I was asked whether the 6243 Brickbeard's Bounty sails are compatible in the review thread for the 10210 Imperial Flagship, and the short answer is yes! Here's a quicky MOD to show you how easily the Flagship can be converted to nefarious Piratey purposes. This was done in a bit of a hurry, so excuse the dodgy photos! Click on the pics below for 1024 wide versions.
Random Pirates ahoy! Yes, I know, I should have fixed the 1x2 blue plates. But I was in a hurry! Digging out all my old figs made me realise that the red bandana on the short chef in 10210 is the first time it's appeared since the original Pirates line.
The family Brickbeard and their new prisoner.
The 10210 just keeps on givin'!

I much prefer the blue in the color scheme, but perhaps it would be sweet to redo the whole ship in the Brickbeard's Bounty color scheme.
And you managed to use the 'extra' red dress on the wench...

Not much gets past you, does it?
Ideally of course, one would want a 10210 in Imperial colours *and* a Piratised version
I even think the shape of the sails sit much more nicely on the 10210 masts than they do on the flex tubing. The other nice thing about the more solid masts is that if you move one cross-beam, the whole lot moves, so you lessen the messy effect you can get from random play with Brickbeard's Bounty.

We still need a comparison shot of the 10210 and the Black Seas Barracuda though, get to it

I am more than happy to do one, when somebody sends me a BSB - preferably MISB
Christmas is coming up, you know...

It looks like such a different ship with just the colours and sails changed, they make quite a difference. Looks like I'll definitely need two now...
Are you going to buy some extra cannons to fill out the spare ports? I always get annoyed having spare ports, and try and buy some extra cannons to fill them up on my ships. Always best when you have maximum fire power.

I agree, but this was the 'quicky' version
I can't say that I like the mermaid as a figurehead, to be honest. Suggestions are welcome!

Incidentally, the red bandanna was in the chess set. But I guess that doesn't count...

Reminds me of my own modified Black Seas Barracuda which was turned into a Spanish vessel, but this one looks way better...
It's funny how just switching a few colours here and there changes the official set.
