  1. After spending more than 2 years investing both time and money into his businesses and properties in Queenston, Killian yearned for adventure, the very essence that had drawn him to Queenston. With both his ships The Parvus and The Delphinus Orca acquired for the coast guard by Mayor Edward Scarver, he embarked on the construction of a new vessel, Pandora. As he gazes back at what he has accomplished, memories of Queenston linger, but the shifting winds now directs his ambitions to the vast sea ahead. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Worked on it for a while with the rigging taking half of the time and also beeing busy last year. I took most of the inspiration is from this ship modell. I had to make all the ropes and rigging in Blender before exporting them as parts to Studio. The ship was created with the idea of building it with real bricks. I and @Justsomebrix have already started the construction.

    [MOC] Fishing Boat

    This little fishing boat is about to set sail! This cute boat is the fishing vessel of Pablo, an old bearded fisherman who loves spending his days fishing and sailing in the open sea. The boat is equipped with everything you need for deep-sea fishing. Theo, Pablo's best friend, is waiting for him on the pier with his kitten to find out what fish he has caught. About the set This brick-built vessel amazes for the extreme similarity to the real ones and for the attention to detail. The set is composed by the hull, the cabin and a front compartment to store the caught fish. Two minifigures are included in the diorama, Pablo and Theo. A small pier completes the set which looks like a nice postcard. The boat is built with many special and fun techniques, for sure you will love to build it! The cabin of the boat can be lifted up to reveal the engine compartment beneath it. The front compartment can also be lifted and there is a small storage area underneath. Fishing Boat is on BRICKLINK DESIGNER PROGRAM 5 and could become an official set! It now needs your support, if you like it you can support it! With your support, hopefully we can turn the Fishing Boat into an actual LEGO BDP set. Thank you all for your support, comments and shares!

    [MOC] Lego City Spaceship

    Another 2024 lego 'city' moc. Stuff is really wilding this year.
  4. Hello I thought I should share my most recent creation. A 64 gun 3rd rate ship of the line! Please let me know what you think!
  5. Magnus Gudmund, Lord of Spróggefjell in southeast Mitgardia, had recently had his farmlands raided by a band of thieves. Rumour has it they took to the coast, so Gudmund hired a group of soldiers to patrol along the Southern Shores. So far, the search has been unsuccessful. This build is a modified version of my Summer Joust collab entry (see spoiler) from three months ago. I was happy with the ship, but the water and terrain wasn't convention-worthy. So I tore down the water, I acquired a lot of dark blue tiles (just barely enough, though!) to cover the new base, which I shortened on both front and end. I finished the creation halfway into August, but there was a problem: no camera! I had been borrowing my sister's camera for years, but at last she permanently reclaimed it, so I had to get my own. And then holidays happened, and other LEGO projects, a job application, Skaerbaek Fan Weekend, LEGO World Utrecht... but this weekend I finally spent some time figuring out my new camera (Nikon D3300) and taking pictures. Little note: I didn't bother changing the figures of the collab, but I did change the story to fit Guilds of Historica. It's not much, but it's something. Glory to the Guilds! C&C appreciated!
  6. Hi! Today I start my new project: Winter in the Raven's Wharf This will be my biggest MOC to date and there are quite a few topics to cover I plan to build a medieval port somewhere in the far north. I did surveys on YouTube and Instagram, I asked what season to choose... ...Winter won! The project will consist of several parts, the whole thing will be divided into several baseplates. The size of 60x150 studs is planned. On the waterfront, I will want to build a lot of buildings for residents, but also military ones. The main attraction, however, will be the large ship I'm already building There are several inspirations, I will definitely turn on the Witcher 3 game more than once to explore Novigrad and look for interesting ideas. The main ship will have about 1500 parts and I will definitely make a PDF instructions for it. I've already built a small boat for a fisherman, I'll probably build more of these. I'm going to need a lot of parts, especially for building water. Since I'm building winter, I'll want to use the new animals from the City Arctic series - I'll add some seals, but I'm tempted to add a killer whale as well. You can learn more about this project from my video, link below. I will be glad if you write what you think about this project, but also write your ideas what I can build here :) In the next episode I will definitely want to show the finished ship, I will have to make sails and instructions.

    [WIP] Full Hull Battleship

    This project actually started around 9 years ago... So a few weeks ago I began anew. Since I no longer have the ambition to build a Black Pearl I went a little bigger with this one. I did not use half plate offsets like I did on the previous ship, to keep it simple. This results in the curvature looking a bit rough, especially at bow and aft. Since it's completely black I don't think that will be of much concern. A brown/reddish brown/dark brown hull is the dream but given the amount of slopes required, it just wouldn't be affordable. For the superstructure I will recycle my unfinished Lucretia II (second version of Lucretia), the big red one in the back of the picture; That one wasn't going to work out anyway, feel free to disagree but it is my feeling that a prefab hull just isn't suited to support complete double gun deck ships. I won't attempt that again at least. With a beam of 26 studs and a keel length of 100 studs, this ship will be the biggest one I've ever built. In terms of prefab hull reference she'll be the equivalent of a 9-midsection ship. Unlike the previous version, there will be no hold interior, the main reason for that is that, because of accessibility issues on a complex ship like this, it would simply be a waste of parts as no one would ever get to see that interior anyway. I decided to use the lower hold area for more structural reinforcements. The whole hull is a shell resting on the keel and supported by a series of bulkheads throughout the length of the ship. I'm currently looking into some weak parts on the aft but for the rest it is pretty sturdy already. I'm out of SNOT bricks for the moment, to complete the lower bulkheads but the plan is to completely close off the lower hold with the orlop deck (except for a few openings for the masts). While it would be perfectly possible to build interior on the orlop deck, I won't waste parts on that, given previously mentioned reason. A few planks in the center with a ladder to the gun deck at most. I haven't decided yet whether there will be 2 or 3 dedicated gun decks, I think she's a bit on the small side to become a 1st rate but we'll see how it evolves.

    [MOC] "The Dionaea" ship

    The Dionaea This is the new ship for my character in Lego Pirate RPG “Pavillon Noir” ☠️ ~ ~ ~ "We were sailing north towards the great lighthouse of the Empire. To land discreetly, we took the risk of going through the reefs. Sails furled, we were making slow progress. Two soldiers captured in Nouvelle-Nantes were to guide us through the rocky peaks leading to the coast."
  11. +++ UPDATE 27/December/2016 +++ Happy holidays eurobricks! I have some new pictures of my Venator. You can check out my flickr for more pictures. I will upload more as soon as possible. First post also edited. greetings Kommander +++ UPDATE 3/December/2016 +++ Long time no see eurobricks! Today my Venator enters the sky above the ship yards of Rothana Heavy Engineering. As the project manager I proudly present you the capital ship “ATELLES”- a Venator class star destroyer. Back in 2005 when I saw the Star Wars Epi. 3 starting sequence in the theaters – I was like “I really have to build one of these giants!” Then a few years later and already earning my own money I started the wip. The plan was building a venator bigger than the Lego ISD (10030). While processing the project there were 2 points of massive improvements. Each time I change the size and the new version was bigger than the old one. The building time on the last version of the Venator I´m showing you in this thread was only about 2 years. Now be at university the time has come to finish this ship. Over the whole 7 years I ordered about 100 times at Additional to these orders I used a lot of my own bricks in storage. I don’t know how many bricks I used for the Venator. It have to be something above 45000 pieces with a weight of 65 kg. The construction of the inner structure and the frame is basically like the #10030 IDS. A structure made out of technic bricks carrying the whole ship. This technique is easy to scaling up to big dimensions. The Venator´s of Erik Varsegi and Iomedes were always leaders in supersized star destroyers and a good orientation for my project. At one point my Venator should be one of those as well and I destroyed the old version and made a bigger one. This Venator how hitting the length of 220 cm x 117 cm x 68 cm. A bit smaller than the others. However, the thing was building this ship as accurate as possible. Some details of the origin Venator from the Movie has been changed or replaced with own ideas like the frame structure at the surface. The overall impression has to match and looks smooth. For those they want to know about construction details here we go. In the middle of the ship is a massive string - the ship´s “backbone”. Different sections like the hangar or the thrusters are connected with it. The inner structure mostly consists of technic bricks, pins and plates. Simultaneously I build the “wing”-plating because the wedge-plates with their angles restrict the shape of it. And as you know the plating is a bit bigger so it can overlap the frame. The thickness of the plating is 5 layers of plates. One slope underneath and above the string create the first important angle. Each one has left and right technic bricks as well. On those the wings can be attached. Unfortunately I secured the underneath-plating with some wires because the weight was too much and I couldn´t find any alternative to fix this problem. It is the only thing that isn’t Lego. Glue also never touched this project. In every thruster is also a solid string with technic bricks. Rings consists of 8 hinge-elements are the basement for the use of round bricks for the shape. A unique technique which also looks pretty nice. To counteract a misalignment of the long thrusters I decided to install them with an increasing angle upwards. And as expected it works pretty well. The command tower as well as other sections can be detached easy. Reason behind this is of course for the transport. Next step is to exhibit this giant on events in Germany. Maybe I manage to change and improve some things unstill the first event. Finally the last step is selling this thing dissembled in components or complete as Moc. More pictures: - Kommander +++ Original Post +++ Hello Eurobricks, my name is Philipp and i`m a member of (IdS) and of course german :) Today i`m here introducing my work in progress UCS Venator. Some of you maybe discovered my litte turrents on flickr in various groups. At the beginning of the building progress in year 2008 i started with a size around 150 cm in lenght, but by passing the years i scale up the size to the Venator im showing you now. This ship hitting a lenght of 220 cm and has a width of 120 cm. Dimensions like Erik Varszegi`s Venator. Maybe a litte bit smaller. Btw. here you can see a picture of my first Venatorbuild. Looks kinda cute, isn`t it? Most things are finished...thrusters, guns, superstructure. I really can see the finish line. But this update/post is only for an overview. That means unfortunately no closeup pictures. The next and last milestone is the underside armor. In the meantime i`m going to fill the gaps and there`re still bricks that need to be changed. Before i forget; this is my flickr account: and here the original thread on IdS: http://www.imperiumd...estroyer/page-4 - Kommander
  12. Recently HMS La Belone joined the fleet of Commodore Willem van Baarle in Mesabi Landing. After a fierce battle Commodore Van Baarle needed more ships to join his private fleet to defend Corrington's land and sea against some scumback pirates. Now, another ships arrived at the outer harbor of Mesabi Landing. It is the mighty HMS Black Prince. This class 7 vessel is another addition to the growing fleet. Captain of the HMS Black Prince, Harford 'The Shadow' Hayhurst walked across the jetty to the harbor master. The harbor master shook his hand and welcomed him to Mesabi Landing: "Good to have you here! This new ship is a welcome addition to Commodore Van Baarle's fleet!" Capt. Hayhurst nodded in agreement. "On the way we came across a 'man-of-war', a large ship with a double cannon deck. It is on its way to join the fleet! We saw several ships with a Corrington flag coming this way, also. Reinforcements are on their way!" Collab build with @boeing_787_8_dreamliner.

  13. Recently Capt. Willem van Baarle returned in Mesabi Landing from his pirate-hunting mission. He was leading a squadron out of Port Woodhouse that included his frigate the HMS Phama, the man-o-war Semilliante and the HMS Melampus. Van Baarle found his prey in the East Prio Sea when they encountered Kane's new flagship, Perla de Labuan, a class 9 galleon, leading eight(!) other ships under his black flag. After a fierce naval battle, the battle ended in a draw. The HMS Phama sent Paraiso to the sharks, but unfortunately his HMS Melampus did not survive the battle and was shot by a Black Flag ship. Capt. Willem van Baarle: Now, back in Mesabi Landing, Van Baarle was licking his wounds. He was determined to expand his fleet with a number of new high class vessels. To get an even stronger fleet, more ships are needed, which requires a special commander. Van Baarle's good friend Baron Peter Nash, a wealthy man, provided this investment. Captain Willem van Baarle was promoted to Commodore... and if the fleet grew fast enough, he might even become Admiral soon... Let's kick some Black Flag *sses! --- Collab build with @boeing_787_8_dreamliner. He did a major part of this build.

  14. Greetings, shipwrights. Whether a novice, an apprentice, a master, or a veteran shipwright, following the process of others, sharing your own, and giving and receiving feedback can help everyone improve. What's the point? This is just a place for all of us liberally to post WIP's for feedbacks, tips, suggestions, and questions, without otherwise littering the BoBS forum with WIP's. You can post just one step in the process, or several over a period. It's all up to you. So I am working on a vessel/ship - what do I do? Post one or more pictures, questions, ship-plans, descriptions, etc. here, and hopefully someone will step in with some wonderful advice. At least, I expect to do so. I know NOTHING about ships - can I comment, and how do I do? Everyone with something constructive to say can comment. No need to be a scholar in historic vessels, medieval carpentry or sail making. Sometimes it might just be aesthetics, a crazy idea, a suggestion for a technique, use of a specific brick, or whatever you can think of. Just keep it nice and constructive. In return, builders posting here will pwomise not to take offense! I'd suggest tagging the builder you are commenting on. But I am not an expert - the arrogant elite will laugh at my puny attempts at shipbuilding! First of all, the arrogant elite was not invited. In fact, they have been given specific instructions to go back to their fancy little elitist coffee houses to talk about how brilliant they are. Secondly, regarding puny attempts, take a look at my first attempt at a ship just two and a half years ago... Well, you really don't have to look. Move along... Nothing to see here... The rather obvious point being, we all start somewhere, and no matter where you start, or how steep your learning curve is. The only requirement is that you want to share your process, learn from others, share your ideas, and/or improve. Soooo, is this something official? What will I gain from participating? EGS bonuses? HAH! This is merely me gone rogue - and I may hang from my toes for it! No official bonuses here. However, I'd like to see a bit more focus on the process and techniques of building here, and I think ships is an interesting place to start. This is, however, quite likely to be replaced, superseded, or added to by something official at some point in the future. Who manages this and keeps the record? Manages? Keeps records? Bwahahaha - forget it! Just post your WIP's and comments. Don't overthink it! ________________________________________________________________________ Kick off! Oooohkay, here we go: I have been working on a 4th rate, circa 50 guns on two decks. I present to you: The HMS Endeavour. Started here: Went here: And have ended here: She is supposed to be the first in a series of 4th rates designed for colonial waters. A 4th rate is a small ship of the line between 46 and 60 guns, just above frigate size. This one is (IC) specifically designed to serve as flagship for colonial squadrons, sailing in consort with frigates and sloops. Looking forward to hearing your comments! And to see your WIP's!
  15. April 622, Somewhere not far from Seawatch, New Haven Sea "Hoist the mainsail, ya scurvy dogs!" - the captain was yelling at the top of his lungs, but hearing him in the whistle of the wind was still very difficult- "Let's see if those fishing boats wanna dance with us!". The "fishing boats" had just rounded the promontory, one mile behind, and were closing in fast... but as soon as they left the cover of the shore the waves started to hit them with their full strength. The sailors of the Stormchaser laughed wildly as the three junks started to swing and list dangerously, the sails flapping out of control: they could imagine the chaos, the soldiers slipping and rolling on the deck, the wheel spinning around... for that day, their chase was definitely over! "Brace yourselves lads! Give me more jib and say farewell to those bilge rats!" The little crew roared and ran to the ropes. Soon, the Lotii would have turned back to their port, seasick and humiliated, and Seawatch would have been fed for one more day. The Stormchaser, and many other little ships with her, were the last, weak connection between Seawatch and the rest of the world: the settlement was surrounded, and all the roads had been cut. However, the Lotii junks blockading the port were not as fast and seaworthy as the Madrician sloops. When the sea became rough, therefore, brave and slightly mad captains tried the dangerous routes from Fort Arltrees or Spudkirk, defying the storms and the enemy patrols. They were called Sturmreitern, the riders of the storms, because that was exactly what they did: riding the waves and the winds, that the Lotii didn’t dare to face! Some considered them smugglers and profiteers, others called them heroes and saints... whatever the truth, their cargoes of dried meat, hardtack and gunpowder allowed Seawatch to survive. Before departure, the boat had been stripped of anything less than essential, then barrels and crates were fastened in every empty space. The little ship must remain as light and fast as possible, but the cargo had to be worth the risks! "Port ahead, Cap! I see the lighthouse!" The little port tower had been shelled several times, but somehow it was still standing. They had completed another passage, one more line to carve on the mast. Now the waves seemed funnier, and everyone was laughing and cheering... apart from the Carnite officer they had taken on board, who was still a little too green to talk! ---------- Front view of the Stormchaser A side view of the ship and its support ------------------------- After a week on a sailboat, I can finally present you the Stormchaser, which I completed soon before my departure! I'm thinking of licensing it as class 2 or 3 (suggestions appreciated: 22 studs at the waterline, 40 at the deck, excluding the bow mast). This is an idea I had before the siege of Seawatch was lifted, but I never had a chance to complete it. Now that the "humanitarian smuggling" task of the Stormchaser is over, it can move to more profitable businesses!
  16. Out of the morning mist around Westface shoots the spectre of an unknown schooner. In forts around the city, guns are loaded and levelled, preparing for the order to fire. The recent pirate attacks on Mooreton Bay have left many a harbour defence on the edge. Approaching close to the wind, the signal hoist on the foremast is obscured, but as one artillery officer is just about to give the order to fire, a signals post repeats the private signal from the schooner, identifying it as a friend rather than a foe. Following directly, a new signal breaks out, calling for the captain of the HMS Greyhound to repair aboard at once. At shore, the signal confounds the commandant, as the Greyhound has long since departed the station. However, Captain Cooke, spotting the signal from his portside inn, realises that it can only refer to him and rushes to the pier. The schooner HMS Nimble is newly built off a Balondian yard and just arrived in Terra Nova. The 10 gun schooner is armed with 6 pounder guns, and built specifically for the rough seas of the colonies. She is a weatherly craft, able in high seas and able to lie very close to the wind. Now she is the first in a squadron of ships sent to reinforce the colonies, under the command of Captain Cooke. Another small hull piece test for a class 3 schooner.
  17. Only hours after the arrival in Westface of the HMS Nimble, another vessel pulls into view. This time, however, the gunners are more confident, laying their guns with great care, as certainly, this must be a corsair. After the recent disappointment, perhaps now their thirst for action can be sated? The gunners are only to some degree to be disappointed, as the vessel, although not a target, is indeed a former (and by name present) corsair. The HMS Corsair is a xebec-frigate taken from corsairs off Guelph by Corlander cruisers. Her sailing qualities were such that she was purchased into the service. She carries 14 9-pounders, and while that armament is light for a frigate, she makes up for it in maneuverability. The large lateen combined with square sails (known as a polacre-rig) makes her an excellent sea boat, particularly close to the wind, allowing her to eat the wind out of any square rigger. In a calm, her light construction allows the effective use of sweeps, long oars deployed through ports designed for the specific purpose. She too is to join the squadron under Captain Cooke, to combat the pirates that has scoured the seas and attacked Corlander interests in the Brick Seas. ' A class 5 polacre-xebec for the Royal Navy.
  18. Despite being the swiftest of the three, the HMS Camilla was the last to arrive in Westface, hours after the HMS Nimble and the HMS Corsair. As the squadron was spread out to sweep the seas on their way to Westface, the HMS Camilla, being commanded by only a lieutenant, was relegated to the most leeward position of the line. As they neared port, the square rigged, and thus least weatherly, Camilla had to make up the most distance, beating up from leeward. The HMS Camilla is an 18-gun post ship of the Royal Navy, newly built in Northern Corrington. Her long 12 pounders offer her a good weight of metal, but what is most notable about her is her tall rig, being built for speed. She is well-suited for traditional anti-piracy duty, although the size of the most notorious Brick Seas pirate flotilla might make the Camilla's career short. She arrives commanded only by her first lieutenant, with orders for Captain Cooke to join and take command. The orders did allude to the fact that an 18 gun post ship is somewhat below the station of a senior post-captain, that it was only temporary, and that Captain Cooke would certainly jump at any opportunity to serve his country. And while Cooke had expected a more substantial command, the command of a squadron did somewhat make up for it, as did the beautiful, well-handled post-ship. If the crew of the Camilla had expected a long-awaited shore-leave in Westface, they must certainly take some resentment towards their new captain, as only hours after arrival, Captain Cooke had them afloat again on gunnery exercise with the rest of his new squadron. Another ship from my yards. Years in the making. If @Garmadon remembers, he challenged me (probably not directly ) to build a ship with gun-ports of 1,5 stud width. This is the fruits of that labour. And I think she turned out pretty nice. The biggest challenge was really making her sturdy, as the off stud widths make for less stable connections. I have learned much since I built her, and there are obviously things I would redo, but I am overall quite happy with her. She will be licensed as a class 5.

    [OL - ship] The Ajax

    The Ajax is an 18-gun sloop-of-war carrying the Oleonaise royal colours. I think she's probably a class 6, but I'd be keen to hear opinions on that. Not sure what to do with her. I'll probably sell her to the nation or the RNTC, but this may be the point at which I finally give in and join the EGS. I also don't have any backstory, so if you wanna invent that for me, I'd be much obliged.
  20. I’m designing a 1:200 scale model of the Queen Mary 2 with full interior (except the hotel rooms, 1300 identical rooms would get redundant). I’m using LDD to design it and hope to buy the 19,228 pieces and build it over the next 2-5 years. It will have working elevators, cargo doors, passenger doors, and all 17 decks with machinery and public spaces. Let me know what you think.
  21. For my contest entry, I wanted to make a small, yet feature packed little ship. Made in LDD and rendered in Bricklink Studio, It was based on 7416 Adventurer's set Emperor's ship, but I've remade it to be less of a Chinese Junk, and more of a Golden Age of Piracy Gunboat. I've added a bowsprit, cannon, steering wheel and a Poopdeck, and replaced cloth Junk sail with brick built Jib and Gaff Rigged sails (Ideally I'd use cloth sails, but I don't know how to do that in Studio). I'm very proud how it turned out, and I'm sure it would be a fine addition to Admiral Woodhouse's Navy. It's a very versatile vessel, perfect for patroling the shore, escorting and interception, and it's manned by a crew of three: Two Marines and One Captain. This is how it looks like from Starboard and Port. Even though the cabin under the poopdeck doesn't have much space, it's enough to keep charts and delicate navigation instruments away from the Elements. There's also a nice little hold for confiscated pirate contraband and treasure, though, to gain access to it, you have to remove the cannon. I guess that's what the huge crane at the Eldorado Fortress is for. Obviously it's the first cathegory entry, and I mainly tried to emulate the 2009 era, as it's evident by the Minifig Prints, and rather modern parts. EDIT: After hearing your suggestions, Here's the improved model: The Sails are now tan and with much less visible studs. New cannon! it's still not perfect, but it's much smaller, and has a built in stud shooter. And yes, you can open the hold with cannon still attached: Other changes: -Added Figurehead -Reduced number of golden decorations. Now it should be more aesthetically coherent. -Tweaked the stern a little bit. Added colours flag, and an additional lantern. - Made the hold trapdoor open the other way, this should make it more accessible.

    Built this SHIP last night using some advanced building techniques, but I'm not sure what the right term for this type of hull design is. It has a lot in common with a Cog, but the curve on the prow is the wrong shape - wondering if anyone can help me figure out a more accurate classification. It's definitely a merchant vessel as the primary cargo is animals. Advanced Rigging Technique: Use fences for sails and pinch a firehose between them Advanced SNOT Technique: Balance a plate on a bear's nose as the ship's wheel A shot showing off the whole build Another shot showing off the whole build The nameboard
  24. Un racconto “piratesco” PARTE 2: IL SERPENTE Intanto nei mari più a Nord una sagoma possente baluginava all'orizzonte sotto i raggi del Sole. Scintillii dorati ed una grande sagoma bianca e rossa si affioravano tra le onde. Armato di cannocchiale, al nostromo di un piccolo brigantino con il Jolly Roger in cima all'albero maestro, sembrò di scorgere un serpente marino dalla testa rossa e le spire bicrome solcare i flutti lontani. Un attimo, e il pirata vide appena sopra la testa del serpente un lampo e uno sbuffo di fumo seguiti da un sibilo... poco dopo un colpo di mortaio li mancò di poche spanne. All'istante il brigantino invertì la rotta ed intraprese la fuga. Quel manipolo di pirati fu il primo a scorgere "Tiamat", la nuovissima ammi raglia delle giubbe blu, pronta a portare il caos nelle acque infestate dai pirati. Nell'antica mitologia babilonese Tiamat era la madre di tutto il cosmo, la dea primordiale degli oceani e delle acque salate. Raffigurata come un serpente marino o un drago, era il simbolo e l'incarnazione del caos primordiale. Il governatore, grande studioso delle civiltà antiche, scelse questo nome per l'imbarcazione di punta della sua flotta, un nome che avrebbe dovuto incutere terrore e rispetto in chiunque pensasse (malauguratamente) di ingaggiare un duello con il veliero. Tre possenti alberi e 12 vele ingabbiavano i venti che spingevano il vascello, dotato di grande agilità e velocità nonostante la mole dello scafo. Armato di tutto punto da prua a poppa, con cannoni, mortai e bombarde pronte ad affondare quei maledetti filibustieri che insozzavano le acque caraibiche. Pur essendo una nave progettata per dar battaglia, il governatore pretese che fosse anche riccamente decorata, e quindi il vascello era un fiorire di ornamenti dorati ad intervallare la bicromia rossa e bianca dello scafo. Finalmente pronta al varo la Tiamat fu “benedetta” dal re in persona, ed appena la sua chiglia tocco le acque l'esperto capitano fece rotta verso i caraibi per saggiare la potenza di fuoco dell'ammiraglia e dare un avvertimento chiaro ai filibustieri: niente sarà più come prima, nessuna pirateria sarà facile, tutti saranno puniti dalla dea babilonese… A "pirate" tale PART 2: THE SERPENT Meanwhile, in the seas further north, a mighty shape glimmered on the horizon under the rays of the sun. Golden sparkles and a large white and red shape emerged from the waves. Armed with a telescope, the boatswain of a small brig with the Jolly Roger at the top of the main mast thought he saw a sea serpent with a red head and dichromatic coils furrowing the distant waves. A moment, and the pirate saw just above the snake's head a flash and a puff of smoke followed by a hiss... shortly after a mortar round missed them by a few hands. Instantly the brig reversed course and began to flee. That handful of pirates were the first to see 'Tiamat', the newest flagship of the Bluecoats, ready to wreak havoc on the pirate-infested waters. In ancient Babylonian mythology Tiamat was the mother of all cosmos, the primordial goddess of the oceans and salt waters. Depicted as a sea serpent or a dragon, she was the symbol and embodiment of primordial chaos. The governor, a great scholar of ancient civilizations, chose this name for the flagship of his fleet, a name that should have instilled terror and respect in anyone thinking (unfortunately) of engaging in a duel with the sailing ship. Three mighty masts and 12 sails caged the winds that pushed the vessel, endowed with great agility and speed despite the bulk of the hull. Fully armed from bow to stern, with cannons, mortars and bombards ready to sink those accursed freebooters who littered the Caribbean waters. Despite being a ship designed to do battle, the governor demanded that it was also richly decorated, and therefore the vessel was a flourishing of golden ornaments interspersed with the red and white duotone of the hull. Finally ready to launch, the Tiamat was "blessed" by the king himself, and as soon as her keel touched the waters, the expert captain set sail for the Caribbean to test the firepower of the flagship and give a clear warning to the buccaneers: nothing it will be more like before, no piracy will be easy, everyone will be punished by the Babylonian goddess…
  25. This is my entry to the "Life of Cedrica" contest: Cedrica Outer Port Office At the entrance to Cedrica´s harbor is a small island, which is completely built up by a Port Office. Many ships stop here to be guided by the pilot the last stretch to the main port. Entering the quay is Seigurd of Updale in his small cog, to clear his cargo at the port office. In his office, the port manager keeps a log of incoming cargo.
