[SR - Challenge III - Cat D] No Survivors

Recommended Posts

June 620, Somewhere along the northern coast of El Oleonda

 

The Hephaestus, a frigate crewed by a mercenary group of Sea Rats, and carrying a Letter of Marque from Carno, spotted a lone Lotii War junk of the coast of El Oleonda. Fearing the greater firepower of the enemy, the Lotii changed coarse to make for the nearest protected bay. In the ensuing chase, the Lotii, being unfamiliar with the waters, ran their ship into a reef, where it subsequently broke up. The crew of the Hephaestus, hauled to, and sent their launch into the shallow waters to survey the wreckage.

Upon reaching the wreckage, the captain spots some remaining Lotii crew clinging to floating debris.

The Captain surveys the scene, and orders his men "To arms! Send every last one of them to the depths! There can be no survivors!"

The men take aim, and fire upon the Lotii.

"Well done men, an extra ration of rum for all of ye! And one less lot of these blasted mongrels on the seas" exclaimed the Captain, and they rowed back to their ship, their mission complete.

I agree with BD, the longboat looks very good. 

Shooting at the survivors, it's...very piratey.:pir-grin:

Thanks! Pretty happy with the boat. It was kind of a proof of concept for me, will probably build some class 1 or 2 gunboats and sloops using this technique in the future.

 

And you know how the saying goes.....Dead Men Tell No Tales :pir-skel:

A nice longboat and a the story is just exactly what we expect from SR...

 

Just a flat : the SR captain and some crew looks very clean for scurvy scoundrels

Correction : they are dressed in blue to cover it up... the history will remember that Oleon finished off shipwrecked lotii near El Oleonda... very piratey indeed :thumbup:

SR will deny any knowledge...

I love the boat! My only suggestion is some transparent studs around the survivors.

I understand your enthusiasm in procuring OL uniforms for your guys, though anyone wearing our uniforms are expected to act properly.

Oh, so I have to give up my false-flag project of redcoat scalp-hunters and skinners? What a pity! :pir_laugh2: Pun apart, is nice to see some organized groups and original variations in the free traders' faction, something similar to @Kwatchi's Ashen Guard or @Roadmonkeytj's Charlatan Bay militia... real pirates never organized actual states or military units, but a rich merchant or landlord could have tried to establish private overseas empires, even if nobody did that.

About the build: the boat, as others said, is very nice, as well as minifig posing. Adding some trans-clear or blue plates here and there could have been nice, but the water works well anyways for me. Nice job, even if that unnecessary cruelty is... well... great! :pir_laugh2:

Nice row boat.

The use of Oleon uniform to diguise an act of piracy is well thought... and really Piratey ! :pir-vader:

Thank you! I was really happy with how it turned out.

While I can see how it could be seen as an Oleonaise uniform, upon closer inspection you can find it is but a simple blue jacket over a striped red and white shirt. But, any conclusions that may be drawn concerning said uniforms  cannot be helped, especially when such barbaric actions have been taken :pir_laugh2:

Thank you! Took me a good while to considered some sort of naval encounter that didn't involve larger ships.

Thanks! And I just got in a Bricklink order with some clear studs. I was limited on time to finish the build, but now with the deadline extended to July, I may go back and retouch some parts and edit with new pictures.

Any conclusions that have been arrived at concerning the uniforms are solely placed on the persons drawing the conclusions......

That being said....such rumors will not be denied :pir-grin:

Precisely what I am going for....while not Pirates per say, these men prefer the freedoms offered them by the Sea Rat faction, while still maintaining a sense of order and heirarchy. Many of them were indeed citizens of other nations, who grew tired of the laws (and tyranny) imposed by their governments. 

With the deadline extended, I'll probably re-shoot the scene with a few improvements in a few days.

I can neither confirm nor deny that was the intention....but by all means, spread the word! :pir-huzzah2:
