Puerto Soltero, 1648.

The imperials rule the city, and impose their law.

As a sign of opposition, a pirate crew decided to ambush an imperial patrol...  :jollyroger:

That's a really nice MOC, but why are the pirates so short?  :pir-laugh:

Love the pirate crew
Love the pirate with a club(is original because we usually see blades or fire weapons)
Love the Admiral woodhouse torso with the new gobernor's face, sending 2009 red coats to attack
Love knifes in chests

YOU DID A GREAT MOC, MATE!

Not sure about the steering wheel though.

There are too many great things about this MOC! for example the crane, the minifig's, the house (ofcourse :pir-classic: ) and the water. But what do those small guys do there? Are they midgets? I like all the details, though the background doesn't really fit, but that's no problem for the MOC ofcourse. And the pirates look very mean :pir-skull:

I agree and agree and agree!
This is a nice one Louloute! I really like the docks, house and jetty (with crane). And the idea of an ambush is pretty cool.
I only don't know what the city garrison will do about this, it isn't really safe to ambush someone in a city... :pir_laugh2:

Oh and I really like the stairs made of jumper plates!!  :thumbup:

Really nice MOC.  Great job on all the details but the crew really takes the prize.  I love the pistol tucked into the belt and the knife across the chest.  I also wondered why you have some stumpy little pirates?  Great job!
