Pirate Double-Cross
An "Out of your Comfort Zone" contest entry. I am in the group "Tusk." My theme is "Pirates."
About this creation
Captain Turquin has sailed his pirate ship "Tusk" to a deserted island in hopes of recovering his buried treasure. Cap'n Turquin brings four members of his crew to cart away the riches: Bartleby, Abraham, Skarbor, and Winston. After careful calculation and furious digging, they unearth an oaken chest. The salty sea dog, Bartleby is the first to crack open the chest. As the shining gold spills out on the rough sand, a gleam of triumph and greed flits across Winston's face.

Turquin, Bartleby, Abraham and Skarbor found themselves looking down the barrels of a brace of pistols.

Winston's intentions were as clear as the blue sky above.

Winston: "I'll be a taking that gold mates."

"If'n ya don't mind."

As the men were weighing their predicament, Abraham noticed something out of place on the horizon..

Abraham: "The ship! The Tusk is leaving!"

Winston didn’t bother to look around.

Skarbor: “Aye, my good bucko, Jedediah, was in charge of liberatin the ship, whilst I took charge of the gold. So I’ll be taking the treasure, unless you all want to be marooned on this spit of land for the rest of your short lives.”

Turquin: “ Au contrair, I thought there might be some treachery amongst us. So I gave my young mate Hannibal the keys to the arms locker. You can bet that the ship is indeed, under my control.”

Winston: “Although that is all very intrestin’, I find ye both mistaken, as both my mates Jed and Hannibal were taking over the ship for me.”

Bartelby: “Say if you three all control the ‘Tusk,’ then why is she leaving?”

.......

Hannibal: “Don’t worry Jed, old salt, I am sure that there was no gold on that isle. The old man was delusional. Keep the helm steady there.”
Jedediah: “Aye Aye sir.”

Pirates!

For this contest, I wanted to build something recognizably piratical. At first I was going to build a raging battle between two ships with pirates in the rigging and cannons going off. After a quick assessment of both my ship building pieces and my skill, I decided against it. What scene says "Pirates" that doesn't involve massive ships or walking the plank? Why buried treasure! I had to throw in a little story as well. I hope you enjoyed it. Now I have some extra pictures for your viewing pleasure.


From left to right we have: Jeddediah, Hannibal, Turquin, Abraham, Bartelby, Skarbor and Winston.

Thanks for watching my entry in the "Out of your Comfort Zone contest". Go group Tusk!

Here is how I give you points: Photography: 5/5, no blurry photos, good background. Theme representation: 5/5 I can´t think anything that can better describe pirate behaviour. Overall Build: 8/10 Hmmm no much talking to this decision. So all my point are 18/20. Very good and I can say that this was one of best. Plus I must mention that I liked how you have put little story into it.

Quoting Quad ????? Those Bloody Pirates! Photography: 5/5. Your photography and background did just as it was supposed to, accentuate the build! Theme Representation: 5/5. What says 'Pirates' better than a 6-way double cross. :) Overall build: 8/10. I really liked the way you did the ground and water. But I could tell how much you were streching your brick limits of tan by your use of de-armed minifig torsos. :) Overall Score: 18/20. Good job!
Thanks for judging, Quad. I knew that my island was a little weak. When I started building, I quickly found out just how much of my tan was being used in other projects.

Also I must say I really liked your choice of minifigs for the Pirates. :)

Great story, beach and minifigs! I like the way you used minifig torsos to show rolls of sand where the boat beached. Good luck!

Another spectacular entry! The storyline and build are both great. It was funny with all the betrayal going on, and the forced perspective really worked for you. I also thought it was nice how you worked your group name into your entry.

Cool MOC with classical pirate story? Why not. This contest is getting better and better (don´t wannna say that first MOCs in contest were bad) and harder and harder for judges to decide.
