Marshal Ney’s VI Corps 1805 by michaelozzie

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

Beautifully Done!

I love a good Napoleonic army builder and michaelozzie has delivered 3 regiments fighting under Marshal Ney in 1805.  The figures have great detail and the custom pieces (some from woody64) look fantastic- michaelozzie even gives us a little history lesson on his choices for the regiment details!

Read your history book then discuss Marshal Ney's VI Corps in the forum!

LEGO Pirate Gallus MOC Corioso

This is your Imperial Flagship on steriods

After a 6 month time investment, Eurobricks' member Corioso brings us a ship-of-the-line named Gallus.  Corioso mixed many modern colors and parts with some old school blue coat soldiers to produce this super ship.  When perusing the finer details, be sure to check out the custom cannons, custom lanterns and the special guest serving as figurehead!

Round up your blue coat soldiers, then discuss Gallus in the forum.

Set sail for Brickworld!

Proving that two heads are better than one, Eurobrick members Rufus and Pandora have collaborated to build a replica of Sir Francis Drake's ship, The Golden Hinde.  Highlights include the color choices, the excellent shaping using both pre-fabricated hulls and bricks, the custom made sails, the functional custom rigging, the brick-built sea life, the tiled deck and the dramatic stern with many excellent details.  If you want to see this beauty in person, Rufus and Pandora say it will be making an appearance at Brickworld Chicago in less than a month!

LEGO Pirate Recoiling Cannon MOC Sebeus Iniwum

Technic elements have a new home!

We have been blessed with many beautiful ship models over the years on Classic-Pirates.com, and now our forum is starting to see some awesome "functional" designs from our members.  Sebeus Iniwum strikes again with these recoiling cannons using technic springs and beams to create the realistic looking action.  Head to the forum to check out a video (complete with sound!) of the firing action!

Flying Dutchman CUUSOO by Sebeus Iniwum

LEGO Pirate CUUSOO Flying Dutchman Sebeus Iniwum

Can WE taste the triple guns?

LEGO has released a version of the Black Pearl and the Queen Anne's Revenge but no Flying Dutchman.  With LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean™ seemingly on its way out, it appears we may never get a Flying Dutchman and there is nothing we can do about that.  Or is there?  Not long ago Eurobricks' member Sebeus Iniwum showed off his version of the Flying Dutchman and now his project is on CUUSOO.  If you have not heard about CUUSOO, it is a site where LEGO fans can post their ideas.  If an idea gets 10,000 supporters it will be reviewed by LEGO for a chance to become an official LEGO product!  If you want a Flying Dutchman, support his project on CUUSOO.

Go vote on CUUSOO and be sure to discuss the Flying Dutchman or the status of LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean in the forum now.

LEGO Pirate Shine on Little Lighthouse MOC Walt

This little lighthouse of mine, I'm going to let it shine!

Classic-Pirates.com's own new blogger Walt shows he can do more than write articles with this beautiful lighthouse.  If you don't fall in love with the gorgeous water, great rock technique or awesome working light tower, maybe you will fall in love with the details like an adorable sandcastle, creative brick-built birds or the excellent mini black ship model.  Welcome to Classic-Pirates Walt!

Watch the coastline, then discuss Shine on Little Lighthouse in the forum.

Lego Pirate Sailing Ships Tutorial Horry

Reference nerd nirvana!

Have you ever wanted to build a frigate or a man-of-war but just didn't know where to start?  Eurobricks' tutorial master Horry has your back.  Horry's tutorial starts by giving some good guidelines on proper dimension and design for a sailing vessel, and then gets into deeper thought on things like how to rig gunports, rudders and davits or where to place a ship's stairs or capstans.  If you have been afraid to take the plunge into ship MOCing before, take a look at Horry's tutorial and proceed with confidence!

Study the blueprints then discuss Sailing Ships Tutorial in the forum.
