Can you provide me a link? It wasnt very "obvious" on their website....

I checked Bricklink and there wasn't any Bayonets for sale, your going to have to find someone who is willing to trade.

The above is correct . . . on both counts! :wink:

Rest assured, when Will adds the Bayonet to the BrickArms line-up, you won't have to search too hard for it!

question to the officĂ­als: is my moc (battle of trenton) in or not, as has been said, it doesn't depcit any actual fighting, however, it encompasses what most people today still remember from this battle, which wasn't very bloody, but extremely important for american history

Brainstorming for ideas :cannon:

That is correct, as it's out of the time period.

When,not if ;), the contest is successful, is their a chance that the timeline could by enlarged for the second one. I would like to do something like the Siege of Khartoum or even te Boer War for it. (Just read the Simon Fonthill novels by John Wilcox) If not, the Battle of Rorke's Drift would be OK to do, wouldn't it?

It might be a possibility. As of now, we don't have plans for a new Bayonets at Dawn Contest, but you never know. :pir-classic:

I'm not the resident battle expert, so I'm probably not the one to ask. :pir_laugh2:

Late 19th century battles fall outside the age of sail, and out of the true pirate age. Of course piracy still exists, but a line has to be drawn somewhere. A late 19th century battle fits better in the Historic themes forum. There are plenty of battles in the age of sail, also with islanders. Captain Cook for example. :pir-wink:

I know this doen't have anything to due with Bayonets at Dawn but were do we post modern piracy related MOCs, here or in 'Other Themes"?

A difficult question. You can relate MOCs to the year they have been made for or how the MOC is built. British soldiers still had their red coats during the Wild West time.

It is a border which is hard to make or to see. The true age of pirates ended when the age of sail ended. That is my view on the matter. :pir-wink:

I`m just wondering, when is that? They still used sail up to the early 20th century, but I thought we should put 20th century in City, or Historic themes.

Well, I just noticed the end date and the build I haven't started well. I do not think I will be able to enter this contest, The end date is a few days after Last day at school, ever. So this week will be a busy planning week and the weekend will be a celebration.

Anyway, There are plenty more entries better than my idea! Good Luck guys! :thumbup:

Actually it's been June 1st in all of the world for more than 6 hours already. So in 20 hours it's not June 1st in any part of the world, it's June 2nd or even June 3rd in some places.

But you're the boss so I wont arguing. :pir-wink:

- 10 points! :pir-laugh:

The more entries we have, the better, last time there were some members complaining the board didn't show the right time or something, so I wanted to overcome that problem this way.

Anyway, the definitive deadline has been set. Those who have to start building now are gonna be too late anyway :pir-wink: .
