The captain got promoted,
I will be working on a new group picture the next week,
My original Idea was to photoshop ships from different builders into one picture but that seems to be practically very difficult.
A single ship doesn't describe the group well I think so I'll go for a picture of different ships of my own.
I haven't thought up the set-up yet but I was thinking to add my Flying Dutchman and some of these ships:

The main difficulty will be technical: how to place the ships, a big clear background :S

and BTW, why didnt you make it Admirals conversation?? then we would all have been promoted big time, hehe,

Well, the commodore isn't going to last forever either.
I'm not a real expert on these military ranks, since the general was "promoted" to captain it doesn't make sense anymore :P

Anyway, your siggies are probably the only two I can trust the at the wheel of my precious ship, just don't start fighting each other :P
(hint, that might be what you will be doing in the MOC or maybe I let that Heath 'kik36' Flor guy make some trouble, that you can fight him (although he hasn't been active lately)
Either way, there's bound to happen some heavy stuff on the poop deck.

..what are you thinking :O
my FD is not a toilet :P

Anyway, about CP, be patient, there's a minimum time in between blog material that has to be respected (that way the viewers have time to check out what new there is).
I do advise you to always add a picture in your posts right away, that way a blogger can get to it right away, I noticed a blogger had already replied.

Btw, it's kind of unusual to literally ask to get blogged, I'm not a blogger myself anyway, I do not decide what is blogged ultimately.
Besides, your Ship is brilliant, you don't need me to tell them that, have confidence, you'll get blogged sure enough ;)

I see, yeah, posting pictures in the forum is a bit different, mocpages is ideal to host pictures, you simply have to go on your Golden Whale mocpage, right-click one of your pictures and select "open image in new window" (or whatever it sais on your PC) that you copy the url of the new window and when you post in the CP forum there's an icon that sais "insert image", click that and it will ask for an url, that's where you paste the url. Just make sure that it is an url of the image only (image in seperate window)

Sebeus, you have a point about the flat bottom of my hull. This complicates things :/ I'll have to do a bit of experimenting with that hull shape. I'd have to get a BL order to get those pieces considering I only have a few. Luckily it would only cost be 10$ (approximately 8 EUR).
Anyways I'll let you guys know how it works in a day or so.

I don't know if any of you are familiar with the Assassin's Creed games, but I was watching some videos of the new game, which takes place during the American Revolution, on youtube and I found out that you can have ship battles in it! I know this doesn't really have a lot to do with this group, but it sort of has to do with ships :P

I disagree, once you play it it isn't over. That is why there is free-roam, though I guess even that gets boring. Plus in Brotherhood, Revelations, and the new one there is multiplayer.

Well, I must say I spent a lot of time playing assassins creed and I might be quickly bored :P
I never played the multiplayer :/ don't know why I think something came in between.

Those ship battles are not very realistic, although the game has to advance (the way the ships sail around in all directions at high speed :P and sinking so quickly :P )
nevertheless, it's very nice, a super realistic ship battle would be boring probably :P

On another note, I decided to dump the black pearl style cabin on my ship, I'm going for a more typical warship stern now.
With one of the most important BP details is gone, I don't think people will recognize my ship as a 'repainted' Black Pearl' :P

I developped my organic shipbuilding technique (although not entirely finished) and next to that there's the traditional basic brick hull and the more refined technique using SNOTted slope pieces.

i know its a very common technic, (or now i do) i just havent seen it so much, not in that variation, and somewhere i has to start, right,
i know your FD has something semiliar, the bow technic, and the whole ship will have the red/black color scheme, and i will try to make my first ship, with 2 cannon decks, oh and while im at it, i can reveal, that, this ship is instended to have some kind of cannon turrets at the main deck, with 3 cannons in each turret, and i will hopely make them turn, by an remote-controlloed unit =)

Making costum tall ships is one of the most difficult disciplines in MOCing, mainly because those hulls are meant to be rounded and curving in three dimension while LEGO parts are square and mostly orthogonal-based.
I know what you're talking about, I often have to rebuild a big part because I was thinking too 2-dimensional while I should think 3-dimensional :P It looked good from one angle but it was a fail viewed from another angle...

In reply to the piano thing: Yes and no, I play any keyboard instrument. I tend to play things like xylophones and marimbas more than actual piano. I do this because percussion is my main instrument. I have a electric piano, a drum set, and various other concert percussion instruments. As I said on my homepage, I also do play in a marching band. Anyways, back to the piano part, I got a bit distracted there :P I play mostly one handed songs on piano, I'm not that good at playing the bass part with the normal part. Basically, I am better on keyboard percussion than actual piano.

I play the piano and whenever I can get my hands on one I play the violin, just a beginner on that one though. I play music from POTC often on the piano :P

And B-) if you havent seen the sequel , then you dont get well anything of the 3'th one,
and back to our normal topic.
Pirates, my crusader is halfway, and i seriously mean halfways, i have half a ship, the bow and half of the main hull, and its looking good, but there wont be any interior,
cause it will be used as a exibition model, and i dont have the money or parts to make with an interior, and i now i did repeat myself twice, in this post, but thats just how it is =)

I still understood what was happening in the 3rd, I have seen parts of the 2nd, just not the entire thing. I can't really judge it very accurately to the others because of that, but I liked it better than the 1st. I have mixed feelings about the ending though, I sort of thought they should have not had the whole cafe scene, because then it would have been a epic ending, but at the same time I would have been sort of sad.

Back to the pirate stuff though, I can't wait to see your ship Morthen! It sounds really cool!

I also found the 2nd much better than the first and I think it's very difficult to do even better than the 2nd.

In the Tumbler ofcourse, there's a funny scene in the 2nd movie where this guy watches the chrashed tumbler as the motorcycle jumps out and the rest of the tumbler initiates self-destruct :P

About the Paul Cantu Issue, I'm afraid he might have entered his dark ages, its sad, I've been around here at mocpages for 4 years now and Paul cantu isn't the only one I don't hear anything about anymore.
Dark ages are undaunted (hope that's the right word)It's sad really...

That reminds me of a scene in the third were Batman and Catwoman are on a roof and batman jumps into his flying tumbler thing (which is landed in an alley) and as Catwoman is getting into it she says "My mother always warned me about getting into cars with strange men," and as the tumbler thing is taking of Batman says, "This isn't a car." :P

About dark ages, I've never really had a full dark age, more of a glimpse of one. It is really depressing, because you don't want to be out of Lego, but you just don't really want to build and you don't have inspiration (There is more on that in origin stories). It is always sad when I hear or read about other people that quit lego, even if I didn't know them. Hopefully none of us ever have to go through real dark ages.

Sebeus. i clearly remember, when you lost a MOColympics round, (cant remember the builder, but i remember the creation) it was a giant white alien head, that was used as a freeway,
and you did build an amazing fortress,
but when you lost that round, you said :im going into my dark age now:
then i said: why dont you use your dark periode to make the black pearl, (use your dark periode to build a dark ship)
a couple of months after that, you build your first black pearl,
Remember that?

yes, I remember that :P
It was the 2010 Mocolympics, and my last opponent was Dave Kaleta, I was exhausted, really wanted to win badly :P
I can't remember though wether I decided to build a Black Pearl before or after the Jolly rodger contest was announced.

I don't think I'll be changing my actual sig-fig, I'll just use a different picture a different background and better lighting. I have though about changing my fig completely before, making him look like me in real life, but none of the lego hairstyles or faces really look like me :P

Oh but I have to make the party before I completely finish the Dutchman, after the party I'm going to finish the port side, now I'm just preparing the lower deck for that.
But it would be a good Idea indeed to post the party after I finish the Dutchman, I'll do that.

My first sigfig was supposed to look like me but then I figured it looked like many other sigfiggies as well and it was simply a boring fig.
So I decided I should have a unique figure, it's kind of hard to replicate considering some of the parts I used though. On the other hand, it's unmistakably my sigfiggy

Interesting idea. I think I'll play around with some more unique sig-fig designs, the only problem will be finding one that I'll be content with for a long period of time. I am content with the one I have, but at the same time I feel it could be more unique. For example, if someone put me in a creation, people might mistake me for just any old pirate, they might not think "Hey, that's Ben's Siggy!"

What do you guys think? Is my siggy unique enough? Should I change him slightly? Or make an entirely new one?

keep your weapon, hat, and face,
chance everything else than that,
for i wouldnt be able to see if that fig where your siggy or not, but as Sebeus said,

Perhaps adding a flashy attribute would do the job, like a bright red cape (just an example, I don't know if that would look good on your sig)
Now that I think about it, a brown cape might look great, it goes well with the belt on the torso and the brown tricorner. And ofcourse you could add a plume to your tricorner as well

That depends on your preference, a very unique siggy will be noticed and more easely linked to your profile but it might be hard for other MOCers to replicate and use it in creations when it consists out of rare parts.
Using very common minifigure parts makes it a lot easer for other people to use it, but you risk having look-alikes.

As for your current siggy, the torso is commun but I haven't seen the green hair often so that's good

nah, lets just keep our ideas here for now, make a plan, then make a serious plan, and when we have some ideas that we think are good, we can share them at EB,
but before we begin write jokes, then we should establish the competition, and meanwhile the building for the contest is at progress, then we can write jokes and find out how we are gonna pull it of,

but first things first,
we will first have to agree about some things,
like rules, and the fact if we want to host a contest in the first place, becasue i know theres alot of work into it, and ive never done something like that before,

I like the knight, but, its not really pirate-y, and I don't really like the pirate but there's no better ones. Which do you think I should do?

Put the knights helmet and head upon the
the pirates torso, and replace the flesh hands with anything than flesh

Well, gentlemen, as it has been a long time since I posted a WIP update, I'd say its about time for another. Just be warned not much has really happened since my last post. This post will be more of a "So heres were I'm having trouble, any suggestions?" type of thing. I think I figured out a way to make the tumblehome better, but the hull near the keel could use some work. Sebeus, do you think you could post a LDD file with part of your BL like ship on it? I'd like to see how you did the tumblehome/cross section of your ship if that's possible.

I haven't worked further on that yet :S
I do have this prototype cross section for a larger design
http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=5477592
This might help you (although it has a different slope brick configuration)
and I have the LDD file of the brig (which you already saw I think)

(right click, save as...)
Oh and I made quite some "here's where I'm having trouble" posts when I was building the Flying Dutchman, that's perfectly fine,
at CC they love to discuss such matters (although I must say it a bit quiet in Pirate world (generally))

I had the same thing some years ago,
I had a Skull's Eye Schooner and I didn't want to destroy it because I wasn't certain I would be able to make a better ship out of it.
So I started with some small modifications, I kept modifying the ship (even completely changed the colorscheme) and eventually it turned into a different ship.

So I suggest you don't destroy it but modify it instead, that way if you don't like the new look it's easy to return the ship to its former state

Joke aside. Sebeus's suggestion is rather good, or atleast destroy it and keep track on where the parts is, i used to have two of the Brick beards bounty, i kept all their pieces in a single box (incase i wanted to build them again)
and that did help alot.
i have several Lego ships from Lego that i do not want to destroy or modify in any way.

i know they didnt, But hey its me we are talking about XD but i couldnt do it any diffrent then that, im might gonna chance some of the shape though, because its doable when each section goes a half a stud out and one stud down, so im gonna make it go in a straight line, but each section will still go half a stud away from the hull,

That's true, the more you get to a realistic shape, the less possibilities for interior.
It's a choice you have to make, if you look at Captain Greenhair's frigate you'll see that the interior is very limited. But the ship itself looks very good.

Be carefull, the stern is the weakest point of most ships, best way to counter an attack from behind is to make a turn to show your broadside.
If it's an uneven fight just run as Davy-Jones-Locker, stern chasers could be usefull then although they won't do much against a full broadside of an enemy ship.

Conclusion: avoid raking fire at all costs ;)

Yea i spoke to THE big guy hehe,
Without i knew it hehe, else i would have demanded a Flying dutchman set, as collectors edition =) but he was very impressed by my ships, so thats good.
I dont like the way the gunports is plased above eachother, and i know how to fix it, i just didnt have time or bricks to fullfill my dream completely, (thats why it dosent have any sails, i had my cloth with me, to make the sails, but i simply didnt have time, i was panic building that whole weekend, whenever i had the change, hehe, and yes every section is 6 studs wide, and there will be a second version of my Crusader, with either interior, or power funtion components.

But everyone of thoose 2600+ ordience, who came to visit the exibition, where really impressed by my ships, so was the 350 people who did display their lego.

Each and everytime i told the other displayer's, that it was me, who had the three pirate ships,
people went: Oh is it that with the moveing cannons???? because thats so cool,

At day one, 80% of everyone, didnt notice the crusaders cabin because of thoose cannons, the golden whale has, so it was bad and good at the same time,

But then at day 2, there i did move them around, then i did add the water details, and another sea serpent,

and thats the end result in the video link,

he once bould an enormus fort, with many cannons upon it, (he only had some pictures of it though)

but atleast three guys from diffrent contries, could reconize the Whale, from eurobricks.

Hey Sebeus, you said my Skærbæk display :

That would have been nice allthough I don't think I'd actually place it on the Flying Dutchman itself (considering it doesn't have a name tag in the movie either) but it would be usefull for displays as a nametag next to the ship :P I'll check if there will be a tile engraver on the next Belug event, it's a great Idea.

But i dont think that you actualy read what i wrote,

I said FrYing Dutchman.
Hehe. I got the idea from a Simpsons DVD cover, where The Frying Dutchman is a resturant.

I haven't payed much attention to my group lately I must say.

My MOCing behaviour changed as well, I build more but I post less, I spend less time online than I used to.

A contest would be a good Idea, a while ago I was discussing it with the moderators.
The thing is, how do we make the contest interesting enough so a lot of people would enter? We don't have anything (a prize) to offer.

I did have a plan to raise public interest in pirate ships, my series in which actual sigfiggies take part (and depending on their activity in this group they would be more/less important in the story).
But alas, I didn't make any progress on that.

Ah, yes! Your sig-fig series so interesting and captivating. I would love for you to bring it back, if you have the time.

I still think it's a bit drastic, maybe I can use both heads, the angry one for a fight and the old one for friendly affairs. After all both are pumkin faces, they just have a different expression.

All right, maybe...
The Basilisk (which is a mythological creature, aka the King of snakes)
Or you could look up some names of Inca Goddess (some of them take the form of a snake)
Or the Mayan god "Quetzalcoatl" (perhaps not the most practical name for a ship :P).

Well, the Basilisk myth is older than harry potter (I think it appeared in ancient greek mythology).
But I know what you mean, most people only know the basilisk from Harry Potter :P
