The Pillage The Village contest has become such a tremendous success that Lord Admiral Phes has decided to give it its own Subforum!
Everything that has to do with the PTV contest can be found here from now on!
The previous titles and descriptions of the entry threads were a complete menagerie and it was looking very disorderly. Therefore Mister Phes painstakingly retitled and described all the entry threads on the first page using the same convention. He will do so for the entry threads on the other pages as well as they get bumped.
Mister Phes also made clear the rules about how the new PTV contest entry threads should be titled:
- The thread title should be the title of the MOC, you may include "WIP" or "FINAL" but nothing else.
- The thread description (the one beneath the title) should contain "Pillage the Village Contest - " then either "Large" , "Medium" or "Small" depending on the division.

Look what we've found - a MISB Skulls Eye Schooner on eBay!
MISB 6286 Skulls Eye Schooner
MISB Skulls Eye Schooners are quite rare now and tend to fetch quite high prices on eBay, sometimes exceeding the US$500 mark. They could be considered even rarer than the equally popular 6285 Black Seas Barracuda, which enjoyed a Legend re-release back in 2002.
If you have a high disposable income check out the eBay auction page or visit our Mint In Seal Box Madness thread where you'll find dozens of Mint In Sealed Box Pirate LEGO sets waiting to be purchased!

Pirates over the ages have loved to steal treasure. They also enjoyed collecting trophies, in particular the hat of the ship or military port they were raiding.
Pirates loved to collect trophies
Capt. Kirk rebuilt his first pirate MOC, The Captain's Tricorner. Some pirates are trying to get away with the Captain's hat but they will have to make it through the guards first. Once back safely on their ship they can happily gloat and show off their new prize.
