Last full MOC before I enter the Pirate contest... *sweet*

And, of course, the Islanders (and monkeys) are winning and thir vanquished foes will meet a culinary end :-D
I have finally decided that Achu is now a member of the tribe, and the wizard/mage/wise-man/Amazonian-priest at that! :-)

The first photomograph doesn't show this, but the beach curves upwards...

Enjoy! :-P

:-D VERY FUNNY!

I love all the little details, like the magic fire, the thieving monkeys, the "hot" pirate, or the sumberged one...!  *wub*

Great Job, mr. SlyOwl

Very cool, and good use of perspective.

Now do Pirate vs Ninja!  *sweet*

Nice scene! Very detailed ~ theres a lot to look at! (And there's that baby again!  *sing* )

I also like the curved beach. The mountains also look good, but only from the perspective of the second picture, IMO. Great job!  *sweet*

One of the Islanders couldn't stand waiting and got hungry?

Great job, love the perspective. I've never done a MOC like that, maybe I should try sometime. Good luck on the contest!

Gee SlyOwl, not a stud in sight - you must hate them  X-D

Once again another superb SlyOwl creation!  You never fail to impress with your use of vibrant colours and the amusing antics you apply to the characters within.

I love it. Very um.... interesting. The hills are a little fake, and I think I like studs in a lego model as it makes it look more lego-ish, but I really like it. Well done.

Another fine MOC, SlyOwl! I really like those perspective mountains. Once again, I love the use of the gears and flower petals as arrow wounds. However, is it just because the pic has been resized, or does that baby have a moustache?   :-D

Your MOCs are always masterpieces. This one is not different.
Those typical trademark of yours, great use of colors and a lot of humor, are again present in this one.

A neat and colorful scenery, very lively, with a fine landscaping and an interesting attempt to perspective depiction indeed.  *sweet*

Wonderful creation SlyOwl!

One could wonder why almost all your MOCs contain baby's though. X-D

Yes, I rushed them as I needed to photomograph it before it got dark and started raining *sing*

It does. You mean you didn't have one when you were born? X-D

Nice play with perspective. I especially love the woman getting dragged off by a pirate while an Islander drags a pirate off to dinner at the same time! X-D The guy drowning because of the Islander is nicely done as well.

It looks mighty fine, and apart from the moustache baby your MOC confronts me with only one question: "Do you in fact hate studs?" :-P

This is cool! The scene is great with many smart details. I'm impressed by how you used the blue wizard's hat to imitate the water, I have never seen this before. Blogged!

Praise indeed, from the mighty hippo!  *sweet*
As for the wizard's hat, I used it once before in a tie-breaker MOC here, although it was very small, and so went unnnoticed outside the Pirate forum...

And to yourself - you showed great ship building skills in the CCCV; are you planning to do more like it?

Indeed, I missed this disturbing creation. I wonder how it would look with the red hat...

I'm suprised you noticed my ship, thank you! When it comes to pirates, I prefer treaure islands over ships and I probably will build it someday. I got a lot of pirates
figs which are angry at me for not using them...

This is an oldie, but islanders are a hot topic with TOR III so let's take another look at it on the BLOG!

Go to Classic-Pirates.com

Please note, I can bump super duper old threads, but you CAN'T another perk of being a blogger!

You can discuss this now that I have bumped it though, so have at it!!
