Welcome one and all to my newest moc.

Posted Image

BSB related as ever and this i think will be the final incarnation of this paticular vessel though her sister ship is still languishing between builds.

I'm open to suggestions for improvements and there is still a little work to be done on the back end of the ship and cabins quarters not to mention the lack of access to the top deck....

But yer the main key idea behind this ship was cargo space. As you can see in the pictures she has a HUGE cargo hold. Due to the nature of the cargo at the moment the main deck is converted to a gun deck to provide protection from pirates and alike. For other cargos this deck could also be utilised for cargo. The foredeck carries two cannons too to be sure that anyone trying to get in the way coming into or out of any ports will hastely be moving out of the way.


8 cannons bless her topside, 3 a side with 2 chasers. Not the most formidable of firepower arrangements but more than enough to see off any pirate BSBs and even if she comes across a SES then her marines should be sufficient to protect her.

The Marine detachment are aboard to protect the cargo and the crew has the admiral aboard to keep an eye on the most precious cargo.

She comes heavily armoured with tumbelhome sides and despite the vast quantity of cargo carried she still manages to be a fairly rapid little ship.

Nice ship! Although I am not that aquainted with the pirates theme, it is apparent for your talent for your construction! Good job! *sweet*

Real money?!  X-D
Pfft! These Imperials can't even build their own ships, but instead take a leaf out of the Pirates' book by stealing, from the Pirates, no less!
Nice job.

Can you imagine how much gold that would be in the LEGOworld!! 8-  
Real gold in a pirate ship. What a lovely idea!

I'd love to steal that one and take all the gold She looks seaworthy, and discrete enough to ship the gold.

Good job Admiral!

Let me see if I heard right...  You're complaining because Imperials stole from Pirates who are thieving scumbags themselves?  Who cares about the feelings of pirates...  :-P

Wig, my men are from the South of Essex. They think bars an pubs that have sawdust on the floor for the blood are posh, but wouldn't dream of wanting to set foot into them. These are men who know how to be dumb and intelligent AT THE SAME TIME. (Or, Boris Johnson of the Tory party. VOTE TORY!)

Hey Admiral, was this ship going to be your treasure ship that you had started a thread on a while ago?
If so, it's nice to see you've completed your ship *y*

Also, this ship has been assimilated into row 32, column C in the Index of MOC Ships.
Welcome again to the index. *sweet*

That ship looks great. I really like the use of 2 coins... I've relatives from Essex and they usually keep that sort of display of wealth well in their pockets (mainly when it comes to round time at the bar!!).
Have you done the insides of the cabin to the rear of the vessel?, it'll be good to see where the captain spends his time.
(I'm staring to understand your pirate weirdness now ......having been lured here by Capt'n green hair on my "hello, I'm" thread!! (no offence intended... I don't want a bunch of pirates on my back!!!!).  :-$

Hahaha. I guess i invited the anti-scouser jokes.

And yes phred it is the rebuilt treasure ship from a while back, although if im honest the two ships i have switched roles and what was the treasure ship is now going to become my escort ship, if i ever get round to scrounging enough bricks to complete the hull.

I haven't as yet completed the inside of the captains cabin, all thats in there at the moment is 4 treasure chests full of standard lego gold. Proper minted are my men.

Got bored tonight and started on a little outpost for them too but time will tell if i ever get it to be how i want it to be!

I don't lug round 2 coins to the bar!!! Just notes. :P

And thank you very much norman but none of my men will be flogged thank you very much.

Failed to mention initially that the design of the ship was constructed with pirates in mind and to gain access to the treasure below decks then you must have access to a substantial port to be able to remove both the walls and the deck planking above. Not a simple job and certaintly not one easily achieved at sea by thieving pirates or southerners!!!

Lies!!! Tis no piggy bank!!!!

Tis a heavily armoured cargo vessel!!!!

What better way to stop the heathen barbarians and pirates from stealing the precious tax moneys then by melting all the gold and silver into collossal 'coin' shapes. Thus eliminating pilfering by any pirates as they can't lift the treasure!!!!
