Somewhere in the lego Caribbean a small redcoat artillery regiment marches to thier position in the next battle.  Having lost many horses in previous fighting they have been forced to sieze livestock from the farms along the way, and employ them to haul munitions.

Looks good, the nature around is pretty well detailed and I like your caisson too.
Poor little cow...having to pull such a heavy weight all day long...the happy times of grazing are now in the past forever...when she arrives at the front its probably 'roasted beef' on the menu :pir-cry_sad: .

Looks awesome! just the perfect amount of detail in the landscape. Perhaps have some bluecoats waiting to ambush them?

Seems to be you have forgotten he has a backup, which is ready soon.... :pir-wink:

On topic again:


That is a nice transport Captain Stabbin! The cannon carts are great and you've done a nice job on the landscaping! Perhaps some different ground colours will add even more realism to it. :thumbup:

Warms my heart to see Redcoats on the march advancing on the enemy.  Nice job on the carts and wagons.  Somehow those are always hard to get to scale and you managed it well.

Thanks, I modeled the caisson and limber after ones I saw in a book about field ordinace.  I tried to get them as close as I could to the real thing.

For some reason this picture reminds me of what is that battle again?The one where the lobsterbacks were retreating from philadephia then the bluecoats attacked led by general Lee the worse the general next to B,A(I won't even dare say his name for his treachery).

Edited by hawkrider, 22 March 2010 - 10:57 PM.

In the begging there was only 3 men one liked the color red ,another liked the color blue,and the last one liked the color green.Then they found some coats and started hitting each other.That's how war was made.
I will only have respect for redcoats when they actually make a "General Redwater's amazing bleach!"

Great moc. D

Great moc. Did you use the cow because you couldn't find your horses or because you wanted to? Either way great moc!

Sorry I don't know what happened with the first line, I didn't type that!

Yes!  More Redcoats!

Just a little cc', I think I would have joined the two green plates together with some plates on top so that top shot would not expose the white table cloth underneath.

This is one of my earlier creations and I did not have many horses.  Now I probably have more than I will ever need.

Thanks for the cc.  I never really noticed that, but that is a good suggestion that I would definitely make use of now.

I really like the overview photo. A little more vegetation wouldn't hurt but it's a nice scene as it is. With so many people into army building it's surprising we don't see more builds like this. It looks like the Redcoats are ready for some serious action. Good job.
