Duel at Sea
About this creation

This is my second round entry to The Vignette Contest .

The category was "Past and Future Collide:
What happens when the past and future collide? Build a MOC that combines the past and the future (example: a flying castle)." I just now realized the size restriction was 16x16, not 12x12 like the first round! Oh well...

It was the year 1613, and Captain Brickbeard and his band of pirates still wreaked havoc across the seven seas. One fateful day, however, the Jolly Roger was rammed by a warship of the Imperial Navy. As the Imperials boarded his ship, Captain Brickbeard began dueling a young knight, Sir Arnold McShea (nephew of the legendary Harold McShea). The Captain vowed that no Imperial would take neither his ship nor his treasure. He was right; in less than an hour, the ship sank.

As the years went by, the tale of Brickbeard's final voyage still caused many to seek out the sunken treasure, but all were unsuccessful. By the year 2113, two separate expeditions were in full operation to recover the treasure, led by none other than descendants of Captain Brickbeard and Sir Arnold! Both crews arrived at the site the same day, and the fabled duel was about to be re-lived, only this time - underwater.

Not quite as elaborate a story as my first round entry , but hopefully you still enjoyed it. Thanks for viewing!

Quoting Halhi 141
Thanks for the comment, and thanks for doing the contest! It's not one of my favorite builds I've done, but considering I threw it together pretty quickly, it works. :) I agree, I'm not crazy about the two shades of tan, either. I only posted one picture because that's really the only angle that it looks good from; the back of the build and the sides of the ship are pretty rough looking... Thanks again!

Detail 18/20; I would have liked brick-built railings and a studless ship, but other than that it is very good. I actually think that it is a good thing that you made it 12x12 rather than 16x16 since this seems to be just the right size. I love how you filled all the space without making it look too busy. Creativity 9/10; Very nice idea. I like the use of the multi-layered scene; a great touch. Personal opinion 9/10; All of it looks great. I think that making the entire ship studless would have been nice, though, and it would be neat if you made brick-built railings.Color scheme 4.5/5; I really like the overall colors of it, but I don't really like the mix of tan and dark tan for the sand. Presentation 5/5; Though I'd like more photos, the one you have is very nice, and it does a good job of showing the entire model. Total: 45.5/50

Very nice, and good luck! I think you could have added a little to the MOC by adding a few 1x1 disks to the bottom of the top of the water, making it a little less even. Still, I like the concept and the clean build!

Quoting King's Ranger Captain That's pretty good, your seem to like doing mini mocs. You make good ones though. What about something big? :)
I do kind of like doing smaller builds, for a few reasons. They take less time to build and fewer bricks, and allow me to be very detailed. Plus, for contests like this one, you can only make them so big. :) That said, I wouldn't mind doing something bigger again. Who knows, maybe I'll have time to pull out all the stops (and bricks) for the Middle Earth LEGO Olympics!
