The Secret Of Castle Rock Cove! by Derfel Cardarn

what are those pirates using the cove for?

Yes, Derfel Cardarn has reached the frontpage...again! He produces MOC's in a very high velocity and with a lot of skills. This time, he wanted to make a peaceful scene. At least, that's what it seems, because there's a lot going on beneath the surface! A pirate clan has made his headquarters inside a secret cave and now it's filled with treasure! If you're a big fan of Lego, you just can't miss this MOC!

Eurobricks member Derfel Cardarn strikes again! This time he has been working on this church! With some great building and landscaping techniques he managed to surprise us once again.

Watch out for the Blowgunners!

Exotrator surprises us with his nice comeback, making a Spanish Colonial Outpost! There are a lot of cool aspects in his creation, the landscaping looks great and there is an interesting Carib blowgunner in there as well.

Make sure you check Exotrator's Colonial Outpost out before the Carib blowgunners capture the outpost!

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.

The Battle of New Orleans by Hound Knight on Classic-Pirates.com

In 1814 Hound Knight took a little trip,
Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip'.
They took a little bacon and they took a little beans,
Then Hound Knight made a model of the Battle of New Orleans.

They fired their guns and the British kept a'comin.
There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago.
We fired once more and they began to runnin' on
Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico!

Come to the Pirates forum to see Hound Knight's Battle of New Orleans!

One, two, three, four...right turn!

This picture clearly shows the potential of LCAD, that has nearly infinite parts (in contrast to LDD). RoVer promised to continue the work on this WIP/MOC as soon as he graduates from University!

Come on over to the Classic Pirates forum to discuss this magnificent LCAD MOC.
