Nice entry Crystal.  Shame though the Bluecoats make their daughters dress that way in public.

I am not sure about this team.  One or two people dropped out and maybe one more is out of town (I've lost track a little).  I think the Bluecoats should post if they are ready if the Redcoats are missing their days...after that it is up to the judges what happens.

Well done everyone...so many great and funny creations.  As round one draws to a close, I must say I have had a real blast!  Thank you all!

Allright then, here we go!

In 1712 the Bluecoats abandoned this island, it became a place to hide.
And so there was another Redcoat, he fled away from a battle.


Posted Image
The silly Redcoat explores the island, when he discovers something...

Posted Image
Since the Redcoat hadn't eaten for days, the bananas are delicious! Unfortunately the lad became addicted to them...

Posted Image
The vultures already know what is going to happen to the poor dumb Redcoat...

Posted Image
He doesn't even realise it's a trap... A nasty trap...

And the Redcoat falls in the pit below...

Posted Image
At that same point, a ship from the Bluecoat navy was waiting offshore till the Redcoat fell in the pit.
Then, the soldiers came in action!

Posted Image
Of course the captain of that ship couldn't resist to take a look as well.

Posted Image
The Redcoat was easily found. He was already bitten by the huge ammount of snakes in the pit.

Posted Image
No more words were wasted on the Redcoat, we Bluecoats have more things to do then executing stupid Reddies!



The Bluecoats didn't say: "Oh poor Redcoat, let me give you some help to get out of that pit."

And they didn't say either: "Ok men, let's give him a chance by challenge him for a fair duel."

And they especially didn't say: "Four against one is actually not fair!"

Cap'n Blackmoor's parrot tells what actually DID happen:


Posted Image

Yeah, that's the way we like it here! Take that you nasty Redcoats! A well deserved treat! :pir-skull:

But why do those Bluecoats have Top-hats? Are they aristocrats or something?

Thanks!

Those Bluecoats are Bluecoat mariners from the navy. Sharpshooters in fact who hide in the crowsnests to snipe the enemy on their ship.

Nice!  I can't believe it took a Bluecoat General, a Bluecoat Captain, four Bluecoat idiots and some guy rowing a boat to kill a single redcoat deserter.  And...why is it you guys weren't at the battle he was running away from?   :pir-wink:

It is a Bluecoat officer, ME, four of the best mariners and a rowing guy. This Redcoat isn't the first one we kill there.
And we weren't needed at that battle, we don't use 10 ships against a single Redcoat ship... Even without a ship of ours it will sink anyway since Redcoats can't handle a ship. :pir-skull:
But I'm glad you like it. :pir-classic:

But all those gys are English Redcoats. I mean, It goes Boatswain, Admiral Joey Lock, Commodore Hornbricker, Duke Lt. Col Thok, A Redcoat Drummer and Redcoat Marine.

Your frenchies copied us. Just like the americans copied our music as their national anthem... :pir-sceptic:

Your frenchies copied us

From wikipedia:
Top hats started to take over from the tricorne at the end of the 18th century; a painting by Charles Vernet of 1796, Un Incroyable, shows a French dandy (one of the Incroyables et Merveilleuses) wearing such a hat.

So one of the first painting is of a french man wearng the top-hat. Anyway, the point is that there were top-hats at the time (though it's uncertain wich nation was the first wearing them).

And another thing, the famous ship HMS Surprise used to be french and the british copied our shp design like Blackmoor said. And even in the 18th century France was the centre of fashion so the british copied to much french things to count :pir-tongue:

Why did you get yourselves captured then? Finders Keepers.
And if we copied French naval ship designs, why did we happen to win many great battles if we had the same style ship?

And our Boatswains didn't have Top Hats, they had smaller hats, And the french dandys where not of naval origin.

Actually, the French ships were even better designed. The British however had the adventage of a good trained crew, and were more advanced at communicating between ships which is essential during a battle.
Admiral Villeneuve had never practised at sea, so he was quite unexperienced. So the French fleet screwed up by Aboekir and Trafalgar. But a few years earlier Admiral de Grasse beat the British fleet several times thanks to his superior naval skills and tactics. Thanks to him the British were unable to help General Cornwallis in the US.

That's how it was!

Let's end the historic facts now and get back on topic. :pir-classic:

But I do! Stop japping about historical facts, this contest is supposed to be about FUN, not historically correct!
In fact, most of us only PRESUME bluecoats are French and redcoats are British but that is nowhere said (and an entirely different conversation we will not have here).
eg. also Spain and some German states' soldiers had red uniforms, Dutch other other Germans states had blue uniforms as well.
So keep it simple: REDCOATS vs. BLUECOATS and no more overuse of historical facts and Empires. If it came down to that, then simply adding a year would make the nation win or loose.

But It would be silly to bring a gigantic Chrome scimitar when your trying to spy.  :pir_laugh2: But judging that your a Bluecoat you would obviously think of doing something like that.
