EDITE & FINAL !!!

Personal:
Some will perhaps notice it, that no tiles have been used to finish‚€¶ now these were ordered at a Bricklink store but forgotten to send with the rest,... however I had another colour but that was crapy. Sorry mates !!!

Story:
Captain Flint Black and his best friend Jamaica Jimm are at "Quartier Brique" at the Mediterranian coasts... for shoppin'. Like a normal day in a pirates life not goes easy... put if they stick to the plan everything gone work out at the end of the day. The plan is simple‚€¶ pillage the village. So as their Captain and some rascals plunders the city and ships the booty to more safe harbours, the others do their thing. Of course a price must be paided along both camps. But that is it always worth.

I do like it :pir-classic: but I will leave the constructive criticism to Zorro  :pir-wink:

Looking very good  :thumbup:

That's looking great Capt. Kirk! :pir_laugh2:

The buildings look beautiful, I especially like the one on the left that's on fire, your smoke looks lovely. :pir-wub:

Those brown-tiled awnings are perfect in their place.

I can't wait to see the finished product and story! :kahuka:

My opinion:
This is, even now already as a WIP, one of my top-favourites! You truly have a good chanche to win a prize with this one, Captain Kirk, and I wish you the best of luck!
REALLY looking forward to see this one finished btw!

Possible improvements at this stage:
At this stage, none :pir-grin: ! Except for not forgetting to add a very nice background to your entry (a white one or a digital one if you can).

Wow....
Certainly one of the best entries up to this point. :pir-classic:  So much action, stunning buildings, really just too much stuff to list.

The cobblestoned path is fantastic and the large thing in the middle of it (monument?) is perfect. Your buildings are just superb with the smoke and flames as well.

Frankly, I could go on and on about all of the beautiful things in your entry, but then I'd just be repeating my adjectives over and over. :pir-tongue:

The only things that could be remotely improved would be to add some more bloody bodies and some white plates in the water to look like waves, but even without any of that, you entry is an A+

Outstanding work and good luck! (Not that you need it... :pir_laugh2: )

--> It's a monument of a bell with a double function (it's also a hydraulic pump). The old people of "Le Quartier Brique" thanked - a long time ago - their life to this bell (but not this time...  :pir-laugh: ). I have chosen for momument and not for a statue because I want to use something else because many memeber had already a statue.

--> That's all pirate minifigures I have...  :pir-laugh:
--> I could used some white plates... but that's something for a sea for me. And when I gone use white in water, I want also light blue... and this color I don't have. That will be for another time.
--> I thought you could go 2 ways with this contest... bloody or action. I have chosen action and interaction… and a little blood. I personally give the preference that the spectator fills up a part with it's own imagination. As you see there will be always a minifigure that gone hurt another minifigure ... but you never see direct how it's gone go.... this is for the spectator.

Wonderfull work Captain, the elevations in the buildings, the coach going down the stairs and all the little things going on make this one amazing work! :thumbup:
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

Opinion
Capt. Kirk, this is a fantastic pirate MOC. The buildings are great with loads of detail. I like the chariot falling down the steps. I mean the patterns by the bell on the ground are amazing. I like that you have the Imperial Guards fighting the pirates all over your MOC, including on the roofs of the buildings. The dock with the pirates unloading the treasure onto their boat is great. I can keep going on and on about how good your MOC is, but I will stop here.

Possible Improvements

1) The only thing I have is that you put a shark in the water.

Overall- Well, your MOC is great. I mean there is so much detail and you have created your MOC very well. I wish you the best of luck!

I will try to do...
I have two new ideas for pirate-mocs and started already on one of them...
But first I gone wait for the new pirates sets to arrive...
And then I gone order some bricks at BL...

Anybody know some good shops where you can order many bricks (for example: 1x2 for a amount of 500 pieces)?

CU,
kurt

That's very nice! This is certainly my favorite Large entry. There's so much going on in there; so much action. I really like it! The jumping pirate is very clever, fighting the trooper, it's my favorite part.

I couldn't help but notice, your chariot. Is it based on my chariot design?  :pir-blush:
