Remember how Bricky_Brick submitted a creation to LEGO Ideas and eventually it became Pirates of Barracuda Bay? (If you don’t you either need your memory checked or have a lot of homework to do). Well, Paokus Sanchez is a very talented AFOL, so it’s only natural he’d explore other facets of the LEGO Pirates theme, ships being a quintessential aspect.
Here we have the Imperial Guards (red coats) sailing a mighty battle ship… The Sword of the Seas… flying Soldier (blue coat) colours. Eh? What? That can’t be right. Ok, let’s look at the backstory for a possible explanation…
Messages have been received regarding a pirate bay. The royal message is clear and the governor wants his best ship for the expedition mission, “The Sword of the Seas”, the fastest ever seen so far. Some pirates call it that because it is able to split its bow on other ships and sink them in moments without the need of cannons. The powerful front structure repels any threat.
Ah, nope. No explanation as to why the Imperial Guards are flying the Soldier’s flag. So either they’re imposters or the builder has overlooked the correct insignia. Admiral Woodhouse must be furious! But it doesn’t matter, does it? You didn’t support this ship on LEGO Ideas, did you? Well guess, WHAT! It’s too late! The project has expired so here’s yet another glorious Pirate creation you’ll never get to own for yourself.
A ship with all its needs, watch post, barrels of food and water, cannons, rest rooms for the crew, captain’s cabin, cargo hold and command post among others, there is also a small dungeon.
Important note: The main intention is that the final model carries cloth sails and not Technic one. This would reduce the number by approximately 700 pieces in addition to the built in weight.
Thank you very much to everyone for being there supporting not only my project, but the projects of all those people who have made with love and affection to give it to all the followers of LEGO.
