  1. Location: Quinnsville Type: Medium Educational Quinnsville had grown quickly over the last few years, and with the establishment of the University of Quinnsville in 619, the students were already crowded on the campus. Fortunately, a grant by a mysterious benefactor had allowed them to build a new library to help ease some of the campus's crowding issues. Today however, someone had illegally parked a small horse drawn cart in front of the main entrance. As Campus security ticketed the cart, an official Corrish Messenger walked towards the library... "So after a party last year, I tell Mayor Brickwood that the library in the main building was too small. Like, you could barely haul kegs through some of the doors. Sure you could get them through the main doors, but like, into the library? It was just too tight a corridor." Said the Count to his loyal accountant Darby. "And I tell him that the WTC could fix the problem with a WTC-Brand hammer, and about 15 minutes. But apparently, the "construction" zoning "laws" in this 'town' prohibit it." Continued the Count, gesturing wildly. "Just please tell me why we're in Quinnsville." Said Darby, understandably exasperated. "Look over there." Said the Count, pointing to a carved sandstone head. "So I tell him that if we can't make the library doors bigger, than we just need a separate library to hold keg parties in." Said the Count. "And he gets annoyed, and starts going off about how that's not at all what university libraries are for." Continued the Count. "Anyways, I say, 'Sir,. You need a party library, I'll buy, do you want a red one or a grey one? He kinda scowls at me, but I took that as permission to fund the construction of a new, better, library with appropriate doors for moving large bottles through. Oh, and I picked grey." Darby looked at a small bust of an unidentifiable head. "They did get my hair wrong." Said the Count, no less enthused. "But true art resists interpretation." "Someone chipped the 'o' off on your title, Count" said Darby, dryly. The two were interrupted by a formal messenger. "Count Mesabi of Debonshire, you have a formal correspondence from the Crown of Corrington." "Thank you gentlemen. The Queen thanks you for your service." Said the Count in a suspiciously formal tone. "Darby, we must get going, we are needed in a formal capacity." Without a moments hesitation, the Count power-walked outside, leaving Darby and the messengers behind. "Count, what's going on?" yelled Darby, hurrying after him. "We have work to do!" the Count said, mounted the horse, and untied it from the post. Darby hurried after him. "The last time we had 'work' to do, I was on a boat in the south for over a year!" he muttered. FIN Thanks for viewing my build! I've been meaning to do an educational build in Quinnsville since @lm71blackbird put out that amazing university build about a year ago, but I never got around to it until now. The build went through a few iterations. Originally the second floor was far more plain, and was essentially white paneling. Fortunately, @Ayrlego gave me some great ideas, including setting the paneling in half a tile, which really made it pop in my opinion. This build is a GOC build, task 5. @Bregir, @Ayrlego , @Captain Dee , @SilentWolf As for the story, no harm intended towards Quinnsville, I always like seeing your settlement grow LM71, and I enjoy being a part of it. Please understand any misnaming, is just me having the Count be rude IC. What is in the Count's mysterious note from the crown? We'll see! (hint, I love Corrington!) Shots without figures
  2. Name: Quinnsville Ownership: The Crown of Corrington Location: Cocovia, west of the Sea of Thieves, in Queens Bay Map: Island of Cocovia by Christian West, on Flickr Mayor: Richard Brickford (@LM71Blackbird) Trade Value: see accounts spreadsheet Town Bank: see accounts spreadsheet Who can own property in Quinnsville: Anyone Who can freebuild in Quinnsville: Anyone Description: A Island discovered as Corrington ships journeyed past the known mapped edges of the Sea of Thieves in 616, the settlement of Quinnsville was founded by the captain of one of the exploring ships, Sir Thomas Smaugton. He was Sailing under both the flag of the Empire of Corrington, as well as the MAESTRO trade company which still holds a slight presence in the settlement. Mayor Smaugton contributed to much of the town's progress, but sadly, the Pearl of Cocovia had not seen much development since the retirement and mysterious disappearance of it's beloved mayor. Fortunately, one Richard Brickford, volunteered to step in and nurse the abandoned settlement back to health. Now under his leadership Quinnsville has quickly risen to prominence on Cocovia and is a flourishing settlement on the verge of becoming a Large City.

  3. A Show of Resilience The lose of the mighty HMS Resilience was a hard blow to the moral of Her Majesty's Royal Navy. The devastating defeat to the Loti warships in a failed naval encounter resulted in one ship captured and the Lightning - which once defeated a fleet of 3 black-flag pirate vessels singlehandedly - being set ablaze and sent to depths of the New Haven Sea. The only solace was in the destruction of the Resilience by a small crew aboard a fireship. 20200921_183522 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Today, Mayor Brickford is out on one of the many piers of Quinnsville's always busy harbor with Captain James Earling watching through a spyglass the newly commissioned Ships of the Royal Navy, the HMS Indomitable and the HMS Thunderclap. May Poseidon grant them protection as they sail under the flag of Corrington and for the Queen! ----------------------------------------- A small Sistership build to use one of the two free sistership licenses that Corrington has won during Challenge III and to show off my new bearskin shakos! One license will be used to sistership the HMS Resilience. C&C are welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking!
  4. Royal Marines of Quinnsville Once the news that Oleon had led an all out assault on Terraversa, Major Nathaniel Brickford was called back from active duty on Brickford Landing to bolster the defenses of Quinnsville. Troop Inspection 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Shortly after arriving back the Mayor and the Major were both present for the first inspection of Her Majesty's new battalion Royal Marines to be stationed in Quinnsville. Troop Inspection 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr And a fine looking unit they are at that! Surely they will strike fear in the hearts of Her Majesty's enemies both far and near. Troop Inspection 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr ------------------------------------------- With Quinnsville reaching Large City Status, it raises my troop raising capacity to 90 men per MRCA. Here a small portion of the new battalion joining the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Quinnsville Fusiliers companies. C&C are welcome and appreciated. Thanks for looking!
  5. Waterfront Cooperage As Quinnsville develops into a larger trading hub, more and more diverse tradesmen are setting up shop in the City. The most recent addition to the already busy waterfront is a Cooper and his apprentice. Cooperage 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr While the master cooper does his craft inside, his apprentice busily cuts wood to the the right length for various size barrels. Cooperage 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr All the while a young boy earns a few Doubloons sweeping up the sawdust from the pier. Cooperage 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr On the roof, an aspiring artist paints the view of the numerous ships that dock in the bustling port city. Cooperage 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Inside, the Master Cooper assembles the barrels with great skill and precision. Cooperage 6 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr After the boards are position and locked into place, the barrel is set over a fire before being fit to hold liquids. Cooperage 7 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr With the addition of this craft to Cocovia, Barrels will no longer need to be imported, but can be procured directly from the docks before leaving for new adventures! ----------------------------------------- The last build required to more Quinnsville to the next city level! C&C are welcome and appreciated and thanks for looking!
  6. Quinnsville Cathedral For far to long the ever growing city of Quinnsville has been without a compass for religious direction. Since it's founding by Sir Smaugton, it has been riddled with gambling hubs and places of debauchery. Furthermore, Oleon's Order of the Faith has seen rapid expansion as far east as Mesabi Landing and possibly even further under the guidance of Canon Francois. The more relaxed values of the Faith that belong to The Church of Corrington however, can not be soon forgotten. The religious structure set up by generations before will not soon be forgotten in Quinnsville with the completed construction of a brand new Royal Cathedral within the city limits. 4.1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr The new cathedral will serve many functions in the city aside from a religious hub. It will be a place for the locals to gather and socialize with one another and a safe haven to congregate in the event of a raid as the church was built far enough away from the water as to be out of cannon range. 4.3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Mayor Brickford and his wife are in attendance for the first mass in the Cathedral. He is very grateful for the bishop and his priests coming all the way from the Corrington mainland in order to make this new endeavor in a success in the isles. 4.4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr With the high vaulted ceilings the beautiful and ornate organ will certainly be the talking point of every week. With the doors to the building open, you can almost hear the breathtaking notes from the harbour on a slow day. You can most certainly hear the church bells every hour however, whether you want to or not! 4.5 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Surely many more stupendous things are in store for Quinnsville's future! ---------------------------------------------------- At long last I have finally built a Royal property for Quinnsville so it can jump to the next level! I have gone through many of ideas and and started a lot of builds before deciding on building a Cathedral. Several reasons were considered when building this. Beside the couple of obvious ones to boost Quinnsville, not much has been written on the religions of many of the nations in BoBs. Mostly with good reason, but as Corrington is a England type country, a well structured church organization is something I feel is in order, so I took some license to do so. Now on to technical stuff! I intend to license this as a Royal Arts & Culture build upon approval from leadership. The Cathedral consists of approx. 14.5k bricks and has a baseplate footprint of 13,824 studs, so it most certainly surpasses the 10k stud minimum. It does feature an interior with pews and an organ. The way I created the stained glass windows does however prevent me from doing a top down interior render. For top down viewing of the whole build though, please check the spoiler below. C&c are welcome and appreciated and thanks for looking!
  7. "The time has come for Quinnsville to put it's best effort forward." "You are most certainly correct Mayor. With all the unrest in the farthest extents of the colonies, there is no better time then the present to launch more ships." "Launch more ships indeed! And the Bigger the better as well. Now lets get all the pesky paperwork finished so you can get back to managing the harbor!" Vingette 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr ------------------------------------------- A small build for the purpose of increasing my ship limit. C&C are of course welcome and appreciated!
  8. Shot Tower With all the talk about war with the Lotus Kingdom and the constant threat from the Sea Rats, the always advancing City of Quinnsville has taken it upon itself to begin full-scale production of various munitions for the Corrish settlements throughout the New World. The first of such establishments is a shot tower that has been constructed on the outskirts of the city. Shot Tower 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr First, the lead is turned molten and then dropped from the top of the tower. On the journey down it becomes spherical before landing into a collection container filled with water. Shot Tower 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Then the lead balls are inspected for roundness and then sorted by caliber. Shot Tower 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Today, both Mayor Brickford and Major Brickford are visiting the Shot tower to observe the process and find out if it was a wise decision to construct such a larger contraption! Shot Tower 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr After the shot has been confirmed to be of sufficient roundness, some samples are tested in the shooting gallery behind the tower. Mayor Brickford always takes the opportunity to fire a musket and relive the glory days in the Royal Army of Her Majesty. Shot Tower 6 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr -------------------------------------------------------- My newest and biggest real brick build for BoBs has arrived! I recently got some Bricklink orders and really wanted to make something round and I figure a shot tower would be a fitting build! Some inspiration goes to @Darnok, for I wouldn't even know about a shot tower if it wasn't for his own rendition of one. This will be licensed as a large factory. C&C are welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking!
  9. [GoC - Cruisers of Terra Nova] Post-Ship HMS Black Panther The Quinnsville shipyards have produced yet another vessel which it intends to donate to the Royal Navy for use in protecting Corrington's investments. The 18-gun, post-ship HMS Black Panther has just been launched and has entered the proving phase before joining the naval base in King's Harbour. Frigate 3.4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr In the gundeck she can carry eighteen 24-pounders and has an assortment of small cannon and deck guns for signaling and if necessary, boarding. Frigate 3.5 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Down below, the first 24-pounders are being positioned. The rest of the armament will follow once the order has been fulfilled by the Quinnsville Cannon Foundry. Frigate 3.6 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr To Rear-admiral Fletcher, In the interest of the Nation of Corrington and all her settlements she protects, I, Mayor Richard Brickford of the city of Quinnsville, hereby donate the recently completed ship, the HMS Black Panther. I believe that she will prove quite useful to the Terra Novian fleet that so bravely protects the sometime dangers waters that we call home. The proving is going quite well so far, and if she passes your inspection I do believe she will make a fine addition to the fleet. As the other vessels now in the service of Her Majesty's Royal Navy, the handy-work of our hardworking shipwrights should meet your quality standards. In Her Majesty's service Richard Brickford Mayor of Quinnsville --------------------------------------------------- My 3rd and final entry for the GoC Oaken Shield Tasks, the HMS Black Panther! I'm quite happy how the tumble home turned out overall. The figurehead may be a bit large, but I like how it looks in the end. C&C are welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking! @Bregir @Ayrlego @SilentWolf @Captain Dee
  10. University of Quinnsville As one of the next steps towards building Quinnsville into one of Corrington's premier settlements in the new world, a large university has been constructed. Within the walls of the enormous structure, everything from advanced mathematics, cartography, and the sciences are taught. QV 3.6 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr There are many classrooms on the first two floors and the third floor houses the resident students who are studying from abroad. QV 3.7 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Out front is a small garden and statue dedicated to the Secretary of Science, one of the most prominent figures in the Parliament of Science. ----------------------------------------- A build I have been working on for some time. It was originally meant to be a Royal property for the city of Quinnsville, but I lost the motivation to build an interior for such a large building. And, without the interior, it wouldn't qualify it for a Royal anyway. So now I intended to license it as a large property for the GoC mission 'Higher Education' for task #3. C&C are welcome and appreciated and thanks for looking! @Bregir @Ayrlego @SilentWolf @Captain Dee
  11. 1st Quinnsville Light Dragoons and 1st Quinnsville Company of Foot (Rifleman) The next graduating classes of the Quinnsville Military Academy have just received their commissions in Her Majesty's Army. In normal fashion, the graduating class goes on parade through the town before they settle down into full military service in Her Majesty's Armed Forces. Rifleman and Dragoons 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr The 1st Quinnsville Light Dragoons have passed with flying colors and proudly ride upon the finest horses brought from Elizabethville, the producer of the finest horses   in the Brick Seas. Rifleman_Dragoons 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Joining them are the crack shots of the 1st Quinnsville Company of Foot or simply, the 1st Rifleman Company. These are the best marksman that Cocovia has to offer. They are easily distinguished from the Corrington Regulars due to their green coats and dark trousers. This allows them to remain unseen until they choose to fire upon an unsuspecting enemy! Rifleman_Dragoons 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr ----------------------------------- Two simple builds to raise the 60 men per MRCA limit of Quinnsville. 30 Dragoons and 30 Rifleman. Also, I just really enjoy build military troops. C&C are welcome, but please keep in mind these builds are just to show the troops for licensing purposes.
  12. Their offices in Quinnsville had just recently been set up properly, but the WTC had already establish local business opportunities some time ago. The island of Cocovia was known for its fertile grounds, especially for coffee and cocoa, so it seemed natural to claim some new land from the jungle for an agricultural venture. With cocoa already grown on a large plantation nearby, and another one near King's Harbour, it had been decided to go for coffee. Highly profitable, coffee was still yet to be grown in commercial quantities in Corrington - so the WTC might have a first mover advantage on the market! Having... acquired... the necessary seeds from an ETTC research site in King's Harbour, the first coffee trees were growing already, while parts of the plantation were still in the process of being set up. Fighting back the jungle proved to be easier said than done! .. The local WTC Operator was discussing the progress with the plantations foreman: "We need to get this up and running as soon as possible. I promised results to Mr. Mordo, and I do not plan to disappoint him." "But sir, I need more men. The conditions here are tough, and even then the trees only grow so fast. It will take time, no matter what." "I guess. Still, hasten your efforts. The sooner we can sell overpriced coffee to gullible minifigs, the better." "Will do, sir. By the way, what is it with all the gold?" "We are a royal trade company after all! It also helps with moving our income around. For tax purposes, you know. The last thing we want is to pay the Crown..." ================================= Licensed as a medium plantation in Quinnsville. A wide shot of the full build: One more aerial view: Since this is for the GoC-initiative, a shoutout to @Ayrlego, @Bregir, @Captain Dee and @SilentWolf. If possible I would really appreciate a quick response if this build is fine, since it takes quite a bit of room, and I fear our cats might soon find it... interesting. I was unable to pick coffee as a category when licensing this, which I found very odd (I picked "Tropical Fruit" instead, which coffee technical is). An oversight in the licensing form? This also might call for an update of the island bonus list. As always, C&C are appreciated, thanks for watching!
  13. Saltpeter Mine Many Months ago, the Clerks in the Colonial Ministry found what appeared to be some lost prospecting samples from Quinnsville dated from May 616! Upon further inspection, it was made known to be of a rare saltpeter deposit. Namely the first in all of the New World. Because of the importance of such a discovery and with the help of the WTC now operating in Quinnsville, a mine was set up to extract this ore from the depths of Cocovia! saltpeter mine 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr One of several veins found, here in the corner of a cliff face, a mine shaft has begun to take shape with the help of ever useful gunpowder and hand tools. Off to one side, the foreman is inspecting a few of the recently extracted samples. -------------------------------- The saltpeter mine in Quinnsville is finally up a running! C&C welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking!

    [GoC] Northern Garrison

    [GoC] Northern Garrison Today, mayor Richard Brickford was making the trek up to one of the garrisons of the Quinnsville Fusiliers. It was located on a northern section of what is known as the Fist. Richard was going up to meet with the garrison commander. The mayor was accompanied by a few regulars that were heading up to relieve the currently stationed regulars. The men were cooking up a fine lunch of roasted fish before they would accompany the mayor back into town. Up on the roof, a roofer was replacing a few damaged shingles. Island weather can be rough on building at times. The Garrison commander was happy to see the mayor and even happier to report that everything was operating smoothly in the Northern reaches of Quinnsville. ------------------------------------- Interior pics in the spoiler! My second entry for the Redcoats Rule! GoC project. I had quite a lot of fun building this one. This is a first time for the roof design and angled building style for me. C&C are welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking! @Bregir @Ayrlego @Captain Dee @SilentWolf
  15. Location: Quinnsville Type: Small Commercial / Troop Raising The WTC Rising Sun had arrived after a long voyage in Quinnsville to deliver it's precious cargo. But the WTC had much to do, and troops were being loaded onboard as cargo was offloaded. [/url] Madam Dogtooth supervised the work, as she prepared for her next voyage. [/url] FIN Small dock build from me raising more troops. C&C appreciated.
  16. To: Mayor Richard Brickford, Quinnsville, Cocovia @LM71Blackbird And: Governor Jonathan Cooke, King's Harbour, Cocovia @Bregir From: Cathy Derr, captaining the Narwal, port of Fatu Hiva, île d'Or 20 December 618 My dear lords, It has come to my attention that the Mayor would like to test the defences of the Large Town Quinnsville. I would like to take that challenge as my men and woman of the Derr's expeditionary light infantry and the crew of my barque Narwal are in need of some training. I can attempt a raid on your town in the coming month, with your permission of course. But I will not disclose the exact date of my arrival on your shores as to make it a better surprise. Also I will not fire life shots, my bullets and cannonballs will be replaced with yellow paint cartridges as to indicate a hit, but not make real damage. I hope you will take similar arrangements. I look forward to your reply as to agree upon the details. Fair winds, Cathy Derr, act.Capt. of the Narwal,

    [COR FB1] Dockside Roper

    Dockside Roper On a bustling section of the Quinnsville pier is the shop of one of the local ropers. Rope-maker 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr The two men that run the shop are never in need of customers. Rope-maker 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr As fast as one can make the rope, Rope-maker 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr someone comes in and buys it all! Rope-maker 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr I guess that's what you get when you make some of the finest quality rope on all of Cocovia! ------------------------------------------ A few more shots of the build: ----------------------------------------- This will be a medium Artisan for Quinnsville. Only a few more builds before Quinnsville will reach Large City Status! As always, C&C are welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking!
  18. Marine Surveyor On the docks of Quinnsville's busy harbor, is the office of the marine surveyor. QV 2.1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr They are in charge of checking the goods and state of the smaller vessels and in unison with the harbor master keep the docks running smoothly. It takes great skill to perform this job so the harbor doesn't become a complete mess! ----------------------------------- As my first build in quite some time, I just wanted to do something simple. This will be licensed as a Large Commerce in Quinnsville for December. This isn't my best or most elaborate work but, as always, C&C are welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking!
  19. More Marching to Quinnsville The newest graduating class of the Quinnsville Military Academy are out for some drills and exercise. These 2 companies will join the 1st Quinnsville Fusiliers Company as the 2nd and 3rd Quinnsville Fusiliers companies. This will help to strengthen Quinnsville's defenses as it continues to grow into one of Corrington's premiere settlements in the New World! Troops 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr ------------------------------------- Just a quick MOC to go along with the recruitment of some more troops for Quinnsville. Nothing overly special but as usual, C&C are welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking!
  20. Quinnsville Weapon Emporium Not far from the busy city square of the bustling city of Quinnsville is a gunsmith. The Quinnsville weapon emporium is known for producing the highest quality firearms and swords on all of Cocovia. Weapon Emporium 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr It is a small little operation with limited production but it allows for finer weapons to be forged. Out back is where the swordsmith hammers away to perfect the shape of his latest saber. Weapon Emporium 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Inside the shop the master gunsmith carefully works on his newest masterpiece on the workbench with his trusty dog at his side. Weapon Emporium 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr A marine sergeant has been sent to put in a special order for a crate of marksman rifles. The troops in Quinnsville are being trained in all of the latest military techniques and demand the best equipment. Weapon Emporium 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr ----------------------------------- Another real brick build! This will be a small artisan for Quinnsville. C&C are welcome and appreciated and thanks for looking! A few more angles can be seen under the spoiler:
  21. Quinnsville Lighthouse Lighthouse 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr With the rapid growth in Quinnsville after getting a new mayor appointed, a lighthouse was erected to help guide ships safely into the harbor. Mayor Richard Brickford is visiting the new structure and meeting the lighthouse keeper who will be responsible for keeping the flame burning. Lighthouse 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Lighthouse 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr While the Mayor strikes up a conversation with the keeper, a Corrington solider from nearby Fort Annetta unloads some supplies for the lighthouses new inhabitant. --------------------------------------- I recently went through a huge brick purge (Getting rid of everything not LEGO) and a mass organization of all by bricks. From that comes my first build for BoBs made out of real bricks! Expect more builds of this type in the future. C&C are welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking! This will be a medium Artisan for Quinnsville. More pic from different angles in the spoiler:
  22. Class 5 Brig, "RSND Dolphin" With the construction of the new Quinnsville shipyards, the shipwrights have been rather busy! One of the shipyards most recent additions that they have produced is a lightly armed brig. Imperial brig 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Even though it carries only 8 guns, they are 8 rather large 32 pounders. Imperial brig 6 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr It has a small but well lit stern, thanks to its 6 lanterns. Imperial brig 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial brig 5 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr To make up for it's small number of guns, it is stocked with plenty of weapons in case a conflict involves a boarding. Imperial brig 7 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr The Captain's quarters, is small but includes everything one might need on a short voyage. Imperial brig 8 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Thanks for checking out my ship! I built this back in January, before I even joined BotBS, but I figured it would be a nice addition to my other ships. C&C are welcome and appreciated!
  23. Quinnsville Gunboats With tensions always high on the Brick Seas with constant threats of pirate attacks, some settlements are deploying small gunboats and gun sloops to help protect local waters. Quinnsville has recently launched 3 new gunboats for the purpose of protecting their harbor. Gunboat 10 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr They were all three built differently in order to pull on strengths of different sizes and maneuverability in the heat of battle. Gunboat 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Gunboat 5 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr They all feature a frontward facing cannon and the rear is protected by a quick firing deck gun for extra protection. Gunboat 6 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Gunboat 7 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr The largest of the three was equipped with a sail for longer patrols in order to give the oarsmen a rest after long durations at sea. Gunboat 8 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Gunboat 9 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr ------------------------------ Here's some little class 1 and class 2 gunboats for Quinnsville. They were a new type of build for me, and I like how they turned out. C&C are welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking!
  24. Class 7 Frigate "Marlin" Imperial Flagship 1 - red version by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Out of the Quinnsville shipyards comes a lightly armed frigate! She features a spacious gun deck and has plenty of room for troops or cargo. (OOC) Only the first picture is done in Corrington colors. The reason for that is because I originally built it for Lego Ideas and was to lazy to render another 10 pictures showing off all the angles and features. Nothing is different except for the colors and sails. Enjoy! Imperial Flagship 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 5 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 6 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 7 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 8 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 9 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 10 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 11 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 12 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 13 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Like I said above, I built this model for Lego Ideas, which is why the blue color scheme. It was supposed to be the ultimate Imperial Flagship. It's true colors are the Red, White, and Black though! Anyway, thanks for checking it out! C&C are welcome and appreciated! Not quite sure on the class though, she is 9 hulls long which would put her as a class 9 or 10, but she only has the lower gun deck and the top deck. If @Bregir or someone else could clarify I would be most grateful!
  25. The fishing and trading skiffs and rowboats of Quinnsville Small Fishing Boats 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr In the summer months when the Brick Seas are relatively calm, the Quinnsville fisherman and traders brave the waters to put food on their tables. Small Fishing Boats 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Some row close to shore to net the schools of fish that swim in great abundance. Small Fishing Boats 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Others use a rod and reel to catch fish, but occasionally get more than anticipated... Small Fishing Boats 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Some of the larger skiffs can travel greater distances to nearby harbors to trade cocoa and spices among other things. Small Fishing Boats 5 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr After a hard days work, the boats are dragged up onto shore and their supplies are put into elevated houses for safe keeping until they can secure a buyer or until the seas are calm enough to travel to another port. Here is a build for me to license some class 0 boats. I also have been wanting to try out some small hull designs, and I especially like how the larger skiffs turned out! C&C are welcome and appreciated! @Bregir I would like to license all 10 of these small boats. The first two boats in the second picture are just standard rowboats, but I believe I added enough to make them licensable. There are four of the larger skiffs that have sails and one without a sail. They all feature different colors, cargo, and crews so I think they classify as all different boats as well. I think I know the answer, but are they too small to be classified as class 1 boats? Lastly, the three small brick built rowboats are all different in the same way as the skiffs. I don't plan on licensing the beach portion at all.
