  2. Hi guys, this is my new creation! Today in Greece, we celebrate the national holiday of the Greek Revolution, officially started at 25th of March 1821, which culminated in the forming of Greece as a modern state. To celebrate that day, we chose to depict a famous victory over the Ottoman forces of Dramali Pasha, sent to suppress the revolution in the Peloponnese peninsula. This battle (critical battle at Dervenakia for the independence of Greece (Hellas) against Turks (Ottomans) after 400 years of slavery), largely inspired and excecuted by the chief of the Greek forces at Moreas (Peloponissos as it was called back then) Theodoros Kolokotrolis, was fought and won at Dervenakia straights, thus saving the Greek Revolution from dying off. "Freedom or Death" was the only thought in the fighters minds during the fight.. Theodoros Kolokotronis! The Great General! For more details, read here Battle of Dervenakia here Mahmud Dramali Pasha and here Theodoros Kolokotronis Special thanks to my friend @blackdeathgr for the help with the skirts! As always, thanks for watching C & C are welcome!!

    [ENTRY] 1492 Battle Cove - Remake 2023

    Hello! Now I'm thinking again about the 1492 Battle Cove set. The garrison that once had its better days is now in total ruins. Two pirates were originally on duty on the small island, but one stole a gold bar from a hidden treasure chest and quickly hid it before his partner shot him. His skeleton can be seen at the edge of the beach. Flickr Instagram
  5. July 623, Vol. 8, Special Issue 2a Coalition forces triumph! Olean Commander takes charge In preparation for the battle, General Hercule François took the initiative and forged a plan of combining the Eslandian and Corlander forces in Seawatch with his own force in Fort Arltrees. Despite being senior of all coalition commanders present on El Oleonda, it must have galled particularly the Redcoats to submit to Bluecoat plans, but true to their utilitarian ways, they saw the merits of the plan, and agreed. Eslandian commanders appear to have submitted quietly. Apart from staff-work, Olean forces conducted significant reconnaissance, including several notable skirmishes with Lotii forces. Additionally, incredible feats of logistics were conducted to get the forces into position to execute the plan. This included trundling guns over hilly passes, establishing new roads, and erecting semaphore stations. (Tactical score for OL: 5/5 - awarded for colossal building effort and excellent tactics) Corlander forces harassing the left flank The Olean plan of attack was, despite historical differences, deemed competent, and Brigadier Allcock and staff set about confounding the enemy within its wide limits. Much like the Bluecoats, Corlander skirmishers and hussars have conducted extensive offensive reconnaissance, engaging Lotii forward positions, and even taking down watchtowers and camps. No doubt these efforts lessened the blow of the Lotus ambush. In the rear, massive camps were erected to accommodate the forces, ensuring the future reconstitution of forces. (Tactical score for COR: 4/5 - awarded for massive building effort, taking part in a good plan, and a sound tactical approach to battle) Eslandian forces fall in with plan Whether the trade company troops of Eslandola, or a limited support of their crown, Eslandian commanders made little fuss about the campaign, and quietly fell in with the overall scheme. Consisting largely of Tercios, the Eslandian capacity for forward reconnaissance was limited, and Greencoat forces were preserved for the main assault, where the pike and shot formations would again show their formidable staying power. (Tactical score for ESL: 2/5 - awarded for taking part in a good plan, and an interesting battle formation. Limited building effort limited the score, however) Lotus high command prepares for controlled withdrawal? It appears the Lotus high command had hoped to lure the full coalition force into an ambush, but were taken aback by the excellent plan and execution of the combined coalition. However, the ambush tactics will allow for an ordered retreat, limiting losses among the main force by sacrificing some light units. (Tactical score for LOT: 3/5 - awarded for a good sound plan to meet the Corlander attack, but limited by not directly addressing the full plan of the coalition and the (relative to coalition side) limited building) The Lotus Empire is forced into retreat! We bring below a direct transcript from our reporter in Seawatch, who with a number of correspondents, was embedded in Coalition forces, experiencing the battle first hand! ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The sun rose over the battleground, and the tension was palpable as the forces of Eslandola, Corrington, and Oleon stood ready to face the formidable might of the Lotus Empire. The coalition forces had spent days preparing and planning their attack, while the Lotus forces were cunningly concealing their true intentions. On the coalition's side, the Eslandian heavy tercios formed a solid wall in the center, flanked by the line infantry and heavy cavalry of Corrington to the East. Corlander light forces, including hussars and light infantry, positioned themselves to harass the enemy's right flank. Meanwhile, Olean forces waited patiently in the rainforests to the West, their field artillery and heavy infantry poised to surprise the enemy's left flank as soon as the Lotus was engaged by the main assault. As the battle commenced, the coalition forces charged forward, intent on engaging the enemy head-on. The Eslandian tercios marched with unwavering discipline, their pikes bristling in the sunlight. The Corlander line infantry unleashed a volley of musket fire, and their heavy cavalry thundered forward, their sabres drawn. However, the Lotus Empire had a different plan in mind. Their right flank feigned a retreat, drawing the eager Corlander forces forward, falling into the trap set by the cunning enemy. The Lotus ninjas, hidden in the dense forests of the island, struck with deadly precision. In a flash, they ambushed the unsuspecting Corlander troops, causing chaos and confusion. The Corlander light forces on the coalition's flank fought valiantly to counter the ninja ambush, but the damage was done. The Corlander forces were thrown into disarray, but soon managed to regroup and rally. With WTC forces forming the vanguard and taking up the general melee, the regular Corlander forces were bought time to reform and respond, avoiding disaster. At the same time, the Olean forces, led by their skilled commanders, recognised the enemy's initial retreat as a ruse and did not fall for the trap. Instead, they advanced methodically on the enemy's left flank, unleashing a devastating barrage of artillery fire and engaging the Lotus lines with their shock troops. The Olean assault caught the Lotus positions off guard, and they struggled to respond effectively. With the coalition's forces now bearing down on both flanks, the Lotus Empire found itself in a precarious position. The Eslandian tercios, undeterred by the enemy's tactics, pressed forward with determination, their heavy pikemen shielding the musketeers from enemy counter-assaults. They clashed with the main force of the Lotus Empire, pushing back the Lotus regulars. The superior discipline and training of the tercios proved crucial in gaining ground against the enemy. Seeing the perilous situation, the Lotus commander was forced to make retreat. Realising they could not match the coalition's combined might and flanking tactics, they wisely chose to preserve their forces for another day. The coalition forces had achieved their objective of forcing the enemy to retreat. While not a decisive victory, it was a strategic win. The Lotus Empire had underestimated the strength and coordination of the coalition forces, and their retreat was a testament to the effectiveness of the coalition's well-executed plan. As the dust settled and the smoke cleared, the coalition forces regrouped, taking stock of their losses and celebrating their accomplishments. They knew the battle was far from over, but this day had shown the potential of their combined strength. The coalition commanders met to review the battle and plan for future engagements. The Lotus Empire's cunning tactics had been met with resilience and adaptability from the coalition. Lessons were learned, and preparations were made to continue the fight. The sun began to set over the battlefield, casting a golden glow on the warriors who stood side by side, united in their cause. The war raged on, and the fate of Terra Nova hung in the balance. But for now, the coalition forces had taken a step forward in their pursuit of victory. No news from Jiangkai From Jiangkai in the South, Olean guerillas led by Captain Guillaume "Tiger" Dupont set out to target the enemy logistics and communications, and rumours has it that the retreating Lotii forces have had their southern flank much harassed, increasing the Lotus losses considerably. However, the "Tiger" and his troops have yet to make their presence known in Jiangkai, and it is unknown whether they have been defeated, went into hiding, or continue to harass the enemy! (Plus 10 % losses to Lotus) _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The Lotus suffers a loss, forced into tactical retreat back to their settlements in the East. All commanders (Lotus, COR (Allcock), ESL (Unknown?), and OL (Hercule Francois and Guillaume Dupont) gain +1 xp. ESL forces in the brunt of the assault took 20 % losses, while Corlander and Olean forces took 15 %. Lotus forces were hit harder, loosing 15 % to the initial battle, and an additional 10 % from the guerilla activities, for a total loss of 25 % of their forces.

  7. Somewhere Southwest Seawatch, El Oleonda, April 623 All the pieces were in position, the chessboard ready. The marching songs, the chants of the native allies, the last nervous jokes...everything was replaced by an unreal silence, as every unit reached its starting position. Finally, General Hercule François roared: "Unfurl the colours. Remind everyone who the greatest warriors on this battlefield are." And louder, so that everyone could hear him: "Men of Oleon!" He roared, his voice carrying back all the way to the artillery. "I know you can gut this cowardly enemy and wipe them from this isle! But now I want you to prove it to me! Pour le Roi!" The soldiers echoed, with a deafening yell: "Pour le Roi! Pour le Roi! Pour le Roi!" It was the time. "Monsieurs, send them all you've got!" Said General Tristan Rimbaud, a fierce grin on his face. In less than a minute, all the artillery pieces assigned to his unit were blazing. The soldiers cheered loudly as, seconds later, the jungle in front of them was shattered by a series of violent explosions. Tristan had specifically required mortars and howitzers, capable of firing on high-arching trajectories... and, even more importantly, capable of firing explosive shells. "Captain du Motier! Two more salvos, then fire forward!" At this point, Tristan was yelling at the top of his lungs and waving his saber, to overcome the clamor of the battle. "Soldiers, forward! At the double! It is time to destroy our enemies!" ----------------------- Tristan and his men marched forward, with the shells whistling above their heads, and a hell of explosions in front of them. A grenade fell short, dangerously too short, but none of the soldiers was hit. As planned, the assault group reached the Lotii trenches immediately after the last explosions. If du Motier knew his job, the next salvo would have fallen a few hundred meters behind the first line, just in front of them, to hit and paralyze the Lotii reinforcements. Otherwise, Tristan would have probably had little time to regret his choices. Tristan jumped in the trench, followed by his chasseurs. The walls had collapsed in several points, allowing an easier descent. The earthworks were scattered with the corpses of several Lotii soldiers, but everyone was more concerned about the ones -alive and armed- who were running towards them. The barrage had been brief but extremely violent and, now that it had moved forward, it was cutting that position out from orders and reinforcements. The bluecoats stormed the enemy positions before the Lotii could set up an organised defence. The grenadiers, who were following closely the first vanguard, started throwing their weapons across the ditch, where some enemy musketeers were trying to form a defensive line. Other soldiers, with the muskets on their shoulders, were carrying light wooden ladders, useful to quickly climb the trench walls. Tristan didn’t plan to conquer that specific position: instead, his assault column aimed to slice through the enemy lines, to attack the artillery batteries behind them and the closest command point. The Lotii soldiers were determined and well-armed, but still disorganised. Moreover, Tristan had gathered some of the most elite troops available… including the grenadiers, who were definitely not sparing their weapons. As the battle was still ongoing, the teams in charge of the light mortars placed their weapons and opened fire. The assault column could have easily been outnumbered, but only if the Lotii could recover from the initial shock, something rather difficult if everything around kept exploding! Soon the regular infantry, the feared “blue line” would have arrived in their support… or, if everything went by the plans, to collect the wounded and the prisoners. If everything went by the plans… the soldiers had no way to know how things were going in the other areas of the battlefield, if they were rushing to victory or if they were going to be encircled. But, for Hades’ sake, their charge would have been remembered! Overall view --------------- Note: as Fort Arltrees couldn’t seem further from the frontline, and the new Gardens of Poseidon are opened, the Second Battle of Seawatch has begun. As news from the frontline have not reached the settlements yet, we still don’t have any idea whether this is a glorious victory, a limited success, or the prelude to a defeat. Credit to the (impatient ) @Ross Fisher for the general’s speech! I’m sorry for the little technical inconvenience of the half-completed story, for the next time I swear I’ll avoid that!

  14. Part III ‘Clash with the Tabascans’ Cortés and his expedition left Cozumel, and by late March his armada anchored off of the coast of the Tabascan settlement of Pontonchan. Cortés took a group of small oared boats up the Tabasco River into the thick mangrove swamps. Hidden in the lush jungle lining the river were, seemingly, countless Tabascan Warriors armed with bows and spears. The warriors rushed the Spanish boats forcing the Conquistadors to fight back in waist deep water. Cortés lost a boot on his way ashore, but he managed to continue fighting and directing his troops. The Spanish organized once on land and managed to repel the waves of Tabascan Warriors until they finally retreated back into the overgrown jungle.

  16. Hi, my name is Charlie. I'm the member of KLIKK Hungarian LEGO Fan Community. In summer, I had the chance to move to a new house, where I have a lot of space to build own LEGO creations. So, although I'm an AFOL years ago, this is the first time I have a large MOC. Please let me introduce my new Harry Potter creation. My LEGO creation includes more than 35000 LEGO pieces and it took approximately 600 hours to make it ready. It's 115 x 153 cm large (3x4 large LBG baseplates). If you didn't recognize yet, this is the epic battle from the last episode of the franchise. Voldemort's army is attacking the Hogwarts and a battle is beginning between the death eaters, freaky creatures, students, teachers and the members of The Order of Phoenix. I've built the two towers with the cloister and the entrance of the Great Hall. In the courtyard, you can discover many of the characters. For the best result, I've built all of the great moments of the battle. To ensure a great view, the cloister isn't built at the front. The right corner on the front isn't complete, because originally, there should be a giant tower, so I've left the space of it. Movie scene #1: Movie scene #2: I know there are some difference between the MOC and the movie's courtyard. Some of them are intentional. What's missing? - small columns of the arcades (I haven't find the best way to build them yet.) - proper torso for Hermione Granger (I've just find one from a TMNT set) What's wrong? - Layout should be deeper, but I had to consider that this is regularly an exhibition part, so small children should see the whole building. - Paving is different, because if I built this entirely from 1x2 tiles, it would be too bright. You can see some details, minifigures and action in this blog post: One of my dreams is to build the Great Hall behind its entrance, half destroyed. It would be really a great hit. I hope you'll like my creation. Please tell your opinion and leave a comment below. Thank you!

  21. Something is coming by Arfelan Nest, en Flickr Battle of the Teutoburg Forest Between 6 and 9 CE, the Romans were forced to move eight of eleven legions present in Germania, leaving Varus with only three legions to face the Germans. This represented the perfect opportunity for Arminius to defeat Varus. While Varus was on his way from his summer camp west of the River Weser to winter headquarters near the Rhine, he heard reports of a local rebellion, reports which had been fabricated by Arminius. Varus decided to quell this uprising immediately, expediting his response by taking a detour through territory that was unfamiliar to the Romans. Arminius, who accompanied the legions, directed him along a route that would facilitate an ambush. "Varus give me back my legions" The title refers to Emperor Augustus' alleged words in the aftermath of the battle, in which he was so devastated by the annihilation of three Roman legions that he spent the next several weeks in a stupor, repeating the phrase "Give me back my legions!" Varus's forces included his three legions (Legio XVII, Legio XVIII and Legio XIX), six cohorts of auxiliary troops and three squadrons of cavalry. Most of these lacked combat experience, both with regard to Germanic fighters, and under the prevalent local conditions. The Roman forces were not marching in combat formation
