What is that on the horizon?

What was a sub-project first turned out being a spectacular build! Eurobricks forum member Perfectionist is working on his Achille a few weeks now, and it becomes better every day. One of it's many features is it's incredebly detailed interior! The whole ship is modular, which makes this vessel even more spectacular.

MOC: Malborghet, Vignette based on painting by Woody64

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

Click here to discuss Malborghet a Vignette based on a painting by Woody64 in the Classic-Pirates.com forums

Woody64 has created for us this vignette based off the respective painting. Not only is this accurate top to bottom to the original painting piece of work but also historically, so all you history fans will be pleased. This was also a great opportunity for Woody to show off some of his excellent moulded minifig accessories such has the hats some of the troops are wearing. Woody has also gone to the effort of producing custom torso decals for his men providing a source of inspiration for all the customizers out there. It seems like this vignette has something for everyone!

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!

    The Countdown Begins!

    Thursday, July 30th, 2009

    As of late, the ongoing battle between Redcoat and Bluecoat supporters - a conflict that taken the Pirate Forum by storm since 2005 - has finally met its day of reckoning. That day is tomorrow, July 30: the scheduled starting point of the 1st Annual Redcoat VS. Bluecoat Tournament of Retribution, lead by Commodore Hornbricker and Martin Super. And Classic-Pirates.com is the only place you can tune in to for LIVE coverage of the brawl!

    Tournament of Retibution on Classic-Pirates.com

    Once Tournament Moderator and respected forum Admiral Zorro randomly selects which team will be facing which, each member builds two MOCs that aim to brutally humiliate and disrespect the opposing team. Once each team member has built and posted their two creations, judges will decide which group is the victor by using set criteria, such as which vignettes were the funniest, which creations were the best built, and which people posed the better bribe.

    Want to know more about the rules of the tournament? Go to the enlistment thread to learn all about them!

    Even if you're not participating in the contest, you can still join in the fun. The Redcoat VS. Bluecoat battle is still raging throughout the forum! You can visit the Redcoat VS. Bluecoat thread to slander the other side, and monitor Classic-Pirates.com in the coming days for updates and information about the 1st Annual Redcoat VS. Bluecoat Tournament of Retribution!

    In the hope of us all forgiving him, General Armendariz has posted his real French army. It's actually looking really nice, and he has included 5 blue coated sigfigs too. With 40 men, this army isn't something to spit at, in fact most AFOL armies would be running by now!

    So hurry along to the Pirate forum and discuss General Armendariz's French army to your heart's content!

    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!
