Jacobite Officer by Hound Knight on Classic-Pirates.com

Many a history in LEGO® bricks fan has at one point in time wanted to see a Scottish millitary faction, but sadly, there has never been one. Have no fear, Hound Knight is here! Inspired by the book Kidnapped by R. L. Stevenson, this custom minifig is a wonderful little guy, and it would be great to see an army of them. But all armies must start with something!

Come and offer feedback and discuss Jacobite Officer by Hound Knight in the Pirates forum!

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!

Brickforge Scourge

Saturday, June 20th, 2009

Once again, Brickforge Apprentice Houndblower brings us news of an upcoming product, premiering at Brickworld this weekend. A scourge, or many-thonged whip, is another unsolved problem for MOCers - to use the official LEGO whip, be it unrealistic with the hooped end, or go with a custom string assembly? The recent Indiana Jones whip provided a solution, but its curled-up nature proved problematic for action posing. Now Imperials can flog unworthy recruits, and pirates torture their prisoners, all in true Brickforge style.

Upcoming Brickforge Products

Monday, June 15th, 2009

Houndblower brings us news of the new Brickforge prodcuts that will be debuting at Brickworld later this week. Amongst them are a set of reins, a gunbelt and a surcoat with a sword-loop.

The reins are a great add-on for the commanders of the great armies of the Pirate Forum - you need no longer worry about elastic bands or string to control your horse! Furthermore, as the reins fit over both types of horse head armour, we could be seeing some heavily-armed mounted troops in the near future too. Other uses will be sure to turn up too - a hangman's noose, anyone?

The surcoats also solve a dilemma for MOCers, who used to have to choose between a minifig neck bracket and 1x1 clip or an elastic band to hold their troops' cutlasses in place.

If those aren't to your taste, then the gunbelt provides a less bulky alternative, without the leg-flaps. Pistols, knives and scimitars should all find their place on minifigs' hips, perhaps with a little modification, if necessary.

Jasbrick shares his new British soldier in the Pirate forum!

Jasbrick shares his new British soldier in the Pirate forum!

Although it's not often that LEGO® custom minifig torsos are hand painted, but rather printed from a digital image, when the necessary care and time is put into a hand painted minifig, the results can be tremendous! Just look at this custom British 95th Rifles soldier - beautiful in every way. This custom even has painting on the uniform arms!

So if you want to find out more about this stunning creation, or just wish to congratulate Jasbrick on his amazing work, sail on over to the Piate forum to discuss this 95th British Rifles custom!
