Now that's impressive! Great army GA.

How did you manage to collect all of these? Ebay, Bricklink? I hope to get an army of the new soldiers that's half the size of this. :pir_laugh2:

Wow man, that's huge! I don't even have the equaivalant of one of the small groups of guys. Really nice. When you get your French army up, these fellas will be marching right onto the Classic-Pirates.com frontpage.:pir-wink:

Impressive army! I'm jealous now! Even Bonaparte's army is no match for them at the moment.
But I have a feeling that that will change soon.

You drive a hard bargain! Think about the man who gave all this soldiers away for a meagre ammount of 40 Dollars!!  :pir-grin:
This is huge! I wish I was such a lucky pirate like you... :pir-look:
Lucky enough you are building a French army as well, since this army is terrefying to me!

Here I come with my 14 bluecoats! And about 5 artillery pieces, 2 cavalry units, a corrupt general....
I really have to upgrade my army before it's too late!

You know, whenever one of you guys puts an army together like this, or makes a ship bigger than my volkswagen, I wonder why I even try to do anything anymore.

Yeah, I think I'm going to like it. But when you see someone rolling out with a 10,000 man red coat army makes you feel kinda small, you know?

You start to ask yourself questions like,

"Why build fort freedom when they could show up and we can kill them 4 to 1 and we still will lose?"

OR

"Even if half their guns are drunk and all our guys are sober, this will not go well"

OR

"Most of the time, all of our guys are drunk, so this really won't go well"

OR

"Man... thats a lot of dudes, how many dudes do we have again?"..... "We need more dudes"

Never! The good thing on REDcoats is the fact you don't need to clean the blood stains after battle. :pir-skull:

Ok every one i've decided to tell you probably the most shocking news you've ever heard about armies,
THIS ARMY IS A HOAX
Yes its true, its fake,hoax not real, and never gonna happen.
really do you think some dude sold me 300+ troops for $40?  And all of them armed?  Not in your life or mine.
its all made up.  But im not telling how I did it :pir-devil:
All I really own is this:
Posted Image
Its a decent amount, and im working on it
soooo soorrryy to do such a great fake army but, I had to.
Bonapartes army is tooo big. :pir-tongue:  I would of madea French army but I didn't want to wait until my French army was here.
Even though I love Frances army, it looks scary seeing a load of redcoats marching over a hill :pir-sick:
So thank you all for commenting on my Real fake army :pir-sweet:
If you all want, I can hoax a mega super huge French amry consisting of 2000 men :pir-skull:
Oh and Captain Zuloo, do you think the armies can both make frontpage as "The army hoax that shocked Classic-Pirates"?

Enjoy
