They are very well sculpted. I cant read the site though, its in German and I cant see if there is any translate button.

If they are 28mm then the artist/s are really skilled. The Pirate females and small pirate goblins look really good.

I don't know how big they are, but if you look on the left below the links to the shop and gallerie there are small flags to change the language in english

Edit: when I clicked the english flag the first line read: Freebooter Miniatures is a small range of 30 mm metal-miniatures.... so they are 30mm.

Freebooter minis are the work of Werner Klocke. They're BEAUTIFUL little pieces & fairly compatible in size to Citadel...they're also VERY expensive.
There are lots of Pirate minis available by companies like Bronze Age, Reaper (some of Reaper's are done be Werner K.), Ron & Bones (a little taller than G.W.). Putting up links would really depend on where you live: i.e., there isn't much point in posting a link to a site in the US if you're in Europe or Australia; SO ...where in the World are you? What a Face

Another little thing that virtually all the Pirate minis have in common is that they're style of dress is from the wrong century in comparison to the Mordheim look. Suspect

For pirates I would still recommend black scorpion mini's. Beautiful sculpt and they have both male and female pirates. Also, check out their undead/orc/dwarf pirates!

The Black Scorpion pirates are pretty nice. For the longest time I've been trying to decide between those or the Bronze Age Miniatures Female Pirates. I just wish I could see the Bronze Age minis up next to some GW minis to get an idea of how they fit.

Rackham used to make some beautifull gobo pirates but these are kinda hard to find:

For translate, I type in the basic URL of the site, and there's a "translate this..." option on my search results...
