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!

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!

Classic Pirate Minifigures ~ Imperial Soldiers

Sunday, January 1st, 2006

 

Imperial Soldiers were the first men of authority in the LEGO pirate worldImperial Soldier

The Imperial Soldier was the backbone of the imperial forces before the Imperial Guards led by Governor Broadside came into the picture. Like their red counterparts, the Imperial Soldiers wore shakos, some of the most rare LEGO&reg pieces currently on the Bricklink market.

They appeared in the sets 6271 Eldorado Fortress, 6267 Lagoon Lock-up, 6265 Sabre Island, 6273 Rock Island Refuge, 6259 Broadside's Brig, 6270 Forbidden Island and 6251 Pirate Minifigures.

They constantly fought battles with Captain Redbeard, but by the time Ironhook came into the picture, the Imperial Guards had already taken control of the seas. Or so they thought. Captain Redbeard had come back in the last few years of the Classic Pirate line and the Imperial Armada was left to repel him and his pirates. Perhaps the Imperial Soldiers should have returned to tame the pirates...

Classic Pirate Minifigures ~ Lt. de Martinet

Lt. de Martinet

As second in command of the imperial soldiers under Governor Broadside, Lt. de Marinet was constantly kept busy fighting off pirates, in particular Captain Redbeard.

Lt. de  Marinet seemed to be a very adventurous minifig, appearing in many sets including 6258 Broadside's Brig, 6265 Sabre Island, 6267 Lagoon Lockup and 6276 Eldorado Fortress. He was quite a successful leader too, serving under Governor Broadside from 1989 to 1991 when the Soldiers were finally driven out of power by the Imperial Guards led by Admiral Woodhouse.

He was always destined for adventure, and when he was given the flick by the Imperial Guards, he allegedly became a merchant captain of a small trading ship in 6277 Imperial Trading Post as Steve before joining the crew of 6286 Skull's Eye Schooner.
