[MOC] Pirate Island vs Imperial fort

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi to all , i want to share here my first pirate creation to this theme.

I am doing a lot of historic mocs but i want to try something with my lovely pirates theme.

I use some old imperial soldiers and i make a fort for them.

Then i make an island for my lovely pirates minifigs and at the end i remake the imperial ship of the 90s that i love..so this is the result of my moc

These are very nice creations!

Do you have higher resolution photos?  On my 1920x1080 display things are looking a little small!

Your MOCs show a lot of promise - if you could get some higher resolution images, they would be good candidates to be featured on the Eurobricks frontpage.

Good build !

As having see your medieval constructions, I immediately recognized your style ! (yes now it seems you've found your style :pir_laugh2:)

It has a great classic feeling and the skull island is well rendered ! I like the rockwork with the slopes just throwed on the water without being assembled !

Too bad that your photography skills could have improved... Be very careful with the lighting. On many of your pictures we have shadows and more light from different spots could help to reduce this effect. And just a minimal photo editing could help to raise the light and better the contrast for example...

So, a great build from you of course, perhaps your best at all for the moment ! Keep up the good job ! :pir-laugh:

Thank you very much Faladrin for your good feedback with all this great advice. Yes the really is that i have to make something with the photos because  i take the photos only with my Mobile. I really like that you notice my style to my creations. I hope you enjoy the build. Have a good day.

Oh, a pair of fine creations! :excited:

The pirate island hideout is suitably ramshackle, but the orderliness and overall arrangement of the soldiers' outpost really strikes me. Why can't we get some new sets that mimic this, instead of all the empty panels that made so much of the "walls" of the last official "fort"? Good work and keep it up. :thumbup:

You're welcome.

Taking picture with your mobile phone is not really a problem though. Of course a better device would help, but here, I think a better lighting could do the job. Like @Mister Phes said your MOC is a good candidate for the Eurobrick frontpage ! We really apreciate if you can have better lighted and better resolution pictures to provide... :pir-grin::wink: if you see what I mean...

Good work, @pantelis!  Thank you for posting the nicer photos, they have certainly improved the presentation of your MOC.

And thank you to @Roadmonkeytj for posting this MOC on the Eurobrick frontpage - this was his first ever frontpage post and he's done a fine job!

Also, an honourable mention to our other new recruit, @Faladrin for his input and assistance with the frontpage post.

Overall, it's been a superb team effort between builder and new team! :thumbup:

Are the red and blue imperials meant to be the same fraction? I always thought the reds were the British redcoats, and the blue imperial French. So them working together to stop pirates would have been unlikely. Heck they even paid pirates against each other

Wow, wow, wow! You know that I'm a Castle guy, but heck, when I see a lovely Pirates (and yes, Imperials, too...) build, I recognize it!
Congrats on being featured on main page!
Very, very nice MOC!

Hi pantelis,

this is pretty cool, remembers me my childhood, when we were about 8-10 years old in the beginning of the '90s, and played with the pirate themed sets,

Your MOC is a pretty nice combination of this good old feeling and the new bricks and elements,

Congrats!
