The self proclaimed king of pillage, Blood Beard had few peers, that lived. His swordsmanship was exceptional and as a captain he led by example. His motley crew became so complacent they just let him unleash his mayhem, often turning up late to simply loot and burn the village. Many thought his name was due to his ginger hair, but legend has it that when he pillaged a village he would not stop the slaughter until the blood was up to his beard. Hires version on Flicker
Designer Notes: It's very hard to create a large MOC and capture the action in one 800x600 photo, but I'm very happy with the end result. There are lots of smaller details, some got lost, but all the major ones are visible. Special thanks go to my good friend and fellow lego builder Connor. It was his idea to link the background to the foreground with the 2nd canon ball shot. Thank you Classic-Pirates.com for the best competition. Pirates was not a theme I collected before and even if I don't win the BSB at least I have a microscale version.
