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!

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.

LEGO Pirate Take all you can MOC Peter deYeule

You can almost hear the pirate captain screaming, "Take all you can!!!"

This isn't the first time our news scouts have stumbled across a nice MOC by Flickr member Peter deYeule and it almost certainly will not be the last.  This time Peter gives us an action scene of a pirate raid on a New England town.  According to the creator himself, the pirates seek all the food, gold, beer, water and prisoners they can take.  There is a lot of fine detail in this MOC, from the SNOT water to the tiled animal barn to the flames on the villagers' roofs.  Head to the forum for a link to even more pictures of this creation now!

LEGO Pirate Grand Armee Customization by DucadiYork

Napoleon's army never looked so sharp! has been blessed with its fair share of excellent Napoleonic War customizers and Eurobricks newcomer DucadiYork shows he should be counted among them.  The Italian customizer is molding his own weapons and articles of clothing as well as modifying LEGO elements including helmets and saddles to outfit his "Grand Armèe".  This project looks like a massive undertaking and though it has just begun, DucadiYork has already produced several finished figures.  This looks like a thread to watch, so get to the forum and bookmark it now!

LEGO Pirates in 2012?

Thursday, December 8th, 2011
Lego Pirate 2012

Is this the final LEGO Pirate set ever?

First we debated, "LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean, was it true?"  Then we all pondered aloud, "Would that theme be any good?"  Then we asked, "Are we excited?"  And finally we question, "How will Pirates of the Caribbean compare to the 'classic pirates' theme?!"

Now the debate has turned again.  One has to wonder, "Will we see ANY LEGO pirate sets, whether they be in the Caribbean or not, in 2012?"  Voice your opinions, thoughts and rampant speculations now!

LEGO Pirate MOC The Robbery by Corioso

Perfect blend of chaos and craftsmanship!

Eurobricks member Corioso perfectly blends the fleshy figures from LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean, LEGO Harry Potter and LEGO Prince of Persia into this superb MOC.  The figures are not the only highlight here as Corioso also built interior spaces in all the buildings and provides many well taken photos of the whole creation to let a story unfold.

LEGO Pirate MOC Mayan Temple by Basiliscus

And now for something completely different.

Eurobrick's member Basiliscus shows us something we do not see very often, a colorful Mayan MOC.  Basiliscus says the MOC was built to go along with the red and tan geometrical pattern featured on its floor.  The geometrical pattern is not the only thing that makes this MOC great.  I love the minifigures' inventive tribal dress (especially the black and red priest), the statues on the temple and docking area and the brick-built canoe.

LEGO Pirate MOC Imperial Trading Post Redux by Peter deYeule

Imperial Trading Post Redux... Redux...

This is not just another Jolly Roger Contest entry, this is a beautiful re-imagining of a classic pirate set.  Peter deYeule's version of the classic set really does feel like a place where merchants bring their wares.  The highlights of Peter's version include a light house on the tiled docks, two well built cranes and a great, updated trading ship.

LEGO Pirate MOC Piazza by Hardegon

Beautiful detailing make this pirate town come to life!

Piazza is alive!  Not only has Flickr member Hardegon done a great job with the larger aspects of this MOC, like the houses and great tiling work on the streets, but also with all the small details, like a fountain, street light, medieval statue and all the merchants peddling their wares.  The details are certainly the best aspect of any MOC and these details make this town pop.

LEGO Pirate Golden Hinde MOC by t-brick

LEGO elements are even used for the rigging!

Sir Francis Drake’s Golden Hinde is famous for circumnavigating the globe.  Brickshelf member t-brick brings us a new interpretation on Drake’s flagship with this wholly brick-built beauty.  All the detail seems just right, from the perfect English galleon shape to the gorgeous color scheme.
