Hardee’s Manual of Arms

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!

    Saturday, June 13th, 2009

    RoVer created this massive diorama MOC in LCAD. It is a large Imperial base with a small town in the back, protected by many cannons and soldiers that constantly patrol its borders.

    One, two, three, four...right turn!

    This picture clearly shows the potential of LCAD, that has nearly infinite parts (in contrast to LDD). RoVer promised to continue the work on this WIP/MOC as soon as he graduates from University!

    Come on over to the Classic Pirates forum to discuss this magnificent LCAD MOC.

    Washed Shako by Jalkow

    Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

    As you may or may not already know Imperial Soldiers have routine inspections to check up on their standard of uniform. Coming up was one of these 'inspections' and the Soldier desperately needed to wash his kit. So it was off to the launderette for him. Unfortunately for him he managed to leave his Shako behind. When he returned to his horror he had found it had been pinched and emblem rubbed clean off. How would he explain this to the Drill Sarge?

    Will he get away with this shiny clean Shako?

    Will he get away with this shiny clean Shako?

    Jalkow had not only created a realistic washing machine but also a funny vignette for us to enjoy. The SNOT flooring looks great and lifelike. And finally not forgetting the very innocent looking grandma that tops off the this impressive scene.

    Go and check out Washed Shako by Jalkow for yourself in the pirate forum!

    The Fire Hornet by Derfel Cardarn

    Saturday, May 9th, 2009

    Gilded in gold and home to mighty black masts, the Fire Hornet is a ship to be proud of. The ship is housed at Port Gaverne ready to defend against Pirate attacks and and other scallywags who may threaten the docks laden with cargo being prepared for shipping.

    Unfurl the sails!

    Derfel Cardarn, primarily a Pirate theme builder created The Fire Hornet, a mighty ship brimming with munitions and ready to fight. The ship defends the port of his own creation, Port Gaverne. Although the sails are brick built, they have an excellent furled look which is a beautiful detail.
