Reaper Bones review #163: Barnabus Frost, Pirate Captain

Barnabus Frost, Pirate Captain


Good pirate captain sculpts are hard to find. There's plenty of tricorner hat-wearing, peg-legged, one-eyed pirates of course, but that's more a parody of a pirate. Bobby Jackson's Barnabus Frost breaks the mold by uniquely looking the part.

Painted and unpainted.

At first glance I thought Barnbaus was a dwarf, but he isn't -- he's just a bald guy with a beard. He has the usual cutlass, and is kitted out in a captain's coat, flintlock pistol, compass, and buckles and sashes everywhere. He looks like he knows his way around a ship. An excellent sculpt for any sea captain. You can purchase this miniature at Amazon.
