Ahoy,

I had some spare time last weekend so I decided to do a small vignette. If you like it leave a comment, if there is room for improvement then please tell me. This is my third MOC/vignette. I started out with some small ones, because I think I can't do a good big one yet.

Murder on the Beach

Who killed the redcoat? Was it the stranger next to him, or a lousy pirate who already fled. The parrot may be the only witness.

I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did building it...

Cheers.

I vote it was the stranger next to him!!

edit: This gives me a thought- maybe we need a poll with some options so we can vote on who killed him!  Or maybe instead we just need to speculate wildly.  With that in mind- perhaps the killer WAS the parrot!

Or how about a series of vignettes all about "who killed the redcoat?".
Anyway, I agree, it could be the parrot. His head is covered in blood.

Nice MOC. Perhaps not very spectacular, but with a good story it's very welcome :pir-classic:

Where is the wild speculation on who killed the redcoat?

Thank you guys! Encourages me to do some more vignettes (not meant to be a threat :pir-cry_happy: )

Yes, this would be a great idea for a contest or just as a topic. I'd love to see that.

Good call!  Now we just need to calculate all the Friday the 13th in the 1600s to figure out which month and year he was killed in.  With all the Collectable minifigs, do you think we will get a machete?
