Heave Ho!

Down in the Redcoats mine resides a team of hard working miners. Every now and then the Red Coats on duty have to haul up the minerals dug out by their workers and get them sent off the the governor. However most of the time they are just slacking and lazing around above the toiling mine shaft. And what's this? A skeleton of a Spaniard!How did he get down there?

40 canons of crushing

No matter how awesome this ship maybe the inspiration came from somewhere. In this instance it was out very own Classic-Pirates.com. Member Captain Green Hair also know as CGH recently created a wonderful tutorial showcasing the process of building a master class ship. It was a derivation of this tutorial that inspired Ingmar to create this marvellous vessel.

Click here to discuss Malborghet a Vignette based on a painting by Woody64 in the Classic-Pirates.com forums

Woody64 has created for us this vignette based off the respective painting. Not only is this accurate top to bottom to the original painting piece of work but also historically, so all you history fans will be pleased. This was also a great opportunity for Woody to show off some of his excellent moulded minifig accessories such has the hats some of the troops are wearing. Woody has also gone to the effort of producing custom torso decals for his men providing a source of inspiration for all the customizers out there. It seems like this vignette has something for everyone!

Shipwreck Island by Matn

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

Many months ago an Imperial Governor was captured aboard a Pirate vessel. Soon after the Pirates got caught up in a terrible storm and were shipwrecked upon a desert island along with the captive governor. After running out of provisions from the Captains cabin the wrecked crew are waiting for rescue on a diet of bananas and fish.

I caught a fish!

The new MOC from Matn, Shipwreck Island, mixes many different techniques and ideas in to a well designed MOC. It has the right amount of Island, Sea and other scenic elements like the wrecked ship's cabin. Also adding the authentic looking tent created by using the ship's sail was a nice and well pulled off idea.

Pirates Rock a MOC by Rupi

Friday, October 2nd, 2009

Standing at least a hundred feet tall in the midst of the great ocean is Pirates Rock. A sort of mix between a  sacrificial and execution platform for pirates, scum and the like. This time a scurvy band of Pirates have captured a poor Redcoat. After stealing his treasure they have become bored and are throwing him into the snapping jaws of the hungry shark below.

Snap!

Snap!

Rupi, a well renowned vignette builder has produced this latest MOC. It features a tall stack, the perfect location for a Pirate hideout. One of the most interesting features of the MOC is that at the top the brick structure turns on it's side allowing for the jutting edge where you can see the Redcoat being pushed off. The Shark's splash adds extra energy into the scene. Sacrificial platform or just somewhere to feed the sharks? Say what you think in the forum.
