A good looking crew! (OK, maybe a scary looking crew, but that's good for pirates!) I like your use of the CMF swashbuckler torso for the sailing master, and the gunpowder weapons squad looks ready for action.

Obviously it'd be impossible for any man, but I thought it could be a hilarious detail xD

Is that a custom torso on Washington? If not, where's it from?

Washington's torso is a sticker from BrickForge.

That would be a fearsome crew of dead and living pirates to fight.

But the redcoats seem well prepared - it seems that they have joined forces with the bluecoats.

Oh you are absolutely right Faladrin, shame on me! 

In my defense, all the monkeys and most of the other animals didn't want to come to do the family photo, as they are already placed on an WIP MOC island  :pir-laugh:

Hello! This is my first post on this thread, I have a largish pirate crew I'm working on, each with unique heads, torsos and either hat or hair, but I'm not quite done yet. In the mean time I thought I'd post the start of my armies. Each will again have a unique face, but all will have the same uniform and hat, except for the Captains, who tend to have a printed version of the regular troops. 

 

First up my British Redcoats:

_20191001_151000

As the Redcoats are my biggest army, I've split the troops into white and red epaulettes for a bit of variety, nine reds and thirteen whites. The King George's soldier from the PotC line serves as Captain, with the Admiral/General wearing dark blue. 

 

Dutch, Spanish and French Bluecoats:

_20191001_151054

 

The Dutch were my last army to design. I had three of the Pirates II Governer torsos which I thought would work well as Dutch troops, their Captain wears the Pirates III Governer torso. The brown epaulettes were the only unused colour I had left, and the Shakos were the last variant of hat available. 

The Spanish are based on their appearance in On Stranger Tides. I'm not sure if this is particularly accurate, I thought Spain was associated with yellow, but the Pirates II captain torso was one I had a few of and I think it looks quite smart. The Captain is the only original Pirates torso I'm using. 

The French Bluecoats have just had the blue epaulettes added, with the CMF musketeer for a Captain. 

I am planning on five troops for each of my smaller armies, I just need one more Spanish torso and two more Dutch ones. Here are my WIP Imperial forces. 

_20191001_151133

 

I haven't gone for the most accurate look, mostly distinct and varied forces.

 

I'd just like to check if all of these armies would have been active in the Caribbean in the early 1700s? Also, would the Portuguese, or anyone else, have been in the Caribbean as well?

Here's mine! Most are crew members that I had originally done some time ago, with some adjustments made. I then made a few non-crew members while I was in the groove. Forgive the picture quality on a few of these! Sorry for the generic names.

Amazing. Where do you have all this torsos from? I see them for the very first time. nearly all of them.

Here is my crew - well, the crew of the privateer Lemuria, currently stranded on a desert island somewhere in the Seven Seas…

My WIP armies. Each head is unique to it's minifigure, as is each hairpiece/hat and torso, unless they are a uniform.

British:

_20191101_122655

Each face is clean shaven. I'd like to mix in a few more neutral/angry faces. I divided my forces in two, one with red epaulettes and the other with white. They are lead by a James Norrington-type, with a lieutenant with the King George's Soldier torso.

 

French, Dutch and Spanish:

_20191101_102230

 My smaller forces, the French have moustaches/stubble, the Dutch have full beards and the Spanish have fancy beards. I need a few more Dutch torsos and epaulettes.

 

Pirates of the Caribbean:

_20191101_122846

L-R Governor Swann, Lord Cutler-Beckett, Barbossa, Will Turner, Jack Sparrow, Elizabeth Swann, Marty and Cotton. My Gibbs is split up amongst Harry Potter figures right now. Governer Swann and Cutler Beckett, like the Norringtonesque leader of the British Army work just as well as non-PotC characters. I'd love a better face for Jack though.

_20191101_123514

Pintel and Ragetti. I'd love to get the Shakespeare CMF hair for Pintel.

 

Other Pirates in Media:

_20191101_122920

Edward Kenway from Assassin's Creed Black Flag. The hood should be white, or use the Henry Turner hair.

 

_20191101_122901

Anne Bonny, Mary Read, Jack Rackham, Blackbeard, Charles Vane, Black Bart, Hornigold and Woodes Rogers. All are based loosely on their appearance in either the Black Sails TV show or Assassin's Creed Black Flag. Stede Bonnet and Ed Lowe are yet to come.

 

Pirates:

_20191101_122828

My cartoonish pirates, the captain is in red, the three in blue around him are the bosun, quatermaster and the navigator. The doctor is wearing green and the helmsman is next to him in grey. The rest are general crew members with a poor marooner on the far right. The CMF scalleywag and 2015 cook are needed to complete the line up though, and I need to get a carpenter.

 

_20191101_122740

Some more realistic pirates, with some from North Africa, West Africa, India, Japan, China, Singapore and more. For Europeans I would use some of my townsfolk.

 

Townsfolk:

DSC_0181

Governer's Daughter, Harbourmaster, Priest, Judge, Teacher, Blacksmith, Scientist, Shipwright

 

_20191101_164025

Two Fishermen, Store owner, Journalist, Trader, Barman

DSC_0184

General Male Townsfolk

 

_20191101_164045

General Female Townsfolk. Some of these will be going to other historical MOCs, but I thought I'd get a shot of all the ladies together.

 

Islanders:

_20191101_122641

My smallest army, but I've got plans to bring the number up to about ten.

 

 

Aside from adding a few more figures here and there, and possibly adding characters from Treasure Island, these are my finished Pirate figs.
