    Custom made Mardier officer

    Nope, straight Vallejo (I use the historical range mostly, same stuff, less flashy names) onto a Yellow torso, no undercoat. Only thing added was a bit of Gloss Varnish afterwards (Coat D`Arms, manually brushed, so no spray can) to give it the blinky blinky look of a Lego print

    Custom made Mardier officer

    Thanks. The steady hand is a result of 20 years playing with tiny little soldiers (starting as most at Warhammer and ending up in the American Civil War as the decennia passed by ) It`s not that the Mardier's ARE spanish, I just envisioned that them way as the other main nations of the age of sail where present in the game as player factions (England, France and The Netherlands), AND I had vague recollections of an obscure Napoleonics campaign which had yellow spanish uniforms. (Turns out they are mostly the Dragoons like those of Numancia and Almansa). This one just fitted the "pattern" of using some red for contrast. Reason I didn`t take fleshie heads and hands is that my "regular" sailing crews are yellows (old pirate lines etc), hence I passed over using yellow legs (like the picture of the inspiration) and went for the white.
  5. Well, this is something new, my very first ever customised LEGO torso. And it is one for the nation of Mardier, in the Brethren of the Broken Seas. With my skills in graphic software being limited, making decals no option, a PAD Printer being way out of my (willing to spend) budget and going to my regular printers every for one or two torsos (whom I can`t design... so that`s a bit tricky) I was looking for a solution. And then it hit me... my old paints from my wargaming days! I had no idea if the good old Vallejo`s would "catch" on LEGO ABS plastic.... but they do without any problem. I wanted to base the Mardier officer on the spaniards as their nations main colour is yellow, so after some research I found this old template of a spanish Dragoon from the Napoleonic era. I tried my best with my now 5 year rusty painting skills to recreate the red and white detailing on the torso, and some glossy varnish later I was happy with the result. The biggest thing perhaps is that LEGO prints are single colour, so I had to refrain from using the what is known in wargaming as "3 tone system", providing shade and highlighting to every colour. But the torso works really well under the "2 metres rule", which is the average distance a wargame figure of 25mm (about the size of a LEGO minifigure) is "seen at" when on a table. I`m defintily going to do more of these, and the Napoleonic Italian forces sure have my eye to make a unit with for Brick Wars in november. The downside? I`m really considering cutting strongly in my LEGO time and budget and rebuild and patch up my 28mm ACW army once again, and spend more time again at my old club.
  6. The 69th New York thanks you
  7. Where do those muskets come from? They would look gorgeous in "something something" not BoBS related I`m building

    [MOC] 1821: Battle of Dervenakia

    I love this build, those historical battles always capture my intrest and having one of the (for western europe) lesser known ones is always intresting to read a bit about
  9. Nevertheless there where three warships in that last Eslandolan auction that where the property of a Corrington mayor
  10. I know the feeling, the 200% rate for a 4T2 made her a pretty expensive little boat lol

  12. A build that originated from two very different origin points, my first complete Company for BoBS has been recruited and stationed in Quinnsville for the defence of the town. While I "bought" the troops for the game a week or two ago, I finally came round to make this small build for them. Add to that the fact that I`ll be running a Lego wargaming demostration at a wargame convention in november, where they will probably face off against Star Wars droids and other very different forces... and I had two motivating factors of putting the troops together. Dear Lord Smaugton, I have well received your letter concerning the growing tensions in the Cocovia region. I understand your concerns that the neighbouring military harbour might not be swift enough to response in case someone decided to place a raid on the setttlement, and how you look towards solidifying your defences. I have conversed with our uncle on the matter, and he agreed that our house should look at it's own defence and intrests as well apart from those for the crown, or for our trading partners. To that end, I am underway with a full company of soldiers, who will be called the 1st Quinnsville Fusiliers from now on, under my command. I hope to have a good glass of wine, and one of those "coffee's" you tell so much about, swiftly. Your cousin, Lord Emmerick Woosterbatton
  13. The Quinnsville Chronicler, issue 10 The HMS Pendragon sails! For non-disclosed reasons, the citizens of Quinnsville where witness to a strange sight this afternoon. The HMS Pendragon has cast het moorings and came out of harbour, setting sail for the first time. It seemed she was on a northward course, but no-one seems to have an idea why she has left her berth. May she sail swift and carry her colours with dignity and honour!

    [COR-FB] The BoC

    My dearest sir Summerridge, The bank of Corrington should then find itself now in the safeguarding of 1000 of my perhaps not so honestly earned doubloons. I have given my clerk the order to write the letter of credit out to "BoC" so I take it should be arriving correctly as we speak?

    [COR-FB] The BoC

    Dear mister @Bregir, While I tried to open an account with the BoC and make a modest deposit to the account for, I don`t know, say 1000 doubloons, I seem to fail to find the destination account labelled as BoC or the likes. Now while this might be the result of my cheese for brains and lack of accountancy skills that I overlook it in the immense list of entrepreneurs, of could it be that the account isn`t in the summary yet so I cannot write my bill of crediting yet?
