Something different is this fantastic range of Sanderson Pirates and wenches produced by John Eden Studios (Rose Miniatures) in the UK.
Sanderson figures are really full of life, a joy to paint and are ideal for small scenes, large dioramas or one off models. Although some may consider them a little 'crude' for display amongst their toy soldier collections these particular models have been around for many years and still sell extraordinarily well.
All John's models are available painted or as castings/kits.
