Just made a sort of alterative to the warning from POTC .  have seen some lego versions of the body's hanging and the warning sign.   so i made a small rock/island  where the gallow, and heads of the dead pirates will warn other against piracy.   does this sucks 100% or is this something i should try to make with real lego?  
i used the traitors gate from the Tower of London as a inspiration.
boats are coming to the brown pier where the guard and the officer waits.   and then is taken up to the gallow where the hangman show them his "hobby"

I think it's pretty cool. Like the idea about the heads of former pirates on sticks.
But you should do something about the gallow. It looks odd atm I think. But i'd like to see it in Lego.

hehe i also think it look odd. but im not sure how i would build the gallow. But i see it this way, who wants to make a very very fine gallow, when just a tree is good enough. :wink:   i also been thinking of adding a block where the funny hang man could try his axe on the pirates.

Sounds like a very bloody idea.. I like it :pir-tongue:
You right about the gallow, but I still think it looks wierd. even if you didn't want to make a big deal out of it, the soldiers do better than that when the pirates are to be hanged in it. :jollyroger:

Well, the gallows is terrible, but hey! At least you are admitting it. If I were you, I would have a look at the first POTC and pause when you get to a good frame of the gallows and build from there. Otherwise, It is very good. I wouldn't worry about the chopping block though. And do something about the hangman! I would like to see this built out of real Lego.

How savage of you Tordenskjold!  I was just wondering about the hangman though - isn't there better headwear you could use?  Like something from the Ninja theme?

This gallow is way better I think! Though I'd like to see it from some other angles.
About the hangman: I'm pretty sure that there's a good hood from one of the star wars figures, thats perfect for hangmans :pir-skull:

What else are you going to do to this Work in Progress, Tordenskjold?

Are you going to add a victim?

sure :) a victim or two will come. but probebly not in mlcad.  ive startet to see what i have and dont have to make this in real lego. missing most of the slopes so will have to buy that . my car broke wown so my lego investments will have to wait. first i have to pay the bill to fix my car, about 15000kr or 2500-3000usd :pir-sceptic:  not wgat i had planned for this fall...

hehe he will never swim in this life. in the first picture you can see the rope with a unpopular knot  on directly infront of the pirate. , he has only two ways to get out of there, short drop and a sudden stop , or the axe, he could get a better and faster end if the Dark Man use his axe :)

Thanks mr Broadside  :pir-blush:  glad you thought that .  there is a big difference between building on a screen and doing it for real i found out .

On this pic you can see the galow rope clearly mr Zorro
Posted Image This is the Dark Man. nobody know who he is or were he come from.  
but ever since they started to execute people at Decastio. HE will be there.   He take no payment just wearing his mask and doing the job. either with the rope or with the axe.    
Not even his boat is known. its like he live on this rock.
