I absolutely love the Cannon Battle set, especially as a parts pack. So here's what you get when you bring together 5 of them! :pir_laugh2:

Lovely pictures, Erdbeereis!  :pir-classic:

Honestly, Cannon Battle will probably be the first set ever that I get more than one of. It's such a good value that I'm sure I'll be getting two or three.

I may have to get a few of those and make some kind of circular wall around a pirate camp.
I might even need to give the pirates a couple cannons to even it out.

In the late middle ages they used those huge cannons in battle.  I believe they are called bombards.

A strawberry dressed up as a terrorist with cannons...uh oh :pir-grin:

This must be the best impulse set yet, for little money you get a canon, a soldier, a spyglass and one of those new flame parts.
I must get me some too :pir-sweet:


Those big canons are indeed late medieval, but were also used throughout the age of sail.
In the industrial age, they were around too, along with mortars and what not.
Good to see some people in the pics for size indeed!
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

Huge cannons indeed!

Unfortunately I haven't a new pirate set yet but I'm going to stack them up soon.

Nice MOC by the way!

Erdy, I am feeling so impatient for the long wait of Pirate sets' arrival in my country. I must admit that this is going to be one of the much better small Pirate set is offering so much great parts, especially the cannon and the minifigs.  :pir-sweet:

I think this set is an unfair battle for the nice pirate it incluides... Poor guy only has a tiny wall and a cutlass to defend himself. And even if he survives the first barrage of the cannons, the rifles of the soldiers will finish him. Unfair indeed....

...and a very nice set as said ;-)

He was silly enough to wait around while the lone solider dragged the canon into place, aimed it and loaded it.... IMO Poor solider for having to deal with retard pirates all day :D
BTW, get 2, then the solider and the pirate can have 1 each while the other two minifigs battle it out with said cutlass's
