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!

The Eternal WIP: a huge diorama in LCAD, by RoVer

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.

Army in a letter case by Woody64

Click to disucss Woody64s Army in a letter case in the Classic-Pirates.com forum

A mighty army indeed

Woody64, a true connoisseur of customs and army-building,  has housed his mighty army within a neat black letter case, allowing it to be displayed in a notable and clever fashion. All his men are armed to the brim with swords and guns, ready to take on any opposing naval force. The army is completely unique, from the decals to the hats. It would be near impossible to recreate the multitude of colours and designs seen on display.

Fort Brighton East by ZCerberus

Saturday, April 18th, 2009
Three years ago, ZCerberus presented his extensive Fort Brighton, a MOC that had previously been shown in WIP form. Since then, he has become one of the Pirate forum's most celebrated MOCers, posting numerous wondeful creations spanning a wide variety of themes. It is now, after a long period of inactivity, ZCerberus has returned with his latest, and easily most spectacular, exploit: a complete makeover of his original Fort Brighton!

ZCerberus has done multiple rebuilds, but none as comprehensive as this. Not only has he trippled the size and changed the colors of the buildings, but this new fort, which is only the east end of the keep, is even larger than the entire original! Other new features, such as underground caves, stained-glass windows, and new tiled roofs, are abundant in the MOC, as well as a few scattered goodies - can you spot them?

Discuss the ongoing project in the Pirate forum!
