During Christmas I decided (finally) that my Series 2 Spartans needed something, not having any of those new column pieces a Temple was out of the question, instead I tried something new, a rather unusual thing to make from LEGO, a Trireme. These were used during the 5th Century BC by Spartans during the Greco-Persian wars. Mine is based off a real replica off one (loosely) called Olympias. I think my favourite thing about this ship is the fact that very few people have replicated a Trireme in LEGO, It makes me feel unique
So here it is.
The ram at the front is used to smash into other ships and hopefully make a hole in the hull. Triremes usually had eyes painted on the bow.
This ship has 60 Minifigs to row it, they range from Darth Vader to Father Christmas.
The back section of the ship uses a viking hull, the shape was perfect for the back, though I needed to add a bit extra to the sides using a bit of sloping and SNOT in order to cover up a big gap.
This is my favourite shot of the ship, probably because it's the only semi-clear one I have
I hope you enjoyed seeing my slightly unconventional LEGO ship, Comments and Criticism are welcome
