Fate of Bullet by Diidy

LEGO Pirate Fate of Bullet MOC Diidy

So THAT's were I left it!! It's always in the last place you look!

Yesterday we saw Diidy's conquistadors launch a cannonball, but where did that "bullet" land?  Once again, the details are so spot on, you might miss them if you aren't looking carefully.  Did you notice the flaming palm tree, the transition from sand to stone, the awesome dwelling with the cannon ball lodged inside, and the great minifigures?  Get a few more great shots of this MOC by visiting the forum now!

Reload the cannon, then discuss Fate of Bullet in the forum.

LEGO Pirate Sound of War MOC Diidy

Ready... Aim... FIRE!!!

It's all about the details.  Eurobricks member Diidy brings a nice little vignette that has such great, natural details you might not even notice them all.  Don't miss the dark tan "ruts" behind the cannon, the tires used for the cannon barrel,  the bird hiding in the bushes and the great greenery.  If only we knew were that cannon ball landed...

LEGO Pirate Kraken Attack MOC Ecclesiastes

"It's a mythological creature, I can calls it what I wants!"

How many Krakens can this site possibly post?  We will never reach our limit if they look as good as this Kraken made by Eurobricks member Ecclesiastes.  Ecclesiastes' Kraken decides it has had enough ship demolition for the day and decides to take the fight to the soldiers' home.  The obvious highlight here is the Kraken made mostly out of castle helmets, but don't overlook the cannon made from the helmets either!

Kraken proof your ships, then discuss Kraken Attack by Ecclesiastes in the forum.

LEGO Pirate Sea has Spoken MOC gearcs

Favorite feature of this MOC? Bet you can't name just one!

MOC legend and Flickr member gearcs ventures into the world of pirates with this creation of a small ship sailing through a debris field.  Though small, this MOC is packed with details and everyone of them is brick built.  Check out the brick built hull, brick built anchor, brick built cannons, brick built sails, brick built turtle, brick built ship's wheel... Oh, and the ship is cool too.

Ketch North Carolina by Corioso

LEGO Pirate Ketch North Carolina MOC Corioso

This ketch is 'da bomb'!

A ketch is a two masted vessel with a large mizzen mast that is set forward of the rudder post.  Ketch style ships served as the design bed for bombardment or simply "bomb" vessels that had large forward mounted mortars used to shell enemy coastlines.  Eurobrick's member Corioso breaks from the typical frigate or ship of the line design to show us his bomb ketch.  In addition to the diversity this ketch provides, Corioso's ship also has a great shape, tiled decks, and a pleasing color scheme.  Be sure to check out all the photos to "ketch" a shot of the mortar mounted on the front of the ship!

Run for cover and discuss Ketch North Carolina in the forum.

Fort Outworks by Skipper

LEGO Pirate Fort Outworks by Skipper

Skipper did the homework, read the tutorial and you will know this is a hornwork

Eurobrick's member Skipper follows up on Horry's excellent Fortifications of the Sailing Age tutorial with a lesson on the outworks of a fortress.  Skipper explains that outworks are defenses constructed beyond the main fort to protect the fort from enemy field batteries, increase general firepower, fortify a weak area, or simply extend control of the area.  Skipper did an excellent job of including links to real world examples of the outworks covered in the tutorial even though his LEGO representations of each are spot on.  Use this tutorial in conjunction with Horry's to build the most epic fortress ever seen on Classic-Pirates!

Discuss Fort Outworks in the forum.

LEGO Pirate Fortifications of the Sailing Age by Horry

Learning is good, learning in LEGO is better!

The Age of Sail brought forth more than just advancements in sailing and gunpowder, but also in fortifications.  Classic-Pirates own Horry delivers an excellent tutorial on the evolution of fortifications from the Medieval Period to the Age of Sail.  Horry's three part history lesson (complete with pictures) will get you thinking about how to create that perfect Imperial Guard fortress you have been itching to build.  Check out the tutorial, then start designing your perfect citadel and casemates now!

Forgotten Outpost by Trevor Van Aalst

LEGO Pirate MOC Forgotten Outpost by Trevor Van Aalst

The outpost may have been forgotten, but the MOC certainly hasn't!

Check out this great creation from Flickr member Trevor Van Aalst!  Unlike some of the bustling MOCs we have seen lately, Trevor made this MOC convey a feeling of abandonment yet he did not skimp on the details to do so.  Notice the custom palm tree, brick-built tattered sail, perfectly lifeless minifigures and the beginning signs of decay in the nicely built round tower.  Subtly is harder to achieve than chaos, so let's give three cheers to Trevor for pulling it off so flawlessly.

Discuss and give three cheers for Forgotten Outpost in the forum.
