Discuss the Burning of Washington by Ratshot in the Classic-Pirates forums

Can the President escape before it's too late?

The war of 1812, the Americans had attacked the Canadians capital and they were out for revenge. Led by British forces, the Canadian forces attacked Washington DC with little American resistance. Chocked full of action and battle, this is one of the most lively ‘Bayonets at Dawn’ entries we have seen.

Grandeur a WIP ship by Captain Zuloo

V3 of the Grandeur is a complete rebuild!

V3 of the Grandeur is a complete rebuild!

The first time Captain Zuloo first showed us his MOC the ‘Grandeur’, a majestic 28-gun frigate, was early last year. From then it has progressed greatly and has gone through many revisions and total restructures. Now nearly all that is left to complete are the masts and the remaining small details that can ‘make or break’ a MOC. I for one will be following this beautiful ship closely now it’s in the final stages of its build. In the latest update Zuloo has really shown us through his progression how much time and effort it takes to pull off one of these great MOC ships.

PTVII: Skeet Club by Ratshot

The first contest, a skeet tournament

The first contest, a skeet tournament

Pirate captains often suffer from ‘Post- war Syndrome’, a long hatred for their enemies. After regular visits to the crazy house the waring captains are given a regime where they are set against each other in a number of contests.  Only time will tell to see if these contests really work out, or if they’ll just increase the tension.

Puerto de la Cruz by Daniel G

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

The crimson red rooftops of Puerto de la Cruz are a welcome sight for any Imperial Soldiers. Decked out with a look out tower and armored fortress this port is a fair force to be reckoned with.

The armored fortress declares the port a fair force to be reckoned with

Daniel G’s large MOC ‘Puerto de la Cruz’ is truly fantastic. The gleaming white buildings are compromised with dashes of yellow and red. Many fine details have been added such as bridges, Pirates and many more.

40 canons of crushing

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.

Woody64 has created for us this vignette based off the respective painting. Not only is this accurate top to bottom to the original painting piece of work but also historically, so all you history fans will be pleased. This was also a great opportunity for Woody to show off some of his excellent moulded minifig accessories such has the hats some of the troops are wearing. Woody has also gone to the effort of producing custom torso decals for his men providing a source of inspiration for all the customizers out there. It seems like this vignette has something for everyone!
