Deep in the wood of Avalonia, lay the ancient ruins of a time long gone. The crafty forest thieves of Avalonia have converted the ruins into a hideout. It's not the most comfortable housing but works for laying low. They mostly stash loot and get drunk there.

Awesome! This was the first forestmen set I owned, and
my favorite  castle faction. You done a beautiful job of recreating a larger, more elegant version. Great idea and great build!

Thank you. They were my favorite too. I sadly no longer own them, so I have to make my own unofficial forestmen.

I've always liked that set, though I never owned one. Your remake is great, I especially like your version of the opening parts  :thumbup:

You have certainly made a fine and absolute nice MOC with the thought of remembering the outstanding classic 6066 Camouflaged Outpost! Your landscaping is done very nicely and I really enjoyed this modern version as much as the classic one.  :thumbup:

Now, see, THIS is the kind of re-imagining we all could use more of! Of all Castle sub-themes, Forestmen have been sorely underused. I vote TLG bring back the sub-theme, and make you head designer. I'd buy multiples of every set!

Great remake! I really like the way you made the tree by using two different colors for both the trunk and leaves. All your details and foliage is top notch as usual :thumbup:

Thank you. The tree was the most challenging part of the build. I'm glad you liked it because I personally was unsure of it. I really don't like brick built trees. I love the Banana Balance style tree.

Thanks, everyone for the support. Now I need to make some more stuff for you all.

Great that it can be split up, even you don't notice it in the MOC!

And indeed very typically Avalonian: all those flowers and trees... :laugh:
