North shore of Tortuga, nowadays. This is the Magnetic North, without the low sails, sailing close on a northwester wind to round the reefs of shipwreck bay... The jib just bursted out requiring a sailor on the bowsprit to cut the sheets. Capt Bluebeard : Hurry up ! You, jailbirds ! Man the working ropes ! Trim on ! Freshwater swabs ! Callaghan : Apparently, he's got a real temper ! Dr Thaum : Sure Callaghan, I need this strong temper at the head of the Magnetic North. Especially for that kind of destination. *** Iauln : We are sailing north, mister Church, and we are sailing 8 knots close hauled ! I love this ship ! Church : Yes, my little man, nice start of the trip. ****** Two years of building, the most of time was wasted on those bloody shrouds ( to the devil with them !!! ) This the less bad render I come up with (for the shrouds). For the ship, I'm quite pleased, and a even little bit proud of the result. Thanks to my friend Charly for the pics (he's a professionnal photographer ) C&C welcome as usual, and there will be a more complete thread on the Pirate MOCs Forum.
The Neighborhood Merchant posted a topic in Brethren of the Brick SeasWith recent events transpiring on the brick seas, paranoia and hostile thoughts continue to plague many minds. One under the influence of this paranoia, an unnamed governor (NPC) under the command of Corrington, has ordered a personal heavy frigate to be built to patrol surrounding waters of any and all possible "hostilities". After the ship's completion, it set course for the governor, but oddly on its arrival, the governor has disappeared. The island was charted and the governor was heavily sought after, but with no luck. Perhaps his paranoia got the better of him? Or was it those pesky tribals? The facts of his disappearance may never be unraveled but one fact does remain: the Legion remains docked, waiting... (Apologies for the ship exceeding the background, I was not prepared for the sheer size of this behemoth. ) C7 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_6873 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_6871 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Oddly, the ship was never officially certified to the fleet of Corrington. In fact, the ship's manufacturer has remained anonymous. With these peculiar facts, the crew to the Legion find themselves wondering just who their allegiance is pledged to now? IMG_6867 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Now with the governor's disappearance, the unnamed island is bursting with new life. Pirates, scoundrels, Oleanders, Corries, Eslandolians, and merchants alike all want one thing, to take on the seas with the Legion. Captain William Marcus of the Legion and his crew have now turned to the pleasure of coin. What is to become of the crew of the Legion? Will their colors remain true and their loyalty to Corrington come back, or will they burn their colors and turn to the rebellious side of the Sea Rats? Perhaps even an Eslandolian or Oleander will purchase and reconfigure the ship to serve their empire. IMG_6796 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Thanks for reading my story! I built this ship a while back before I got fully into Eslandola. Since I'm part of Eslandola, I have no use for this Corrington heavy frigate so I'm not licensing it as my own. If you're interested in licensing the ship to your fleet, feel free to DM me! Here are some more pictures of the ship and its fun features: IMG_6863 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_6865 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_6810 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr The flooring to the upper and lower deck can easily be removed to get access to all sections of the ship!

Play Feature by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr One of the swivel corners had a turnable gear that opens up a minifigure display underneath the "HMS Legion" pattern. IMG_6860 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Full crew for the Legion. IMG_6879 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr The front can easily be opened for a quick display of a hat/hair rack to quickly exchange the headgear for the minifigures! Goodbye! by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr Another small ship I made alongside it, Rose Mary. The base is all on hinges so it can be folded and stored inside the stand for the legion. Thanks for viewing! I hope you enjoyed. As always, may your journeys on the brick seas be filled with wealth! Cheers. bam 2 by The Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr More play-features/misc. pictures:
With only one ship larger than class 6 active in the Eslandolan Navy, shipbuilders throughout the islands have been put to work. In Weelond, the new class 7 flagship of the Sea of Storms fleet is finally ready to sail. Her name, Espada de Luna (“Sword of Luna”), and figurehead pay tribute to her duty as a warship and to the deity favored by mariners in the Church of the Two Coins. On the fo’c’sle, a lieutenant oversees crewmen tending to the mainstay. At the waist of the ship, another lieutenant oversees crewmen securing one of the cannons. On the quarterdeck, Captain de Flynt discusses matters with Lieutenant Jacobs. A member of the rigging crew up in the top mast pauses for a moment to take in a view of the deck below. The large stern gallery is topped by artwork of a raised sword against a crescent moon. And so Espada de Luna is ready to take her place in Eslandola’s fleet. --- This has been sitting on my shelf for a couple of months, and I finally finished up the rigging and sails. As always, all C&C welcome.
