Disclaimer:  As opposed to my other pirate mocs, this was an experimental battle scene, to see if Pirates lego + snow + Ketchup would equal a realistic battle scene.

In this Moc, we return to Upper Canada and our intrepid redcoats...

Posted Image
..are under attack!

Posted Image
The survivors.

Posted Image
An artilleryman preps a shot...

Posted Image
...But meets an unfourtunate end.

Posted Image
The Colonel  (me, yet again  :pir_laugh2: ) prepares to lead his men in a gallant attack...

Posted Image
...But gets swept off his horse by a bullet...

Posted Image
..and killed.  The grisly scene so far.

EDIT: Reaction positive!  I will finish!

Posted Image
The Remaining Redcoats are still under fire, leaderless and gunless.
"What do we do, Sarge?"
"We charge! It's what the Colonel woulda wanted."
"Are you sure?"
"Yes! Let's go!"

Posted Image
"England!"

Posted Image
The Sarge is plucked off by the enemy...

Posted Image
...but the lone redcoat charges on!

Posted Image
Only to be hit by a cannon ball. (Ouch)

Posted Image
The grisly (not grizzly  :pir-tongue: ) scene.

Questions/Comments?  Link to Part 1 and Part 2

Thus concludes my Pirates in the Snow miniseries.  If you want more, comment in this topic's new poll.

It's an interesting concept, but I'm not quite sure about the ketchup. I do enjoy the outdoor locations though.

Personally I love the ketchup (please tell me it IS ketchup you used as blood!)
And I love these snowy scenes a lot as well, good job :thumbup: !

I like it, the story as well. :pir-skull:
I also like the ketchup ( or isn't it? ) used for blood, the snow is great too.
Can't wait to see more. :pir-blush:

They are the most delicious looking Imperial Guards I've seen in a long time!


Interesting you've used "Do you want more Pirates in the Snow?" as the poll title because there aren't actually any pirates in those pictures.  In fact, I don't think I've never seen Pirate LEGO in the snow (excluding certain artwork :pir-wink:) so you could be breaking new ground if you use Pirate mini-figures next time.

Perhaps...hmmm, that is food for thought.  You've given me an excellent idea, Phes; I shall try it out ASAP.

As for the lack of Pirates...well, would you want to be wearing bare arms in the middle of a Canadian winter?  I think not. :pir_laugh2:

As for all those who followed this series, I do have a new series:Thok's Journey Through the World of the 19th Century.  Check it out - I've actually done some real building this time!

This says Stalingrad to me :pir-wink: Or the Crimea, maybe.
I really like the concept, and the ketchup is... interesting.
I'm not a big fan of the over-stated gore (although I do like a bit) - what I'd really like to see is a less "Batman" approach, but more like these (minus the ketchup :pir-grin:) -

Sort of bodies in the snow, mostly covered, only vague shapes. And soldiers with crutches limping through the snow.
Perhaps as a Part 4?

Keep it up :thumbup:

Thanks, Sly!  I am in the midst of making a part 4 - however, I am more focused on my new series.

Maybe I won't use ketchup next time....

I've been following your series and I never commented until now and I wanted to say that I love these scenes with the snow and the "blood". Its very interesting and I can't wait to see a Part 4! :wub:
