Ahoy!

I'm currently in the process of moving house so had literally a handful of lego at my disposal for this last-minute entry (which just happened to include Sebeus' figure!), so I admit its not an award-winning entry, but hopefully will add to the conflict!

I like it because is simple, neat, clean... nice comic!

about the history... auch!... the size of the red fleet is as big as the pirates and they don't seem to be fighting between them... :hmpf_bad: very suspicious :hmpf_bad:

It was a great plan for the bluecoats, but not good enough. :devil:

Very nice idea! Poor Sebeus didn't think of nailing the flag into position. Well at least that's what a smart redcoat would do.

Neat!Even if we got shot,it still proves how stupid pirates and redcoats are!How come they both see one ship between them and none of them fires at it?They are so stupid that they dont use telescope to check the crew??

Nicely done :thumbup: short, simple and intelligent story... good to see that Rifleman Mazin did survive the sinking as there's no hat of his floating on the water... yeah, riflemen are unsinkable :laugh:

Right! Since you escaped and gave word to the rest of us, looks like the Bluecoat fleet is headed to battle! :classic:

On the contrary, what really happened was that Mazin was a cowardly deserter and left Sebeus to be blown into bits. Reporting back to Blue camp was just a facade. :hmpf_bad: :tongue:

@Duck awesome!! Yet I too think its's very strange the reds 'n pirates do not fire upon each other, so if we assume they had some kind of treaty, then why should Sebeus bother to use a double-sided flag?

Glad you like it, on the first picture however I do explain that the redcoats and pirates were "engaged in an intense battle" - so they certainly are firing at each other!
