Microship attempts

So here's a couple of microships I've cobbled together, from left to right: imperial galleon (design borrowed from brickshelf), elven frigate, norse longship, ork battlebarge and a smaller pirate ship.

When I saw the word microship I assumed space ships, and briefly forgot about Medivo. These are the first micro-sailing-ships I've ever seen, and I really like them. There are some particularly creative uses of bricks here, such as the hands for flags.

Nice! I especially like the different-colored shields on the norse ship.

These are so cute. I mean sorry, but that is the best word for them. :D

I have to admit I love the elven frigate and norse longship the best. But they are all good. :D

I would like to see the Orc ship in a different color though.

Either way, good job.

The viking longship is cute indeed. I bet the british coastline would squee with glee if it were raided by such a fleet!

Thanks guys! (I even got my seal, ohgosh)

I'm planning on making some smaller boats for each faction (Empire-Elves-Norse-Orks-Pirates/rest), then try to mass-produce them via bricklink (this will take some time).

Why no undead you may ask? well 6.) they're already in league with orks 7.) they'd rather poison the water instead of sailing it.

I'll also need to come up with a good ruleset.
