Unfortunately, the pirates don't listen to the saying, "Red sky at night, sailor's delight; red sky at morning, sailors take warning." So, now, I present you with this MOC:

Not much to say, the title pretty much describes it:

For those of you wondering what he's holding in his hand, it's a powder horn. I tried it with a white stud, but I think it looked better like this:

I like that powder horn.  Good job.  A stranded redcoat would have built an advanced civilization by now.  Silly pirates.

Hmmm, you have a very good point there. Perhaps my next MOC will be of a redcoat not only surviving, but thriving! :pir-tongue:

They did in the past, check out Atlantis. :pir_laugh2:

Nice scene, I feel sad for the pirate sitting on that island. Not even a tree or something around.
I like the hut and the powder horn is very ingenious. :thumbup:

So is this his punishment? being left alone on an unhabited island? Poor guy, but at least he still has a nice powder horn (he can always commit suicide if he's too sad :pir-classic:

He has some additional powder, but I doubt if he has a second bullet before his suicide attempt fails. :pir-tongue:
But I do notice some cannonballs! How did they came there? :pir_laugh2:
I still think some foliage would add a lot. :thumbup:

I was wondering the same thing. I don't think they floated there. I think some foliage would help to, unless its just a sandbar. Then he has no chance of survival.

Of course he has, he can fish and cook them on his fire, untill his wood supply runs out. Then he has to eat raw fish.
I also spot a glass there, with some chemical performances he can distill water out of seawater.

It aren't the most comfortable circumstances, but he can survive! At least till we find him and hang him like we do with every pirate. :pir-skull:

Who is him going to loot or thrive? it's just him on a remote island. :pir-tongue:

I woke up this morning to find him like this! :pir_bawling:

Posted Image

He obviously walked down the sandbar, and tied himself to the nearest tree.

Then he took a swig of rum, and started a fire, then, well you know what.
Thanks for mentioning suicide as an option for him guys! :pir-angry:  :pir-hmpf:

Not the most pleasant death, well at least it's a pirate so I think he deserves it. Who knows how many innoncent people he killed in his life?
I like the vignette, simple but effective design but the palm leaves could use some more work. Only 3 leaves on such a big trunk?

Keep it up! :pir-sweet:

if this is the same pirate as the last moc, I think he'd better shoot himself, that's less painful than burning :pir_laugh2:  But I don't care, actually I rather like seeing a pirate with lots of pain :pir-skull:

Jeez. What a way to go... Oh, well. He should be proud of what he accomplished in his life. That hut on his little sandbar was quite nice. Maybe that's where he got the wood for his funeral pyre? :pir-wink: :pir-skull:

What a way to go.  I think I would have blown myself up with that powder horn.  Maybe mix rocks and shells in with it and then laid on it and set it off like a grenaide before I burned myself....and what did that poor tree ever do to anyone?  Pirates...destructive to the very end.

It is actually Sand Blue, but yes, it does make it seem a bit more sad.

Ha...I love that.  Dueling bands bands of marooned Redcoats and Bluecoats on opposite ends of the sandbar still building small scale military gear and waging a miniwar....Great idea!  The Hatfields and McCoys meets Gilligan's Island.
