    I'm really enjoying these early 17th century musketeer style mini-figures

    I think the weapon you are asking about is the BrickArms Rapier. I just got a few after seeing it used by one of Captain Braunsfeld's minifigures in the 2015 LEGO Pirates rumor thread. Link: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=91306&st=975#entry2103187

    New Decals for Castle torso's

    I think you are right about the front being lower to cover more of the chain mail. However, your work is awesome as is.
  4. All sound good. Looking around at designs, I think I will need a lot of dark bley (and or red/brown) plates to break up the black. I should have enough black pieces, except perhaps for the bow. Tumblehome is a must. It looks like there are a lot of ways to accomplish it, I'll have to see what I can pull from bins. Where should the inverted slopes go? I can't really think of a way to make them look nice. Is there a MOC that does what you say that includes closeups or LDD files? The stern in the last version was not really complete. I had hoped to extend the ship another two hull pieces and build a two story aft castle, so I did not spend much time on the end but you are spot on regarding what should be done. If anyone else has some advice, I'm all ears!

    MOC: Pirate ship Irukandji

    I also really like the captain's cabin. The kitchen is also really nicely done.

    The Ammonite

    You can always build your guns out of bricks.

    Rubber-Stamping Torsos

    I wonder what exactly your setup is like. If you do not feel like it would be intrusive, could you post a picture of your "pad printing machine" or say more about it? Whatever the setup is, you are doing great work with it.

    HMS Scorpion… again, a MOC

    I don't think you should feel any pressure to have a larger fleet. It is a good fleet as is, and the iterations are a good way to refine and improve it. I don't have a single complete ship and do not have room to keep a fleet any larger than yours, and your progress is inspiration to me. One of the reasons I asked to see the earlier iterations was to see how things changed and get ideas for simpler techniques or techniques that had different constraints. The last LEGO sets I played with prior to coming back There is a BirckFair New England in Manchester in May but I don't much about it.

    Since everyone seems to be stating their opinion on the bandanna, based on the pictures I think the new one looks fine except from ahead. I found the old bandanna perfectly fine, but am not opposed to replacing it. As far as the old monkeys go, I love them but they are a bit large. I'm a bit confused as for the lack of U.S. release information, but I don't really know how TLG operates.
  10. I like how there is enough room to set up a gun crew. Also it is amazing the detail and scale in general.

    I plan on putting together a unit of 10 soldiers with the black torso with breastplate, sort of a Dearth's Head Hussar and Cuirassier hybrids. From my bins: I have 10 blue coats, 8 red coats, and a admiral/governor for each, a daughter for each governor/admiral, and a few Union soldiers from the Old West. I don't know how many more are in there.

    Here are the figures that I have currently put together. I just got some new heads today, so there are more than when I posted the pirate army in the army thread, also close up pictures. Jack Sparrow and the Cook are just PotC figures As is Barbossa Who appears twice. Blackbeard and Scrum are also just PotC figures.

    Blue Coats, Red Coats, or Green Coats

    I have to go with blue as well. When I was a kid they did have command of the BSB.
  14. Hmm... a lot of what I already have to print has a lot of white in it, with foofy cravats/jabots or just the shirts. I think if the extend the color of the torso around the image that should make it easier to cut out and have no white around the edged, that makes sense, right?

    Where are the videos? I don't see them at the sight just the map, the products, characters, games, and downloads. Edit: Thanks Robert8, I found it now.
