2013 BrickBattle Games: Round 3 - Graham Gidman vs. Fraser Robinson
"Privateer Rampage"- Many kings and queens of England hired privateers to attack Spanish ships and settlements. They were little more than pirates but they were effective. Build a MOC of these fearsome men.
About this creation

My entry to Round 3 of the 2013 BrickBattle Games.

My opponent Fraser Robinson, and his amazing entry.

Having just read a book about the famous privateer, Sir Francis Drake, that when I saw my category, he immediately popped into my mind. Even though I had an idea, this was still one of the toughest categories I could of been given, because I have absolutely no pieces from that time period. Thought, somehow, it worked out, and very I am proud of it.

An overview of all three of the builds.

Yup, they separate.

The first build, a micro-scale scene of Francis's ship, The Golden Hind, and her sister ship, The Swan, landing on the Spanish coast.

A closeup of the two ships. I'm very happy with them!

On one on of his voyages, he and his crew encountered penguins on the South American coast, and they killed some to take aboard.

A dead penguin.





The other penguin, running for his life (literally).

And of course, I did him on his way to prepare for his voyage after receiving his commission.

The great Sir Francis Drake, himself.







The minifigures.

Thank you for viewing! Good luck, Fraser!

-Graham

Quoting Reynolds . I like all the scenes except for the nature one, the ground texture could use work. And the sidewalk is just too common. Also the penguins look like flying little birds. But I love the other mocs, especially the boats. Keep up the good work. 5/5
Thanks for the constructive criticism, I will try to improve my texturing in future builds, but I do have to say this, with the nature one, I was finishing it an hour and a half before the deadline, so I was very rushed, and that's why it doesn't feel totally complete.

This was extremely hard to decide. I like it that you went for a single privateer and had some historical content. but you opponent edged you out by just a bit. so he gets my vote.

Fantastic build. You put a great deal of thought into this and it shows. The micro builds of the ships look great. The scene where the hunting penguins is cool. The last scene where he gets his commission is completes it nicely. Excellent work and good luck in the contest.
