Great job!  I'd like to see a lower profile picture.  Can't see much from the high angle.

That looks great! Do you have any applications for it planned yet?

Looks good Hound Knight!

Might I suggest you try and see if it works with a brown cannon base as well?

Also a nice creation Hound Knight!
The barrel may be a bit long for a howitzer, how about to make a custom one?
The shiney new barrel looks great though, like Tiber mentioned it would be even better with a brown base under it.
Some ammunition would be a nice addition.

Alas, I currently have no brown cannon bases!  :pir-cry_sad:

I may try to make a custom barrel, although I do like the shooting function...  :cannon:

I'd recommend blasting away at the French forces. :pir-wink:

I also like the shooting function. since it's a howitzer and is supposed to shoot high in the air, perhaps you could partially hide the barrel?

just a crazy wacko idea  :pir_laugh2:

I doubt you redcoats even know how to load a cannon...

In time, we will put that to the test!!!!

They might not yet, but once I make an officer to train them they will annihilate all armies that oppose them. With one cannon. True story.  :pir-tongue:

Nice MOC, and also nice that these bricks are not so hard to find (and buy). And with the good new cannon-colour :pir-classic:

I think that is probably because they've never actually needed cannons before to defeat the Bluecoats.

Because they can't find us. I'll let you in on a little secret, the ninja theme, that was actually blue coats in the process of building our new army.

I think Tiber underestimates the Bluecoat forces, on this forum there are more Bluecoat naval ships then Redcoat ships.
Perhaps on land there are more Redcoats but the seas are ours!  :pir-devil:

Which makes me sure I have to finish my secret project ship and expand my land army as soon as possible!

You going to brickworld? I am rectifying this red coat "land superiority" with a nice fort.

I wish I could go to Brickworld, it all sounds like an awesome event.
But I live in the Netherlands...
Of course I can travel to the States but I'd rather save myself some pennies for my coming student time, and LEGO!
So I really hope there will be a great LEGO event in the Netherlands soon, where I can show my creations too.
