Hello all! I'd like to show you guys where I've been working on. Enjoy it!

First an introduction:
Joachim is a poor lad living in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. He heard stories about guys going to the far east (China, Java) and become very rich that way. Joachim could use some money so he decided to leave his family and he boarded the ship.

THE FIRST DAY

Posted Image
Joachim's day started good, he prepared himself for a long voyage and he packed his goodies.
But he missed the boat.  :pir-hmpf_bad:
While he is swimming to the ship, he meets General Armendariz in his barrel, wondering why he didn't drown already because of the technic axle hole in the bottom...

THE SECOND DAY

Posted Image
The deck needs to be cleaned! Joachim gives his best shot, but he bounces against the barrel of tar behind him, making a mess of the just cleaned, shiny deck...

THE THIRD DAY

Posted Image
The captain realized he made a terrible mistake, he has forgotten to take any food on board! The result is the crew gets hungry! Joachim stands in the row to get his tiny bit of food. He can't avoid taking the whole couldron away and eat it all.
No wonder the other fellows on board are angry, Erdbeereis, who has done his very best on this meal grabs a stick...

THE FOURTH DAY

Posted Image
Joachim has been keelhauled today for everything what he has done so far. The sharks where hungry today and Joachim was an easy prey during his keelhauling. Joachim lost a leg today. Erdbeereis grabs his chance and takes his knife to cut the shark in pieces and prepare a meal from it.

THE FIFTH DAY

Posted Image
Pay day! Everyone on board gets his gold for his efforts, even Joachim gets some. But there are rats on the ship, living on the edge of starvation. One of them has spotted Joachim's coins, recognizing it as a piece of cheese. Joachim lost his coins that way...

THE SIXTH DAY

Posted Image
The day when pirates attacked Joachim's vessel. Nobody survives except Joachim, the lucky bastard meets the most bloodthirsty pirate: SlyOwl. Joachim raises the white flag and surrenders, but does SlyOwl worry about that?

THE SEVENTH DAY

Posted Image
SlyOwl decided to get rid of Joachim, he invited Zorro to join the party. Joachim was bound in chains, unable to swim. Slowly he walks the plank, Zorro points his sword against Joachim's back till the poor fellow fell in the sea.
Nobody has ever heard of Joachim again...

Remember Joachim had a wife and kids at home.



EDIT: some grammar mistakes... :pir-hmpf_bad:

That's a very nice story and I even get to play a role in it!
As do Erdbeereis,  General Armendariz and Slyowl.
Poor Joachim.

Hehe, glad you like it. I've found your sigfig again when I was building that piece and I thought it would be a funny idea to put some EB member sigfigs in it.
Another 7 days story is in progress...

I don't have SlyOwls's sigfig head! But I didn't even noticed his sigfig has different hands.  :pir_laugh2:
But it's a spooky sigfig he has...I don't want to meet Sly on the seven seas!
I'm happy to see you like my vignettes CGH!  :pir-blush:

I was in the need of a cook and so I came to the idea to include some EB members in the vignettes. Glad you like it!

I love seeing other members involved in a MOC, I don't know why but it seems to have this charm.

Well done Cap'n.
