Oh, Pirates for sure, due to the era, plus I'm the Shipyard Master, what I say goes, I suppose.

And yes sir Alex, our front page is calling out to this MOC.

Awesome work ACpin, I can totally see this coming to life, what a great scene.

Go to Classic-Pirates.com

It'll be up around the 17th. :pir-classic:

Very nice! :thumbup:
The minifigs themselves are awesome of course, but an army of them is even better.
And you also made a nice MOC around it. Well done.

Somebody beat me to that, thought about the same thing ... but it's really a great, great (little) MOC. Simple in technic but great in detail and action.  :thumbup:  

Did I mentioned that I think it's great?  :pir-classic:

The cardinal's guard is looking quite good, what torso did you use?

But there is one tiny bit I'm missing. Shouldn't d'Artagnan be there, too? I would have liked to seem him ... but than It would be quite unfair for the Guardsmen  :pir_laugh2:

Nice, I like the way you reversed the colours from red to blue for the guards. :pir-classic:

Ilove the castle/tower itself, the wall is really nice and the tree is cool.

Great MOC, ACPin! I really like the tree, the ruins and the plantlife. There's a lot of good action going on, which I love. The only thing i think you should change is the heads - they look a little weird, all having the same head. And could you please post some more photos? I'd love to see this great piece of work from different angles. Well done, and thanks for sharing!

Great MOC! The small tower looks very well done and the tree is also well done. One question only, why the Cardinal's guards hats are on fire? :pir-tongue:

I really like the figures of the musketeers.
I guess that they will appear in a large number of excellent MOCs, such as this.
Indeed, great job! :pir-classic:

Wow! This is a great MOC with very cool figures. Well done.

I am using the new musketeers torso with white legs, white epaulettes, white backpack and a black tricorne hat as part of my French Royalist army.

I wondered what an army of musketeers would look like and you answered that question quite well!  :pir-grin:
As a fan of the Dumas books I am especially fond of this, and I like the use of the trans-neon orange plume instead of the expected red.

I would have preferred the solid red plumes, to me it makes their hats look on fire... Other then that, I was one of the people who wanted to see an army like this., so thanks for showing us.  :thumbup:

This is awesome! A classic representation of my favorite swashbucklers  :pir-classic:

This MOC would look fantastic with Brickarms rapiers, the little "buttons" at the tips of the LEGO version make it look more like a fencing foil than an actual sword to me. Nevertheless, this is a perfectly proportioned MOC and a perfect fit with the Pirates theme. Heck, I think Porthos was a pirate in the movie version with Charlie Sheen...

This is certainly a great MOC! I really love how you used the LEGO Rapier. It actually kinda funny because they're fighting with ballpoint Rapiers. Good job and keep up the good work buildin'!
