Hello! I've been lurking these boards for years now, but with the resurgance of Pirate building I thought i'd venture on over and share with you all some of mocs i've built recently!

Imperial Sentry
Posted Image

An attempt at building an Imperial fort. The hinge bricks made the overall shape a lot more interesting than it being square (imo). I wanted to try SNOT water early on in the build, but I soon decided against it- I don't think I have enough blue and I was still trying to get my head round it at the time. The tower might've been better higher as well, but no point in making regrets right?

Wrecked
Posted Image

I started building this for the Castaway contest over at the Forbidden Cove, but I got it finished far too early!

Following the MOC above it was my first attempt at SNOT water. I think while in practice it looks better, i'll be honest, I far prefer good ol' trusty baseplates. I'm still a newbie!

A Different kind of Booty

Though the map was innaccurate, the journey was far from a failure- Mermaid Rock proved to be the real treasure of the quest.  :pir_laugh2:

Comments and constructive criticism welcome!

Cool MOCs. I've seen a few of them over on The Brother's Brick before and I really like the imperial sentry. It's refreshing o see a pirate MOC where a studded sea doesn't detract from the rest of the MOC.

That's good to know. If I had more know-how and blue I probably would've gone in a SNOT direction, but I think for shallower water it looks right enough.

Thanks again.

I love them. That fort is great, and as you said, it does really give a change of pace from the usual square forts (Zcerebus' Fort Brighton is another.)

I love the shipwreck, it's just great and packed full of details! Keep 'em commin'!
Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)

Dude, stop bashing yourself. You're MOCS are great. There is nothing wrong with them. They are very realistic! Keep up the great work.

Yes. Your flickr folder seems to have been there for centuries, yet you only join us here now? Well maybe not for centuries as these are only new MOC's, but I wanted to sound interesting.
