first of all, I want to tell that, when the Lego stopped the pirate topic(1996) :pir_bawling: , I left the Lego :pir-angry: ...till the last year :pir-laugh: ... so I found a lot of new topics, even many things that seemed not like lego (:pir_yoda:)

searching for.. I don't know what on ebay, I found this baseplate

I like your creation a lot!

The grey you used for the fortress is in my mind a little nicer than the traditional white and yellow. Though both serve there purpose!

As for the baseplate, I ironically have the same one and have a MOC on it that I was going to post in the near future!

I am glad I am not the only one thinking it makes for a great pirate baseplate!

:pir-laugh: I apologize for having advance :pir-laugh: , but the base needed a MOC, and of course, I would like to see the MOC, and so we can make improvements and generate more ideas

:pir-blush: and about the pattern of gray ... My soldiers didn't have enough to buy white paint :pir-blush:

Wonderful Moc!!!!

I loved everything in it.

I'm sure there's lot for improvement, but thanks for your comment

Nice baseplate. I had not seen it before but it seems very suitable for the pirates theme.

The fort is also nice and I like the crane-thing, always good to have in a fort :pir-classic:

Good job :thumbup:

Very nice usage of this baseplate! Actually, this is how real fortresses were build most of the time. They looked for a spot with some natural defensive advantages to build a fortress (which is kinda what you did here by using this baseplate) and adapted the fortress to this environment.

This fort is simply great!

Small, yet detailed and cosy. Looks like a real one! The whole scene is fantastic!! :pir-wub:

Very cool MOC, the baseplate was a great starting point, I like how much action you squeezed into a small area.

That's what I try to do, getting the base first, and then try to consistently accommodate a fortress ... designs there are thousands, but the real need is accommodated with what nature gives us

the final result is a lot action in a squezzed, but confortable place

This is a great MOC! I think it is an awesome fort and looks like a lot of fun. I really liked the treasure hold part. Great job!

I LOVE THIS. my favourite part is the statue :pir-wub: I am finding it hard to get bluecoats because i only started liking lego pirates a few months ago.

Even though this is such a fantastic fort with secret doors :pir-wub: the imperial flagship would absolutely obliberate it.

I like the prison and the secret doors quite a bit. :pir-wub:

But i have a question how do I upload stuff? I want to do a review on the imperial flagship and brickbeards bounty.

GREAT FORT.

psst I love redcoats over blue coats :pir-grin:

thanks for your comments!

about getting bluecoats, well, its important to know that they are a little old (1989), but you can get them via e-bay or BrickLink

about upload stuff, well, I had troubles with the pictures in my first post, but, like I was recommended, check out this tutorial, just for upload pictures, but its a good start!!!

Here it is:

Great MOC! Loved to see such a closed structure on this baseplate, I struggled a bit with an earlier try

(First I just rebuilt 6262 on it to have a small fortified port, here are some pictures of it: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=386754)

Too bad these modified baseplates are such rarities, I also love them as they can give a real challenge

Hi again, well, you can star a new topic in the bottom "star new topic", near of the pages number, here

but, if you want to post a MOC (your model of lego) you have to go to "pirates MOC's" here

when you start a new topic (in the main page or in the MOC's page) the editor starts, with the basic text editor (plus pirates emoticons( :pirate: ), insert link, insert pictures, etc), if you have already an account in Brickshelf, use the past tutorial, And attempt to start your post on Eurobricks... And I will waiting for them :pir-grin:

about other things, look at this tutorials compilated by Hinckley

I had trouble seeing your pictures, I found the problem and take the liberty to include the link again -imperial-port-pirate-island-

is very good to see this use, if you continue with the contrucction, you should try to keep the color scheme and structure, its very nice;

I love this bridge and would be good to keep this castle-like wall around all the edge to protect to the cannons and the soldiers too

P.D. you should correct your flag, the other way around :pir-oh::pir-wink:

Great fort. It works very well with that base plate. I actually have a couple of those. I think they are wonderful for pirates!
