Piglet

Fort Royal

22 posts in this topic

Hello.

This is my second MOC for the JRC.

I would like to present: Fort Royal

4394685738_2436d02ed8.jpg

Royal fort in the Caribbean

Fort with an observation tower, a small haven with a lift, armed with cannons.

I was inspired by the hole in a wall made by Evildead:

but I used the 'valentine's technique' for the brick:

and tried to make a little thinner plaster.

This work was also inpired by Kris Kelvins Eldorado Fortress 2009:

What a great creation Piglet!

The colours are nice, and the brickwork is really nice. Great work on the cliff as well.

This is one of the best Imperial forts I have seen in Lego. I really like white/tan/dark-red color scheme. The battle damage to the walls is really well done and I just love this here:

The way you've incorporated the BURPs is great and I really like that you can reach the underground cells via the water, which makes rescue attempts by brave pirates possible.

Man, what is in the Polish water that makes you all such good MOCers? :pir_laugh2:

This is a beautiful fort. I love the colors, and you gave it a really nice feel with the transition from water to rock to the fort. Excellent work, you're on the frontpage! :pir-classic:

A very well done MOC Piglet! I love the color scheme, the rocks are very well done, and pretty much everything blends perfectly. Excellent work!

Brilliant fort! :thumbup:

I love the small cage with the skeleton and the good use of damaged official walls.

Amazing you combined all three models into a giant fortress, however I think i heard of the name already where was it? Which realy comes up to me is that whenever there's a fort on here it's controled by redcoats.Probaply because their name are imperial guards so they guard the forts while us bluecoats go out like the soldiers we are.Anyway sorry for off topic but it is a wonderful fort.

What do you mean?

Maybe you have some recalls with my last year's MOC - Spaniards Bay:

http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=29730

I use here the same white bricks and the tower is similar ; o)

Which realy comes up to me is that whenever there's a fort on here it's controled by redcoats.Probaply because their name are imperial guards so they guard the forts while us bluecoats go out like the soldiers we are.

I just wanted to use my new pirate sets minifigs. If they were blue I would use them the same way ; o)

From the original series I prefer blue coats over the red ones.

Thank you for all the comments.
