Pirates in winter?

Recommended Posts

Hello there boys and girls or whatever,

 

Pirates are known for plundering around West Indies and other places alike, however there were also pirates in areas that have snow. It's actually quite a lot like cowboys - mainly they operate in warm areas, but there are some that operate more north, except the only difference is, that there are MOCs of cowboys in winter and yet none (that I could find) featuring pirates in winter. This surely isn't the most popular topic from pirates to talk about, but I believe it deserves some attention too. Perhaps any of you know some good pirate winter MOCs?

I realize this one is Imperials and not pirates per se, but here is a MOC I did last fall: "First Snow in Elizabethville"

Beautiful MOC, I noticed your work has some winter scenes, but like you said, it's imperials, still it's good.

I haven't seen any pirate MOCs in snow climates, but lots of viking ones!

Anyway, I think it would be an area ripe for some new MOCs if you wanted to give it a try!

This is probably not what you have in mind... but it is definitely an area which has snow...

Haha :pir-grin:, that's a worthy addition nonetheless.

Yes, this is more like what I meant, that wouldn't be the first time we've seen snow in Caribbean...

I believe it was 2017 or 18' when there was snow in Miami, technically it's Caribbean.

There's an interesting article on that.

Truly interesting, but like it says there - it's not Caribbean, but it feels like it. Water that's on the coasts of Miami is Caribbean water.

Yes, indeed!

But I must ask; what's the fascination with snow in the Caribbean? Or snow in LEGO Pirate MOCs?

I think it's more of a fascination with pirates in snowy regions, it shows something different, something less exotic. Nothern regions with snow have always been to me as a treat, whenever included in a movie or game or a MOC. I really like MOCs with snow, like some of those castles ones with a castle on a snowy mountain or those wild west MOCs with cowboys surviving in snowy forests. The half frozen river between snowy slopes is what I could imagine a pirate ship calmly sailing through. Closest thing we've had for it was in At World's End, where the crew went all the way north to get to the world's end.

Wow ! That's a hard question !

Since you have to consider what you're calling Pirate and which guys you can put in wintery conditions !

Halas for our good old brave nefarious Pirates there is no place for snow in the Caribean Sea... Sorry.

BUT !

You can find good ideas or representations of what could be Pirates in winter in our Brethren of the Brick Seas community !

For example right here this year we had a full Advent Calendar with snowy or Christmas-ish builds to enjoy !

Good point, @Faladrin! Lots of good snow pirate builds in there

Thank you and I am not even mentioning all the good builds we can have in the Brethren Forum !

We already saw great snowy builds over there. I'll try to find more.

I've got this one for example :

A vessel lost in the Ice of the Northern Ocean : Le Terreur :

Yes, but that wasn't in London, was it?
