Eurobricks member Lego_Warlord_8 has been working on this brilliant entry in the medium division. The Grand Escape is full of action and nice minifigure posings. It looks like some pirates have just escaped from prison, and they are now rowing to sea and freedom! But first they should get rid of the chasing Imperial Guards! Will the pirates escape or will they end hanging on the gallows anyway?

In times of peace in the Caribbean, trade among everyone boomed without the threat of a pirate attack. Smaller ships such as this one where specifically for that purpose. With small crews and little to no defense they would stand no chance against pirate attacks, but in peaceful times they could be counted on to trade up and down the coasts.
In the early morning, at a port allied with the Imperial Fleet, mischief is at hard work. Knowing that the Captain Stelivus doesn't take well to stories of abnormal activities from abroad, one of the cabin boys, Peter, decided to make good of a poor situation for the captain. Stelivus had spent the previous evening at a feast for the local governor and came back to his room late, refusing to let any wine go to waste. Peter had planned for such a perfect set up for some time with one of the sailors, Jack.
Jack and Peter fashioned a so called "UFO" from some scrap steel, some ingenuity, and some precious stones they'd found.

Having mor free time during the peace, pirates started upgrading their seafaring technologies. A simple accident, which happened to the crew of one small boat opened the door for massife use of bio traction power instead of obsolete oars and sails.

Now that the pirates have time to relax, they have had to create their own excitement. Captain Brickbeard heard of this annual event, and had adopted it to fit the pirates needs. Cheese rolling has become the new horse racing of Pirate Cove. The captains watch and bet while their cabin boys race down the hill after the cheese.
Now hurry to the forum to discuss Cheese Rolling by Shmails, and get the cheese!
It was Oct 31st, Halloween day, and the towns folk were all going about there business when the town crier came running, he did look like he had just seen a ghost . "Peace has been declared!!! Ze war is over, Ze war is over" he yelled.
Being that the war ended on Halloween day, well let's just say that that's not a good thing, anyhow when the work day ended, the crew at Classic Pirates.com decided to have a little harmless fun to celebrate!
Be there to discuss the Celebration of peace by Ratshot in the forum, before the party is over!
After the war was over, soldiers were permitted to visit the home front again. Their family is happy again to see their son or father returning safe and sound! Eurobricks member Nate really captures the feel of this all in his wonderful Pillage the Village 2 Medium entry.
