“The Treasure is at the Bottom” by Pantelis

Tuesday, October 27th, 2020 Photo of "The Treasure is at the Bottom" by Pantelis

With the release of the new Barracuda Bay we have seen a lot of takes on customizing the ship. Pantelis took another approach to customizing this nice set by building it a beautiful display base!

But wait there’s more! No only is this base beautiful it’s functional as it’s built on the IKEA boxes.  Be sure to check this one out out today!

Hi to all pirate mates..this days I buy the 3 new LEGO – Ikea boxes.. I think this boxes are very intresting and gives to me a lot of inspiration for build.

I look the big box and then i see my barracuda bay ship..and i say ok now i will make a base – display for this and put it to my desk..So this is the result I hope all mates enjoy and take some ideas with the use of LEGO – Ikea boxes!!!

Rock Raider shared their Quarantine Project of the frigate HMS Birch.  It’s a striking WIP thread with tons of pictures! So go check it out already!

This has been my Quarantine project for the past few months and, now that I’m going back to work full time, I probably won’t have much time to finish it soon. It’s getting close though so I thought I’d post it. Without further ado, my first frigate.

HMS BIRCH

EDIT: 1st Update

And the helm works! I’m pretty proud of the rope system that I was able to implement that works just like the real steering systems of the time.

On April 18th, 1775 the British Redcoats attempted to cross North Bridge on the outskirts of Concord.  Using nothing but LEGO, the highly skilled A_Goodman has recreated the battle which marked the first day of the American Revolution.

Alert the minutemen and check this one out in the LEGO Piraes Forum!

I figured as the Revolutionary War took place during the Age of Sail this was a good forum for this build.Based on the painting the build was inspired by I like to think that the early Spring trees experienced an extra rough New England Winter that year.

What type of ship is the Black Seas Barracuda?

“Intriguing Visitors” by Ayrlego

Wednesday, July 8th, 2020

As part of the recent challenge in BoBS, Ayrlego has posted a brilliant Caribbean feeling street scene.  The colors and figures are excellent as usual with his builds!

Come visit this street scene today!

Sterling Blackwood lent forward on the balcony overlooking the crowded docks and concentrated on an exchange going on below. Two somewhat shady figures were busy demonstrating the functions of what appeared to be a second-rate Eslandolan trade musket to a group of potential buyers. It was the buyers that aroused the interest of Blackwood. Alerted by a friend; Blackwood was investigating the three strange looking traders who were absorbed in the salesmen’s pitch. It was reported that they had appeared in the settlement a couple of days before. Seemingly flush with silver and speaking broken Corrish, the two men and one women wore a strange assortment of clothing which seemed to be of mixed Halosian and native origin. Although clearly not natives of Avestia, no one could seem to say where exactly they originated from. When pressed they became somewhat evasive and refereed to themselves as ‘the Tyree’De’ and describe their origin as being ‘to the south’. They appear to very interested; not in the trade trinkets that have seemed to fascinate the native peoples of the New World up to this point, but rather in Halosian manufactured goods and tools such as the musket on display.

This was not the first report Blackwood had heard of such encounters. Indeed it seemed that these people were turning up in Halosian settlements across the New Haven Seas. It was; however, the first time he had managed to witness them first hand. An idea was starting to form in his head… perhaps to the south of the immense island of Oleonda lay a civilisation somewhat more technologically advanced than those encountered so far. If this was the case, then surely the Royal Society of Navigation and Discovery and indeed the Crown of Corrington itself would be interested. Blackwood moved towards the streets. It was time to meet these ‘Tyree’De’ firsthand…

“It’s time for Battle” by Pantelis

Monday, June 29th, 2020 Photo of "Its time for Battle" by Pantelis

There has been a flood of Barracuda Bay MODs lately, however this one really caught my eye.  Pantelis included just enough details to keep the original origins even though this is pushing the limits of being a MOC.  The icing on the cake is the way it’s paired with some other brilliant builds to create some great scenes!

Don’t delay click here today!

“Late Renaissance Carrack” by SteamSewnEmpire

Saturday, May 23rd, 2020 Photo of "Late Renaissance Carrack” by SteamSewnEmpire

As I was scrolling through the pirate forum I came across a very rarely done ship style and it immediately caught my eye!

SteamSewnEmpire shared a wonderfully designed Carrack.  Even though the ship is only in LDD the render shows some great hull shaping and real promise.

But don’t  my just take my word for it, check it yourself!

Not 100% satisfied with the stern. A lot of carracks appeared to utilize a transom stern, but I’m not sure it conveys all that well in lego. I might fiddle with doing a rounded stern instead, which would likely be easier, even if it would push the era back a ways:

“Caribbean Post Office” by Ciamosław Ciamek (@Piglet)

Sunday, May 10th, 2020 Photo of "Caribbean Post Office" by Piglet

Recently we shared 𝗖𝗶𝗮𝗺𝗼𝘀ł𝗮𝘄 𝗖𝗶𝗮𝗺𝗲𝗸/@Piglet’s creation, a wonderful Caribbean outpost.  Not only does this warf have some excellent technique’s used, but there’s a ton of action packed into the MOC as well.

Come check it out!

The backstory…

Port Brickale wharf with a post office. This is where all correspondence from the area is collected and later sent by ship to destination ports. But sometimes you need to send to London some more significant pirates to have a trial there. One such shipment is Captain Roger, who is waiting for his journey in jail.

But maybe he will not have to leave the Caribbean, because a pirate raid is currently ongoing under the leadership of his friend – Calico Jack, assisted by Anne Bonny and Mary Read.

Not everyone has noticed the attack yet and for now, everyday life goes on unchanged – porters deliver mail sacks, customers are bringing their letters, traffic flows.
