My first real Lego MOC. For centuries the pirates and imperial soldiers have been at war. During an economic meltdown the soldiers soon realise that they need gold to help survive the times, on a limb they team with the pirates to help find the next lot of hidden booty. Once a pirate though, always a pirate - and these pirates are very good at their deceptive game.
About this creation
A bird-eye view of the waterfront complex.
A high angled view of the back. Shows the small marketplace.
A high angled view of the front.
A closer view of the marketplace.
A closer view of the front.
An old grumpy pirate guards the on-site brewery.
During the truce rivalry is settled in more civilized manners like a shooting range.
Some classic sword dueling!
Both pirate and imperial leaders study the maps leading to the next dig spot. A monkey gets its hands on a jug of beer.
How about a booty-full discussion over a meal of fish and beers? Outdoor area complete with a BBQ!
No pirate maidens insight? No. Thats because they always come second to treasure!
The swords are sharp and the muskets are fine at the armoury.
i know ive seen this long time ago, but for some reason i didnt comment..... hehe. how many of the lego pirates forts did you buy to make this one? i once bought 2 of em and turned em in to one fort, but if i should guess at how many you did use i would say just around 5 or 6,
am i correct? but besides that, this is an really awesome build, i really like it, but again, if you need a good fort, then you need alot of bricks, and alot of space, hehe. nice job.
I like the concept and scope of this creation. Although, in my humble opinion, it could use some color change, perhaps some red flooring instead of blue. Also you might consider some outer towers or higher walls. Just a thought. Overall I like how big and spread out it is. These kinds of creations are tons of fun to play with. Nice build.
Cool... your first real MOC. Nice touch with those crocodiles. I'm not sure I like the architectural style on this, though... it doesn't really keep with the forts of that time period, although the buildings are well-built.
Quoting Leda Kat
Wow! A huge and really skilful build! I am envious of all the white pieces! A colour I am seriously lacking in. I really like the design of the building with all the windows it looks fantastic.
Thanks Leda. Lol @ the white pieces, your lacking in them, they are all i really have. I bought 6 of the Pirate Port set, now I have an overabundance of similar pieces with no range of pieces. I have contacts in the toy shop industry who can get me these sets for NZ$50ea, think they have about 30 of them remaining.
