  2. The light house of Skull Rock was once kept lit by a order of monks, who believed the nearby skull-shaped cliff face (carved by the former native islander inhabitants) was a sign from "The Man Upstairs" that is was an evil place. The monks were later killed off in 1708 by scurvy and other diseases, leaving only one alive who went insane from the ordeal, claiming he saw ghosts of several past wrecked ships' captains. In 1710, the pirate Captain Henry Smithfield of the infamous "Yago" found skull island and skillfully managed to sail through the island coral reefs unaided except by the light and a keen sailor's intuition. He was inspired to take over operation of the light, but eventually had to maroon the mad monk on a nearby deserted island as he was too crazy even for pirates! The light is still lit only occasionally, mostly when trying to wreck merchant and pirate hunter ships onto the reefs to be plundered thereon. This island is known to the area's native islanders as Hazar-dues, or to it's pirate inhabitants and imperial captives as Skull Rock. NOTE: The name of the island is said like the word, "Hazardous" (which is quite apt for it's windswept rocky surface!) I'm taking @Faladrin lead with his similar model and one-upping it to include the entire skull rock, and a dock for pirate ships of all types! NOTES: The set conversion is mostly (98%) finished as of 1/28/21. The as-yet unbuilt lighthouse portion is on order from Bricklink as of yesterday. This new piece will replace the crane section of the dock. I've also realized that all the set 71722's features are tied together by gearing / rods, such as: - The rotating scythes on the walkway to the officer's quarters behind the eyes. - the moving "wave" walkway to the base of the waterfall. (which opens up!) - the lowering / raising of the wooden cage holding the (deceased) bluecoat Admiral. ..and all this is activated by cranking the large U-shaped handle on the left! The front clips of sets 71722 (Skull Sorcerer's Dungeons) connect to a wooden dock model (seen below). The two Ninjago set's (the other is 71717, Journey to the Skull Dungeons) will be modified to have blue parts instead of orange and trans-orange for the bases and "lava drip" parts. I plan on using these sets, plus this dock, in conjunction with my other pirate ships, seen below. Inside the lower portion of Skull rock is the pirates treasure room, with gold aplenty and a few jewels. The upper floor is for the Captain Smithfield when not at sea. Here is the lighthouse proper. The wooden crane is for offloading cargo / loot off the smaller boats after leaving the big pirate ship. The spinning lens idea is from 70431 (Lighthouse of Darkness) from the Hidden Side theme. The front clips of sets 71722 (Skull Sorcerer's Dungeons) connect to a wooden dock model. (seen farther down the page) The two Ninjago set's (the other is 71717, Journey to the Skull Dungeons) are currently being modified to have blue parts instead of orange and trans-orange for the bases and "lava drip" parts. I plan on using these sets, plus all the custom dock / lighthouse parts for my island. This building model comes apart into three modular sections: - lighthouse, lower level (this is sleeping / storage area for the crew when not at sea.) - light house, upper level (storage area for whale oil for keeping the light lit) - actual light - (rotates around, though it's usually lit for use in misguiding ships onto the nearby rocky coral reef surrounding Skull Island.) The docks model also comes apart into three modular sections: - The working wooden crane (left side, which will be implemented into the lighthouse) - The corner with cannon (behind the others) - The dock extension (right side) Here is that unlucky monk today, with his one-shot pistol on Twenty-paces Island. (I'm getting a palm tree for this island.... still have to order the parts!) The whole setup of Skull Rock so far. The Minecraft-based Seacow, as captained by Peg-Leg Stevie. Not sure what to call this type of ship, though it kinda reminds me of the Santa Maria from Columbus' first trip. The brig Yago, as seen here and captained by Henry Smithfield. The Golden Bounty pirate junk, as seen in this topic and led by Captain Soto. (picture of Joly Roger goes here) Captain Hook's Jolly Roger isn't done yet, so no picture or topic... waiting on a certain flying boy for that. The Silver Crab is not built yet, but is captained by Bob "The Sponge" Squarepants and can be found here. This is the Hell Bent, and is led by Captain Victor "Jawbone" Blucher. It can be found here.
  3. 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?

    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 32Γ—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

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.
