Has anyone else tried to use the Crown knights as colonists in the pirate era? You can see some pictures of mine here. I´m sorry for picture quality, I took them with my cell phone.

Seems the Brickshelf folder is not yet moderated.

You can always post deeplinks (more info here).

I tried to deeplink, but...

You can post the deeplink as a regular link, and the board will accept it, just use the 'Insert Link' icon next to 'Insert Image'.

What format are the pictures?

I must admit, I'm very curious what you're using Crownies for.

They're BMPs and should really be converted to JPGs so they can be posted straight into the forum.

Grakul I recommend you read the Batch Image Resize Tutorial and learn how to convert your images to JPGs so you can post them straight into the thread. Phred has kindly done it for you this time, but in the future please learn to do it yourself.

Threads with pictures get more attention than those with no pictures.

The folder has been moderated! :thumbup:

Also, i changed your main picture into a *.png file instead of *.bmp.

I think that's what the trouble may be. :pir-blush:

I've used Black Falcon torsos in one of my pirate mocs and i liked the way it look too. :pir-classic:

are you able to get some clearer pics?

My problems are that I´m using a cell phone for my pictures, so they don´t turn out very good, and I haven´t got a computer with Internet access so I have to do everything from a public library computer (which logs itself out automatically after 10 minutes).

Well that certainly is a limitation but you've done well to get this far!

How come the computer logs itself out automatically after 10 minutes though? That seems a bit unreasonable, is this intentional or have the library computers got bugs?

Mr. Grakul,

I've been thinking about using crownies as crew in my next MOC.

The ship is based off steampunk styling, but still has only sailing power.

Thanx for the idea :thumbup:

Well, it could be Gremlins. They originated from the Kremlin according to bugs bunny cartoons.

Perhaps there is still and infestation in Sweden. :pir-laugh:

This seems like a perfectly reasonable explanation so far. :thumbup:

The computer is meant to be used for quick things, such as checking your e-mail. I can of course log in again once the ten minutes have expired, but it´s pretty annoying.

But back on subject, I recently bought some castle trolls, and I think their bodies can be used for pirates if you give them yellow hands. And the dwarf beards will look great on captains and marooned sailors.

Yes. I often use castle torsos for pirate minifigs if that's what you mean. And I'm glad you got that image thing sorted out.

Regards, Captain Zuloo :pir-laugh:

Holy Spears!

Those will definitely keep away borders! :thumbup:

It's a nice little ship.

Could use a "smoother" transition from the center portion of the ship to the stern. :pir-blush:

I like the coloring though.

Do some of your crewmen have viking torso?

BTW Grakul:

Feel free to post more pics of your MOCs when you post them. :pir-grin:

You'll get comments that way.

Kinda like these:

sentinel03.jpg

I mean look at the Figurehead. That thing's awesome!

Lets take a look at the stern:

sentinel07.jpgsentinel02.jpg

and as you can see, with the smaller pics, you can post two per rows. :thumbup:

Oh, and also:

I've added this ship to the Index of MOC Ships!

The torsos are all from Crownies. I´m planning for a battle between these guys and some pirates soon, using the Brickbattles game system. I´ll report it in the Wargames forum.

I think this is a brilliant idea!

These torso's are very convincing when combined with a tricorn or such a Spanish helmet (what's it called?).

This makes me wanna buy some more of those little impulse sets and make me a small crew of these.
