    [MOC] Sabre Island Anno Domini 2021

    Ahoy! The Barracuda has set sail and Redbeard is threatening the shipping routes once again! So the Bluecoats had to up their game to protect Imperial trade. For the start they have hastily restored the tower on the Sabre Island. What do You think about their effort? I designed this MOC as a tribute to my second Pirates set, that I think I got in 1990 and loved like hell. But I also wanted it to closely match the style of the new Barracuda. I also didn't want to use too many fancy and exotic elemens but efficiently use the stuff that most of us already have in our inventories. It's not too big with 1443 elements (excluding minifigs). The build is rather sturdy (maybe except for the furniture) but it still empoys some techniques and tricks that you might find interesting. I have published the instructions on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-71657/SleeplessNight/sabre-island-anno-domini-2021 There are also a few more pictures on flickr: Stay safe and fair winds!
  4. THIS IS NOT MY WORK Hamster Productions has created an absolutely amazing brickfilm with a great story, lovely animation, and perfect sound editing. It's about 15 minutes long and worth every second!
  5. LBSF Demeter: CL V Trade Ship Goddess of grain, agriculture, harvest, growth, and nourishment. Launched today, the latest from the Beauchamp Shipyard, the Demeter is the first ship of the new LBSF merchant fleet. A large well armed merchant, The ship is a balance of strength and capacity, a good utility ship for any occasion. A pair of bow chasers... And some ornate decor... Means you wouldn't want to catch a broadside... But can also appreciate the craftsmanship. All in all, maybe not the best in any 1 category.... But, Captain Lamont, will not be short of work for him and Demeter's new crew.
  6. A small ship to transport some cargo. I'm going to be honest, I h ate building small ships, just because I don't know what to do/how to design them.

    [MOC] HMS Midway

    I don't build boats often for the Governors, or Blue Coats if you prefer, but I do on occasion. I actually built this last year, but only just got around to taking photos. Midway Midway Midway Midway It may be one of my best builds yet, it certainly feels like it to me. I am annoyed at that fact, because it is a governor ship. They are easily the third, maybe the fourth favorite faction of mine. Imperials and Pirates being the top two (Not necessarily in that order) and the Governors and Armada vie for third place. Tell me what you think! EKnight
  8. The Olean fleet has been blockading the Terraversa since months, despite their best efforts, several Corrie and Eslandian ships have managed to pass through the blockade and landed hundreds of troops on that island, complicating the already complex situation. In response to this show of force, the ministry of the colonnies has ordered a couple of new ships to the Eltina Shipyards, where men were working at full capacity since the start of hostility. Here's one example of the newly commissioned by la Royale. Built for speed and firepower, this class of new frigates, along with other heavy hitters, will help Oleon to maintain its naval superiority. Duc de Boussac on the poop deck, apparently happy with the sailing performance of his new ship. To be licensed as a class 6 ship.
  9. The two soldiers were out for a patrol from Fort Arltrees. As they entered a small stand of trees, they came across a cute baby bear. They tossed it some cheese and then came close to pet its head. Then the mama bear appeared. As they fled for their lives, the soldier in front remembered something his cousin had told him as a child: "You don't need to run faster than the bear to get away, you just need to run faster than the guy behind you". With this in mind, he tossed his musket aside and ran a little faster.

    [MOC] El Puerto de Cartagena (Anno 1585)

    Ay seamates! I got some new fotos but had problems with the background due to size, hope you will enjoy anyway: Bienvenidos a Cartagena! Lower your anchor, take a bottle of rum and relax from your adventurous voyage through the caribbean sea! Puerto de Cartagena by Captain Störtebricker The harbour should reasamble the harbour of Cartagena de Indias which intense impression has burned into my mindn after a visit there. The city was one of the first foundations made by the spanish and became one of the connection point for the gold and silver routes. The fortifications of the city have been raided several times until they have been build as strong that no one could conquer them again. In 1585 the famous pirate Sir Francis Drake did so and conquered and looted the city. In the same year the main cathedral was finished, too. So I hope you can see what brought me to this idea. The harbour consists of 3 parts (by now...): El castillo: The fort on the hill could welcome you with a big volley so be sure that you are coming in on a frienndly mission. It is situated on a rock with a cave underneath to hide some stuff you dont want to bring into the harbour. For pirates a skeleton shows then how they will be threated. The main tower is already been demolished and now converted to a small barrack. In front of the dorr there is a trap door throwing you into the cave. The fortress should be way bigger but for me it works as representing the first corner of the main fort. The doors lead you into the city... The colonial warehouse: With the warhouse I tried to reassamble the famous colonia architecture. I features a fishing gear shop and a warehouse whti a big balcony. From there you can have a nice view on the main square in front of the cathedral... The cathedral: The main cathedral looks like a fortification but due to the rich inhabitants it has nice stained glass windows. But these inhabitants do not belive very much in god but more in gold so the altar is filled up with all the treasures stolen from the surrounding natives all around the caribbean. So come in and take a closer look! The cathedrals has detachable roofs and can be accessed by minfigs on all levels. Besides the cathedral there is right now the tavern from POTC but it can easily be removed to continue the pier to expand the harbour... (which I hope I can do!) All in all I hope you enjoyed your stay and be ready to set sail for your next adventour! - Captain Störtebricker (More fotos: Flickr Album Puerto de Cartagena )
  11. "Well she's not very fast, but she also isn't very maneuverable." Captain Tewton stated flatly. "Wait what?" Said, Master Shipwrite Jean Benoit "Not really much to look at either, though the new paint job has helped... I guess" Tewton continued "This design was used for 100s of years. And these are classic color schemes!" Benoit, between bewilderment and annoyance. "This was a major investment of resources and yard space." Benoit stewed. "I'm just teasing you, Sir. Well I mean, she is sturdy! Thats for darn sure. And man, can she haul some freight! I guess, I get why they used this design for 100s of years, you know, but also why they kept working on it." Captain Tewton was not the most polished Captain in the merchant fleet, but supposedly could sail a sea turtle with his undershirt and had an impeccable record. Perhaps his honesty was appropriate, in fact this was just the feedback Benoit had expected to get, more or less. The new ship would serve its purpose as a merchant well enough. Still though, Benoit had invested a lot in the design of this large Class V Merchant Vessel. "I think she looks pretty good from behind? Those thick lines and short design look good from the back?" Tewton was giggling at something, Benoit wasn't sure what, Benoit looked on concerned that he was laughing at the ship's stern, Tewton caught his misplaced anxiety and put him at ease, "Hey to each their own, my momma always said. Dont worry Sir, its a fine ship, a great crew, and an outstanding Captain... in my unbiased opinion." Tewton couldn't resist though... "And as you say, she has plenty of room in the old cargo hold..." Benoit again couldn't understand what Tewton was giggling about. Of course it had a tremendous cargo capacity. That was the whole intent of using this old design, what on earth was so funny?

    [MOC] Sabre Island 21

    Sabre Island MOC Enjoy!
  13. Captain Surlecoup, as an Olean privateer, made his first appearance in the Westface, while the RNTC was carrying out a mission in Terraversa. OL's mission in Westface had to solicit the captain's help after having detained by the local authority, despite their prior efforts in rescueing shipwrecked TVsans. The whole thing turned out to be a trap set by the lawless TV militia, and without the intervention of a more reasonable mind, war between OL and TV could have taken place years before. Then, our relentless captain has proved his competence and savoir-faire during the Lotus incident, delivering precious information about the motivation behind that sudden incursion of Lotii in El Oleonda, and in the subsequent sea battle, he, with his samourai friends, captured a Lotii warjunk. It's in recognition of his devotion to the Crown that this frigate was specially designed and built for him. In line with the latest advancement in OL's naval architecture, this ship has the particularity of offering more room for the crew, allowing them to better adapt to a prolonged journey on sea. Captain Surlecoup is going to board his new ship. And he's glad to find his companions of arm already on board. "Captain on the quarterdeck." Said the helmsan. "But where is the helm?" Asked a surprised Surlecoup. "Here it is. under the poop deck." Replied the man. "This should keep your clothes dry in bad weather." "Very well, set sails and head to the open sea." To be licensed as a class 6 ship. OOC: I beat my record on shipbuilding with these two ships, as my family and I endured another turn of knock down due to the virus where I live, which gave me a lot of building time, but the down side is the delivery service was down too, so I had to work with the existing bricks. This frigate was built after a model of French frigate that I found on the net, it's labeled as "a privateer frigate" and has the particularity of having an enclosed weather deck, or some sort of extended poop deck, not commonly seen on other frigates I think.

    [LEGO IDEAS] The Royal Flagship

    Ahoy, mateys! I'd like to present to you a Lego Ideas project - The Royal Flagship - a classic style, modular, set-like looking ship-of-the-line with lots of play features. SUPPORT NOW Stats and overview: Features: ---------- About: I started this project with a specific intention - to design a multi deck vessel that can be both - a Lego set-like looking ship that's fun to play with, and a decently realistic shelf model of a true ship-of-the-line. And all of this had to fit in the Lego Ideas framework, specifically it had to contain 3000 parts or less. No easy undertaking, and I've failed to come up with something that I liked a couple of times over the past years. This design now, however, I think it quite does it. Sure, it might not be playful enough to some, and not realistic enough looking to others, and then there's the fact there are only stud-shooters instead of ye olde Lego cannons... () But I hope the compromise I found is appealing to at least some of you; and that it proves that ships-of-the-line can be done as sets by Lego. Some decisions I took along the way: Use stud shooters instead of spring powered cannons (*boo-ing noises in the background* ) But hear me out - let's face it, no single set will ever contain that many classic cannons. So the Royal Flagship features easy to remove stud shooter based custom cannons that can be fired from outside the ship, but that can also as easily be replaced by your good old spring powered cannons - if you got enough of them, the space is there! Almost no interior, except for the captain's cabin. This decision was simply based on Lego Ideas' 3000 parts maximum. Feel free to fill the decks with whatever you would like to see though - there's enough headroom for minifigs to be placed on all decks! Relatively simple hull shape, little tumble home, no string rigging. Due to the modular approach, I just couldn't come up with anything more ornate/fancy/complicated - if you have some suggestions, however, feel free to elaborate! The Royal Flagship was very well received during last year's Bricks @nd Friends exhibition in Cologne; kids especially seemed to like the firing mechanism pretty well - we literally had a blast Let's see if I can take the ship to a few more exhibitions this year - if Corona permits. ---------- If you have questions, please ask! And if you got ideas for improvements, I'm all ears! If I convinced you - please support on Lego Ideas! And feel free to share with friends and other pirates enthusiasts - every vote counts! Thank you for watching SUPPORT NOW

    [MOC] Thin Blue Line

    "Thin Blue Line" The first line reloads while the second row takes aim. The third line waits their turn. The men are getting a head start on Movember so they can show up 24th Company in a few weeks. --------- Wanted to reuse the little green clearing from The Duel before breaking it down, so made this.

    [MOC] The Duel

    "The Duel" To determine a matter of honor (a crass comment made about the number of plumes in a bicorne), the two generals headed to the clearing before dawn by lantern light. As the sun rises, their seconds look on with a mix of excitement and apprehension.

    [MOC] La Flora

    Hello, I've not shown a vessel here in forever. How about a Frigate? Started in early 2019, this ship stood on my shelf unfinished for almost 2 years at this point. I finally decided to complete the rigging and add the missing sails the last couple weeks. I think this might be my most elaborate rigging job yet, hope it shows! La Flora is inspired by mid 18th century french frigates. First started but abandoned by Captain Green Hair, I purchased the parts from him and tried to stay close to the initial idea. Sails are old curtains, coloured with coffee. Not a single reddish brown piece was used in this ship. Ratlines are glued. No time for long description, here are the pics! Extra thanks to Sebeus, Kabel and Captain Green Hair for their quick feedback whenever needed!
  19. Hello to community, below a small digital MOD / MOC, a redesign of the classic pirates set 6267 Lagoon Lock-Up from 1991. I'm also a bit in the barracuda bay hype, while waiting for the set I played a bit around with the pirates theme and also photoshop. ;-) Maybe you like the redesign. 6267 Lagoon Lock-Up Revisited by legolux1973, on Flickr Edit: I also created building instructions for the MOC, you can download them (PDF File, for free, no registration) at the Webpage of my local RLUG under the below URL: http://afol.lu/afol52/filebase/index.php?file/51-6267-lagoon-lock-up-revisited/ If you like the MOC and/or the Instructions I would be really happy if you would vote for my LEGO Ideas Project Queen Elizabeth II at the LEGO Ideas Website: https://bit.ly/legoqueenelizabeth I would really appreciate. :-) Happy Building. :-) Stay safe and healthy, legolux1973

    [OL-FB] HRS Helios

    One of two ships originally designed to be an armed merchant men for the RNTC back when this limited skirmish on the island of Terraversa was well contained. The dramatic changes in the diplomatic mood of the Brick Seas caused the navy to step in and repurpose the ship mid-construction. The HRS Helios is now a full man-of-war. A total of 48 heavy guns, each broadside hold 24. Down below we can see two full decks of guns, followed by a third full deck for cargo, packed and ready. Her hull is large, long and wide, designed to hold both large cargos and while still maintaining a full gun deck to ward off Sea Rats. The ship remains equipped with cranes and extra cargo hatches for easy loading and unloading. Also, plenty of cloth to move the large ship. Though, had the word arrived at the Beauchamp Shipyard earlier, the Navy never would have paid for such a large and ornate stern section when they could have saved a penny and added a few more guns. Captain Gillette is an old pious disciplinarian. There is no cursing aboard his ship, he is never far from his family monk, who accompanies him into battle, and he begins each day with a prayer during the change in watch. He runs a tight ship, but the crew jokes that if any commander ever had the gods on his side, it is Captain Gillette. The thrifty Captain has more than a bit of embarrassment at the ornate design of his ship. Though at least the stern cannons add a practical element. And the pious Captain takes pride in daily recreating the God, Helios' journey across the Brick Seas and over the horizon. (Another shot, better for the bow piece but (like the rigging) the hoses didn't get rendered in this bottom on) Edit: coming soon hidden content to side by side the Helios and Phoebe (the sun and the moon) which are a pair of similar ships deliberately built to go together, but are not "sisterships."

    [MOC] A Flanking Maneuver

    As reported by an eyewitness, the bluecoats in the beach bulwark were unhurriedly taking potshots at the redcoat frigate that was slightly out of range. They simply didn’t have time to react when the redcoat lieutenant and marines rushed in from down the beach. When all was said and done, the redcoats made sure to knock over the bluecoats' stack of cannon balls.
  23. I wanted to use the landscape I made for "Out On Patrol" again before I took it apart, so I made an ambush scene with bluecoats. Comte de Rochambrick gets assassinated by brigands.
  24. Experimented some more with putting Lego system Bluecoats on the Duplo 7881 pirate ship. Next to another 7881 so you can see the Duplo stud base. The ship decking without all the stuff on it. Ghost pirates off in the distance!
