Discuss the Burning of Washington by Ratshot in the Classic-Pirates forums

Can the President escape before it's too late?

The war of 1812, the Americans had attacked the Canadians capital and they were out for revenge. Led by British forces, the Canadian forces attacked Washington DC with little American resistance. Chocked full of action and battle, this is one of the most lively 'Bayonets at Dawn' entries we have seen.

(May 11, 1745)

The Battle of Fontenoy

The date was May the 11th 1745, the canon's start to fire with a fierce authority.  From the Red coats to the Blue coats this MOC tells the story well.  With a great cannonball technique and an impressive army to boot, this Bayonets at Dawn entry is sure to do well.  Entered just in time for the contest!

Siege and Blockade of Yorktown 1781 by KillaGorilla

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

And another great entry came just on time before the deadline. There is so much to see in this MOC that it may take a while to notice all the nice details, such as decapitation, a serious leg wound, an unseated British Lancer, and a bayonet stab. KillaGorilla shows us all the glory and horror of big Napoleonic battles. And for all the ship-fans there is also a big French ship of war in this MOC.

Capture of the Eagle of the 45th by Tanotrooper

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

Between all the big battles and huges armies, there was suddenly an entry in the Bayonets at Dawn contest with less than 10 minifigs. But it's still one of the better entries, and very original. Tanotrooper has made his own unique soldiers and horses with great techniques and details. And he was just on time; the deadline for the contest was may, 31st. So if you still have an entry not posted, you'd better do it fast and hope the best of it! Anyway, Tanotrooper did it on time so you can vote for this awesome creation (or others) within a few days!

Battle of Hagelberg by Aalak

Monday, May 31st, 2010

The Battle of Hagelberg is also known as "The Battle of the (Musket)Butts". That's because it rained all day, the powder was wet and muskets and pistols were of no good use, other than to be used as clubs. Aalak grew up close to the former battlefield so it's a wise choice for him; he probably knows a lot about this battle. He did a great job with many minifigs with custom-made decals and he very clearly shows us the chaos in big battles like this.

French attack on the Pratzen Heights by Michaelozzie

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

Austerlitz, 1805. Austrian an Russian soldiers are on the Pratzen heights. They can't see much through the fog. Suddenly the fog disappears and they see a giant French army! But it's too late already and Napoleon wins this part of the battle.

This is the scene michaelozzie has made with Lego. The soldiers are made with the smallest details and there is a lot of smoke and action in it. It looks very realistic, there's even a soldier who's leg is shot off! This is again an entry you can't miss!
