  1. The Castle of Captain Sabertooth is our contribution to a larger Captain Sabertooth (Kaptein Sabeltann) layout built by Scandinavian AFOLs. The whole layout will be on display at LEGO World Copenhagen, Denmark next year. Illuminated using the Brickstuff lighting system, which can be seen in the YouTube video below.
  2. The USS Florida Gator is a ship inspired by my Alma Mater. I have been hanging out here for a little while, but this is my first post and I would love some feedback. It was challenging trying to fit everything that I wanted with the narrow hull design, but I got creative. The captain's quarters is based on the BSB. 3 guns under the deck, as well as an armory/treasury, and a galley. Captain's quarters lifts out to reveal the brig. Several prisoners have been taken along their journey: Chief Osceola (FSU mascot), Davy (Tennessee mascot), UGA (Georgia mascot), and Mike the Tiger (LSU mascot). I'm also not sure how to include multiple pictures, so I'll have to fill subsequent posts. 20190917_144720 by Sean Williams, on Flickr 20190917_144730.5 by Sean Williams, on Flickr 20190913_113208.5 by Sean Williams, on Flickr Tennessee Volunteer walking the plank prior to ship extensions being outiftted 20190913_113159.5 by Sean Williams, on Flickr Bowsprit 20190913_113257.5 by Sean Williams, on Flickr Poop Deck 20190913_121717.5 by Sean Williams, on Flickr Small window at the bottom allows a little light into the brig 20190913_121615.5 by Sean Williams, on Flickr Captain Spurrier in his quarters 20190913_121631.5 by Sean Williams, on Flickr 20190913_121138.5 by Sean Williams, on Flickr Brig beneath the captain's quarters 20190913_121151.5 by Sean Williams, on Flickr 20190917_144050.5 by Sean Williams, on Flickr Below decks 20190917_144011.5 by Sean Williams, on Flickr In the galley cooking up LSU Tiger stew
  3. Ahoy my fellow captains, kind of a strange feeling to start this post, since I have been browsing this forum for more than a year now, admiring these countless pieces of art posted here. Actually, it's been my six-year-old son who constantly asked me to post our progress here - his father was a little shy and reluctant to do so, since he is never truly satisfied with his construction and still in awe regarding your astonishing models. But, you know, "Arrrrghh", what the heck, no need to hide anymore, I've been utterly in love with LEGO since I got my first bricks and can still vividly remember sitting on my child room's floor next to my brother, listening to "ALF" cassettes and (re-)build our barracuda for the 100th time.. The first pictures show the results of my sons' and my christmas-constructing period of 2016. Ever since, we weren't really happy with its form and as we were blown away by the exellency of ships like the "Le Fleuron" or the "Sang Royale" (and especially, of course, Cpt. Greenhair's unbelievably helpful ideas - THANK YOU, CAPTAIN!!), we wanted to do it differently this time. The pictures after the "Barracuda" show the process of our current project with the (according to my most patient, wonderful and tolerant wife...) fitting title "HMS Effortless". I think you know this feeling of always finding something to improve... lately, it's the positioning of the masts - the distance between the fore-mast and the mainmast seems to be too far. Please let us know what you think and where you see room for further improvement - my son and I are happy about every feedback! First the "old" Barracuda: And this is supposed to be legendary HMS Victory's "secret" sister ship, the HMS Effortless: (The balcony was my son's wish ) It's planned to give her full rigging, sails and of course the many missing details she deserves. it's always a question of time and money Here are more pics from her construction so far as well as more of the Barracuda.

    Raft with castaways

    A merchant ship is smashed against a rock. The survivors (two soldiers and a sailor) find themselves hanging onto a part of the deck. They manage to find some empty barrels and spars and a small sail, and use them to create a raft. Afterwards they spend a long time drifting, and trying to sail in the direction of civilization.

    [MOC] Snow-Rigged Merchant Brig "Boreas's Haul"

    Boreas's Haul Hi everyone! Long time viewer, but I just joined recently. Thought I'd share one of my first ships I've made with you guys and get some input from the masters ! I've always felt bad to know that poor little merchant guy (he deserves a name) was on his same tiny little merchant ship for a whole 27 years, so I decided to build him his own regal trading fleet. Even though his little plastic face still shows the same expression, I know deep down his smile is a little wider now. Anyhow, here are some some pictures of the ship: IMG_2779 by Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_2799 by Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_2805 by Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_2807 by Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_2787 by Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_2813 by Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_2816 by Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr He probably should think of investing in to cannons, but lets just say he was too greedy to get any (truth is that I forgot to build them). Also, I've always been a huge fan of modular sets so I also included a full interior: IMG_2817 by Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_2820 by Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr For the hammocks, I used the ones used in set 60153-1, and I highly recommend them for pirate builds. When at the proper width, they fit minifigures in so well that you can move the entire ship several times and they wont fall off. COMBINED by Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr I have an obsession with the old 2 x 3 printed books and old castle shields (anyone else?) so I tried to incorporate them in to my Captain's Quarters. Do you guys think they fit or should I remove them? IMG_2829 by Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr The line for the top of the ship is connected to the bow and stern and held up on the top with two clips, so even though it looks like a pain to get inside it only takes a few seconds by just lifting the line off the two clips. Here's the crew and the rest of the "fleet": IMG_2832 by Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr IMG_2836 by Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr If anyone wants to know, I designed the sails using photoshop and I made the sails using printable A4 pre-treated canvas paper, and then just doubled them. Anyhow, thank you so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day! Also, to all of you are wondering, don't worry about the old merchant ship! I put Fraunces in charge of it and it seems that he is enjoying his time on it . IMG_2837 by Neighborhood Merchant, on Flickr

    HMS Surprise MOC

    Hello fellow builders!! I just wanted to share with you my MOC of HMS Surprise (a frigate that was commissioned in 1794), and to ask you for your help and support for my project. For more (and better) pics with a description of my MOC you can go to https://ideas.lego.com/projects/9f73a563-081e-4726-9437-dff9a5293641 if you really like it, and think it'll make a cool new Lego set, I would also love to have your support for HMS Surprise so we can turn a design into a real Lego Set. Thanks!!!
  7. So, I'm back again with another MOC, this time I thought I'd tackle the WLO-5 Speeder Tank (aka. the Pirate Tank) seen throughout the Clone Wars by Hondo and his gang. WLO-5 Speeder Tank When I first started the design for this, it was heavily based off of screenshots since I couldn't find anything else. When I was almost finished, I realized that I had scale drawings of this thing the entire time that were included on the Blu-ray (Which I have included on my flickr). I realized almost immediately that my proportions were WAY off. So, I started from scratch. And this was the result. From the start, I wanted to try and incorporate an interior into the build, there wasn't a huge amount of space after the rebuild, but I was able to fit one in. It's not super detailed, but I was able to get the basic shapes, the driver, and most importantly fit the couch at the back, including a bottle of pirate rum. The rear hatches can open and the turret can rotate. You have to remove the turret gunner’s legs for him to fit, but given that the actual pirates legs would extend into the interior it works visually. A couple comparison photos with my Delta-7B and AAT for size. Starhawk Speeder Bike While I was at it, I thought I'd design some Pirate speeders to go with the tank. I didn't realize just how small they would be at minifig scale, so I had to simplify them quite a bit. Overall though I'm happy with the design, and by removing a few plates you can accommodate 2 riders. And a comparison to my Delta-7B. Hope you enjoy.

    Inspiration- A Space Pirate Ship.

    Get ready to sail the 7 star systems with this fearsome vessel! Solar powered light speed engines, a fearsome crew of 4, plus their one legged captain, this ship is ready to tangle with anyone who comes across it! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/f8b37d14-140b-4d3c-a43c-04b246421ffc/comments_tab?comment_uuid=548d54cb-e7c5-498b-a41f-77cbcc5359df#comment-548d54cb-e7c5-498b-a41f-77cbcc5359df&gid=1&pid=1
  10. Hello, I am normally not a big fan of the official LEGO ships and I tend to rip them away for pieces for my own ships designs. But the 6243 Brickbeard's Bounty my sister gave me was quite nice but, like other official ships, too bulky. I Moded it in order to add the vessel more lenghth and to add a second deck to make it more threatening with 2 batteries of guns ! After all, a great pirate ship deserves more guns ! Now this ship is closer to a brig and has a better overall look IMO. The purpose was not to alter it too much, to make it instantly recognizable despite of the modifications. Let me know what do you think of it !
  11. The infamous pirate Zublius Von Wreck has been quite successful lately, capturing three ships in his last two patrols at sea. He's added the ships to his fleet, and that means extra expenses. Those ships won't crew themselves. So, even though NPCs don't normally build MOCs, here's a small scene for ZvW increasing his ship levels. "OK boys, close 'er back up and bury it good. I got yer payroll!" And my apologies to @Professor Thaum. Any similarities to the First National Bank of Tortuga are purely coincidental a sincere form of flattery!

    Basilica of the Faith

    Bart has created a Basilica of the Faith for the Bluecoats in the Brethren of the Brick Seas. Come check out this big miniature and other great MOCs in the Brethren of the Brick Seas in the Pirate Forum.
  13. Hideouts As everyone knows, any real pirate needs a secret base from which to operate. A hidden cove, camouflaged anchorage, a giant sea cave hide-away, or similar. A place to refit and rest, enjoy good spirits and easy company, dock prizes, stow loot, sort their captured goods, and hold prisoners for ransom. In short, they need a true pirate Hideout! Such Hideouts can now be established in the Brick Seas, and these will allow Black Flag pirates a secret base to end their turn in while keeping their location secret from prying eyes and over-zealous port officials or tax collectors. General Rules A Hideout can be established on *any* island in Terra Nova Hideout locations are secret, only known to the owner and any who he/she wishes to tell (and the MRCA committee) Each player can have one (1) active hideout at any time (And the Sea Rat faction can have an additional two (2) Hideouts - see below) Only Black Flag ships can dock at a hideout Only those knowing both the location and the password of the Hideout can dock there Ships docking at a Hideout operate in secret and will not have their locations published in the KPA Ships docking at a Hideout are at the mercy of the Hideout owner and can be taken without a fight A Hideout can be abandoned at any time by the owner, by giving public notice Establishing a Hideout To establish a Hideout, you must post a MOC of the Hideout of minimum 32x32 (or equivalent). This build (or series of builds) should show the Hideout and its surroundings. Creativity is encouraged! A link to the Hideout must be posted in this thread with the date. The name of your Hideout may be published publicly, but keep password and location secret. You then decide on a location (island) for the hideout and a password, and send this in a pm to the MRCA committee (Currently @Bregir, @Capt Wolf, and @Captain Genaro) who will maintain a database on these. The password allows you to enter the hideout in the MRCA, and have to be given as destination in the tMRCA form. You can submit your build as a freebuild with the freebuild form. Setting up a Hideout costs 300 dbs. Sea Rats are pirates by nature, and only need 150 dbs to establish a hideout. NB: The Sea Rat faction can have up to two (2) active Hideouts at any time. These are free and requires only a minimum 16x16 microbuild to activate. Discovering (and Destroying) a Hideout There are three ways in which a hideout can be discovered. Once discovered, the location of the Hideout is publicly revealed, and allows for challenge. Through the grapevine… It can be hard keeping your movements secret. The Hideout remains hidden for the first three turns after being established, after which location and name of the Hideout is revealed in the KPA. (In the first KPA after the third turn) If a build showing some aspect of life at the Hideout, of at least 20x20 in size is submitted, it will stay secret for an additional two (2) turns. This can be repeated indefinitely. (Links to these builds will have to be edited into the post in this topic!) By an Adventure! There are those who wish nothing good for the free of heart and loose morals. An aMRCA can target an island with the express intent of flushing out a Hideout. Once the first round of choices have been handled, if there is one or more Hideouts on that island, a random one will be revealed to the adventurer. By treachery or espionage. Anyone with the knowledge of password and location of the Hideout may betray it and reveal the Hideout to someone else, or decide to use the information himself. NB: A hideout will always be active the first 3 turns after establishment. (Unless dissolved by the owner) Anyone who discovers the password and location of a Hideout can destroy it. To destroy a Hideout, the discoverer must present a minimum 16x16 build showing some aspect of the discovery/destruction and publicly post the password and location of the hideout. Once the Hideout is closed down, the discoverer steals any the hidden treasures and receives d6x25 dbs and a chance to win a BoBS card. Once destroyed, all vessels in the Hideout must immediately leave (by the next MRCA turn). A word of advice - if you are a pirate and have taken a prize into your Hideout, it may be prudent to let a potential buyer take it over only after it has been sailed to a nearby "official" port. You do not to want to accidentally divulge the zone in which your Hideout is located! NB: These rules are subject to clarification and adjustment once they are play-tested. You will not lose your hideout, but may find some conditions being adjusted. NB: An example will be posted within a few days.
  14. The court day finally came, the infamous pirate Harrison Torn was conducted to the Hotel de Ville of Lavalette, then brought to a small room. He looked around and asked "where's the jury, where's the audience?" "There's no jury, no audience, only me and monsieur l'inquisiteur." Replied the judge in a cold, monotonous voice, then he added "shall we proceed, monsieur l'inquisiteur?" The man behind the small desk said "Your honour, the man you see here is accused of piracy, he was caught in the act by one of our fleet, I hereby ask a fast and severe punishment." "Very well, the evidence against him was overwhelming, send this man to the gallows." "But...I...I protest" stammered Harrison Torn. The inquisitor intervened, aloud, "the culprit said he's filled with remorse and he has no objection to the sentence." The judge nodded "Right. Next!"  The execution and funeral of Harrison Torn was a lovely affair. Lavalette had recently built a new gallows just up the coast (actually a converted smugglers crane). The pirate himself gave a moving last speech, something along the lines of "It's not bloody fair..." Tragically, most of it was lost to the noise of the wind. Death of a pirate by Ross Fisher, on Flickr Harrison Torn's body hung there for a week or so as a warning to other pirates, before it was cut down by a small group of locals, who preferred their rum without import tax. This has been a collaboration between myself and @Bodi. Let it be a lesson to anyone else considering piracy in Oleonaise waters.

    [MOC] Blow, Harry, Blow!

    Three brave survivors (or maybe not so brave... or maybe not all af them, but nevermind) on the raft escape from ancient beast. After a sea battle with Imperial ship, Harry and Olaf were trap on a raft under leadership of old sea dog Bartholomew Gingerhead. While Harry blowing the sail, and Olaf work with a paddle, fearless captain throws harpoon after harpoon into the monster! It won't eat them! Or?.. Place your bets, Gentlemen!
  19. Previously: Sinbad the Pirate Captain Sulu, captain of the Golden Dragon, decided to set out for lands uncharted and search for treasure. There were many tales of pirates who sailed beyond the known lands to find an island where which to bury their treasure. Sulu hoped to chance upon one or more such treasures. As such, he recruited a Platoon of men to sail with him into the unknown to help protect him against any potential dangers. They set out from Fatu Hiva and landed on an island simply known as #3 on an obscure map he bought off a drunk sailor. They landed without incident and began to explore the island. What would he and his crew find on the island?

Fish Market The Trial of Sinbad The Trial of Sinbad part 2 The Trial of Sinbad part 3 You claim my client is "not nice." You're twisting my words! I'm saying your client is guilty of acting evilly. Gentlemen of the court, you may not realize this, but one of the causalities when the HMS Mardier's Misfit sank had a widow who lives in this very city. A Corrington officer brought her the bad news. She was greatly distraught and now had no way to provide for herself and her household. The Corrington officer could do nothing more than offer his condolences. But when Sinbad heard about her plight. He brought her enough money to live on for at least the next year. Now you tell me, does this sound like the actions of a man bent on evil? To be continued...

You see, I have here a notarized statement saying as such: And where did you get such a document? From your notary of course. Ah, I see. Objection sustained. But... but... attacking our ships is just wrong! Um, well, that's true too. Defendant, how do you respond? To be continued...
  25. Previously: Chapter 1 Chapter 2: Sinbad the Pirate Hang The Rules Rescued Shipwright Shipwright's Office The Komodo Dragon "Because They're Pirates!" Fish Market The Trial of Sinbad The Trial of Sinbad part 2 You say it is wrong for my client to attack your ships. Let me give you another scenario. Imagine with me, a scene down by the docks. One man, a good business man, owns a warehouse. But a better business man buys him out. Now, is this better business man wrong for being better? Of course not! He's just proven himself superior in his trade. Can we please got on with this? Of course, but just as if nothing would happen if the less shrewd warehouse owner had put up a fuss about being bought out, so to should nothing happen to my client. As already proven, his actions were sanctioned by Corrington's Vice Admiral himself. Just because you don't like that my client practiced his superior skills against Corrington's ships is inconsequential. Um, hmm, that makes sense but it still doesn't seem right. Or course it's not right! No matter what he says, it's not nice to sink other people's ships! So it comes down to moral character does it? Let me give you another example... To be continued...
