The Imperial Sloop Neptune would definitely be my choice. A clean, elegant and affordable design that is not too big. It is a shame that the flag from the Eldorado Fortress could not have been reused.

Most of those are a pass for me tbh.

Imperial Sloop 'Neptune' is great but I dislike the brick built sails. It could go well with the Eldorado set though.

The Trading Fort is my fav entry of them all overall.

The Hug island looks COOL, but wouldn't work for me in a larger Pirates set-up. It looks more like a Lego City carnival attraction.

I don't know the rules, but none of the ship has cloth sails, so i guess they are not allowed. Probably only pieces that are in production at the moment?!

There are some great mocs there. The big ships of course, the trading post, the fortress with the sloped walls.

Hug Island is a cool one :jollyroger: but i'd remove the skeleton arms :pir-grin:

Hi all,

Minerva is a new MOC, designed purposely to fix any issues / criticism that I could gather from my effort for series 3, Concordia. I posted more here:

I did not intend for Concordia to be in Series 4 also; the design was not withdrawn from Series 4 when I asked :(

Because some people commented about preferring one or the other, I made a render comparison:

I think Minerva clearly wins the comparison.
In any case, please vote for Minerva as she is much more buildable - more like a set - and has overall much better chances!

Thanks!

Everyone should vote for both MOCs anyway :pir-grin:

I have voted for all of the pirate builds and many others. It's amazing to see how many possibilities there are to build different sets for the Pirate theme. I'd love to see them all as real sets.

Well, BDP cannot have two Pirate MOCs selected as finalists! We already have a pirate island from series 2. Time for a ship! There hasn't been an imperial ship since the 2009 Imperial Flagship!

The Minerva and Concordia are both ships so voting for both helps increase the probability of one being selected.

Thanks, the Neptune is my build. I was also puzzled why the 6x4 Imperial flag was not a part of the palette despite other Imperial parts being included. The only option would have been to replicate via stickers. That didn't appeal to me, so I opted to keep my originally designed flag. That said, they could easily be swapped later.

It's correct that cloth sails aren't allowed within BDP.  I received similar feedback to my earlier submission and so I made provisions for the easy removal of the brick-built sails and attachment of your own versions (see the 3rd photo from my submission below). 

Have another look and maybe reconsider your vote :wink:

Thanks!

Any chance of producing a mock up image of what it would look like with sails?

I understand this may be easier said than done because you would have to use software other than BrickLink Design Studio.

Don't worry, I was just being picky - I already voted for your design :)

I've also voted for Trading post by KingCreations and both ships by BrickPerfection

The rest is a pass for me tbh.

I can't do a software render of this, but here's a rough picture of my test build using basic sails cut from some canvas material I had and attached with the provided 1L tow ball pieces.  (Please don't hold the sail quality against me :pir-grin:)

I think a more traditional look could also be achieved using string with end stud pieces (not part of the submitted design).

It's beautiful! :pir-stareyes:

But now I'll nitpick the background - good that you've attempted to neutralise background distractions, but the texture of that material still distracts from your brilliant work.
