“La Torre Olvidada” by Ultimo

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014 Photo of "La Torre Olvidada" by Ultimo

“Old forgotten guard tower, known as La Torre Olvidada is located somewhere in the Caribbean. For a long period it has belonged to the Spanish armada. After a long siege it has been abandoned, and some years after the Capt. Cristóbal and his men found their hideout there. When they aren’t busy drinking rum, they take off from there to steal the gold, using the island as the storage for their loot.”

“Hello everyone at Classic Pirates, I would like to present my new MOC, as you can see from the following images, it is a pirates island.”

Hello,

I don’t build Pirates models often but before the end of summer I needed to make one… I’m sure you know that kind of feeling. So here’s my little Spanish fort on a small island, cute and calm until the pirates land.

“6246-X Return to the Crocodile Cage” by Dubbadgrim

Monday, September 22nd, 2014 Photo of "6246-X Return to the Crocodile Cage" by Dubbadgrim

Dubbadgrim has made a stunning creation loosely based on the classic Pirates set 6246 Crocodile Cage.  Besides making it more realistic and larger, many play features were added, like a bone lever and access to the cage.

Dubbadgrim writes:

A (loose) remake of classic set 6246. Includes a working bone lever to open the cage and a cross section of the cage and its prisoners.

I think most of us loved the old set, so I thought I would do a realistic version of it. This meant making it a lot bigger and reorganizing some of the features

“Battle for the Fountain of Youth” by Simon S

Thursday, August 21st, 2014 Photo of "Battle for the Fountain of Youth by Simon S"

Ponce de Leon gone crazy, y’all!  Behold this epic battle between LEGO Pirates and the Imperial Armada (gold standard upgraded edition) for the fabled Fountain of Youth.  Because what better way than to live forever than have a bloody battle?  Sure you may die trying to take control of the fountain, but if you’re fortunate enough to get a sip of that water, you’ll at least leave a youthful corpse behind.  Or does the fountain resurrect too?  Hey, wouldn’t be unfortunate if you drowned in the Fountain of Youth?

Even though Simon_S is primarily a LEGO Castle builder, he decided to try his hand at Pirates and built this wonderful scene.  Great part usage along with  building techniques make this a great creation.

Stop by the LEGO Pirates forum and comment on Battle of the Fountain of Youth!

Simon S Writes:

Hey guys

I’m mostly a Castle builder and I’m very active in the Guilds of Historica forum too. However, the Jolly Roger Contest 3.5 over at forbiddencove.com inspired me to finally jump into the pirate theme. I have done a build before, for the team building contest (with Soccerkid), but it was a fort and so completely different from this.

Here I present you: Battle for the Fountain of Youth

“The Battle of St. Lucia” by Mark of Falworth

Sunday, August 10th, 2014 Photo of "The Battle of St. Lucia" by Mark of Falworth

Mark of Falworth has created another masterpiece!  Stunning brickwork, amazing details, and great minifig action bring this creation to life.  It really showcases Marks ability to create spectacular landscapes rich in texture, color, and interesting building techniques.  Truly a work of art by a great artist!

Stop by the LEGO Pirates Forum and tell your thoughts on The Battle of St. Lucia!


Mark Writes:

A map discovered on board the “Soldat de Fortune” depicted the mythical treasure of Blue was hidden beneath the doorstep of the church of St. Lucia. Being eager to take this golden opportunity, Mark of Tortuga and his fearless crew descended upon the sleepy island colony.

Though the village was usually a quiet, out-of-the-way spot, a garrison of a dozen well-armed Bluecoat militia was waiting for them!

Undeterred by the resistance, the pirates charged wildly at the terrified Bluecoats and began to pummel them into submission. Just as a piratical victory against the cowardly foe seemed certain, lo-and-behold a cannon shot roared to the left of the combatants!

The bold and brave Redcoats rushed towards the fray with muskets blazing!

Who will come out victorious in the Battle of St. Lucia?
