Very original idea for an entry. You've made a really nicely 'crowded' scene. I really like all the details on the sea bottom and the design of the buildings on the shore.

Can't wait to see more!!! This looks great - the idea of townsfolk rushing to the dried up sea floor in order to collect treasure is totally awesome, and so is St Ana's custom hull - great job Blackmoor! I'll drop by later to see more details of this wonderful MOC :]

Wow - that is just amazing- Incredible build, and incredible idea.

I must say, that these last few days of the competition have been very exciting for us all.

Good luck in the competition, you stand a great chance IMO

edit: I totally forgot to congratulate you on your storyline for this entry - It's really great, and along with your building techniques and many details, this is probably my favourite entry this year

I'm eager to see more pictures of this!

This is the best moc ive seen from you and i personally think this is the best large entry so far. I love the whole look of it, you've really captured the scene well. The ship is awesome, i really like that style of ship, and you've crammed so many great details all around the whole moc. I just really like the whole idea and layout, the scene is one that really appeals to me. Most excellent work Blackmoor!

I share Derfel's concerns :pir_bawling: ... but well, I guess bikes weren't invented back then - and besides, I haven't been around the C-P forum that long :/

Back to your entry though - what works best for me here is, as noted above, the multitude of levels. Seabed, ship, streets, interior & separate floors - and numerous subplots going on throughout! Just a quick question though - are those scalps of Indigo Islanders used as lamps on purpose or is it just a nice usage of pieces... I'm confused :pir-laugh:

I can't think of one single thing that's missing here. No creative critiquing from me then - this is hands down yet another top-notch MOC that's simply perfect as it is.

I'm sure the galleon will get a new home soon, on the shelf this time. Not sure what I'm going to do with the MOC itself, it's pretty huge and I don't want to destroy it!

Hey captain, what a lovely underwater ...no wait *delete*... overwater ...hmpf *delete*... waterless scene. That's it!  :pir-sweet:
The different height levels give them all so much depth and solid base.
The house on the upper left looks very fine with the blue and black slopes but the beam above is a bit chunky. Not really bad.
Very good entry

Too bad the picture quality isn't a little better. But at least it shows all the nice little details, like Armendariz in a barrel and the black and blue detailing on one of the houses. You'll be a serious contender in the large division.

Well done on a great entry Blackmoor, lots of great detailing, as Derfel mentioned the cheese detailing on the walls looks great. Is it only my face in the entry or entire Forestman figure? I strained hard to look!

Good luck in the wash up!

wow, speechless!

So much going on and such a great design.  I've seen a lot of pirate MOC's on EB but never one like this.  The shoreline looks so good, it really looks like it would on a really low tide.  Plus the ship and all, there is so much in this MOC, I don't think I'd have enough spare bricks to even build it.

Wonderful job.

This is easily your best MOC to date!  It is fantastic.  It is huge (which of course I like).  It has so many layers to it.  I love that best.  It is very beautiful and should easily be one of the top entiries for this category.  Good luck and thanks for including me (am I the spanish guard?  I looked everywhere for my head in a jar.)  :pir_laugh2:
