Hi all,... this is my first Pirates-impulse-MOC.
So C&C is welcome... ;)

The story:
Under the pirates it's a sport to steal the tricorner of the Imperial Commanders. If a pirate get one, it's like a trofee. The pirate can brag with it until someone else comes home with a new one. Until that day... he's the king and can drink for free... all day long.

That looks like it has too many peices for an impulse set, but still really cool!

Definitely too many pieces to be an Impulse set but it does appear to be a highly entertaining vignette!

Free beer for a day you say, that must be a great game :pir-laugh: . Great work Capt. Kirk, the scene is well done I like the balcony railings, and the background story. BTW I think he meant to say small class, not impulse class. Now I just need to find someone's tricorner, and I should be able to hold out for the night :pir-tongue: .

Very funny!  :pir-laugh:  Specially the way the pirate runs out upon the barrels!  :pir-tongue:

You gave me a nice idea for the diorama I'm working on...   :pir-wink:

Yes, it's quite an imaginative little tale!

I can't help but notice the images look very "blue" - it looks like the levels need adjusting.

A very good story and well done too.... the placing and expression of the MFs looks great, and the balcony┬┤s really nice.  :thumbup:

First and for all,... thx guys for the nice comments and sorry for the late reply.
Second I must say I'm a space builder but I gone add a second theme to my passion: PIRATES !!!
I was doubting between cowboys or pirates but it's certainly pirates... 8)

Back to topic
To the question: did they catch the pirate... for me to know for you to find out... 8)
Serious: I building a follow-up (two versions). Of one version I have the picture already in my mind, the second version is still a search... 8(

To the question: If I'm from Belgium... yes I'm.

A question from me (because I'm a newbie)... what's the difference between a small-medium-large impulse set. Thanks for a answer.

Sea ye,
Kurt
