LDD Imperial Trading Post Remix

Ever thought, "LEGO Digital Designer is great for trains, but for pirates, it's terrible"? Well now, Cpt. Pegleg Blockbeard has proved you wrong with his new MOC, the Imperial Trading Post Remix - LDD Style. It is a great MOC, utilising clever techniques and ideas into creating an Imperial Trading Post inspired merchant port. You need to see this one properly to fully grasp its complete creativity!

Head over to Eurobricks to take a look at this Classic Set, revisited.

The HMS Active

Oh no! It's the British! Not too long ago, our relatively new member, Daniel G, rolled out a fantastic MOC of a British 30-gun 2-deck frigate named the HMS Active. But wait! There's more... Daniel has recently modified this ship - for the better! You'll definitely want to check this one out!

See the original ship then take a look at the new version.

Let's thank him!

ImperialShadows

A while ago our good member ImperialShadows decided it was time someone took control of the Classic-Pirates.com newsletter and volunteered to become its editor. So now, it's time to praise him for all the hard work he has put into bringing us that wonderful publication every month!

Congratulate ImperialShadows here.

Update: Since this story was originally posted, the newsletter program has been discontinued, replaced by the blog you are now reading. ImperialShadows, however, has continued his news duties in the form of posting here and carrying over the graphics for the blog itself from the former site.

The Rum Trade

"It is a vile drink that turns even the most respectable men into complete scoundrels!"

The Rum Trade

So says Elizabeth Swann. Yet every pirate needs his heavenly elixir, so what better way to get it than through I Scream Clone's Rum Trade? Great landscaping, waves and a crow's nest top it all off, but rum remains - and always will - at the heart of a pirate's life!

Vile or delicious? You decide!
