Mega Bloks pirate ships are beautiful, but like Lego they have these annoying nubs or pegs that get in the way when you try to convert the ship to use in roleplay of wargames. Removing the nubs can be troublesome, but I found that just using plyers works the best. These plyers are from Warhammer and came from a miniature working kit. You can easily press it down around the nub, shift angles a bit to get all sides before pushing through. The leftover edges can be removed with a crafting knife.
