    HMS Surprise

    Just browsed through the forum and could not find this anywhere. Think I just forgot to share it. Mentioned her some time ago in the General MOC-Discussion, WIP-Help, and Teaser Thread. If she is hiding somewhere in the forum, I do hope someone has the chops to remove this topic. Scale 1:40’ish L: 150 cm B: 26 cm H: 114 Bricks approx. 19300. Looking back at my earlier designs I found that my version of the HMS Surprise, just like the HMS Ontario, was somewhat wanting. This is a model of the HMS Surprise launched as the corvette Unité in 1794. In 1796, The Royal Navy conquered, refitted and renamed her. She later on chased pirates in the Caribbean for several years. The ship plays a central role in the Aubery-Maturin stories. This includes the movie from 2003 Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. The HMS Rose, which was later, renamed HMS Surprise, plays the “role” as HMS Surprise. Neat, but somewhat confusing. Being notoriously bad at taking photos of my creations there is some Renders below, these are also in the General MOC-Discussion, WIP-Help, and Teaser Thread. …but you need to look at the LDD file to get a view of the details of the creation. Find it at MOCPAGES http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/452403 She has been on display at LW Copenhagen 2019. A Swedish AFOL has taken some fine Pictures from the event on this link. Hope it is ok that I link to this https://www.flickr.com/photos/86394332@N03/47062421172/in/album-72157705321073761/ There are also some more photos including WIP at my Flickr page. https://www.flickr.com/photos/131641614@N06/with/46031790204/

    Another frenchy

    Hello, I am Franck from France ! after my darkage, I fall again on bricks since 2012, and I begin to expose since 2015 (some small scenes and mocs) I am interested by History, so many scenes I make are about military history : as old ages (Greek or Roman), XIXth century (I begin a 1870 war scene), and essentially WW2. As I like some SF or apocalyptic scenes, I try to make some scene about StarWars or Metro 2033
  5. for a future exposhow, I prepare a little scene about 1870 First, here are the French, I will dot some german next time
  6. Hi everyone, I'm here today to present you my latest creation : a theatre stage and is modular background. Inspired by the look of one of the most important public theatres in France during the seventeenth century - the Théâtre du Palais-Royal –, this MOC makes possible to represent all the comedies you want ! The main part of this MOC is the stage itself and, of course, the arc of stage with the curtain. The arc uses some Lego architecture building techniques to represent with the most accuracy the Palais-Royal's arc of stage as we know it from archive's documents. This is the very one place where Moliere has represented his most famous plays. Thanks to a few techniques pieces hidden inside the structure, the built is very strong and can be easily handled without breaking. At the back of the theater, there is a very simple mecanisme who makes possible the openning of a trappe on the stage. There also a little door who makes possible to stock extra pieces and minifigure's accessories under the stage. These pieces and minifigure's accessories come from the other part of this project. Indeed, beside the stage, this MOC come with a secondary kit of pieces. Inspired by the rebuilt's process "3 in 1" from the Creator's modeles, this set of pieces makes possible to build several stage background and accessories to represent multiple wealthy interiors : the « salon » who come with a sedan chair ; the scientist's cabinet with a telescope ; the diner's room with a table, an armchair and a carpet ; and the bedroom with, of course, the bed ! And finaly, this MOC uses five minifigures who represent actors and actresses. As real actor changing costume between differents plays, these minifigures can exchange heads, hairs and accessories to incarne different characters. This MOC make possible to represent at least six comedies of Molière, the most famous playwriter on french literature : Dom Juan, Tartuffe, The Misanthrope, The Imaginary Invalid (Le Malade imaginaire), The Learned Ladies (Les Femmes savantes) and The Affected Young Ladies (Les Précieuses ridicules). But, of course, minifigures and pieces can be used to build any other play ! I have presented this MOC on Lego Ideas because I think it could be a really cool Lego set for everyone ! So, if you like it, you could support it and share it ! ;-) (you also can see other picture with more close up on Ideas) Thank you everyone, don't hesitate to leave a comment to tell me what do you think of this MOC !
  7. I am attempting to create a 18th century French soldiers (i.e. From French and Indian war or American Revolution) and this is what I was able to come up with. I was hoping to find a template for light gray coat but was unable to. From most images I've seen the French wore gray in the French and Indian war and white after. But based on military records the coat of the period was generally a white or off white. The decals were printed by http://www.saber-scorpion.com/shop Feel free to provide some feedback. Thanks.

    32 gun frigate Concorde (French, ca.1760-1780)

    Hey folks, This creation was finished in 2012, among with the rest of my fleet of 8 vessels. 6 of these ships have been built in parallel using some exciting new techniques that I boldly labelled "nextgen" as it took build quality to a whole new level. Essential features are a innovative hull technique (that essentially show I could have done it without prefabs, retaining only the lower parts), complete accessible interior, and drastically improved sails and rigging. For some reasons I never posted any of these ships, so tonight I just took my smartphone and made a start. Concorde is a 32-gun Frigate which was modelled after French ships from roughly 1760-1780. The colour scheme, sail plan and size and gun count are roughly historically accurate. However, she still offers herself to all kinds of play and postures, because I believe a Lego creation should be good for more than just first looks. Enjoy!

    "Trois" French Wine Bar

    Hi everyone. I've been away for a while, but have been very busy working on my second modular building. Please check the link above to see lots of pics. If this is your first visit to my Flickr, welcome and hi! I'm a 42 year AFOL who's just rediscovered the wonder of Lego building. Do let me know your thoughts on any of my builds, I am always very keen to hear your feedback. ****************************************************************************** "TROIS!" FRENCH WINE BAR ****************************************************************************** - my second modular building! I decided to spend a lot more time on this one... or more accurately: it's TAKEN me a long time! Anyway, I'm really pleased with the result. After my first attempt (see Al's Stars N' Stripes Grill on my Flickr), I decided I wanted to do something with a lot more detail on the outside. A bit more colour too, as well as a nicely packed interior design too. "Trois" is a snazzy wine bar. It includes three main floors/ sections (plus the roof!): 1ST FLOOR - MAIN BAR The main bar features include a bar, coffee machine, bottles of wine / spirits / confectionary display An angled door leads to a back room (with some kind of electrical unit) etc, which leads out onto the alley out back. 2ND FLOOR - LOUNGE BAR - An extension of the downstairs - just more space for sitting / sipping! Also leads out onto a small balcony with wooden decking. I am particularly pleased with this little corner - I really like the lamp and the rather ornate drainpipe. Also on this floor is a small landing that leads to.... an elevator! Not a working one unfortunately, but you get the idea - it takes people up to the bathroom on the top floor... 3RD FLOOR / W/C / UTILITY ROOM A simple unisex bathroom. Features two toilet cubicles (apologies for the bad lighting; I couldn't get my camera in there very well!) NB. Obviously the toilet cubicle doors should really be plain white, but I don't have any yet! The transparent doors could prove a little embarrassing for my minifigs! A small handbasin with faucet, and finally there's a small storage / utility room. Let me know what you think guys - always great to get feedback / suggestions etc. - Craig, April 2016 "Trois" French Wine Bar by Craig Brooks, on Flickr

  11. Hello, here is my latest collaboration, this time to commemorate the 600th anniversary of the battle that provided William Shakespeare with material for one his greatest plays, Henry V. The term, “Band of Brothers” comes directly from this famous play. King Henry V of England himself fought hand-to-hand during the Battle of Agincourt, and even though badly outnumbered his forces crushed the French nobility, changing the political landscape of Europe at the time. For more detail, click on the pictures below: In remembrance of this event, members of WAMALUG decided to both build a huge castle-related LEGO diorama, and also to launch our own history-related group called HistoryLUG. Built during the span of one of our monthly meetings, we used Magnus Lauglo’s Modular Landscape System, our trees and foliage, Lady Kianna’s buildings and almost 500 of our realistic castle-theme minifigs. This only took about four hours to complete. From Wikipedia: The Battle of Agincourt was a major English victory in the Hundred Years' War. The battle took place on Friday, 25 October 1415 (Saint Crispin's Day), near modern-day Azincourt, in northern France. Henry V's victory at Agincourt, against a numerically superior French army, crippled France and started a new period in the war. After the victory, Henry V married the French king's daughter, and their son, later Henry VI of England and Henry II of France, was made heir to the throne of France as well as of England. Henry V led his troops into battle and participated in hand-to-hand fighting. During the battle, his brother was wounded badly and fell to the ground. King Henry ran to his brother's side and stood over him to defend against the French until his brother was carried off the field: The French king of the time, Charles VI, did not command the French army himself as he suffered from severe illnesses. Instead, the French were commanded by Constable Charles d'Albret, who perished during the conflict: This battle is notable for the use of the English longbow in very large numbers, with English and Welsh archers forming most of Henry's army. From Shakespeare’s play, King Henry’s Saint Crispin’s Day speech prior to the battle: And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by, From this day to the ending of the world, But we in it shall be remember'd; We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he to-day that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile, This day shall gentle his condition: And gentlemen in England now a-bed Shall think themselves accursed they were not here, And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day. Hope you like it! Comments welcome, Cheers, Gary

    Battle of Waterloo: "Steady lads!"

    Well, Michael Ozzie beat me to it today with his outstanding La Belle Alliance, but here is my build celebrating the 200th Anniversary of this major event. Click on the picture for more detail: 200 years ago today, a truly epic and historical battle raged between three armies on sodden fields near the Belgian hamlet of Waterloo. The conflict determined the fate of Napoleon Bonaparte once and for all, and changed Europe forever as Great Britain became the dominant power over France, and Germany's power began to rise in the world as well. To commemorate this historic anniversary and pay tribute to the brave souls who fought and perished there, here is a quick build of that iconic Napoleonic Era infantry formation, the Regimental Square (or putting it more accurately, a corner of one...) Brave French Cuirassiers (Heavy Cavalry) charge this indomitable formation, the British Square, to no avail; in spite of all their courage, armor and powerful mounts, they never break through that long day as every British Square which had time to form never broke (though some units such as the Kings German Legion (KGL) 8th Line Battalion were caught mid-formation by the French cavalry and were decimated). British officers on horseback called for the rank and file to remain steady, and in general they did, allowing the Duke of Wellington's multi-national army to survive long enough for the arrival of the third army, the Prussians, to tip the balance. There should be bayonets on the end of those muskets, which is why it was so hard for cavalry to charge into a RS like this one. The LEGO musket barrel shape prevents anything but 2nd-party elements from working well, and being a bit of a purist (apart from that flag from Cape Madness) I won't use those non-LEGO parts. JBIronworks and I are currently working on a massive build of the key farmhouse in the center of the British line at Waterloo, La Haye Sainte, defended by the 2nd Light Infantry Battalion of the KGL; we should have it done in a few weeks so keep an eye out for it. Originally I had wanted to post La Haye Sainte today but we ran out of time. We will certainl finish it and it will be posted here in a month or so. Cheers!

    Treacherous Tides Video Series

    Recently I and some friends decided to create a Lego Pirates Video Comic Series. The production's title is: "Treacherous Tides" and is in the works, aiming for release of chapter one in early May 2015. It's "just for fun" but we plan on a very immerse story line. It's not stop motion, rather, still frame images with ken burns and sound effects in addition to some cool music. We won't be doing any voice acting, instead we will be using speech bubbles. Here is a preview: (Don't watch the Batman one, it's old and not very entertaining, as it has no sound or motion.) Send me some kool names, and we might eventually use them in the series!

    "Vive L’Empereur!" 200th Anniversary of Napoleon's R

    MOC based on painting. Hello, here's my LEGO build of Karl von Steuben’s painting, Napoleon returned from Elba, which shows an event that happened 200 years ago today: For closer view click on the picture. In Napoleon’s quest to reclaim France after being exiled to Elba, March 7th, 1815 was one of those unique moments when just one little wrong move, and modern history would have been drastically different. The 5th Regiment, supposedly loyal to newly-restored King Louis XVIII, was sent to arrest Bonaparte after his return from exile at Elba. The senior general in command, Marshall Michel Ney, promised the king that he “would bring Napoleon back to Paris in an iron cage.” Always a gambler, Napoleon deliberately presented himself a target, “Here I am,” he declared to troops formerly loyal to him, “Kill your Emperor, If you wish.” If just one soldier had pulled the trigger…but instead the emotion of the moment swept through the ranks and they surged forward to him in idolization. Thirteen days later, he would ride into Paris, beginning his last period of rule, known as The Hundred Days. The end result was the Battle of Waterloo. My build, and the orginal painting, Napoleon returned from Elba by Karl von Steuben. For closer views click on each. In celebration of the 200th Anniversary of this history-changing battle, at Brickfair Virginia this year there will be a massive collaboration to render Waterloo in LEGO, with over 1000 minifigs, terrain, La Haye Sainte farm, and hopefully Hougoumont as well. Here is our FLICKR group for the collaboration: http://www.flickr.co...s/legowaterloo/ Hope you like the build! More Napoleonic builds are on the way...
