My Imperial Flagship

27 posts in this topic

Howdy all. I'm fairly an amature, so bear with me.

My next project is an Imperial ship, 8 guns, with 2 decks (I think). I will design the ship on LDD, but eventually will buy the bricks off of bricklink.

Here is the deck, I've got the tumblehome done alright:

I will work on the cabin next. Comment if you wish.

No apologies are needed if you come up with such a vessel! :pir-tongue:

The coloursheme looks great this way, the shape as well.

You mention to place 8 guns in it, I would expand the ship if I had already this part.

Good luck further mate!

I really like the back of the ship and how it tapers off square rather than following the hull. Very nice indeed!

Update #2

I have made my ship have 16 guns, not eight, but i'm not sure about the arangemet yet. Next update, it'll be decided. I have finished the cabin and hull, and are working to complete the bow section. how does it look?

It looks great so far, the coloursheme is very striking but the cabin points out far too much over the hull.

I see a nice start on the bow. Keep it up! :thumbup:

That would be because I haven't added the sloping part of the stern yet. That is what I'll be working on next, after I finish the forcastle.

Ooo I didn't know that part wasn't finished yet. It's a hard part to do, the bow as well.

I think this ship will turn out really good and it would be even more awesome if you build it in real! :pir-blush:

Looks great so far, I can't wait to see it completed! What sort of cannons is it going to be fitted out with?

Its time for...

UPDATE #3! :pir_laugh2:

The digital stage is complete! The bow slopes have been completed, and I added the forecastle. Then I did the stern slopes and masts.

See all the pictures on BRICKSHELF!

soon, I shall get the bricks in real, and build THE GREATEST SHIP EVER!!! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

I shall destroy Teddy's AND CGH's, all at the same time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11!1!!!!

oh, and to answer your question, I'll be using the new gunmetal cannons. The flaps, which only come in blue on LDD, will be white. For some reason, I couldn't get them attached. oh well...

I just want to give the same warning I give everyone. Your ship may be big, and it may be bad, but how many harbor sentrys do you think you can take one before you get taken down?

It's kinda like asking how many 5th graders you can beat up...

Well... I have a lot of 5th graders....

How many can there be in one harbor? Well... lets see. I have 16 cannons for eight broadsides, so that makes something decent. I'll have 10 marines, each with a rifle... so i'd say... at least 52, before the warships are alerted.

Ok, let me be honest with you and say that Im not quite up to 52 yet. But the ones I do have are very sneaky, and not all "happy go lucky" row around guys like the officer on the cover of the box....

oh...you? Well, in your case, get your black dagger to ram, climb aboard with your blackcoats, and take control of the ship! :pir_laugh2:

Haha! The black dagger is in drydock undergoing MASSIVE update and rennovations. Besides, I don't know where I am going to put her now that I have two Caribbean Clippers coming!

However, even if the blackcoats needed to swim over there... you might be in trouble! :pir_laugh2:

Besides, there are a lot more blackcoats than two now. I haven't posted pictures yet because I haven't been able to get my whole army in one spot. Some of the blue coats have bowling leagues, and the black coats are always at the casino.

WHAT! You got more than 2! How do you think we are supposed to defend ourselves?!

I'm going to be AFK for a few hours, training my marines :pir_laugh2:

Yeah, Im up to 8 ships now. Not including some custom creations that I have been working on, and not including my gang of harbor sentrys. Everyone knows how much trouble they can be.

I really need to get away from ships for a while and get my port done. Its no use to have a fleet if it can't park somewhere, reload and repair.

I know... I'm glad I made it, but I wanted to make an imperial port and this will take all christmas and holiday money, along with some babysitting cash. :pir_bawling:

anyone got $275? :pir-sceptic:

I think I can get it down to $242, still alot, but it will give me some cash to get the flaps and flags.
