I voted for the Redcoats.

I like them all, actually, but there is just something about the Redcoats which makes them better.

Thanks for the poll! :pir_laugh2:

I voted bluecoats - I don't even have any redcoats I think, and the Armada guys are really not my type - I'm so psyched that LEGO has returned to the best kind of Pirate/Soldier/Imperial-style instead of all that Islander and Armada stuff

I like them all 3, but the spaniards are probably my favourites, despite only owning 6 of them  :pir-cry_sad:  (4 soldiers, 1 red admiral/commander/whatever and 1 green admiral/commander/whatever).

It's got to be the British Redcoats. Then again, it is really only because I'm British. Then again the Redcoats were an amazing army.

I finally made up my mind: Bluecoats (although the new Redcoat torsos are really nice too). For me it isn't really about Britain vs. France, I just prefer the whole look (including the fleur-de-lis flags) of the Bluecoat faction.

I already have a nice idea for a Bluecoat sigfig...

Bluecoats first, Redcoats second, Armada third!
Although I like the shiny armour of the Armada Captain.

Bluecoats rule!
Plus they are inherently French.
(Well to be honest I simply always had more of them, hence it was cheaper for me to concentrate on blues for my army and marines.)

I love the new redcoats, and they look great lined up. :thumbup: Currently, I'm trying to make a small army of them.

Actually I'd dub this as an "evergreen" topic.  (Thanks LEGO Group for that word  :pir-classic: )

A favourite Imperial Faction is not a time sensitive discussion so its better to bump an old thread than create an duplicate.

There sevreal threads like this I need to someday collate and categorise...

If LEGO made them, I would like the greencoats (Hessian Soldiers). But, the bluecoats are great, too. They remind me of circa 1776 Soldiers of the Continental Army.

Red Coats. They were the marines. The ones with muskets; sharpshooters.

I have reds and blues in my collection. But green, not yet.

Still looking for a ship. Perhaps a boat as a start.

I personally find the whole bluecoats/redcoats thing a little bewildering... is it just about what your favourite colour is, or is there more to it than that? My favourite colour is purple... does that mean I should like a cross between bluecoats and redcoats?

The Spanish have nice helmets, but I prefer the shakos and tricorns and bicorns, I think they fit in better with the 'pirates' theme... but other than that, I have no real preference between blue and red.

I think if I had to choose between blue and red, I'd go with red, because that's what they wear in that Hornblower episode 'The Frogs and The Lobsters'.

Red it is then.

Typically I am a fan of the Prussian blue colour (much like the uniform colour of the new Admiral), but nonetheless I gave my vote for the good old bluecoats. In my opinion they are classic, they have the best fortresses and have the best evolution as a 'good' faction. Only their similar faces are a bit of a problem but you can just change them with new ones.

My second favourite are the masters of the New World, i.e. the Spaniards, in spite of their shortage of models.
