Fort Cliff by Puriri

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Hopefully those soldiers don't have fear of heights!

Classic-Pirates member Puriri has posted one of his MOC's for the first time. It was such a good creation that he made it to the frontpage straightaway! He has made a very high cliff and a great stairway leading to the fort on top of it. It's almost impossible for any enemy soldiers to occupy Fort Cliff. Creator Puriri isn't completely satisfied by the name of it, so any suggestion is welcome.

Do you have a suggestion for the name of his fort, or do you want to see the magnificent stairs?

Then head over to the forum and see Fort Cliff by Puriri for yourself!

EB member L-space brings us his 2010 Community Build entry, A poor house/charity building were people in need of cloths, food, water and tax relief can find refuge from the pressures of the world.

L-space certainly included lots of unique little details such as a basement entrance, a gang of poor people and a nifty looking chimney.

Bakery by Admiral Croissant

Bakery, or a croissant shop by Admiral Croissant - part of Classic-Pirates.com community build

Fresh croissants anyone?

As part of Classic-Pirates.com community build, Admiral Croissant has shown us his neatly looking bakery, or, to be more precise, a croissant shop.

Complete with a cellar and a ground floor as well as stairs and a sloped roof, this land-based MOC makes a fine example of a civilian building that still fits well into the pirate era. A concept that LEGO has sadly spared us in the official Pirate sets (perhaps with a partial exception of 6277 Imperial Trading Post). Fortunately we have MOCers like Admiral Croissant who are more than willing to make it up to us.

HMS Praetorian by Dread Pirate Wesley

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

A fast frigate is entering the waters!

Dread Pirate Wesley wanted a model ship with life/a crew on it. So he created something with Lego. It turned out to be a fantastic ship MOC! It's a big 5th rate ship with 32 guns! It's also very detailed, with an interior and a big crew. He did a very great job on his first Lego ship. HMS Praetorian is both beautiful and very strong.

WIP Privateer by Strategos

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

Ready to set sail soon!

Inspired by the novels of Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin, Strategos was inspired to build a ship in MLCAD! And it is a nice job already! The privateer has magnificient shapes and details, and her stern is beautiful! She is nearing her completion, and perhaps she will be built in real LEGO bricks after all...

Make sure to check out WIP Privateer by Strategos in the forum!

The Press Gang at work!

The Governor needs new sailors. He therefore decided to launch a major recruitment operation! Eurobricks member 74Louloute has been working on an awesome creation, based on historical facts. He makes it very clear why the press gang is called 'PRESS gang'. Being pressed into the crew! His creation is both funny and ingenious!

Welcome in Davy Jones' Locker!

Welcome in Davy Jones' Locker!

He tied a cannon to Bootstrap's bootstraps, and the last we saw of ol' Bill Turner, he was sinkin' into the crushing black oblivion of Davy Jones' Locker... 

Eurobricks MOC expert SlyOwl did it again! A neat scene of Davy Jones' Locker, crammed with detail and great use of parts! You feel even more sorry for poor Bootstrap after you've seen this piece of art!
