So a question goes out to you modelling folk out there, what models in the GW line would make the great base for a Pirate warband.

The models have to be GW (ive looked at reaper, warmachine, etc size differences are a pain) since Im really picky about height and continuity.

So far the Empire Free Company seems like the best basis. and that Sartosan Pirate Captain (although I much rather convert up my own captain)

Any suggestions? especially for female pirates?

Im decent with green stuff, but not good enough to sculpt limbs or heads, etc.

thanks!

Hey! The Free Company is a very good start, along with the handgunner and pistolier boxes (lots of guns!). I've used mainly these for my pirates (see link in signature), alongside some individual bits from other Empire boxes and a few unique models.

For female pirates, it's gonna be a little more diffcult (as with everything you want to make female in Warhammer), but Dark Eldar witches, Wood Elf Glade Guard and to some extent Witch Elves might be an option here.

Might have to go to Reaper minis to do a female pirate band.

Bronze Age has a nice little range of Pirate Babes. I have all the Lasses in my Rogues Gallery here:

The only female Citadel mini I know that would make a nice pirate is Marianna Chevaux, though you might only get her off of e-bay anymore:
