  1. Island Outpost

    This model was inspired by a LUG challenge focused around the Pirates theme. While I usually only make a few Pirates builds each year, it has always been one of my favorite genres. The one limit for the challenge was that your entry had to be no bigger than the largest official Pirates set. I have always been more attracted to the islands, forts, and land settings than ships themselves, so I settled on building a small fort on an island. A single 32×32 baseplate served as the foundation for the model. For once a peaceful day with no pirates, or enemy ships in sight of the small Imperial outpost. Which makes it a fitting time to restock with some fresh supplies. More pictures are available on brickbuilt. Thanks for looking
  2. This modular model was inspired by sets 70409 (Shipwreck Defense) and 70411 (Treasure Island) for this small pirate port, with a raft that was mostly taken from set 6240. (Kraken Atttackin') The model also features a crane from a Pirates of the Caribbean combination model called Port Royal, and a dual cannon turret inside a giant swiveling stone skull. (That dual cannon part was inspired by WWII-inspired movie "the Guns of Navarone") The whole model comes apart into three sections: - loading crane - makeshift dock - defense turret The crane can spin around all 360 degrees. This part of the make-shift dock can take "battle damage": the curved section under the cannon falls back a bit, as shown here. The inside of the skull-shaped cannon turret features two guns and a telescope. This part forms most of the skull. This Ninjago part goes on top of the mast as the flag for my pirate's faction. The raft features a sail inspired by Spongebob set 3817, (Flying Dutchman) and a body inspired by set 6240. (Kraken Atttackin') The LDD file for the port ONLY is here. If you are curious what ship calls Skull Island home, please see here for the topic (and LDD file!) on the three-masted frigate "The Terror". The port should be purchased around Christmas of this year! Comments, Questions, and complaints are always welcome!

The Secret of the 8 Provinces - Prelude The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 1st Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 2nd Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 3rd Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 4th Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 5th Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 6th Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 7th Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 8th Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 9th Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 10th Chapter The Secret of the 8 Provinces - 11th Chapter (Ye be here) (Build by Captain Braunsfeld) Captain Cookie continued: "After resurfacing, our highwayman, the Red Fandango, headed back to his crew in a gloomy mood." "It seemed to him that all the monkeys on the whole island were laughing at him. And, as a matter of fact, they were." "So the Red Fandango was near an island?" Lady de Summers put in. "Oh, yes," Captain Cookie returned. "He had just landed from the Sparkle in a little dinghy to search for the treasure. You will remember that according to the maps, the wreck of the 8 Provinces was to be found in an island's cove." "The look on his face immediately told his companions of his lack of success - though of course, he hadn't been foolish enough to let them know all the particulars. He was no Trelawney - not he! "This, naturally, cast his mates down into the dregs too. Well, at least it cast his first mate Wilkes into the sulks - Jim was always happy in any situation as long as he didn't have to row, and he had done the job on the voyage out..." "They set out to return to the ship, but already the Red Fandango was thinking of what his next move would have to be." To be continued... Another build for Captain Braunsfeld's storyline, and another rowboat from me! Those are really remarkably fun to build! One more overview shot (without the boat): And now the story is back over to Captain B! Enjoy, C&C are welcome!
  4. Who else here played the older LEGO games? For example LEGO Island, Racers, Soccer Mania, etc. Well I recently just got Island 2 on the ps1 in the mail and Ive been replaying them and Ive had a blast of nostalgia. I wish LEGO would remake some of these or at least bring back some of the ideas presented in them.
  5. Amazing part one by Sir Stig Part two: After the discoveries in Breshaun, Jan Zwartbaard went asap to Trador. Lord Maximilian Damaximus was easily convinced to sent at least an exploration party. Jan Zwartbaad could use the AQAR to sail to New Haven. The 50 gun vessel would be a safe head quarter for exploration. Once arrived at the beach, they set up a small camp ashore, manned by 40 soldiers. 50 soldiers stayed in the AQAR and 10 soldiers went exploring the jungle together with Jan Zwartbaard and a few Tenotclaxcan warriors. Zwartbaard hoped those natives would be helpfull when encountering new tribes. The jungle itself kept surprising Zwartbaard. So many wonderfull colours and animals. Luckily he was not a Corringtonlander or he would have been distracted all the time figuring out the newly discovered fauna and flora. Sometimes, he looked around him as he was sure they were being watched, but he could not see other humans. Part three: If the calculations were right, they would be in the middle of the island now. They would discover a lake soonish. And indeed, a few minutes later, they arrived at a complete new world. What they saw was not a flourishing village, but a destroyed and razed settlement. Upon arriving, he could not find a single living soul. Jan Zwartbaard ordered his soldiers to search for any clue they could find. It was at this point his Tenotclaxcan friends were helpfull as their well-trained ears heard some silent noise under one of the burnt houses. They quickly headed to what used to be the biggest building, discovering a small entrance to a hide-out. The natives they saw inside the hide-out were frightened and refused to come out. Jan Zwartbaard understood that they were too late. Mardier already arrived first and burned down the village in their struggle to find the treasure. Jan Zwartbaard ordered to give food to the survivors. Accepting his losses and not looking forward to report his defeat, he decided to stay a bit longer here and ordered his men to start building a campment in the village. 2 Soldiers went back to the shore to get 20 more soldiers and some supplies and materials. The more food they gave to the natives, the more they came out of their hide-outs and out of the jungle. Due to the actions of Jan Zwartbaard, the natives became friendly and with the help of the Tenotclaxcans, some sort of communication started. It was a surprise when the Tenotclaxcans understood the words of the natives and vice versa. It appears that the village they discovered is the capital of the Azclaxcans Tribes and they are relatives of the Tenotclaxcans. It were indeed orange wearing people who raided the village when they found out there was no huge amount of gold stored in the houses. They probably went to the next village, so the natives fear that their neighbours will have had the same destiny. After hearing what horrible deeds Mardier did, Jan Zwartbaard announced they had to go back to the known world to ask for back up and more resources. He appointed one of his sergeants in charge of 20 soldiers who would stay on the island to help rebuilding the other villages together with the Azclaxcans and some of the younger Tenotclaxcans who have no wife at home who would be angry because they would be really really late for dinner. Just when they said goodbye, the prince of the Azclaxcans, Prince AzTe Hek, asked permission to his father, King AzTe Nek, to accompany Jan Zwartbaard. The King not only gave permission, but also handed out a golden bracelet filled with precious diamonds to Jan Zwartbaard. That’s why Mardier burned the village down, they didn’t find anything as it was hidden as well! With the deepest bow he ever could do, Zwartbaard thanked the chief and started his journey back home together with prince AzTe Hek and a small MAESTRO party. Deep in thoughts, he figured how MAESTRO could secure the future of those natives. It would be a matter of time before other factions will visit the natives. He took a last glimp over his shoulder to see the Azclaxcan King waving goodbye. Some more overview pictures Thanks a lot for reading and commenting! Congratz to everyone who participated in this challenge and the other challenges! It was a wonderfull Book 1 and I am looking forward to Book 2! I have to thank the Eslandolan members for their activity through book 1. I am very happy I choosed Eslandola as faction as we were an united faction, even when divided in multiple trade companies. Go MAESTRO! Go Eslandola!
  6. [GBW] The Secret Project Somewhere in the Plantasea region, lies an old abandoned castle, build on a forgotten island. The Plantasea forces will use it for their special... projects!

  7. The Call of Cthulhu

    Just released my "The Call of Cthulhu" project on LEGO Ideas yesterday :-) As a big fan of H.P. Lovecraft's mythology I decided to build a set based on his short story "The Call of Cthulhu", which was released in 1928 and might probably be the most famous tale by this author. About the scene (might contain spoilers for those who haven't read the story yet): The scene of my model depicts the arrival of the norwegian sailor Gustaf Johansen and his crew in the city of R'lyeh which was built by alien beings aeons before humanity inhabited the earth and is described as a cyclopean city of titan blocks and sky-flung monoliths (decorated with strange runes). It was sunk to the ground of the ocean, where Cthulhu (an ancient alien being) had to wait for the stars to align the right way so R'lyeh would rise again to the surface. While exploring the ancient ruins the sailors accidently release the "Great Old One" from his prison and try to escape aboard the "Alert", a derelict ship, that was discovered by the sailors earlier... About the Minifigures: I've tried to build LEGO versions of this mighty "Old One" before but only the release of the 13th series of LEGO's "Collectable Minifigures" provided the minifigure-squidhead I was waiting for since it perfectly fits this creatures Appearance! The combination with the wings of the 14th series gargoyle, the 15th serie faun's legs and the 16th series little devil finally rounded up the list of needed parts to complete this awesome minifigure (although it would be great to have a more dinosaur-like tail like the 5th series lizard man - wich sadly can't be combined with the wings). To represent the sheer size of Cthulhu I used the minifig-trophy-statuette of the 9th minifigure serie's "Hollywood Starlet" for the sailors. They represent Gustaf Johansen and two of his frightened crewmen. If you like it, please support it! You might also be interested in my other projects like the life-sized human skull or my RPG boardgame.
  8. Built for the 2017 Brickstory contest. I’ve been wanting to do some more pirate themed builds for a while now, and the Brickstory contest provided a great opportunity with its ‘Age of Piracy’ category. The island can split in half to reveal a path, cannon, and other details inside, and the winch holding the boat is fully functional. This paradise of a pirate island serves as the base of operations for Captain Hookey Hand and his crew. With everything from canons and lookout towers, to sun-bathing boats and planks to walk, the island is incredibly popular with his band of compatriots. Lots more pictures on Brickbuilt Thanks for looking, C&C welcome
  9. [MOC] The Pirate Haven (Name pending)

    Hi again everyone! Here is a countinuation of my "classic style" lego MOC. This time a complete original of a pirate haven inspired by the port-city of Nassau from the "Black Sails" HBO show. An overview of the pirate haven: Cliffside having an eerie look to it: A cast away on a raft from set no. 6273: Shipwrecks and natives all cramed up in the unexplored twelve by few studs area: Yo-ho yo-ho a party life for me: Close ups of the fort entrance and the fort itself overlooking the whole port: The business end of the pirate haven: Guard asleep on duty (probably had a long party the night before): Low caliber gun guarding the port: And last, the smallest ship sailing the Caribbean Brickseas is the fast Cutter flying the red "no quarter shall be given" Jolly Roger, now at port with its crew unloading the loot from the latest raid:
  10. MOC Lighthouse

    After a very long time, I finally finished another MOC. I was asked to build a lighthouse to fit the port of the city layout at Kocke Klub's largest exhibition so far (photos from the exhibition can be seen here). This is what I built. The biggest challenge was to build something different from my last Lighthouse MOC. Luckily, I was limited to 1 32x32 baseplate, so I had a good starting point for the smaller size of the model. Additionally, I decided to try a different technique for the walls to create a stone facade. The upper white part was built similarly, but I used more 1x2 bricks to make it sturdier. I used the red window frames as I recently got some extras, and red is the colour I associate with traditional lighthouses, so it was my first choice. The only life on the islans is the greenery. There's not much rain, and the water surrounding the island is pretty salty, so the conditions are not perfect. Most of the plants are a bit dried from the sun. Since there's no visitors to the island, the plants have spread all around, partly covering the remains of the path to the lighthouse. What makes this MOC special in my eyes, is the fact that it's one of the rare builds where I didn't have to make a single BL order. It sure feels great just to build from what's on the table, with no long breaks while waiting for orders.
  11. Port Jamaica Blueprints

    Here is a rough draft of what I like to call Port Jamaica. https://flickr.com/photos/145745371@N02/sets/72157677678837686 I only have the sketch and an LDD design, but so far it looks quite swell! It is based off of historical Port Royale before it sunk, and Havana from Assassain's Creed IV. It includes sets 6267, 6274, 6265, and 6259. Custom buildings are some towers, and storehouse, and a little tavern. Any comments or criticism is acceptable! What do you guys think? Temple or no temple?
  12. Oleon has begun the construction on the Island Stéphanique. Stephanique has one very large bay, which is actually kind of a river delta. iIn the middle of the bay lies a small patch of land. That piece of land was the latest destination of the Beatrix on what might be her last expedition under the command of Captain Sebeus. Making land... After some exploring in the waters around the Island (looking for suitable docking area's) the construction began. A temporary harbor was set up to allow ships to deliver manpower, supplies and construction material. It is certain that this project will consume a lot of time and resources but let's hope it will be worth it.

Cantu's House Even a Pirate Has a Sweet Tooth La Oleon Captain's Cabin Tropical Fruit Decision Lumber Camp Freddy's Big Haul The Golden Dragon The Capture of "El Polla" Swamp Raid Pirate Lagoon Palm Tree Inn Statues of Justice Secrets in the Hold Pirate Dojo Sinbad's Choice The Piranha's Plunder The Darting Frog Water Torture They found the buried treasure just like the whaler said they would. Li didn't trust any of the rest of his crew so he and Sinbad journeyed alone into the interior of the island. After some hours of digging, Sinbad unearthed one of the largest chests he had ever seen. "Be quick about it!" shouted Li. "Get this thing open and let's see if the treasure is as good as was promised." Ever since Captains Sulu and Zheng had come away from their voyages with booty and ships and Li with nothing, the captain had been behaving erratically. Trying desperately to do anything to prove that he was just as good a pirate as the rest of them. Sinbad had already put down one mutiny against the captain and he feared what might happen if they returned to the ship empty handed this time. The crew were tired of getting nothing for their efforts. Thankfully, Sinbad could breathe a sigh of relief when the chest finally opened. They had found a rare cache of gems! "Aha!" exclaimed Li. "I'm a rich man Sinbad!: Li drew his sword and continued, "You've been the only one I could trust these past weeks Sinbad. But now that I have the treasure, I don't need you. I don't need any of the crew! I'll buy the loyalties of a new set of scallywags. Ones I can trust to not double-cross me! But you, you can't be bought. What can I do to stop you should you ever decide to stop serving me?" Sinbad was shocked. He knew Li was made of scum, but he still didn't expect this! Sinbad had chosen to follow this man, to remain loyal to him even when he started acting irrationally. But, as the men who had tried to murder Sinbad had to deal with the consequences of their actions, so did Sinbad. He started to back away from Li when a voice called out from the trees. "It will always be treachery with you, won't it son?" asked Cho. The last man either Li or Sinbad expected to see emerged from the underbrush. Former captain Cho had learned from the Sensei at the Pirate Dojo of the treasure Sinbad had just dug up. How this Sensei had learned of it, no one knew. He was a man of many secrets. "Step away Sinbad," said Cho, "My argument is with my traitorous son, no one else." "It is you who are the traitor Father!" shouted Li. "You led our crew on meaningless missions with no profit! They needed stronger leadership and that wasn't to be found in you. I did what I had to." "And now I'm doing what I have to" replied Cho as he cocked his pistol. "Both of you stop!" shouted Sinbad. He had pulled two pistols of his own out and had one trained at each member of the Fang family. "Sinbad!" pleaded Li, "Forget what I was saying earlier. If we take care of my father, I'll make you a rich man. We can go our separate ways and be done with this whole affair!" Cho cut in and said, "I don't know what you've been through son, but I know if you've put up with Li for this long you must be made of stern stuff. Come with me and I'll make you second in command." Turning to Li, Sinbad said, "You said yourself, I can't be bought." And turning to Cho he said, "Sir, your son is right, you led the crew with a lack of will power. And I can't afford to be looking over my shoulder all the time, wondering if you are going to try to do me in like you're trying to do to your son." With that, Sinbad made his choice and pulled both triggers. The Fang family had made their choice and they died with their consequences. Sinbad had made his and would live with his own. But the important thing is that he lived.
  14. [MOC] Forbidden Island Revisited

    I thought it was time to revive something classical: Forbidden Island So I made my own - modernized and extended - version, based on the original base plate and including many original elements. And so this MOC brings us back to the days when water was plain blue and plane - and sand was yellow (there was no tan / dark tan). Monkeys were there, of course. ... and a pirate captain with his crew. Thanks for watching - C&C welcome!
  15. Pirates Battle Island

    Hi, LEGO Pirates fans. I’m Staslegomaster. I like your stories and creations. It seems you're big fans of LEGO, just as I am. That was why I decided to become a member of your community. Every time I create something, I wonder how other LEGO fans of different ages like it. I’d like to know your opinion on my creation. I tell adult fans, whose MOC-s I like, about my LEGO ideas project because to my mind, if an adult with a family, job and much to do, devotes his or her free time to LEGO, that means he/she likes it as much as I do. And he or she can share experience which kids can't. I've been collecting LEGO sets for more than 25 years now. Have a look at my Pirates Battle island in LEGO ideas project. I like classic pirates most of all. My project tells you their story. Hope, you'll like it. Please follow me and share your impressions on my set. Only when fans support each other, their projects can get 10 000 supporters! Do you know it has been the most popular series before Star Wars? Keep in touch!!! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/101720 - MOC Pirates Battle Island. Does it need any improvements? Those who like this MOC, please support it on LEGO ideas site. Then you can have it in your collection and play chess with your kids or friends if it gets 10 000 supporters. back view The chess board is removable, there is a pool with sharks and crocodiles under it. As the chess board can be removed, all the creation has great playability. Feel free to leave your comments on this MOC on LEGO ideas. Now you can clearly see all the participants of the chess battle. support this set in LEGO ideas and you will be able to decide who wins the battle!!! Sometimes fans' comments and official LEGO sets which look like a fan's set can show how to improve our projects.For example I'd change my chess boarg making it flat as in the official LEGO pirates chess 2015 because it will look better. I hope my chess set will become a winner by the next chess jubilee. Some fans say that it isn't convenient to play because of the towers in my chess set. But the board is movable and you can put them on any side. and they can be used as a prison for defeated mini figures.
  16. ...with only a gun & a small saber, unable to escape. And eventually, he starved & dehydrated to death! A very simple vignette using the 'island' baseplate!
  17. Island project: how to create water and reefs

    Hi everyone, I plan to make a big island, as realistic as possible, starting with a "volumetric" ocean (ie, higher than one plate). I've tried and look at different technics, but I can't find something beautiful. My idea was to have part of coral reefs with transparent tiles or plates or rounds above, but the result doesn't work. Any ideas or example? Thanks in advance!
  18. [MOC] Dracula's Vacation Island

    I've built this work for an exhibition hosted last year in Budapest by Kockajatek LUG and I also exhibited it in a Brickenburg LUG event in Constanta, at the Black Sea shore. The pictures were taken at those two events. It is a touristic island with an inn and a light tower built in romantic style and related to Dracula legend. In fact also the vampires should take a vacation from time to time More pictures could be seen here: https://www.flickr.c...th/24791708271/ Dracula 17 by Severus A, on Flickr Dracula 3 by Severus A, on Flickr Dracula 7 by Severus A, on Flickr Dracula 12 by Severus A, on Flickr
  19. Star Wars Episode VII- Looking for Luke The final scene of Star Wars Episode VII leaves the series open ended and full of promise. The Millennium Falcon lands on a mysterious island and Rey climbs the rocky slopes to discover Luke Skywalker in waiting. I sought to capture this scene via LEGO micro. Let me know what you think!

  20. Hey everyone It's been some time since my last upload here on EuroBrick. I finished this project around December, but only got around to taking pictures this week. This time, I decided to build an island that has never been explored, until now. As always, any feedback (both positive and negative) that are constructive are welcome. The Island build itself (Without the explorers). A closer look at the beach. The 2 bravest explorers make their way onto the island (1). The 2 bravest explorers make their way onto the island (2). Please excuse the sloppy masking, just installed Illustrator last night and I'm still getting used to it. Thanks for your time, ~Pat
  21. Pirate Hideout

  22. Snake island Treasure Quest

    Hi guys! Couldn't it be nice to make a set that depicted Snake island off the coast of Brazil. With a hidden treasure and pirates guarding it? Lets see your ideas!
  23. 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
