Give 'im a lick o' the cat!




Arrr. In case ye did not know it, today be International Talk Like a Pirate Day, so please use every chance to use phrases such as "that it be" and "aye cap'n", with lots of "Arrr"s spread around.


Well, it was a good excuse to spice up the blog with a photo of good old Johnny Depp. Isn't he great?








By amazing coincidence, a friend of mine has just received a load of Pirate figures for playing wargames with. Here is a photo of one of them.


Not as sexy as Johnny, of course, but still rather good. Can't wait to get a game with these little guys - we have even been promised a rum ration while we play - can't argue with that!

Errr, Thanks for stopping by my blog Matey!

I'll play almost any game that includes rum. Will Johnny Depp be there, though? That would seal the deal.

Logziella said...

Eye, eye Matey!

Mmmm. . . . Rummmmm. . . .

Mmmm. . . . Johnny Depp. . . .

I didn't know that today was International Talk Like a Pirate Day? I was wondering why a few of the blogs I read had loads of "matey", "rum", "wenches" and "grog" references. Thanks for 'splaining.

I see you leaving some great, kind and funny comments on Mindy's (in Minneapolis) and Princess' (in Winnepeg) sites so I thought I'd come visit.

I'll spend some time perusing. Hope you don't mind. Happy ITLPD!

One pic of Johnny Depp and 6 women turn up! ;-)

Ali - Glad you like Johnny - mind you I don't think I know a woman who does NOT like him!

Jahooni - No problem. I will be back!

Mindy - no, Johnny will not be there, sadly. I could do the eyeliner,though, if that would help?

Logzie - that is the cool thing about pirates, you can roll out the cliches and everyone loves it!

Terri - Dodgeball must be one of my top 10 movies. Ah, a woman that can quote from Dodgeball...

Jen - great to see you. Hope you like what you find and come back again.

Aaarr, that do be rather amazing that all the fair pirate wenches be gathering around thy 'focsle at the sight of Blackhearted Johnny on the horizon.

Some good 28mm pirates on the market now is that an old Foundry figure?

Rock Chef said...

I think the figure is from a new range which I can't remember the name of. Will let you know soon!

Rock Chef said...

I stand corrected - he is Foundary. Steve has also got some Black Scorpion ones which is why I was confused.

I believe eyeliner for men is now called "guyliner". Keep up, will ya?!
