    Captain Valiant's "El Morro"

    Due to a personal visit, my first creation is mostly inspired by the "Castillo de San Pedro de la Roca" also called "Castillo del Morro" from Santiago de Cuba, but also by other Morros from Havana and San Juan in Puerto Rico. "El morro" refers to the rock or the hill, the fortress is built on and had mostly its purpose in keeping the towns save from pirates. I wanted especially make the round towers, but step by step added more of the details, eventhough the real and complex form is not possible to rebuild, at least for me. So I kept it boringly square-shaped, but still like the (not) end result quite a bit. I will make some 1-1 comparisons, but first I'd like to tell you the story of Captain Valiant(You can read it or just skip it and scroll down and see the result): You remember Captain Valiant? Sure you do.... hmm, well actually I didn't knew who he was was until I heard his amazing story: He was the Captain of the Santa Cruz, the Armada Flagship, although he doesn't like to mention that the real leader was not him but the admiral. So, after they conquered all the caribbean and the southern seas, found the eldorado and got tons of gold, he decided to retire and start a banana plantation. Captain valiants vision by Victory Count, en Flickr It was there, 5 years ago, when he heard rumours about a bay full of bloody pirates and they were coming to get the gold. Standing at the beach, tasting his rrich flavoured self grown fresh banana, he had a vision about a fortress that would keep any pirates away, and keep the town, plantation, habitants, goods and gold save. He would call it El Morro: "El morro de Capitan Valiente". The last dinner and blessings in the church by Victory Count, en Flickr He went to the local church and asked the priest for his blessings for this new project. And of course the priest accepted quickly, if he just keeps those sinners away. Drinking the wine, eating the bread, they celebrated the last dinner, and with god on his side he started to build this big fortress. ring them bells by Victory Count, en Flickr Five years gone by and finally the bells were ringing for the opening ceremony. captains domain by Victory Count, en Flickr "Please step in," he said proudly, and to my honour he showed me all the facilities, "this over there is my cabin, but I'll show you later." captain talk by Victory Count, en Flickr "It's an honour to introduce you to my long time special guest Red Beard" he said without hiding how proud he was. "With him here, we have not to fear anything. But we treat him good, he can even have his parrot, it's like the presidential suite, right RedBeard" ... "Arrrh" is all RedBeard said. But the captain tells me that they are almost like friends, and when he can't sleep he goes down to him and they talk all the night about their ships and long past tales... kids playin by Victory Count, en Flickr He also tells me that they already played together under the palm trees with their ships when they still were kids, and I'm quite sure he was trying to surpress some tears while telling me. el cocinero by Victory Count, en Flickr "Right beside the lock-up we hace the kitchen; Vamos cocinero, hurry up, it's almost hora de comer, dinnertime!" "Aye capitán!" loading the cannonballs by Victory Count, en Flickr "Here is where the action happens, the cannonballs have to go up on the roof, sometimes this have to happen quickly, thats why we have this special construct. But I need some fresh air the roof is where we are heading too" Says the captain, leading me from the basement through the stairs up to the top. el morro dorm by Victory Count, en Flickr "Let's rest for a moment, here on the first floor is the dorm, even the soldiers need some rest sometimes. Well you can imagine I have something more comfy for me old bones." guns are ready by Victory Count, en Flickr "So what do you say? Are we ready or are we not? May the pirates come, the cannonballs will give them a warm welcome, ha! Yes that's what it is all about... Now let's go outsie to see my plantation" el jardinero by Victory Count, en Flickr "Meet Banana Joe, our gardener; hey what's up Joe?" "Hi captain, look at all those bananas and coconuts, it's a good year!" says Joe, as he notice the boat that shouldn't be there, but his thoughts return quickly to the bananas which seem constantly to disappear somehow... el morro53 well by Victory Count, en Flickr "And here we have the cook again, getting some water... Don't forget the fish, it looks like there is something in the net." "Yes captain" responds the cook, but his eyes wander once again to the horizon, where he sees that shipwreck which always fascinated him. "I'm sick of this job and this captain, always running around, do this, do that, hurry up... Maybe RedBeard is right and I should join him on this Barracuda ship..." he thinks. "So, before you're invited to a delicious meal, I 'd like to show you my cabin which I'm specially proud of" Captain valiants cabin by Victory Count, en Flickr "Look at this beauty, what a great gift." he says as he shows me a big indigan mask. "King Kahukas mask. Everybody thinks it was red, but no, pure gold! He was a good guy, wonder what happened to him... Now get out of my cabin, I need some rest before dinner" he says, taking his helmet of, revealing his long curly hair. And I'm not sure if I'm more shocked by his hair or the impression that I had for a moment, seeing something suspicious through the window. But it wasn't the moment to tell the captain, so I left his cabin. We had no idea what was goin on meanwhile... free RB by Victory Count, en Flickr RedBeard had long planned to escape from there and get back to his beloved Barracuda, and this was the moment. One scary guy was setting the bomb while this mate had other problems. sunset shark attack by Victory Count, en Flickr Front View: el morro front by Victory Count, en Flickr Rear View: el morro rear by Victory Count, en Flickr If you made it here, let me know what you think, and also what could be done better. Here I add now some "Lego vs. Reality" comparisons: el morro round tower by Victory Count, en Flickr My favourite, but it's so difficult to build round towers with Lego. There is a small and two slightly different bigger towers, but wasn't sure which version to choose, what do you think? el morro cannons by Victory Count, en Flickr This is nothing big, just found in funny to put actually the cannon this way to have the larger range)guess those were supposed to be mortars. el morro entrance by Victory Count, en Flickr This was just an entrance to another part of the building, but I liked it that much that it became the main entrance. cannonball ramp by Victory Count, en Flickr Found this cannonball ramp rather interesting, so I was glad I could rebuild it somehow. el morro well by Victory Count, en Flickr Well, the well was quite easy, but still like it, but since I didn't found the proper place, it had to be placed outside... el morro bell by Victory Count, en Flickr Well, the bell, not so accurate but also like this one. chapel by Victory Count, en Flickr Finally, the church from the story is also part of "El Morro" but is actually the other way round. Unfortunately i just have pictures from the LDD yet. Not very detailed, but I liked to give this little chapel its place. Tried to add the Christ minifig, but that was rather weird looking. So thanks for watching and reading.

    Imperial Armada Layout

    Hi everyone, Not that long ago I posted my ship on Eurobricks. Now my layout is finished and just in time for Bricks am Meer this weekend. For more pictures visit my Flickr album. Feedback and questions are appreciated. Sander
  4. Hello All, I have exhibited at Legoworld in the Netherlands this year with a landscape based on the first pirates series. The landscape is 7 meters long and 1.25 wide. I created this landscape with my brother and it took ,roughly said, 5 months to built. We wanted a bigger landscape, but we did not have that many blue baseplates. The landscape contains a small town with a wall around it. There is a small harbor and a bit of countryside. Behind the wall is a big sea with several Islands of the Imperial soldier. There is one big island with Islanders. The island contains a volcano, several waterfalls and cottages of the Islanders. Across the sea is a fortress of the Imperial Armada. In the end corners of the landscape are several pirate hideouts and a city of gold (Eldorado?). Here is the link to the pictures. http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=560054 Questions and comments/feedback are welcome. Sincerely, Sander

    Lego Imperial Armada

    So my birthday is coming up and i just LOVE the Imperial Armada minifigures. If anybody here has any idea where to get some, please let me know. I've tried Ebay and Bricklink, but I don't think they have enough to quench my conquistador lust!

    MOC: Spanish Armada revisited

    [pid][/pid] 161A Hi there! Some time back I was lucky to obtain the hull parts for almost 2 Spanish ships. So I was curious to find out how far I could get in re-inventing the good old Spanish Armada! However, I tried to include some modification - partially because I preferred my ideas, partially because of lack of bricks So, here they come (as they are in blue and white I tried to go for a new background, but I will admit easily that red is not the right colour for the sea...) This is something which I quite like: You can remove the grey part of the deck to access the hold. There they go, sailing away into the sunset: This was a bit of a retro-approach. So I will go for something more modern next time. (And more heavily armed...) Till then, happy easter!

    Spanish Armada 14 Gun Brig

    [pid]S-PS22-15D[/pid] Here she is! My very first ship in two years. I've had the armada flagship hull laying around since I bought it (only the hull) 2-3 years ago and I finally found the insiration to build something with it. It was a truly challenging build due to how narrow the pre-fab hull is. But I think I where able to pull it of in the end. This also happens to to be my very first Brig, Gallery Hope ya'll like it and have a great day!
