Hello, fellow buccaneers,
some of you may have read my last thread about the start of my fleet for Evil Steve's Pirate Game, which includes small cutters and brigs.
After countless hours constructing, designing, redesigning, testing, and a LOT of orders from Bricklink, I have the pleasure to hereby present you with my completed (yeah, sure) fleet, ready for some pirate gaming on my blue ocean carpet :)
As usual, special thanks got out to Matteo1130 for his Simple cannon design and, of course, Evil Willy for his Tutorial on making sails.
These ships are all based on either the Renegade Runner or the Cross Bone Clipper.
These ships are based on the old Imperial Flagship, with the exception of the last one: This is a trading ship basically copied from Kerntechniker's Tradingship. So thank you for your great design!
The first two ships are based on the Carribean Clipper, elongated to a length of two middle sections and given a proper second mast. The last one is obviously the Red Beard Runner, modified to put away with the stupid action features, able to mount three cannons on it's broadside, and given some proper rigging.
Special thanks to whoever it was who inspired me with his idea of using a red horse-helmet-thingy (?) for the red ship's figurehead. Looks really spiffy.
My whole fleet
In the background, you can see the Skull's Eye Schooner I got as a kid. I modified it slightly so the four cannons now actually stick out from the hull, which looks far better in my opinion. Well, I guess you can't really see it on the picture
I hope I can get some people inspired to do a similar project; it has been loads of fun spending time on the floor sorting bricks and building ships.
