Mosae Fighting Galley
Mosae Fighting Galley ready for war against the Lions' Empire and their allies.
About this creation
I built this ship for my Mosae faction, a samurai/ninja theme type army. The Mosae Fighting Galley is a ship which combines Far-East and Mediterranean design. The closest historical match to this fantasy ship is that of the Roman Galley or Phoenician Dromon; a two deck, two masted ship, with a reinforced and rebuffing hull, whose purpose is to ram or raid enemy ships. Serfs man the oars, a crew mans the upper deck, and the warriors fire catapult, arrows, and raid the enemy when they draw near. In my Lego Castle timeline and history, the Mosae are currently at war with the Lions.

Awesome ship. I might just have to make one of my own...if I can find my ship pieces. Awesome though. I like the sails and the ram the best.

From stem to stern, this model is fantastic. The hull is just epic and the sails have me speechless. Too cool.

Great sails! The only suggestion for improvement I have is to look for a way to better curve the deck railing towards the front.

I love how you integrated the pirate ship peices into the shi[. The hull looks great. Keep that good detail work up too!
