Well i got something done. :grin:
Since it's a staff entry, i did what i wanted to.  :pir-tongue:

I've made a cutter to go on my USS Constitution.
The stern portion was inspired by Captain Green Hair's and Errorist's long boat.
The mast was inspired by Captain Cavino's small sail boat.
and used the bow design from my gun boat.

That's awesome!
I'm not very good on ships, so it's great to see one as lovely as this! :thumbup: Especially the white hull.
The only thing I'm not too sure about is the space control panel thing at the top of the mast; I'd have gone with some combination of brown parts.

And I do know what a motorcycle is! :pir_laugh2: They go vroom vroom and CGH has a new one that goes vroom vroom vroom :monkey:

Lots of humor and a really nice ship. I laughed quite a bit when I read it.

Good work! :monkey:

I think you're talking about this brick that has 3mm rigid hose going through each axle hole:

I've only got that brick in light bley, but the piece was perfect. :pir-blush:

What the hell? It looked like I was running around in circles for most of the comics, then I dissapeared. What's going on?

Great comic, by the way. I wouldn't call 10 pictures image heavy, though. :pir-look:
Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)

When you disappeared, you ran and anyone else that's missing ran away from the scary fabuland bear. :pir-laugh:
It's really hard to keep track of every fig when you're taking the pics at home, then going to another location to edit the pics and put in call-outs. :pir-look:
I'll do better next time Mr. Norrington. :thumbup:
I'm still new at making comics. :pir-cry_happy:

I give much credit to Mr. Hinckley in the creation of his comics.
They're very well made and organized. :pir-wub:

Maybe i should give your fig a rank in one of my creations.
Would that make you happy? :pir-tongue:

OKay, now you're text message makes sense. This is the best Pillage the Village Contest comic ever! Nice work. I'm glad I think outside the box for pillaging. Where'd you get that rare Fabuland hammer? :wink: You should be more considerate to Norrington, you big jerk, but outside of that the comic rocked! I want to see more in this series. You're funny. Although I like you better with a big fish head...
