My first vote for this division goes to 22. LegoJoe.
My second vote I give to 42. Oky Wan Kenobi - Tower Raid.
And the third vote is for 38. svelte_corp - Brickbeard the Felonious Fishmonger.

For LegoJoe's entry, I love the humour in this creation, even though I feel sorry for the soldier. It also captures the theme of this competition well - too many of the other entries just portray pirates, while the challenge in this contest was to have pirates do something cruel. The other two entries that got my vote had more aesthetic appeal in comparison to others, they are simply impressive to look at. But nicely done to all of you who entered this division - it's not easy to get your message across with such a tiny space to build.

I vote 1st for 22. LegoJoe,
2nd for 7. Fat Tony - Pirate's End,
3rd for 17. pe668 - Colonic Cannonball

LegoJoe - I really like both the build as the humor part of it. He's made a great combination of both. The sewer looks really messy while the bathroom clean and tidy. Also the real 'idea' of the contest, Pirates pillaging a village, is put in here well.

Fat Tony - Beautiful MOC. Everything is very detailed and the figure placement is great.

Pe688 - Not the best MOC, but it's good and very funny. The soldier sticking out made me choosing this one as a 3rd place.

37. Chrispockster - Swashbucklin'
7. Fat Tony - Pirate's End
16. Olog - Why pirates are so horrible...

I think the Swashbucklin' entry is quite flawless. The action taking place makes this entry look very alive. It is not the goriest of entries, nor the cruelest idea, but the execution is just marvelous!
I loved the way Fat Tony managed to get birds in different poses, while clearly keeping the specie of the bird constant. Also the cage is very cleverly designed.
Ologs entry is very original in its idea of pirates forgetting they already looted a village in a very brutal manner. I also really like his picture quality.

22.:This entry instantly made me laugh, I like the surreal simplicity and the suspense (instead of sheer horror) of the little scene.
28.: Brilliant comic-style creation, I also like how one arm of the sleeping person is showing to indicate that he is lying on his side.
33.: I love the look on the guy's face, he is facing his immurement (what a good idea) with indifference.

Well done everybody, I should have joined....

Colonic Cannonball
This is by far the best entry of them all! It is very original, and as I pointed out in the thread, there were similar torture methods used by Asian pirates. So not so original after all eh?

Dinner Time!
It looks bad to vote for yourself I know, but I really put a lot into this. I planned it all out and rebuilt it over 20 times. And to get that table to have skeleten legs - shudder at the thought. So I think I made quite a valid entry. And thanks to everyone who votes for me.  :pir-sweet:

zorro3999 - You have been sentenced to death by immurement!
I really liked this. Because there could be nothing worse at all in the world than this punnishment. This is cruel, hence, this is great!

And good luck to everyone.  :pir-classic:

1st. The choice of heads was excellent (I bought them for this competition) as was the photography (Including the drafts I took over 160 photo's to get the shot I wanted. I'm crap at photography). Yes it's my entry but I really like it.

2nd. The chair and the main character fig are tip-top

3rd. Cruel and brutal isn't that what this competition is about?

22. LegoJoe
17. pe668 - Colonic Cannonball
1. Beuk - Pirated Television


LegoJoe had by far the best entry in the Small Division. It incorporated humor, violence, and a good use of pieces and figures from the new pirates line. LegoJoe even included pipes for his toilet, and putting a sewer under the bathroom is a stroke of divine intellect that not many others would have done. Great work!

pe668 might have gotten first place in my eyes... until I saw that he voted for himself (and no one for  1st or 2nd). It's something, voting for youself, that I don't admire- it's not against the rules, but somewhat cheap. That aside, his vig was quite a good one. The concept, shoving an imperial into a cannon while in a well made forest scene, gave me a good belly laugh- and that's hard to do.

Now, Beuk's entry was just pure humor. :pir_laugh2: I loved it. The whole idea of the pirates pillaging a TV is just hilarious, and that TV was pretty well made, too. My only gripe is that it doesn't fit the theme of PTV as well as the other two I mentioned... or the time period.

Great entries, guys! And thanks for the great compo (and prizes)!

16. Olog - Why pirates are so horrible...

svelte_corp's entry had very nice details and good use of the pirate pieces, and I love tall vignettes, so I really liked it. The ocean floor was very nice and, again, a very good use of pieces. So all in all, his entry was my favorite. LegoJoe's model was hilarious, which is one of the reasons why I chose it. The sewer was nicely down. It had rats.....and what most sewers have.... :pir_laugh2: , it made me laugh many times and the toilet was nicely done and it didn't look like a brand new toilet, but old-fashioned and I'm glad he thought of that. It was a great idea! Olog's entry was very well designed and the use of tile was very nice. He made it look like a real house and it amazed me how he thought of that idea.....people have some really creative minds....anyways, I thought it was funny and everything about the house was great! It looked so real! Great job guys, may the best MOCer win! :pir-wink:

22. LegoJoe
28. 74louloute - When I grow up, I wanna be a pirate...

What a great contest with many brilliant entries! :pir-classic:

For me, it was a relatively tough choice here, but in the end, I had to vote for Svelte_Corp in 1st place. His was the entry that when I first saw it, I immediately loved it. The different corals in the water are so creative, especially the crystal skull one. Plus, It utilized the gold and dark red pieces to perfection.
Another thing I loved about his entry was the sheer idea of it all. A pirate holding a mermaid captive just so he can sell caviar is so absurd, yet so entertaining. Lastly, I loved the wife pushing away the other customer to get her hands on the caviar in the golden bowl.

2nd place went easily to LegoJoe. An extremely creative idea that was also very well executed. I loved the toilet, as it had a great design and matched the rest of the entry very well. The sewer area also looked lovely with the trans-green moss and great torso choice for the pirate. He also did a very nice job with the little details such as the hangers on the wall for the torch backpack and gun, plus a great head choice.

3rd place went to 74louloute. By far the most creative entry in my opinion, he also built it very well. The "thought bubbles" were just a stroke of genius and I loved the effect of the minifig in the bed. A nice little action scene on top as well.

Overall, the small division for the Pillage the Village contest contained many wonderful entries.

Some of the entries that earn honorable mention from me:

Pe668 had a very nice entry as well. Great landscaping and a really humorous idea combined to make a lovely entry. It only missed making the top 3 by a small amount.

Chrispockster's Swashbucklin' was another entry that I liked a lot. A nice idea that was very well built, especially the nicely tiled deck and the rigging that the pirate is swinging on. The main thing that kept it out of the top 3 for me was that it was slightly bare in some parts.

Great work everyone and thanks Classic-Pirates for hosting such a fun contest! :monkey:

Majek, I think you had a terrific MOC. Your theme is great and you have used some great bricks in your MOC that I like. The Fire Nation flags from Avatar really fit in. The slave trader has some great accessories like the Indiana Jones whip and how the chain from his staff holds the slaves together. I think you have done a great job Majek. I wish you the best of luck!

LegoJoe, you have a very funny MOC, yet it still fits into the PTV contest. To start out, I like the new pirates you have included in your MOC. The thing about is that you included humor by having the pirate shoot his gun up the pipes. The expression you put on the guards face is priceless. You also have everything smooth and clean, except for the sewer. You have done a great job creating the toilet also. I wish you the best of luck!

Everyone has done a great job with their MOCs. You all deserve a round of applause.

28. 74louloute - When I grow up, I wanna be a pirate...

29. Patriot270 - Sleeping on the Job


Legojoe's entry immediately caught my eye. It's interesting on a few different levels. One, the most obvious as well, is the humor. The Imperial Soldier goes to the restroom to meet the grim end of a pirate's musket. I also appreciate the clash shown through the two levels. While the imperial is in a clean and modern setting, the pirate lurks through the grimy and dark sewers, fitting to what these two sides would have lived by in the day.

When I grow up is a fantastic entry showcasing a modern setting but also featuring the contest's theme of piracy. I thought it was very clever to feature the kid dreaming of a free life of piracy.

Sleeping on the job is exciting I think since while the soldier sleeps on duty, I imagine a large siege will take place as the entrance is blown to bits. I'd love to see this one on a larger scale!

first vote: 22 Legojoe
second vote:  1 Beuk - Pirated Television
third vote: 33. zorro3999 - You have been sentenced to death by immurement!

My first vote goes to 22 Legojoe because the idea is just hilarious! The MOC is pretty nice build and the sewers are just perfect, using green bricks and a brown rat to make the sewer look disguisting. :pir-skull:
My second vote is spend on 1 Beuk - Pirated Television, when he revealed his MOC I immediately knew this would be a topper. Not only the idea is very funny but it looks great too. Especially the poles in the water with the different colours.
This guy has an sharp eye for small detail :pir-sweet:
The third vote is for 33 Zorro3999 - You have been sentenced to death by immurement! Because the idea is just very cruel. The pirate won't have a very nice death.
It's build nicely but I voted for it because of the horrible idea beyond it. :pir-skull:

2. Matn - Governor's End
3. Lt. de Martinet - The Oarsman's Demise


1. I liked this creation because it showed a side of piracy not usually shown. As if that weren't enough, it's also well-built.
2. Really well-built; I also really like the creations that show no direct cruelty, but suggest that there will be some in the future.
3. Sorry to vote for myself, but see my second reason for my second choice.
