This is my entry for the Staff Contest: Abandoning the ship.

After a fierce battle on board the Pirate ship Queen of the Bounties, the Royal Army soldiers succeeded in putting the powder magazine on fire. Now, while both parties are abandoning the doomed ship, the Captains are fighting a 'duel of fates' on the deck.

Brilliant. But dammit, now, after all these fantastic entries, I'm scared to post mine! Well I suppose I need to finish it first anyway. :pir-tongue:

Well done LuxorV, good to see you in the pirate theme! :thumbup:

It looks like my CCC entry. :pir_laugh2:
Great work LuxorV! The flames out of the hull are nice and there is a lot of action going on.
The water is nice as well. :thumbup:

Sail to My Brickshelf or to My MOCpages, or my Flickr Photostream!

Very nice MOC.  I hope the Red Coat Captain wins his duel and escapes without being vaporized in the explosion!

Violent and Boom-y! I like it! perhaps you could have added a more complete deck, and perhaps a shreadded sail. I love the action in this scene. Good work!

Thanks all for the comments.

As somebody noticed, a more complete deck, a shredded sail and/or a post-duel scene would make this entry more complete. But, I did it quite in a hurry, in the small bits of time I could find here and there (adding the details while I built, since the only idea I started with was that of trying to build a part of a ship's hull; something I had never tried before :pir-blush: ), and I didn't have time and continuity to make it more complete. Moreover, this uses almost all the brown plates I own, and I should have put in other colors to complete the deck...
