you find the props?

Many thanks for your comment Daryl!
The props come from always being on the lookout for anything that could pass as 1/6. A lot of charity shop stuff catches my eye.
The cannon I paid way too much for in an "antigue" (?) market, but I just had to have it.
That plus the fact I also make up what's needed for a shot from scratch....i.e. all the cannon tools and the powder package in this case.
Cannon balls are of course suitably sized fishing sinkers.
The result is that I have a HUGE box of assorted stuff I might use one day! lol!

Smee and Djoulol!  Where’s the dog named Boo?

Nice “below decks” feel to the lighting!

Come, cheer up, my lads, 'tis to glory we steer,
To add something new to this wonderful year;
To honour we call you, as freemen not slaves,
For who are so free as the sons of the waves?

Heart of Oak are our ships,
Jolly Tars are our men,
We always are ready: Steady, boys, Steady!
We'll fight and we'll conquer again and again.

Thanks Mark, it was a fun shot to do.
One of the figures that came in a charity shop bagged lot had a missing hand, so rather than just replace it I thought why not go "the hook"!
The eye-patch is a re-purposing of a pair of dark glasses that arrived broken. They were all solid black plastic, (not see-through) so it worked out rather well.

Thank you SCU_HQ, ...no dog I'm afraid. Maybe there should have been a ship's cat though? I've got a bag of those things somewhere but you always seem to think of something you should have added after you've taken the pic. and put it all away.
Smee is of course named after the Peter Pan character and so it just followed that the other bloke had to be Djou to make up the pirate duo.

Excellent setup LeStryge, but I thought your lads could use more firepower! How about a nice 1/6 24 pounder to spice things up and give your opponent some trouble? Here you go: https://www.ebay.com/itm/274522970149

Very glad you liked the pirate set up Miles!
That cannon is a very nice (and highly desirable) piece of artillery, but probably out of reach of most buccaneers who tended to make do with what was on board any ship they captured and then pressed into service as a pirate vessel.
Besides, something THAT heavy could cause serious ballast problems for a small ship, not to mention the massive recoil effects!

It's certainly a highly detailed model and I'd probably even consider buying it because I have long planned to do some US Civil War figures, but the seller won't ship to Australia.
