I've used the US guys from the cavalry sets as another high-seas faction, too. :D

Thanks for the edits; they were a good idea.


I love the colors on this MOC. Matt has created a good, consistent color scheme. The custom main sail looks good and the masts are nicely placed, with lots of room in between for playability. I like the ladders used to extend the shrouds on the mainmast, and I think the sterncastle looks fine. It's also a creative use of Western theme figs and symbols for Pirate theme purposes.

My advice is when posting someone else's MOC, try to credit their name name in the thread description or at least in the first post and also display at least one picture.

Pictures can help a thread garner more attention but not always!

Very interesting use of Cavalry minifigs.  What did the Union and Confederate Navy look like during the Civil War?  Did they wear the iconic Blue and Gray as the army?

I've found a webpage on the  U.S. Civil War Uniforms which may be of help.  Here's a link for you.

Im guessing that this is a steam frigate.  And the Confederate regulars had grey uniforms and the Union had blue.
