Buff up your bricks ye scally-waggs, for today we are here to announce our very first Classic-Pirates.com Community Build!

For all of you who don't know what a community build is:

A community build is a building challenge open to all EB members. Basically, The staff/volunteers make a list of different buildings that would be in a town back in the late 1700's. Then, each person chooses a building that they would like to build.
To sum it up, You will be building a pirate era town out of LEGO.

This is the entry thread. Feel like participating? Sign up here!

The Rules

1. The build will officially begin on January 4th and ends on the 15th of March.
2. The staff/judges reserve the right to revoke any entry that does not apply to the rules.
3. If you take a spot, tell us, (so you don't get annoyed when somebody else builds the same thing first).
4. Images no larger than 800 x 600 please, and a maximum of 7 per MOC unless you post smaller images.
5. Registration is open to any member, regardless of number of posts , etc.
6. Try to keep the violence to a minimum.
7. You must enjoy making MOCs (though this is a given) and be able to give, as well as take constructive criticism.
8. No LDD entries are allowed. All entries MUST be built with real bricks.
9. Spaces 1, 3 and 4 are 32 x 32 studs, spaces 2 and 5 are 16 x 32 studs and the others are 16 x 16 studs.
10. Registration will take place in this thread.
11. Post your entries in the entry thread AND in a new thread inside the Pirate MOC forum (this one is for comments and feedback). The description of your thread should be "EB Community Build".

(*) When taking pictures, please take at least one picture from above your MOC, so that we can try to put them all together at the end. also, please take them on a white background if possible.

- This thread is only for posting your entries, not for comments and feedback! Please make a separate thread inside the Pirates MOC forum for comments and feedback -


Don't hesitate to ask questions !!!
The Golden Rule of this Community Build: Have fun

Commonly asked questions....

Q: Am I allowed to use clone brands, such as megaBlocks, blocko, ect?

A: Not at all. This is a Lego only build.

Q: Am I allowed to use custom weapons, tools, ect. from store like Bickarms and Brickforge?

A: Yes, you can if you want too.

A: You can if you wish.

Q: Do the buildings have to be closed in or can they have open walls?

A: All buildings (Like houses, Doctors Office, Taverns must be walled in.)

Q: Are we allowed to use custom string/sail?

A: Yes you can.

Q: The base-plate, should it be completely covered with the building or could you add some empty land/beach/water/foliage/rocks?

A: You don't have to cover the whole base-plate with the building, you can cover the leftover are with trees, rocks, flowers ect.

INVALID ENTRY: IT SHOULD ONLY BE 16x16!!!

My contribution to the build: The torture chamber! A room in the secret underground tunnels.

That's it. I hope you like it. And I pm'd ratshot to ask if I was allowed to make it open, due to the fact it's more like a room than a building, and he said it was okay!

My entry for the 2010 Community Build:

Government House

An overall photo of the entry. It was quite a challenge constructing a building that would usually take up 16 x 32 minimum on a 16 x 16 baseplate.

A photo of the front of the building:
Posted Image


Also, not to be outdone by Cap'n Blackmoor, I built an interior. Not highly detailed, but it included a desk of drawers with the jumperplate drawer technique (something I've never been able to do before).
Posted Image


And as stated in the rules, I have included an arial photograph:

Good luck to everyone, keep these great MOCs rolling! :)

22 Orphanage

Good day to you all!

I picked the orphanage because it is something I would normally have never thought off. Whenever I make a creation I always start with putting together the figs I want to use. I dont know why, maybe because LEGO does this too in their instructions or something, but the figs are always the start of a MOC  for me.  Without further ado I would like to welcome you to  Orphanage Siblings Ofthe Sea. Father McBrickbeard is in charge of the Orphanage. Of course he gets help from his nuns. Together they try to find a new home for the children who have been saved from the sea, pillaged villages other nasty places. At least that is what Father McBrickbeard told me.

First we start with a front view of the Orphanage
Posted Image
As you can see some of the naughty ungratefull kids try to run away from the orphanage. Luckly the Nuns know just the way to get them back inside.
Posted Image
Posted Image

We continue with a back view of the Orphanage
Posted Image
Here you can see Father McBrickbeards office where he counts his money, due to lack of space his office also functions as kitchen.
Posted Image
These two kids were locked upstairs for trying to run away, looks like they'll get some company soon.
Posted Image
All the inhabitants of Siblings Ofthe Sea, some weren't in previous pictures due to the fact that they were locked up in the basement.
Posted Image

Last but not least, the birds eye view shot.
Posted Image

Thanks for viewing my MOC, please be so kind and post some feedback.

Here it is. My community build entry! *Insert choir here*

You have to admit, it's pretty good for someone who only used what he had on hand. I ordered no extra parts.

The Golden Touch Trading Company is one of the biggest trading companies in the Carribbean. They have a shop in almost every major port in the world.

(Note: My camera is awful.)

The one we will be examining is run by Capt. Gordon, a well-known captain in these waters. He is on the far right. The other employee is Jack, a not-so-bright but very strong worker. He is in the middle. The other man is just shipping some hay, shown on the left.

Posted Image

Here is the mighty tavern itself!

Posted Image

That was literally the only way I could have made a roof. I had almost no slopes that matched the color scheme.

The interior.

Posted Image

The wall of goods. (Jack is clearly not the best organizer ...)

55. The Commons
by Pellaeon

The Commons is where townsfolk, sailors, and the occasional redcoat come for a cheap meal. The typical fare is a "mystery stew", and the vendors are strictly BYOB -- bring your own bowl.
Posted Image

Too poor to afford even the stew? Well, bring any dead animal you find to this old timer, and he'll grill it up for you -- for free, if you let him have a bite or two. Yum, dead parrot!
(it is an ex-parrot, it has ceased to be!)  :pir-laugh:
Posted Image

Here's the kitchen staff. The chef is stirring his suspicious stew of unsavory things, while his assistant carves some fresh meat -- the fate of any rat caught in the Commons.
Posted Image

If you bring your own mug, cheap booze is also available. There are also some tables and chairs around, in case you'd like to "dine in".
Posted Image

Here's another shot of the queue for the stew.
Posted Image

A few close-ups. Clockwise from the upper-left: a clumsy redcoat spills his gruel, the chef works his magic, and another (dis)satisfied customer.
Posted Image

Top-down shot, as requested. This is a 16x16 entry.
Posted Image

I hope you enjoyed it! Comments are welcome in the separate post.

Building 9: Tavern
Yarr me harties!  This is my entry for the Eurobricks Pirate Community Build, Building 9: Tavern, but I like to call it The Drunken Fish Tavern!  It was a huge fun project!  :pir-classic:

Close to the sea, The Drunken Fish Tavern sells fresh(ish) food and alcohol.  However, thanks to being far from the heart of the Imperial-Officer Infested town, it is also a secret meeting place for pirates on the run!  The tavern will often host special discounted food parties for great pirate captains and their loyal crewmates!  :pir-classic:

I hope you enjoy it!  :pir-classic:

Here is my 100% historically accurate House of Ill Repute for the community build:

On the roof, they have a stripper pole, a girl bathing, and a big sign to advertise what they do:

Hey, who's that creepy guy...?:

And here's the birds-eye view:

I would have taken pictures of the interior, but the unspeakable things going on in there would probably get my banned from this site.

So for the market I went with what I felt would be a market back in the pirate days,as there really wasnt much to go from.
