th_thindexed.gif Cannon, other 4d

Hello, as some of you may have seen, I have a thread called "French Artillary" showing a custom cannon. Well i'm taking on a new challenge to make lego Rocket Artillary for those Napoleonic War Fans (Bonaparte ;) I am looking for a picture of Napoleonic Rocket Artilary. So far all i've found is blurry pictures from Empire Total War and battle scenes with no good picture whatsoever. So if someone can find me a picture of rocket artillary during the era that would be amazing.

Thank You,

Kinzcove

I never knew those rockets were also stationed on small boats. :pir_laugh2:

Hope this might help as well!

It may be from a video game but it is still artillery.

I know its tiny but it is still visible.

Nope, but it can be. On the PC it looks different, more detailed and better graphics.

It looks more like Imperial Glory. Also an amazing game. :pir-blush:

Hello everybody,

I recently finished a project I was planning for a while. Here is some Napoleonic Rocket Artillery, accompanied by a Rocket Artilleryman using a torso provided by the Pirate Torso Library.

Lookin' good, Sir Wellington! That rocket is quite realistic looking, I love the way you made it. It really is something I would expect to see on an 18th century battlefield! What was your reference?

Since this thread wasn't really going anywhere I have merged it with it's counterpart thread in the main Pirate Forum.

May this blessid union kick things off!

Your design is fantastic. It is really cool that they had rocket artillery back then. I think I might put some rocket artillery on my next ship.

Your design is quite realistic sir Wellington! :thumbup:

I love these threads learning us about the history of the 16th - 19th century, i find it quite fascinating.

We should have more of these!
