Pirate Blackbeard

Hi friends.
This is my version of the pirate Blackbeard. The figure is white metal and parts (body, arms, head, hat and pistols). The comments are welcome.

That figure is very worthy of paint,and brushed on colour perhaps along with a quick story of that Large fearsome fellow who wore lighted fuses trailing from his hat and beard.

The illustration above published in 1736

Image


A British ship built in 1710,but captured by the French in 1711,
a black hearted ship used by them as a Slaver.

Taken as a Prise by Pirates in 1717.
Then with those infamous black chains thrown overboard,and with many a mighty gun well fit for black powder ball and rusty shot installed,She was now converted to be a fast running Frigate,and renamed THE DUEEN ANNE`S REVENGE. Blackbeards Ship.
Which certainly was a great surprise for The Royal Navy!
I have written many a jot down in connection with Edward Teach, and his ship,
and far to many to site a shot down here,
But I admire your rendition of Blackbeard. :thumbup: Very much BB
