Friday, August 6th, 2010

Armybuilder and MOC expert ImperialScouts had a stand at Brickworld 2010 and brought two MOCs with him. Due to the fact I was quite impressed by them, I could not resist making a small overview of them.

First we have one of  his masterpieces called The Battle of Willow's Creek:

New Classic-Pirates contest: Bayonets at Dawn!

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010
Click to participate into Bayonets at Dawn, a Pirate LEGO contest hosted by Classic-Pirates.com and Eurobricks!

Click the picture to see what beautifull bounty you can win!

Armies are on the war-path - from Blenheim to Bunker Hill to Balaclava, Leipzig to Lissa, Wagram to Waterloo, powder is readied, and sabres polished. And it's war - and a very unhealthy trade!

Your task is to build a battle scene, based on an actual battle, as realistically as possible. The battle should have taken place between 1450 and 1880, including Spanish Conquest in the Americas and American Civil War (but hence excluding the Boer War). Pre-1450 battles in the Americas (eg. Mayan, Inca) are also allowed, as they fit the general genre, but not medieval battles of the same era (eg. knights on horseback). All "factions" are allowed. Naturally, fantasy elements are not permissible. Any queries, just ask.

Need inspiration? Check out the MOC Indexes - in particular the Land-based MOCs - a wealth of ideas and techniques to explore.

  1. The contest will run from NOW (posting time of this message!) untill May 31 2010!
  2. One entry per member; only new MOCs
  3. You must include a short description or link to evidence of the actual battle; paintings, Wikipedia etc.
  4. Full customization is allowed, including decals, string, sails, 3rd party customs (e.g. Brickarms, Brickforge). Cutting and painting are permissible, but as the contest is judged by public vote, these may not be popular. We suggest visiting The Great Pirate Torso Library and the Sail Library Resource.
  5. No clone brands or digital entries
  6. No size or minifig limit
  7. Post 6 pictures (maximum size 800x600). You can link to an external gallery, where there are no image limitations. See these tutorials for help with resizing images and deeplinking.
  8. Important: Each entry will be posted in its own thread, like you would with a normal MOC. All entry threads are to be created in the LEGO Pirates MOCs Forum. The thread title should be the title of the ENTRY. The description of the entry thread should be "Bayonets at Dawn Contest Entry".
  9. Judging will take place by a public vote. Each person can pick their top 3 entries. This will happen by posting, not by voting in a poll.

Prizes, you say? Obviously there are prizes! Click the link below or the picture above to see them!

French Navy Xebec, By Bonaparte

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010

Classic-Pirates.com Ambassador Bonaparte shows off his skills again with this incredible piece of work: a French Navy Xebec!

French Navy Xebec, a ship MOC by Bonaparte

A Mediterranean Xebec

Xebecs were used in the Mediterranean by French corsairs mainly for quick interception and getaway. The corsairs favored the xebec for its speed and maneuverability, and for its shallow draft which also aided in escaping larger vessels. These qualities were recognized by many of the European navies, and the vessel was quickly adopted into the Mediterranean squadrons as commerce-raiders and anti-piracy cruisers.
