The Return of Admiral B©jaune

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

Admiral B©jaune, previously HMS243, returns in the Pirate forum!

Classic-Pirates.com is pleased to announce the return of an older member who entered his dark ages a while ago. Previously known as HMS243, Admiral B©jaune is not only a great poster who lightens the mood of the Pirate forum, but he is also a master of shipbuilding. With ships such as the Sang Royale in the making, he's soon to have one of the nicest fleets out there!

So let's welcome back Admiral B©jaune, previously HMS243, to the Pirate forum!

6299 Pirates Advent Calender – Pictures found!

Friday, April 24th, 2009

That mean old Mister Phes has gone and removed the image!

It was due to copyright uncertaintity,
so the image may or may not appear again...

Kris Kelvin has produced an amazing piece of news - the 2009 Advent Calender, set 6299, has a Pirate theme! Not suprisingly, as well as a boatload of pirate accessories, the 8 included figures are from various sets in the new Pirates line. This looks like a great calender, and it'll have you counting down the days like never before!

Have a look at Kris Kelvin's source, then discuss the Pirate's Advent Calendar in the Pirates forum!

Dear Classic-Pirates.com readers,

Yes, we know. It's been a long time - too long - since we released an episode of 'Behind The Helm', but all has not been lost. We are working on something special with a highly influencial pirate fan...

Meanwhile, make sure you check out the already released interviews:

Cheers,

Captain Zuloo, 'Behind The Helm' Coordinator

It’s a hoax!

Join the fight against Armendariz and his piratey ways!

Join the fight against Armendariz and his piratey ways!

Just after we had frontpaged what we believed to be the biggest LEGO® Napoleonic army ever created, the stroy behind the hoax was released:

"Ok every one i've decided to tell you probably the most shocking news you've ever heard about armies,
THIS ARMY IS A HOAX
Yes its true, its fake,hoax not real, and never gonna happen.
really do you think some dude sold me 300+ troops for $40? And all of them armed? Not in your life or mine.
its all made up. But im not telling how I did it."

Pictured above is the true redcoat army of forum member General Armendariz.

To ridicule the horrible scoundrel, visit the thread, or see what tricked us all into believeing Armendariz was a truthful person...

Captain’s Cabin Contest!

Friday, February 27th, 2009

 

Yargg, there be loot up for grabs here!

Yargg, there be loot up for grabs here!

Between plundering and pillaging, pirates have to lay their lice-infested heads somewhere! From the lowliest rat-infested bilges that serve as crew's quarters to the luxury of the captain's cabin, there's building scope a-plenty!

Your task is to show this - what goes on there, what it's like - the works!

It doesn't have to be for the captain - crew's quarters, the ship's kitchen, the brig e.t.c. are very welcome.
It can be from any seafaring faction, be they Pirates (Caribbean, Mediterranean, Chinese e.t.c.), Imperials, Merchants, Islanders, even! Fish-pirates, skeleton-pirates, troll-pirates and the like are all acceptable. Borderline steampunk is also allowed, but try to maintain the seafaring aspect.
It doesn't have to be based on a ship. It could be on a wrecked ship, something similar to the Captain's Quarters in the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney, or something from your imagination! Please avoid building it as part of a full ship, as this will exceed the permitted dimensions and may skew votes away from the subject matter.

So quickly, come on over to the Pirate forum to ask some
questions and check out the prizes
!

Well, what are you waiting for? Quickly go and
buy yourself the playing cards, then discuss this find in the Pirate forum!
