Almost got it anyway hurray for all the winners but I'll be back next year for some fun!
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!"

Three cheers for the Red Coats and our commanding victory over the sniveling, inferior Blue Coats!

Huzzah!
Huzzah!
Huzzah!

The Red Coats orchestrated a sound victory, despite the complete lack of a Red Coat entry on the front page during the voting period for the second round (I smell Blue Coat conspiracy and I'm looking at you, Big Cam  :pir-wink: ).  No matter, the Red Coats prevailed!

Congratulations to all the winners, especially you Fugazi - that was one hilarious and well-constructed comic you put together!

And once more, a giant treasure chest overflowing with gratitude to the incomparable Commodore Hornbricker as well as all the other moderators and staff who made this possible.

It was the first LEGO-based contest I've ever entered and I had a great time meeting (and battling) the fine gentlemen (and mostly, scurvy bilgerats) on Classic Pirates.

Now cue the Red Coat victory hymn...
"Humanity has advanced, when it has advanced, not because it has been sober, responsible and cautious, but because it has been playful, rebellious, and immature."

Well, that's disappointing. Not only did I not win anything, but I failed to support my faction resulting in its defeat as well. :pir-sad2: Oh well, it was all good fun. Congrats to the winners. There were some very funny comics and I enjoyed being part of it.
On the bright side, the Redcoats outdid us by only 23 votes. Next time, victory shall be ours! :pir-vader:

Congrats to the winners.

...does this mean we HAVE to stop killing/dismembering/and otherwise humiliating redcoats now?


@-Oky Wan Kenobi
You did great. Your entries were very well designed, and I liked them. Dont feel bad.

We will turn the tide next year, and defeat them once and for all!!!!

If you have such a powerful urge to huminilate the other side outside this contest, please don't post it in the pirate forum, but in this very thread.
This measure keeps the forum clean from spamming with comments like "Redcoats are ugly" "No, Blucecoats are!" Remember that this specific thread is one to post funny anti-red/bluecoats MOCs.
Outside the ToR, regular members who come across the pirate forum might be confused when they see a Red vs. Blue battle going on in every thread. By posting your MOCs in that thread this is avoided.

Already thanks! :pir-classic:

And to think the bluecoats scoffed at me when I said the Redcoats would win this year.  Poor them, even after showing them the future, the still didn't get that we would win this year.  :pir-tongue:

Sorry for the late reply, I am away on a camping trip and Internet access is very sporadic. :pir_bawling:

But anyway, WOW! I'm amazed and thrilled be cause I certainly didn't expect to win this contest, I thought other entries were so much funnier than mine... but I won't complain either! Thank you all for your kind words, and your votes. This was an awesome contest, creativity was incredible and I loved each and every entry! :thumbup:

Finally, a huge thank you to Commodore Hornbricker and the rest of the Pirates team for setting up this contest and hosting it in the most entertaining ways! It's really much more than a contest, it's an event and a memorable one! Thanks again! :pir-blush:

And now that I will have more Pirates parts in my collection, I will certainly be able to contribute more to this forum! Looking forward to that! :thumbup:
