From LEGO Ideas...

Prepare the cannons sailors,  you have to defend the bay!
Welcome to the impregnable pirate fortress, house of Red beard, many sailors fear these waters, the most dangerous pirates make their stop here. Be careful not to be locked in jail or possibly the only place you can be, as long as you do not find the secret exit.

There is a rumor, they say that there is a treasure map, it is believed that it is below the canteen, many of them are looking for the treasure but none of them have yet achieved it. Will you be able to find it?

It is time to return to the classics and what better than this super bastion built on shipwrecks, with traps like the pendular anchor that warns unexpected visitors and the dog and the monkey guardian. The food is delicious in our tavern, many pirates only stop to eat here. In this small pirate town we find a small farm with pigs and chickens, lobsters crabs and fish, also delight this area.

A Modular set that includes 7 minifigures and:
1 monkey, 1 scorpion, 3 crabs, 3 hens, two pigs, 3 parrots, a shark and a dog.

I hope you like this model very much, I felt, very comfortable designing it, it was a return to the classics;)

Thank you very much pirates!

Skull Cove: RedBeard’s Return LEGO Ideas Project

Sunday, November 2nd, 2014

The help support the exciting Skull Cove: RedBeard’s Return LEGO Ideas project and when you're done discuss it in the
LEGO Pirates Forum!

This project has already received over 1,100 votes in less than 5 days!

 

 

Captain Roger Redbeard once terrified the seas with his crew aboard the The Black Seas Barracuda but he has not been seen on the high seas for over a decade.  Nobody knows exactly what happened to him, many assumed he finally met a bitter end, perhaps finally caught by the Imperials...some claim he retired and lives quietly on his untold riches.

His closest friends and allies however know the truth.

Redbeard, surrounded by his loyal crew, still rules the great pirate fleet, a shadow empire, from the security of his stronghold, Skull Cove.

This set seeks to create a top of the line pirate stronghold operated by a cadre of pirates inspired by classic LEGO pirates.

The re-imagined pirates includes the classic figures: Captain Roger Redbeard, Rummy, Anne, and “Steve.”

The Crew

Captain Rodger Redbeard

In the passing years the Captain's beard has grown and streaks of white have crept into it.  He may not be as spry as he once was, but he is as cunning and quick witted as ever, coordinating strikes against the merchant lanes while continuing to foil the Imperials. Skull Cove: ReadBeards' Return

Anne

Anne has served as Redbeards Quartermaster, leading countless boarding actions upon ships beset by the Black Seas Barracuda.  She is an expert marksman and sword fighter, equally at home on the deck or in the ropes.

Skull Cove: ReadBeards' Return

First Mate Rummy

Rummy has long been Redbeard's right hand man.  Now he operates the ingenious communication network that keeps Redbeard's pirate armada working in concert.

Rummy is also a legendary spotter and look out.  He can count the number of cannons on a ship before most of the crew can even see its sails.

Skull Cove: ReadBeards' Return - Rummy

"Steve"

Steve is a bit of a mysterious wild card, coming and going as he pleases. The crew is not even certain if "Steve" is his real name.

His unequaled skill as an artillerist however has earned him a permanent opening as the master gunner in Redbeard's ranks.  On many occasions the astounding accuracy of his cannons has spelled the difference between victory and defeat.
