“Last words, either way”

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

General Armendariz, the brickflick genius pressed into the Classic-Pirates.com crew, has treated us with another oscar-winning motion picture: Shipyard Shenanigans, Episode One: "Last words, either way." It tells the humorous story of a man's last words as his ship crumbles into the sea - but I won't spoil the surprise; be sure to grab some popcorn, turn off the lights, and switch on the show!

You may notice many familiar faces starring in the flick, Captain Zuloo, Mister Phes, and Captain Blackmoor among them. Some viewers may wonder, "What is this Shipyard Shenanigans?" Well, we have the same question for you! Sail by the Classic-Pirates.com forum and tell Armendariz your thoughts and opinions.

And the winner is – wait a second, it isn’t over?!

Piratical Masterpieces

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009
Governor Broadside, by Hound Knight, is only one of numerous works that await you!

Governor Broadside, by Hound Knight, is only one of numerous works that await you!

Eurobricks and the Pirate forum are lucky to have been graced by numerous modern-day da Vinci's, such as Apache, Capt. Kirk, and Hound Knight, and they've been at it again. The three of them have beautifully illustrated Imperial Guards, Pirates, and even the infamous Captain James Hook, the scurvy dog.

Each of these artists have their own unique styles that set them apart: Capt. Kirk skillfully crafts  his work with the computer; Apache mixes the minifigure and human forms in his intricate drawings; and Hound Knight expertly shades with the colored pencil.

Be sure to take a peek at Hound Knight and Apache's historical artwork and Capt. Kirk's 24th Regiment of Foot!

Hardee’s Manual of Arms

Ateennn...tion!

Ateennn...tion!

It's all very well to send your Bluecoats and Redcoats marching off to battle, but any real soldier knows that the only way to win a battle is to be trained and prepared, and the only way to train and prepare your troops for battle is with Hardee's Manual of Arms. And luckily for you, manual-loving Imperial Scouts has provided us with just that!

Learning the many accurately described positions and formations can help you  authentically reproduce various actions in MOCs, BrikWars games, and Brick Flicks alike, so make sure you read the whole of ImperialScouts' Manual of Arms. Then remember to sail by the Discussion Thread and compliment his efforts!

The Battle Rages On…

Friday, August 14th, 2009

Standing on opposite sides of the battlefield, Redcoats and Bluecoats stare at each other, hatred burning in their eyes. An orange fox in pirate attire steps between the two: moderator doubling as a mediator Zorro determines which side goes first. Redcoats begin! Bluecoats begin! All around the Mediterranean, one army raises scaffolding while the other assigns spies. That's right, Pirate fans - the 1st Annual Redcoat VS. Bluecoat Tournament of Retribution is well under way!Tournament of Retibution on Classic-Pirates.comFour skirmishes are currently in progress in the Pirate forum. These are...

Raging Redcoats Regiment vs. Out of the Blue

Courageous Redcoat Company vs. Big Bad Blues

Bloody Brilliant Redcoats vs. Bluecoat Team 3

Ravenous Redcoats vs. Blue Thunder

    Each team has spectacular builders and fantastic entries - but only one side can prevail. As devoted team members work to get in their two vignettes, the tournament judges have the difficult job of choosing the winning side amongst the hordes of notable creations. Twenty creations must be taken into account per thread, each being scored points for build, wit, historical accuracy, and much more. And so far, the judges have been presented with a difficult challenge!

    Part of that challenge, unfortunately, involves finding the entries themselves. Useless spam, cruel insults, and other garbage have been paraded around each tournament thread, and something has to be done about it. There are some comments that are constructive, and others that are not. Try to stop bashing the other side - though at times, it can seem so fun - and provide criticism and compliments that don't insult or upset someone else. We're glad that everyone's having fun, but this is just a game.

    Are some of you in the dark and somehow have no idea what this commotion is? You can learn all about it in the tournament enlistment thread!

    We have a new Pirates Regulator!

    Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

    Erdbeereis is now a Pirates Regulator

    After our Pirate Moderator Phred left because of his work and studies and because of the constant growth of both the forum and Classic-Pirates.com, we decided to appoint a fresh Pirate Regulator to help out Slyowl and the rest of the team.

    Erdbeereis, as Shipyard Master, and because of his dedication and forum knowledge, was just an obvious choice!

    So, head over to the Classic-Pirates.com Forum and welcome Erdbeereis!
