One of the things I have always wanted for pirate games were some government troops to pitch them against. Today North Star have revealed a marine for their forthcoming pirate range but I'm not sure what to think, frankly. They don't say that he is a Royal Marine and the period around 1700 is not one I know very well but I have never seen a hat like this before! It is very strange! the rest of the figure looks good but the hat? Really not sure!
