    [MOC] The Olde Gull

    Here be The Olde Gull; a fine ship despite her age. The Olde Gull by LordValgor Description: Just a small ship I made out of spare parts. Nothing special, but a respectable ship nonetheless. Still need to make sails for it though... Comments welcome! Here she is fully laden with cargo. Not a bad haul. Fully laden by LordValgor Here she is laden with cannon and cargo, just in case you wanted a bit more protection brought along. Laden with cannon by LordValgor Need to smuggle something? The Olde Gull has got ya covered there too. Hidden compartment by LordValgor

    [MOC] Imperial Fort "Guardian"

    Thanks! I guess I should mention that I tend to prefer keeping the build in line with standard lego design aspects. I tend to prefer the charm of a lego set, rather than go all out with details and small pieces of some of the other (amazing) MOC's I see here. And I'm sure I'll try and add the jail cell some day haha.

    [MOC] Imperial Fort "Guardian"

    The Imperials recently finished their newest fort, Fort Guardian! by LordValgor Description I recently (finally) finished my latest MOC; a fort for the Imperials that rivals any pirate ship that dares try and assail it. Geographically speaking I think of this fort on a peninsula overlooking a channel with a narrow access point for ships that then leads to a bay with a full harbor and city. Thus any ship attempting to reach the bay will be unable to maneuver and therefore be a sitting duck. As for the build itself, full disclosure that I pulled elements from several official sets. The lighthouse is pulled off of the Creator Lighthouse 5770, and the tower of the fort is pulled from the Soldiers Fort 6242 with some changes of course. The rest of it I basically pulled inspiration from who knows what sources and went with it. Focused on making something that I always wanted to see in an Imperial Lego fort. Anyways, let me know what you think, and enjoy! (Also, in the first picture you can see a secret hiding place for loot! Take a guess, and the answer will be revealed below :) Pictures This here be the mortar emplacement; works a treat at keeping them pirates from even thinking of entering the channel!

It isn't super amazing, but it doesn't need to be. It's fun, playable, and serves it's purpose of guarding the bay :D. Only thing I couldn't quite get to work that I wanted was a little jail cell beneath the lighthouse. Might still be doable some day, but I just don't have the pieces for it right now. Thanks for looking!

    Can I use MOCs I posted for BoBS?

    Awesome! This is what I was planning on doing :) Sweet, thanks!

    Can I use MOCs I posted for BoBS?

    Hope this is the right place to ask, but basically I have a few MOCs I'm looking to post, but I'm also considering joining BoBS and would like to know if I can double dip? Especially since I might have already created something which my BoBS character cannot currently afford to own, but later down the line I'd like for them to have the option. So would it be possible for me to post MOCs in the MOC section, and later use them for my BoBS character too? Thanks!

    Future LEGO Pirates Set Speculation

    The pragmatist in me says that it isn't very likely Lego is reissuing old sets, and thus I'd be inclined to say the same about any potential new Pirate line in the works. However, that pirate backdrop you are standing in front of has a copyright of 2022 in the bottom left. This doesn't mean too much, but it does say that they printed it specifically for this year (vs say re-using some old stuff they had in storage); and because those are not cheap it also says that Lego is at least somewhat doing something pirate related (whether just marketing/promo related or otherwise, anything is something). At any rate, thanks for sharing!
  9. Have you cleaned and ironed any of the newer sails? Talking from 10210, QAR, or the new Barracuda Bay? Curious if those would be any different. 10210 especially since I don't want those to lose their stiffness. How do you ships look after 1,5,10 years? Primarily I'm thinking of my 10210 Imperial Flagship, I don't want its sails to go flat and lose their stiffness. Thanks all for the replies! You might be pushing me towards displaying with the sails on :D
  10. Thanks for the reply! I was hoping to hear from a few more folks, but that's okay I think for now most of my sails will remain stored away. Maybe some day I'll get brave haha.
  11. Hello, Looking for input/ experience/ advice. As my fleet continues to grow, I'm reconsidering how I would traditionally display my ships. Previously I would display them without sails, because I was too afraid that the sails would become dusty and/or deflated (not crisp). Sails I store in ziplock bags, with silica packets, and beneath books (keep them away from light, dust, and moisture). I'm specifically interested in how some of the 'newer' sails (10210, QAR, 21322) have held up for you so far, but any experience is welcome. Thanks for your input!

    Pirate Game

    This is fantastic! What rules do you use? I am working on making my own Lego Pirate Game (largely inspired by evil Stevie's). Also, do you have pictures of all the vessels used? Your bigger ships sound to be quite impressive MOCs. At any rate, super cool and would love to see more pictures if you have 'em!

    Queen Anne's Revenge Sterncastle Modifications

    I edited you title to make it more clear :P. Also changed "Stern castle" to "sterncastle" to be correct. I thought Google spell check was supposed to know these things lol.
  14. Hey guys, Quite a long time ago I posted my IF Mods here on these forums. I mentioned that I was able to make the SNOTty section just as sturdy as the rest of the ship, but I didn't show how. Well today I got a little less lazy and decided to take the photos and explain what I did. The modifications are quite minor (so much so I don't know why TLG didn't do it from the get-go), and they don't seem to affect the look or style much at all (the best mod I did was "under the hood" so it could look almost exactly the same). At any rate, you can see my bow mods Here :). Anyways, just thought I would share so let me know what you guys think!
  15. Hey guys, I finished my QAR (4195) Mods and added specific descriptions to each of the photos. I didn't change much on the whole of the ship (unlike my mods for the 10210 IF, which you can see Here if you like). However, I did make some fairly extensive mods to the sterncastle while trying my best to keep the look and feel of the ship the same. Also I would like to make a disclosure: My mods to the QAR (and just about any mods I make to sets) are not designed to be the best or to rival any of your guy's MOC level designs (they never could! :P). I instead try to focus on the spirit of the set itself. I like to add elements that enhance the play factor, embellishments, overall asthetic, or (if I am feeling bold) include what the set was "supposed" to entail. I say this not to as any sort of insult, but simply because I sometimes see relatively simple additions that seem to make the set feel much more "alive". Now that that's out of the way, here's what I modded/ added :P Widened the captain's cabin by 4 studs. Added a wall and door to enclose the captain's cabin. Added a bed to the captain's cabin. Added a desk and the shelf from 4191 to the captain's cabin. Added ladders to the cabin door "deck" and another bone ladder to the poop deck. Added stern chase cannons (optional). Other miscellaneous embellishments. Anyways, let me know what you think! PS- I wasn't smart enough to figure out how to add the photos here in the thread, but I might be able to be convinced to try it again :P.
