Well i've gone against Hinckley's wishes and decided to post this ship here. :pir-tongue:

*Gets tounge back into mouth before getting whacked on the face*

I've decided to have this as a pirate ship with some design influences of steampunk.

But it's pretty much still all sail era stuff and no steam engine. :pir-grin:

Hinckley's steampunk ship was a large influence from the style of ship that i've built here.

For some reason i can't load any pics from my computer onto my photobucket folder, :pir-hmpf_bad:

so i don't have all my pics loaded so far maj.com.

Well here's what i've got uploaded.

I'll post more later today when i have time.

No one knows the origins of this strange ship.

It's made of strange metals, and its design is bizarr compared to other ships.

Here are some closeups of the stern:

The Bow with a Gatling Cannon:

Here's a quick view of the Larboard side:

Just like ZCerberus does, i wanted to make something for fun and not go for realism, but for cool looking. :pir-grin:

Whacha think?

I like the Side of the Ship but the Flag is Random :pir-tongue:

Thats a New Flag for the section thing?

Brilliant Gattling Gun, Mabye you could take a Clear Picture of it alone so I could see how its made?

Good! :thumbup:

An interesting ship.... and beside the use of grey parts, some strange but nice ornaments and that cool Gatling gun it rather

looks like a solid sailing ship indeed. A neat work, I like especially these great sails and the distinct rigging. The gun portsĀ“re

very fine too and the original crew fits in very well. :thumbup:

I wonder what goes round in that head of yours! :pir-tongue:

This has to be the most unrealistic but cool looking ship on the boards.

It totally doesn't make sense at all.. but yet it does. :pir-grin:

About your "crew", are you giving the Eurobricks members a guided tour or have you just been boarded?

Great achievement, Phredder! :thumbup:

Nice ship! :pir-sweet:

It's true this "apocaliptic" look and the colours make it a bit weird but looking closely you can appreciate there's a cool design with a lot of great details, like the lights on the back, the gattling gun and, of course, those amazing white sails! :pir-wink:

By the way, may I be part of one of your crews someday? LOL :pir-tongue:

Thanx for the compliments guys. :blush:

I had always wanted to use all my Exo-Force robot arms for something piratey. :pir-sweet:

It's the same flag that Col. Whipsitck graciously made for me in the Col.'s Personalized flags thread it's filed away in Library of Pirate Era Flags.

Brilliant Gattling Gun, Mabye you could take a Clear Picture of it alone so I could see how its made?

I can do that Joey, but the soonest i'm able to is Monday evening if i have time.

It's final Exams week in college. :pir_wacko:

An interesting ship.... and beside the use of grey parts,

Thanx for the compliments.

Well then you won't like that much of the inner decking of the ship is dark Bley. :pir-laugh:

Unfortunately the Constitution is hogging almost all the other colors of plates that would work much better. :pir-hmpf_bad:

I wonder what goes round in that head of yours! :pir-tongue:

I don't even know most of the time. :pir-grin:

About your "crew", are you giving the Eurobricks members a guided tour or have you just been boarded?

LOL! :pir-laugh:

Those are all the crew, except one passenger.

You'll see pics of the crew below. :pir-wink:

By the way, may I be part of one of your crews someday? LOL :pir-tongue:

Sure thing! As soon as i find your sif-fig head at a B-L store i'm shopping at. :thumbup:

It took me forever to get Hinckley's though.

To the point where i just went to a store that had the Hagrid face and then the most bricks i needed for the constitution. :imperialguard_commander1:

And now a commercial break for our sponsors.

Want to win some sweet piratey prizes?

Pirate collection a little low?

Well then pirates and wenches...

Take part in the "Pirate's Life" contest.

Where the prizes are real and piratey!

You don't have long to post your entries,

SO GET BUILDING!

Well i've gone against Hinckley's wishes and decided to post this ship here. :pir-tongue:

Well why wouldn't you? It doesn't look Steampunkish enough not to be posted here :pir-grin:

Oooo! I did a double negative!

Alright, back from the Break

Well why wouldn't you? It doesn't look Steampunkish enough not to be posted here :pir-grin:

Oooo! I did a double negative!

This ship was far from complete and i showed it to Hinckley and Cap'n Green Hair when it was half complete. :pir-grin:

So here are some more pics and a little more description as to what the puke is going on with this ship.

Since the "Pimp Your IMTP Ship" contest.

I thought The Blade was a little small for my liking. :pir-blush:

I wanted to make something bigger and started on a Galleon,

which was looking pretty cool until i realized that i'd needed some (err a lot) of the bricks to continue construction on the Constitution.

Therefore i want for totally not realistic, and tada!

Ok, fine. Here are some more pics. :pir-tongue:

I worked on the captain's cabin much more than i usually did.

It has all the bare necessities: a desk, a bed, a weapons rack (stole the idea from a new Indy set :pir-wink: ), and of course an aethershreiber. :thumbup: :

atlantis-captainscabin.png

atlantis-captainscabin2.png

There are only 4 nine-pound long guns and one gatling cannon.

It may not be much, but it's very lethal against ppl on the opposing ships,

and not lethal to ships. :pir-laugh:

Perfect piratey weapons.

Here's the gun deck:

atlantis-gundeck.png

Here's a pic of the Crowsnest:

atlantis-crowsnest.png

I like not using those hexagon crowsnest that TLG makes. :pir-blush:

And now the crew!

atlantis-crew1.png

Here are three Rodeleros and Three Pikemen.

I got the idea to try out the Crownie torsos from Grakul's Crown Colonists.

Mr. Phes, Bonaparte, Mr. Tiber, Dr. S., ExoBuilder, and Staudie.

atlantis-crew2.png

Here's the main gun crew.

Evil Willy, Stick, Jim (he's half Japanese), Hinckley, and Jocko.

atlantis-crew3.png

Here are the Riflemen/woman.

My wife, Sting, IS, ZCerberus.

atlantis-crew4.png

And finally the others,

The strange passenger that claims to be an Owl, but looks like a skeleton.

Darin, Pastor Mike, and some other guy (i think he's the captain).

You've got a fantastic crew on this ship, very colorful guys :pir-classic:.

And I love the name of the ship. I'm one of those guys that read all kind of stuff about Atlantis and try to find out what's myth and what's real. Anyway, what am I talking about?

I think this ship looks rather realistic still.

What mission are they on?

Thanx B!

[Off-topic]

I'm one of those guys that read all kind of stuff about Atlantis and try to find out what's myth and what's real. Anyway, what am I talking about?

I like to believe that the mythical Atlantis described is actually the catastrophic collapse of the Minoan Civilization.

Some archaeologists speculate that the capital city of the Minoan was on the Island of Thera (now Santorini), which is a volcano.

The explosive eruption of this volcano destroyed the entire city around 1500 BC and caused a tsunami to destroy all the other coastal cities of the Minoan civilization.

Hence, the civilization sank into the ocean. :pir-wink:[/Off-topic]

That's what i think happened.

I think this ship looks rather realistic still.

What mission are they on?

I don't know, but i have 3 months to figure it out until i get back to my lego bricks in september. :pir-grin:

First off let me apologize to myself and staff for double posting here. :pir-cry_sad:

I've got a good reason for this. :pir-blush:

I wanted to be sure Joey Lock saw my gatling gun up close. :pir-grin:

Anywayz.

I'm not too good and showing stuff off, but i know Imperial Shadows is.

So take it away IS.

IS: Why thank you Phred.

Joey, it appears that you'd like a close up of Phred's gatling gun.

Well, here it is!

gatling1.jpg

IS: Here's a nice side view...

...Okay then lets go check out the front of th-

Stauder: Hey Shadows sorry i'm late.

gatling2.jpg

IS: Why are you here?!? :pir-hmpf_bad:

Stauder: You said you needed help with something. :pir-look:

IS: Fine, fine. Just stand over there. I'm busy right now. :imperialguard_commander1:

Where was I? Oh yeah, the gatling gun...

gatling3.jpg

IS:...we'll just swing 'er 'round here.

Now here we have the fully functional hand crank to operate th-

Stauder:Can I- :pir-oh3:

IS: No! :pir_mad:

Hey Jocko and Hinck.

:pir-hmpf_bad:

GUYS! Can you hold this please?

Hinckley & Jocko: Oh, sure. :blush:

Stauder: Fine, I'll just leave. guess you really didn't want my help. :pir_bawling:

Oooo! These are pretty cool!. :pir-wub:

gatling4.jpg

IS: And here's a nice close up of the underside of gatling gun.

I'm having a hard time figuring out how these bricks fit together, but this gun looks cool. :thumbup:

Thank you Imperial Shadows. :pir-grin:

Well i've gone against Hinckley's wishes and decided to post this ship here. :pir-tongue:

What what what? I thought I said post it wherever. You don't need my permission. You're a staff member too, after all. Stop making me sound like a tyrant! :pir-hmpf_bad: despite my wishes...your face is a despite my wishes. :pir-tongue:

I love this ship phred! It's radical cool awesome. What sticks out to me as the most brilliant choice on your part is the use of the Exo-Force robot arms. If I revisit mine I'm totally stealing that. I love using those legs and arms for spaceships, but didn't even think about it for the steampunk ship. Wouldn't a robot arms be a cool thingy that attaches the ropes to the deck? :blush: Speaking of which, I really like your adaption of the rigging concept. Those technic "nuts" make an excellent addition to the art of string rigging. I love the round shaped body of the ship and especially the curved stern. What a smart idea to use those goofy hovercraft pieces. I have tried to use those in so many different MOCs with no success, but you've done a beautiful job here.

I also like the gatling gun...hey wait a minute...what the hell? *huh* Did you write your own version of EB news presents and include me and Jocko? It's art and hubris at the same time! :wub:

I also love the interior. You got so much in that small space. I really have to start putting more thought into the interiors of my MOCs. There's nothing inside my steampunk Pirate ship and Captain Green Hair actually had a long list of demands.

BTW, I always had the feeling that bumping a topic was okay as long as you had new information to add, which you did, so no apology necessary, IMO.

Awesome work! Thanks for sharing! You'll get to see my ship up close in a month! *oh2*

It's steampunkapiraticalitasticaligisticexpialidocious! I suddenly have hopes that maybe TLG will see the light and make some kind of twisted new Pirates line merging elements of steampunk in a quirkly new way, like you've done here. I'd really love to see that gatling gun a little closer though... oh wait, there's more! :pir-wink:

First off let me apologize to myself and staff for double posting here. :pir-cry_sad:

I don't think it ever counts as double posting if it's being used to show me, even if I never wear green pants. :pir-tongue:

I'm not too good and showing stuff off, but i know Imperial Shadows is.

So take it away IS.

I swear, I don't even remember this episode, but sure enough, it's me, oh and those other people look familiar too. :pir-laugh:

Thank you Imperial Shadows. :pir-grin:

Just make sure my royalty check gets sent out on time. :pir-sweet:

I assume Jocko is art and you're hubris in this equation, right? :pir-laugh:

You know, I'm not so sure about this "impersonating other people in fake news programs thing" though... *makes a note to add Phred to the list of people to impersonate in future episodes* :pir-devil:
