The Governor needs new sailors. He therefore decided to launch a major recruitment operation! Eurobricks member 74Louloute has been working on an awesome creation, based on historical facts. He makes it very clear why the press gang is called 'PRESS gang'. Being pressed into the crew! His creation is both funny and ingenious!
Down in the Redcoats mine resides a team of hard working miners. Every now and then the Red Coats on duty have to haul up the minerals dug out by their workers and get them sent off the the governor. However most of the time they are just slacking and lazing around above the toiling mine shaft. And what's this? A skeleton of a Spaniard!How did he get down there?

L'Archiveur a mighty 'Man o' War'. Once when navigating down the treacherous Eldorado River she was attacked and taken over by the French, could it pirates? Sporting a full 40 guns spread across the ships 3 decks. Ingmar's attention to deatil has excelled for him on this ship. It features a consistent recognisable colour scheme to enjoy as well as plenty of rigging that swamp the masts and sails for realistic effect. At it's bow a majestic figure head spouts from a trail of golden guilding at her stern a ornately decorated aft section can be found.
No matter how awesome this ship maybe the inspiration came from somewhere. In this instance it was out very own Classic-Pirates.com. Member Captain Green Hair also know as CGH recently created a wonderful tutorial showcasing the process of building a master class ship. It was a derivation of this tutorial that inspired Ingmar to create this marvellous vessel.

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!
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!Four skirmishes are currently in progress in the Pirate forum. These are...
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!
