Zorro3999 : thanks man, I know my english suckss, but as I said, I didn't learn it at school, if you have some advice , they're welcome ( like your French : "natif " >> " natale" ) if someone don't understand something I wrote, just ask me.
yeah you're the only survivor.. well.. drunk survivor, but Imperialscout is not dead ! well.. maybe he will die soon ^^ and Erdbeereis just ate a rifle butt, maybe he'll survive^^
I'm not really "all out ".. I have some red, dark , and yellow bricks left ( but no yellows tiles...so I can't make the beach smoother, I wish I had! ) , I also have some space stuff and wheels of course :P ( and a lot of minifig that can't be used here, unless it's a space pirate attack ^^ )
My girlfriend offered me the castle advent calendar , and in it there is part I can use!! but she doesn't want me to open it until the december, 1st ... or she'll refuse to.. well.. you understood I think ^^
Jimbutcher : thanks a lot^^ the boat was hard to build with it snot hull, but the result is stronger than I thought ( I kicked it accidentally , and it's still complete! only the mast broke)
anyway, thanks again everyone

There is certainly a lot going on! Loads of fun and detailed scenes everywhere. The only thing I could critisize the creation for is that many of the houses and figures aren't historically accurate, but that's totally understandable if you're not a pirates collector - and it adds diversity to the whole village, really.
There is also a nice background story going on in the descriptions, but it's somewhat hindered by many grammatic and spelling mistakes. The mistakes in spelling, punctuation and capital letters makes the text a bit hard to follow. But you're not a native English speaker, so I won't beat you about it too much. The story is still fun and versatile enough!
Thanks for this colorful and very detailed creation, I think you have a good chance of grabbing one of the prizes in this category!

actually I was a pirate collector, until my mother sold everything ^^ and when I came out of my dark age, the pirate theme disappeared , so I'm really glad that'll come back next year! for this moc I used a lot of city-star wars stuff ( 10144 ) , for the historically correct fact, I think they are not that far of what existed in the 1700-1800, but not in the Caribbean and maybe there's too many colours ... 3 coloured houses were not really current ^^

1. The placement of figures and objects, really nice. Filled but not too cluttered.
2. The feeling you get when looking at it, it really looks like a good harbor and village.
What could be improved:
1. More villians, that's actually the only thing this MOC is missing.

Sorry to double post, but I added the character description in the first page ( without the pics ^^ but with link to it, just click on the name of the characters ) , I also modified a little the pictures description, I tried to make it more "readable" , I don't know If it worked, as you noticed, I don't speak english very well ^^ ( and plus I have an horrible french accent! what ? you can't notice it while reading ? sorry, nevermind^^ ) . anyway , I think it'll be the final update, and I think I'll take a lot of pictures of it because I'll surely have to destroy it soon... ( because I don't know where to put it .. little apartment sucksss ! ) . so... Enjoy ^^
of course comments and critics ( and advices ^^ ) are always welcome, even if it'll be hard to photography it again, I'll see what I can do !

It's very clear that you put a lot of hard work in this and I think it really paid off!
You just have so many great and sometimes funny details which is always a plus for me and the design of the houses and ships is quite nice as well.
I really can't think of anything I would improve upon, so I'll just shut up and say, fantastic job Guss!

anyway, It seems that you like it, and I'm very glad of it^^ thanks a lot Talon Karrde and Erdbeereis1 !

The descriptions for the characters and pictures is a nice touch too.
Posted 02 November 2008 - 06:07 PM
anyway, thanks you very much ! I'm glad you liked it

Btw I modified my moc before destroying, I make it like if it was 1 week before the attack ( I called it " One week ago" ) Am I allowed to post some pictures of it or must I wait till the end of the contest ?
(they're bad pictures, I don't have the white background anymore and I used not-natural light because I did it at night, but that's funny anyway^^)

as captain Zuloo said it s allowed here is a link to what does it looks like one week before the attack :
(there is 2 pages of pics, if you start to watch it with the viewer, you'll have to change the pages once you finished the first one )
I'm hesitating to post it in the entry post ( the first one) , let me know if you think it's allowed and if I must do it or not ^^
