    ESPG has disappeared!

    I have two things: - A print of the rules - Permission from Steve Jackson to improve upon them I can make a new ESPG site if needed.

    Ooh! I love the rifle!
  3. Hey fellow AFOLs, I normally stick to the Pirate forum but I found a good deal on Toywiz I figured the military builders would like to hear about: Toywiz is selling the Toy Story LEGO jeep on sale for $2.99 here: http://www.toywiz.com/legotoystorygreenjeep.html It's not a whole set, just the Jeep. So if you want to enlarge your motor pool without shrinking your bank account too much this looks like a good option. Hope you found this useful, thanks.

    10210 Imperial Flagship - UPCOMING SET!!!

    This is beautiful! I love it! Very playable and it looks great. Isn't this the first ship-rigged (3 masted) Lego Pirates ship ever, too? I thought I was all done with getting large ships but I will be buying this...and I think I'll be Brickbeard's Bounty too now.

    General A's Big Bluecoat Army

    Pssst...one of your flag bearers has an upside down flag. :P

    The Capstan Inn

    This is OUTSTANDING! I have wanted to make something like this for the longest time but I haven't been able to get far. Your MOC is inspiring and really well done. Great job!

    HMS Rochhester

    I would have the flags flying the opposite direction...if the wind is in your sails, your flags will fly forward, not aft.

    My First Ship, WIP

    The reality of Lego Pirates, however, is that the vast majority of ships built are too small to even rate in anything but the lowest class under the old cannon-based class system. The class system from Evil Stevie's Pirate Game is much more applicable for our needs. Here's how it works: Class 1 - Small brick-built hulls like the small ship in the 6277 Imperial Trading Post Class 2 - Large brick-built hull or narrow (12-wide) with no center sections Class 3 - Narrow hull with 1 center section or wide (16 stud) hull with no center sections Class 4 - Narrow hull with 2 center sections or wide hull with 1 center section (Caribbean Clipper) Class 5 - Narrow hull with 3 center sections Class 6 - Wide hull with 2 center sections (Red Beard Runner, Brickbeard's Bounty) Class 7 - Wide hull with 3 center sections (Black Seas Barracuda, Skull's Eye Schooner) Class 8 - Wide hull with 4 center sections

    Not all of us are willing to deface our minifigs, Wellington.
  10. I would definitely NOT want to see: - Any new type of monkey or any non-natural creature (give us cool minifigs, not useless animals) - Zombie pirates or ghosts (the less supernatural the better) - Minifigs vs Monster sets like the Vikings (A wonderful key feature of the Pirates theme is the core fig vs fig dynamic between pirates and Imperials).

    My First Ship, WIP

    CREW: Class x 6 or 7. Your ship appears to be a class 7 (three hull middle sections) so that's 42 to 49. MINIMUM CREW: - 7 to manage the sails (equal to the ship's class) - 2 per cannon - 1 captain
  12. I'd like to see: - Mid-size narrow-hull ship for Imperials (blue torso version) like 6271 $49.99 - Modular coastal town with tavern. Think something like Sail n Fly Marina crossed with Medieval Market $99.99 - A small merchant ship like the one in 6277 - $9.99 to $14.99 - Jungle Island - something like Enchanted Island, with traps, natives, caves (could re-use Indiana Jones temple guards

    Return of the Spaniards

    While I like the idea of variety, I would much prefer more actual pirate ships, ports, and scenario islands than a new imperial armada faction. I agree that Imperial ships should feature a blue version of the new (red) Imperial Soldiers.

    Bluecoat in LEGO Battles trailer!

    I would love to see figs with this blue version of the new Imperial Soldier torso. I really like the red one -- the design of the torso doesn't need to be changed.

    Proof of Imperial soldiers being french

    For Bluecoats and redcoats, I go by the Lego version - the Imperial Soldiers (blue and new red) and the Imperial Guard are just different uniforms of the same anti-pirate faction. They're just "Imperials," not French or British. I do, however, use the Imperial Armada guys as a Spanish themed opposing faction since they're so different. It would be interesting for the person at Lego who was responsible for the blue to red color change to explain the logic behind it.
