You have a very Viking sounding name! You've come to the right place to share your Pirate MOC. By conincidence I was already looking at your Brickshelf folder as it appearance among the most recent when I logged into Brickshelf. Obviously it was the Pirate mini-figure that caught my attention immediately.
Anyway, which of these MOCs would you like to discuss? You may have a thread for each MOC if you like. It seems to be easier if we have one MOC per thread because if there are multiple MOCs in the thread, then one usually gets a better response than the othes - we want to glorify ALL your pirate creations!
So how bout we start with this one...

my problem is that everything i try to include in the Reef moc look to weird to me.i dont get the buildings i want, something wrong with the shape of it.
If anyone have a idea of how i can build small huts for my pirates im grateful if you cn share that idea with me. As i see it,the pirates cant go to a lokal shop and buy things so their huts and houses are buildt of whatever they find on the beches and of old shipwrecks and so on.
Tordenskjold was one of our biggest sea heroes. and of course it sound viking like . I am a Viking. living in northern part of Norway :biggrin:

As for your MOC... First I must ask is it still in extence or have you since disassembled it, and are there anymore pictures or is this the only one?
Also do you mind if I rename the title of this thread to "My Pirate MOC" since we're only discussing the Pirate MOC. Then in about a week or two you can create a second thread for your soldier MOC and we can have a good discussion about that... If that's what you want of course!

You could always put the palm tree on a yellow tile or brick and that way it would look like a small island or sand bar existing in the waters. This way you could have lots more palm trees there if you really wanted it to be and then you wouldn't have them dying because of the salt water being too much.

Im sorry but i have very few pictures of the island. and im away at work now. wont be at home for about three weeks. at my pc i have only one more picture of the island.
I've made a model of what i was thinkingof whit the small huts buildt from whatever found on the beach.
i think it will look good with these kind of buildings sortet out on different small islands surrounding the large one.
The red 2x2 would be a bonfire and the white thing a palmtree, The hut made in a rough way. not all bricks are perfect size or shape, to resemble that they use what they find.
The Viking series look ok to me. but it look more like the Hollywood style Viking than the viking i've been tought of. The Norsemen was fiersome warriors and exellent sailors, and the got the viking axe with, thats good. but all the monsters.. Fenrisulven(Fenriswolf ) didnt live in the Viking world kalled Midgard. it lived in Åsgard the gods "world" and so on. what i miss most is the Gods i think. and their battles against their enemy :Jotner. Jotner could look something like the cavetroll in LOTR but more manlike .
And the catapults , ,, i dont like them. Norsemen used Bow and arrow but very seldom any form of catapult.

As for your pirate island: You could always add to what you've already got like adding trees and other plants to create a jungle or something like that. It depends what you want to do with it, if you consider the MOC to be finished then there's no point me suggesting what else you could do to it. Unless you wanted to know out of interest!

and other pictures too from the moc. have a sort of plan for it now. want to build some more small islands like the smaller oned on this picture and alast, make a reef surround it with only narrow openings that ships can sail in to the lagoon by. and in one end of the lagoon this Moc is placed.. just have to get what extra LEGO i need first.
I didnt load up a new picture Phes. only a smaller version of the same picture.

One thing though. Are you able to take another picture of that white building with the black roof in the top left hand corner? It looks interesting but the palm tree is obstructing the view.

Nothing one of those ladders wouldn't fix - that's if Mr Tordenskjold has one to spare of course!

Also added the boatbuilder.

Are these your first pirate MOCs? Or have you been Pirate MOCing for years now?
