  1. Island Outpost

    This model was inspired by a LUG challenge focused around the Pirates theme. While I usually only make a few Pirates builds each year, it has always been one of my favorite genres. The one limit for the challenge was that your entry had to be no bigger than the largest official Pirates set. I have always been more attracted to the islands, forts, and land settings than ships themselves, so I settled on building a small fort on an island. A single 32×32 baseplate served as the foundation for the model. For once a peaceful day with no pirates, or enemy ships in sight of the small Imperial outpost. Which makes it a fitting time to restock with some fresh supplies. More pictures are available on brickbuilt. Thanks for looking
  2. [MOC] XTS-620

    Receiving transmission: "Commandant. We have recovered the secret data from the archive. The data was highly encrypted but after our best hacker decrypted it, we found out that it had highly sophisticated mech frame plans. We carried out the XTS-620 experimental mech frame to the test range and it pretty much passed all the test in record timing. This is one of the most destructive mech we have ever built. We call it "Twins". This "Twins" mech is piloted by two pilots working in perfect harmony with eachother. The left side is mounted with a highly destructive gauss ion cannon. It has enough power to pierce our experimental "Cocoon" armor. The weapon is still not fully tested so do not go over 70% power or you risk destroying the arm completely. On the left side, we have a high pressurized pyromite launcher that has 3 times the range of our standard pyromite launchers. Also for melee combat, the left arm is mounted with a large plasmite claw. There is enough power to crush a class 5 titan head like an egg. The legs are equipped with experimental dampening systems that allow the mech to jump down without any damage to the actuators. This mech requires highly trained pilots that can sync up in perfect harmony. We have sent you this experimental mech for a field test on real action. Be cautious." -Mech build lab
  3. MOC: Scavenging on scarif

    This is my first moc topic here on eurobricks even thought I joined a while ago, I hope I am doing this right also if you want to understand why the resistance exists and isn't just the new republic I recommend the book Bloodline cause episode 7 does a bad job explaining it plus its a great read. 'Astounding, what are the chances of finding a moron stupid enough to think its worth while to kidnap a broken droid ,well about 0.5%' yes I know k-2s0 should be dead and exploded but just ignore that :P
  4. My entry for the Colossal Castle Contest 14, in siege warfare category: For the siege of Constantinople, Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II(later remembered as the Conqueror) commissioned a Hungarian siege engineer to cast him a giant bombard, along with smaller other cannons. These cannons were instrumental in bringing down the Byzantine walls.

  7. [MOC] [LDD] ION CANNON

    Hi After checking out the so called " cubistic ion cannon" in the new UCS Echo Base set I decided to give it a go and try to create a more worthy design. Here is the result: What do you think? Is it any better? Let me know what you think. Also, If you want to help raise attention to this please support the idea in lego.ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/140111 CHEERS! Thanks!
  8. [MOC] Lance Ship BRY-798

    [ A new, bigger spacecraft done in the same style as a previous one but with the aid of more experience and Bricklink. I retained certain design elements but was able to expand upon the original style in a way that makes me feel better about the whole thing. This new ship doesn't fall apart nearly as often when handled, and to reduce the amount of handling I have to do it comes with its own display stand, modeled after the Action Base accessory kits that are sold alongside Gunpla plastic model kits. In addition, I was able to increase the amount of lime green, dark blue, and trans-neon green, which meant I didn't have to rely on gray greebles as much to fill in the empty spaces. Finally, this ship has much fewer visible studs than the previous and what would have been wasted detail space has been used to great effect (in my opinion)! A bit of lore: While the previous ship in this style serves a scouting/general presence role, this ship comes equipped with two particle lance cannons and a larger particle drive system. This particular variant of the basic drive system comes equipped with a larger particle-reactor core and additional deflectors directly aft of the main particle emitters, as well as a modified particle guide vane geometry. The ship comes equipped with extra secondary particle emitters for better maneuverability as well. Whereas the previous scout ship's particle drive is engineered for long-range endurance and its guide vane geometry is optimized for a higher slipspace speed, this ship's drive system allows for sharper trajectory curves and a wider range of speeds, while also providing the output for the particle lance cannons. Pictures show more than words, so here's the rest.
  9. Battle of New Orleans, January 8, 1815

    Displaying at the National Museum of the Marine Corps on April 11th, I had to come up with something featuring the USMC and also what’s apparently become my theme this year, the Anniversary of Something, so here’s my take on this iconic conflict. I only had about 6 hours to build it, so no border, and I would have liked to build up those ramparts higher but overall, fairly satisfied with this one. 100% LEGO except for the custom flags. Click on the pictures below for more detail. —————————— Ever forget something that was really important not to forget? The Battle of New Orleans, fought on January 8, 1815 was the last major combat of the War of 1812. 4732 American combatants, commanded by Major General Andrew Jackson, prevented nearly 11,000 British infantry and Royal Marines, commanded by General Edward Pakenham, from seizing New Orleans as a strategic prize to end the war. The war was actually over by the time the main battle was fought, ended by the Treaty of Ghent on December 24, 1814, but since the US government had not yet approved the treaty, the fighting in Louisiana would continue until the British withdrew on January 18th. One of the most lop-sided victories in history, the British advanced under very heavy fire only to find once they reached the American ramparts that the ladders necessary to ascend the fortifications were not available, having been forgotten by the negligence of the Colonel in charge of them. With limited access to the Americans and taking fire the entire time, all British officers over the rank of Major in the front ranks were killed, leaving no one to sound the retreat. Their casualties were therefore disproportionately high, losing over 2000 in just 25 minutes of fighting, compared to less than 100 American casualties (only 13 were actually killed). As for the USMC, 58 US Marines fought at New Orleans, and they are the American troops portrayed here (hence the USMC uniforms). Hope you like it, comments are welcome! Correction: This was the last major land battle of the war. As 2Maxwell points out below, the last combat was the naval battle between the USS Constitution vs. HMS Levant and HMS Cyane...which would make an outstanding LEGO build sometime as well!
  10. Nice Day For A Swim

    This was my first time building a ship and I'm quite pleased with the result: More pics here: Link Let me know what you think, all C&C appreciated
  11. If you were a pirate stranded on a tiny island with a large, scary shark circling around, and could only have 3 objects with you, what would they be? There are only two correct answers to this question. You would either want a bottle of rum, another bottle of rum, and yet another bottle of rum... or you would want a gun, a bigger gun, and an even bigger gun. (Any combination of these two scenarios will only lead to dangerous pirate behavior and the risk of self-inflicted harm.) Lego set number 1492, "Battle Cove" gives us that three-gun island. Our lonely pirate may be down, but he is most certainly not out - not without a fight, anyway. Number: 1492 Name: Battle Cove Year: 1992 Pieces: 26 Minifigs: 1 Sharks: 1 Price: Unknown Availability: USA Only Informative Links: Brickset Set Entry Bricklink Catalog Entry Peeron Catalog Entry Lugnet Catalog Entry Brickipedia Entry Brickpicker Page Today I am reviewing Lego System polybag set 1492 "Battle Cove". Unfortunately, I do not have the original packaging, but I do have a complete copy otherwise. This is a set I received as a child. As such, I must cite the informative links I have placed above as historical records of this set. Apparently, this set was sold only in the USA, and according to some inventories, this set may have only been sold at certain stores or was perhaps part of some kind of promotion aimed at consumers. At any rate, it would seem that this is one of the rarer sets in the pirate theme. The Unboxing Unbagging A fresh copy of 1492 (image courtesy of BrickLink) Imagine receiving the polybag shown above. What would you do? Why, rip it right open and dump out the contents, of course! Instructions (front) The front of the instructions shows the same image as the bag packaging depicts. We see the entire set, complete with minfig and shark against a nice background and surface. As a hobbyist photographer, I really appreciate these old box/instructions photos. The good people at Lego put a refreshing emphasis on their product art. This set being from 1992, Lego has not yet turned to computer rendered artwork, and someone has put together a nice backdrop and foreground to show off this set. Bravo. Instructions (back / random segment) This image of the instructions back side is for completion. The type of instructions with this polybag set is more of a folded leaflet that has two sides' worth of instruction panels. So the "back side" in this case is really just one of the instruction panes (the first one showing how to put a shark together... and a pirate.) Set contents (sans instructions) Here we have all the pieces in this set laid out. According to set inventories, there are 26 pieces. However, I count 27! I believe the online inventories are counting the shark body and head as one piece, however the instructions show how to connect the head to the body, suggesting that the shark probably came unassembled. But enough of the geeky piece count nitpicking. Instead, let's nitpick the parts we have here! We have a decent assortment of colors here. We have 4 printed pieces. We also have 3 guns (one being a cannon, actually). (There is no rum, however. Rum bottles would not be included in pirate sets until the Pirates of the Caribbean line.) A palm frond is always a welcome addition to any collection. A smattering of light gray elements and two 6 x 6 yellow plates finish up this set's parts. These are nice to have. Printed corner wall element One piece that sticks out in particular is the printed corner wall element. According to online inventories, this element is only in 7 sets produced between 1988 and 1995. And of those 7 sets, this set is the smallest (the other six are all above 160 pieces and mostly castle-themed sets). That might make this set a viable way to acquire this piece, if not for the fact that this set was a USA exclusive. United States issue non-firing Lego cannon One interesting aspect of Lego sets released in the USA is that the cannons do not fire. I had no idea this was abnormal from the rest of the world until I was out of my dark ages. I'm not an expert on this minutae, but I've heard it explained that it was a safety concern. I believe that some copies of pirate sets in 1989 sold in the USA _did_ in fact have the pull-firing cannons at first, until the design was tweaked to have the non-firing type. The interesting thing is that the newer line of pirate sets from 2009 had firing cannons, including copies sold in the USA. The dark gray shark Here we have the set's dark gray shark. Let's be honest here: the shark is the crowning jewel of this set. I think we can all agree on that. (Be sure to cast your vote in the poll at the top of this thread!) The Minifigure The pirate (front, back) It seems that this minfig torso always accompanies this particular head, and it appears in 5 different minifigure permutations across 21 sets (all of them "classic" 80s/90s pirate sets). But in each canonical minifigure, the pants are either white, gray, or black, and the fig also always sports a tricorner hat (albeit black or brown). If not for having black pants instead of light gray, we might have been able to classify this pirate as Rummy, the first mate of the Renegade Runner. (For more pirate naming fun, see this thread). Could this pirate in fact be Rummy with different pants? I'm undecided; share your opinion on this matter by replying to this thread! Regardless, we have here a minfig whose head and torso printing are some of the more detailed in the line. I personally think the face print is one of my all-time favorites. You have an eye patch, scruffy hair, stubble, and a pleasing smile. This is part of what makes classic pirates so memorable. Everyone is happy in classic Legoland, and why not? The torso on this pirate is also one of the more detailed in the line, with a jacket exposing an undershirt and a thick, piratey belt. It's also worth noting that this torso can perhaps be put to good use as a bluecoat officer or perhaps some kind of privateer. Let's get building. The Build With so few parts in this polybag set, the build is relatively straightforward. The instructions are nice and simple, without any of the modern-day part callouts. Build foundation After a step or two, we have the beginnings of a wall and our cannon placed down. And after just a few more steps, we have our completed structure. (That was quick!) Island and structure (front) From the front, we have a bit of a fortification wall, our proud Jolly Roger pirate flag flying, and a palm frond to protect our heroic pirate from harmful UVA and UVB rays during his stay. Island and structure (rear) From the rear, we can see that the pirate has a place to hang his rifle. We also note that there are hiding places for pirate loot and cannon balls. It's a shame there aren't any in this set. How is our pirate to make use of the cannon without any ammunition? The complete build Here we have the set all together, including the pirate and the shark. Despite its size, it is an aesthetically pleasing set! For sets of this size, our imagination is really what drives the story here. Who is this pirate? And what of the island itself? Is it an abandoned fort, perhaps? There's enough playablity here to have a fair bit of fun on its own. With a chomping shark, a yawing cannon, and an armed pirate, we have all the trappings of a good pirate adventure. Still, there is room for improvement. A lack of a cannonball or two is a definite oversight, even if the cannon does not actually fire. And the addition of a monkey or some gold would really have made this set fantastic. It's a good "parts pack" at the very least, and a good addition to any pirate collection. There's enough to have a bit of fun with. If price data were available, I believe we would find a respectable price-to-parts ratio. It is also very easy to take elements from this set and add to other pirate sets. The minfigure and shark are easily added to a larger ship, as are the cannon, firearms, and flag. At the end of the day, this is a solid polybag set that captures the freespirited nature of classic pirate sets. I give this set two rusty hooks straight up! Scoring Playability: 6/10 (Minifig and shark fun, but your imagination will do some heavy lifting here.) Design: 7/10 (A reasonably attractive structure given the part count. But an extra palm frond or a monkey would be nice.) Parts: 9/10 (Some useful, detailed parts here. Multiple printed pieces. Good for crew building and armaments.) Minfigs: 7/10 (Relatively common minifig parts. But a classic and one of the more complex face and torso printings in the line.) Sharks: 9/10 (You can't go wrong with a dark gray shark. Point off for lack of additional sharks.) Price: N/A (Pricing is lost to the sands of time. Likely comparable to other polybags of its time.) Availability: 2/10 (Only available in USA! May have been an "exclusive" set only at a certain store.) Final Score: 7/10 (A solid pirate polybag. A good mix of parts, and a welcome addition to any pirate universe.) Uh oh. Looks like our hero is in trouble!... Whew! That was close! Our hero lives to fight another day.
  12. [MOC] British Royal Navy Gunboat

    171D Hello all! I said in my last small MOC, I'd probably do another MOC, so I decided to make a ship this time, a Gunboat. It took me almost 4 hours (mostly finding and digging out parts), i'd say remove all the finding time, it took me about 20 minutes to construct, maybe 25 minutes (I did a few designs, and picked the one I liked most). Now, the gunboat itself has 1 small mast, 1 small rotating cannon at the beginning, and 2 swivel guns. The ship can fit about 4-6 minifigures, however I didn't want to take up the whole ship with minifigures, so I manned it with 3 minifigures in the 3 main posts. I myself am pretty proud of my build, I mean, I just built it with limited parts, and the way I thought a gunship should look like. I originally constructed a small grey cannon to go at the front, but it was a little bit too big, so I added a smaller rotating cannon that looks a lot like a swivel gun Alright, let's get started. Gun1 by BrickJamesWells, on Flickr Side view of the ship. Quite small, but it is a Gunboat Gun2 by BrickJamesWells, on Flickr The bow of the ship. A redcoat manning the frontal cannon, and a Royal Navy gunner manning one of the two swivels. As you can see, I've given those new ugly blasters a use! They make great swivels, firing ones, too. Gun3 by BrickJamesWells, on Flickr Gun4 by BrickJamesWells, on Flickr Overview of the ship. You can see a bit of the crows nest. Gun5 by BrickJamesWells, on Flickr Other side of the ship. It does appear that there is a bit of dirt of that piece. Cleaning time Gun6 by BrickJamesWells, on Flickr A simple, small stern to the gunboat. Gun7 by BrickJamesWells, on Flickr You can really see everything that's going on in the ship in this pic. Gun8 by BrickJamesWells, on Flickr At the wheel of the ship, a British Midshipman pilots the small ship. Gun9 by BrickJamesWells, on Flickr Lastly a view of the whole ship and the crows nest. Let it sail to bring glory to the Redcoats, and justice to the seas. Hope you've enjoyed! Please tell me what you think of my Gunboat! Have a nice day.
  13. [MOC] Supply Lines

    Hello all. Some of you may have seen me around Eurobricks either here or in the Star Wars forums. I started out in Pirates, and I've been really meaning to get some type of MOC out there for some time, because although most of my attention is on Star Wars work and projects right now, I thought I'd just do something small. Please comment and criticize, it shows me if it's good or not, and how to improve for next time . Now, as I said before, this is just a small project. I hope you guys like it. MOC1 by BrickJamesWells, on Flickr Here's a frontal view of the small MOC. Redcoats unloading supplies for the small colony town. MOC2 by BrickJamesWells, on Flickr A view of the side of the dock and showing a bit more of the MOC. MOC 3 by BrickJamesWells, on Flickr MOC4 by BrickJamesWells, on Flickr Looks like the Redcoats will be bringing a prisoner with them. MOC 5 by BrickJamesWells, on Flickr A look at the townspeople running for their food and supplies. A Royal Navy Midshipman directs the troops where to drop off the supplies. MOC 6 by BrickJamesWells, on Flickr Lastly a look at the small cannon post. Even small towns need protection from those Bluecoats and Pirates. Hope you liked it. Please tell me what you think of it, it's not some crazy big MOC that will blow your minds, but I think it's sort of nice.
  14. Moon Squad Anti-Aircraft Ground Cannon This set comprises an Anti Aircraft Groud Cannon, working with blue plasma energie, located inside a small secured area. The secured area : The secured area is a squared space surrounded with a blue plasma fence, liberating a small plasma incapaciting discharge to everybody touching it. The area comprises also a check-point in the form of a closed small building, having on its roof, a space scooter landing plot. The secured area is equiped, on three corners, with a very effective targeting system, in the form of three small radar self-searching and targeting units. The targeting system is of course coupled with the ground cannon. The anti-aircraft ground cannon : It is a squared building, having a operation center at the bottom, an the actual cannon on the top. The operation center is piloted by two technicians. The cannon is fully horizontal rotating (360°C) and the two turrets can be leaned vertically over almost 25°C, independantly from each other. A ladder present next to the entrance door, permits an acces to the cannon level for the technicians if necessary. The vehicles : The set comprises a space scooter, which is a small flying transport unit for one single minifig. Further present in this set, a ground wheeled transport vehicle for the transport of isolation units in which a prisoner can be kept and locked in. The rear part of the vehicle can be folded down, to allow the exit of the isolation unit. The cockpit can be lifted, to introduce the pilot. The hood can also be lifted to see te plasma driven motor. The isolation unit can, of course, be opened, by lifting the front part. (see pictures) The Minifigs : This set comprise seven moon squad minifigs. There are two technicians (without weapons) and the Pilot of the wheeled transport vehicle. There are also four armed minifigs, in charge of the defense of the complex. All four units have a plasma shield. Two of them have a plasma pistol One has a plasma rifle And the last one has a plasma ray power phaser. So, if you like this set, you can support it on Lego Ideas : Moon Squad Anti-Aircraft Ground Cannon
  15. HMS Whisper

    [pid][/pid] 158D This being my first post, coming out of a Dark Age, I present His Majesty's Warship, The Whisper. She is a 16 gun, 2 mast, fast frigate. Her crew totals 15 sailors, 5 marines, and 2 officers. She is a 3 deck ship, with fully accessible Gun deck, Gallery, Captain's Cabin, and working capstan. more photos here: Thanks very much everyone, criticism is most definitely welcome!

  16. WIP: Godwin-Austen

    Hello Everyone, I would like to present to you my latest WIP, a fourteen gun brig named the Godwin-Austen. This ship is based off a model of the brig of 1750 HMS Duke of Bedford. The Godwin-Austen features a full interior in the hold and captain's quarters, NextGen stern and bow, 14 brick-built cannon and 4 swivels, working capstan, and working rudder and tiller. I built this in LDD before quickly ordering all the parts and piecing this together in about a week. Now I'm in need of compiling a new wanted list to finish her off and plan to be on rigging early next monthish. Many thanks go out for this ship especially to Perfectionist, DPW, and CRH.

  17. I do not normally get to post in this forum although I do look in from time to time. I have to say that I was unsure if this fitted into History of Sci-fi or Where? I have been building an army over the last few months using the Cavalry Builder sets for the most part, but also Bricklink. It is based on the concept of a Wild West army and although from a licensed range I have 'yellow'ised' the soldiers. I have posted photos on my flickr account along with descriptions of each unit. There are of course cavalry, but also cannons, limber and Caissons as well as Infantry platoons mounted in wagons. I have kept this for the most part as I read up on them, for example each limber & Caisson or limber and cannon being pulled by teams of four horses. Then I have added a little something to give it a Sci-fi taste and something which to be honest has taken the most time to build. That is four steam tanks. There are the twin Class A tanks with weapons fitted to broadside positions, then the Class B which with a nod to naval advancements has a better engine and main weapons mounted in a rotating turret. The final one is a primitive form of Infantry fighting vehicle with a frontal assault ramp and two forward facing cannons in side sponsons. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the pictures. At time of writing the army is 104 men strong which includes the two Indian scouts. I know my photography is not that good but I am trying to improve. I think I just do not have that good an eye for it though.
  18. WIP The Rowdy Gentleman

    Hey everyone. I'm starting work on a pirate ship (Wow, I haven't built one in forever) and I'm getting back into the swing of things. I'm working in LDD right now to design it. I'm still deciding on the color scheme, earth blue or black and white, etc.? Should I tile the gundeck? I'm expecting The Rowdy Gentleman to hold 12 guns per side, not including chasers or swivels. I'm thinking she'll have a full gun deck, and then that "half" one (can't remember the correct term). Any suggestions?
  19. I've been itching to build a Steampunk MOC ever since I've acquired a large amount of brown bricks... And yes, this is my first Steampunk MOC MikroMan humbly presents Tri-Cannon Eradicator, Steampunk edition: The frontal Eradicator view, with Dr. Sinister behind the controls. Side view. Back view, exhausts. C&Cs welcome
  20. [pid][/pid] 150B Ahoy mates! I be Cap'n Redshanks, mighty pirate, and for many years now I've been a regular visitor of these fine forums - but nary a post have I made. My meager collection of pirate LEGO hasn't produced much worth sharing. Now that I be home for the summer, it's time to set sail in my first completed MOC: the "Sea Chantey", me flagship. Enjoy! Most of the techniques and parts I utilized came from TLG ships, like the POTC Black Pearl and 2009 Brickbeard's Bounty. The sails are made of cardstock paper, and the reef points are (very poorly) hand-drawn. Here are some more views: A view from the port quarter. From dead astern. Dead-ahead, bow-on. A closer view of the stern. Nothing fancy here; the gold cutlasses came from the Pirate Captain in TLG's Minifigs Collection. The main cabin. Apologies for the blurry picture. The doors are a wee bit close to the mainmast, but I couldn't move the mast forward too much or else it would ruin the proportions of the ship; it'll just be a tight squeeze for the captain A closeup of the quarterdeck. See how close those doors are? I will probably change that later... Closeup of the winch over the gun deck. It can rotate in any direction. The gun deck. She can mount three guns per side, unless you clear out the cabin and stick cannons out the windows...improvisation, after all, is the art of a true pirate! A very blurry shot of the figurehead, a parrot. It seemed to fit with the aesthetics of the ship... That's it! Please leave your comments, criticisms, insults, and angry exclamations below. Fair winds and following seas, me buckos! - Redshanks
  21. A scout-sized mech made by the geniuses at Central Machines to act as the expendable force for the Cartan army. Costing less for raw materials than any other Central Machines mech, the Snotling is the perfect option for revolutionary forces, such as this Tartrosian rebel soldier piloting this mech. Here she is! Take a peek "under the hood"! I appreciate any comments/criticism. Check out more pictures on my Brickshelf Gallery.
  22. MOC: Steampunk Tripod Mech

    Behold, a blast from ages past! This is the Attatech I! The very first mech created by Attatech for the Great Wars. This model was used in the Siege of Musina as massive artillery units to bombard the vertical city. Manned by a only single semi-unprotected soldier, this model was eventually replaced two years into the war by the Attatech II and then the Attatech III. The only remaining models are held in the Great Cartan Library. This archaic model features three powerful legs, twin cannons on a rotating turret. And here is the open cockpit. Check out my brickshelf (link below) to see more images!
  23. MOC: Steampunk Lightning Cannon

    There is a palpable electricity in the air. Soldier look around for the source, but by then it is too late. They are no more than charred corpses. Introducing the Attatech Lightning Cannon! Capable of harnessing over one billion volts of electricity and channeling it in the direction of your enemy. This little guy started off as some table scrap and eventually turned into something more. This is loosely based off of Scott Westerfeld's book Behemoth. And here's a black and white "period" shot of the cannon in action! For more pictures check out my Brickshelf Gallery!
  24. Spanish Sloop San Lucas

    Here is my newest ship. It is a Spanish Sloop, the San Lucas. It is a 2 gun ship used mostly used for cargo hauling. Here is the Flickr set: http://www.flickr.com/photos/86923596@N06/sets/72157631957213484/with/8165524421/ Sorry for the blurry photos, it had to shot inside due to weather. Thanks for looking! I have also finished a british frigate, and I will post that within a few days.
