You have lots of troops Mr. Tordenskjold! Nice Red-coat army.

Nice (and large) crew. I'm looking forward for seeing some picts with the crew on your ship.

Have I ever shown my Africa Corps?
Well, here's a pict.

Those guys are all shaved very nicely I see!  X-D

I do wonder if it was normal if the soldiers had facial hair in those days... Because I believe soldiers of now need to be shaved....

You really have a lot of imperial soldiers Bonaparte!
I wish I had that much...


Have a nice day,

Mr Tiber

Phred, if you want to have a privateering buisness, just havesome impeirals on board in addition to the pirates. My men have had alliances like this, but the pirates turned to mutiny, and we sentenced to exacuted. Sad the way that one turned out, but I doubt it would happen on your ship if the pirates and impeirals decided to forge a Privateering agreement.
Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)

I created the "Africa Corps" after seeing the movie Zulu.
I think some officers of the British army had facial hair. Maybe the officers didn't have to follow this rule?
I''m not sure actually. Have to see that movie again.

What sad sad story.
Poor pirates      8-|
I hope that don't happen to my pirates. X-D

I've been slowly building up my imperials with each BL order i try to get a couple.
Just found 2 blue coats and 1 red coat for 2.50 USD each.
I don't have a lot of money (at all) so i can just get a few at a time each time i get some bricks. X-D

Fear not!  We have a How to Perform a Batch Image Resize Tutorial which allows to resize one or many images at once.  Making them smaller will reduce the grainess and allow you to post them right into the thread.

Someone can do the first one for you so you know I mean.  Mr Tiber, Bonaparte, Phred?  Who wants some fun?   :skel1:

Welcome Shinohara!
You have a nice army.
A rough count tells me there are about 80 Imperial Soldiers.
Are you still expanding your army?

Here's a resized picture:

My army is almost Identical to Bonaparte's except I only have 8 Cuirassiers and 12 Mameluke's, and one less Artillery piece.  Also my Golden Eagles weren't spray painted on gold crome but painted on with my goldish Warhammer 40k paint.  

I have also run into that 'no shako's left' problem which will hopefully be resolved.

I would also really want to see some pictures of your army.
Especially of the Mameluke's. I've been thinking of buying some extra of these.

Before I got into pirates I was mostly into Castle type stuff like Adventurers so I used this guy on a white horse with bley saddle for Mameluke's. http://www.bricklink...em.asp?M=adv030 And used a cutlass as the Sabre.

HOLY SMOKES!  X-O That's a huge army! It's big to me because I don't own a single pirate set. If you guys think that's small----I can only wonder how many minifigs you have....

From what part of Indonesia do you hale?  I know very little about Indonesia besides that the country is made up of several islands, and despite the relatively small land mass, it is one of the largest countries in terms of population in the world!

You have a nice collection of blue coats here!  I prefer the red guys myself, but this is the start of a grand army!

In another thread I found a pirate picture which leads the way to a lot of napoleonic troops including

- english artillery
- french artillery
- french cavalry
- scots
- french infantry
- musicians
- ...

And finally here's a picture of my actual collection of Austrian and French troops:

Welcome to our forum!

I live in Jakarta .. which is the capital city .. most people knows indonesia as Bali  :-D .. which is where I grew up..... I'd love to goto US one day, to see NFL games in person  *wub*

I prefer blue coat because at the time I start collecting, red coat were extremely expensive and hard to get (still now I guess) and blue coat is slightly cheaper...
