now you can see my royal battleship through the following link:
sori, i don't know how to attach pics here (i tried but it didn't show up) so i hv to do this through a link...
basically it's a double deck battleship with 14 cannons... the double cannons at the front can spin around... the upper deck cannons (4 on each side) are fixed, whereas the cannons in the lower deck are shared (in other words there are four cannons in total in the lower deck and they can be rotated and deployed on either side of the ship - those who owns Skulls Eye Schooner will know what i mean.) basically this is an extension of the Skulls Eye Schooner , only i make it into a good guy ship with more guns on it....
btw you can check out my monrail system here:
and my police headquarter here:

This ship looks like its got a bit of Caribbean Clipper, a bit of Skulls Eye Schooner and a bit Armada Flagship thrown into the mix!

May I suggest something, though: Try putting the big sail on the second mast and the two smaller ones on the front mast. Methinks that would look better...
But in general a great MOC :)

I suppose it has to be called HMS something.... HMS Conquers, HMS destroyer (doesn't sound like a nice guy ship though)....
Do you hv any suggestions?
btw i like yr new avatar ;) i will wk on mine soon

As for your ship... I think HMS Destroyer is too ironic for a ship of this nature, and I'm sure I've heard it used before. More than once. So lets see if we can find something a little more original.
What nationality is the ship suppose to be? I see there are the Armada (which usually indicates Spanish) flags and sales, plus the Blue Coat (whatever nationality they are to you. I.e. British Navy or French) soliders and flags. Once we determine the nationality we can combine the ships function with a noun of that nationalities' native language.

However there are French men lurking on this message board. I shall contact them at once to request assistance!

I have looked at the most well known French Corsairs and I have listed their frigate's name (I've put a translation in brackets):
L'Hermine (The Ermine)
La Diligente (The Diliget)
L'Emilie (The Emily)
Le Clarisse (The Clarisse)
La Royale (The Royal)
La Palme (The Palm)
Le Dauphin (The Dolphin)
Le Glorieux (The Glorious)
I also like: La Canonnière (The Gunboat)
I hope this helped you in your search of a name ;)

mind you the most impressive ship I hv seen can be found here... (it's not my creation... i wish i hv one like that... my Le Glorieux was inspired by this....)
it's a super, mega, maxima battleship... a superb 32 gunners (with 16 on each side).... i won't fancy to put my ship anywhere near it... my Le Glorieux just doesn't stand a chance...
