Hello people, I updated my website again and added 5 pirate models this time! Also the pirate theme is a complete new theme for my website! Don't worry, as usually I done everything in English and Dutch!

Medieval stuff:
- Kogge
- Kamper Kogge
- Target Dummy
- Bridge (5615 + 5615)
- Small Castle

Pirate Stuff:
- River Guards
- Pirate Watchpost
- River Outpost
- Water Pumps
- Secret Cave Island

Ofcourse there will be more soon, working on several projects for both themes!


DS9-LEGO website
(some people seem to get lost on my website for some reason, so here a quick way to get to the right pages: go to "Own" in the menu, then select "Models")

Tell me what you think of these mocs, any input would be nice aslong as it's usefull :pir-tongue:
Or perhaps you have some ideas that might be fun to add to the line.

I like what you're doing here :thumbup:

River Guards is a neat idea - I'd like to see more of these around, specifically in an enclosed/limited water body, as opposed to the open ocean.
The Pirate Watchpost is a bit boring, but it would work incorporated into a larger scenario. That torso works very well in black.
The River Outpost has a neat beacon/lighthouse, and I like the pistol holders. Have you used pauldrons on the other side, or just another neck bracket?
The water pump is great!
And the Secret Cave Island would be a really good set! Add a few cheesy gimmicks, some cheese slopes and a wrecked ship and voila! :pir-wub:

I love the colour scheme of the Kogge, although it could perhaps do with a few more accents in another colour (dark grey, bley, black), to break up the brown further. I don't quite get the Kamper Kogge - is it the same one, but stripped down?

(I think you need to rename the pages, though Castle project (huge) :pir_laugh2:

To the barricades!

Wouldn't it be easier to just link directly to what you want to show them: i.e.

Thank you for your input, I really apriciate it!

River guards - Yeah there are more coming later this year, not sure when though. just wait and see ;)
Pirate Watchpost - It was indended to be somthing as the official sets from the first pirate series plus to add a little extra tough. It wasn't ment to be more then that, I wanted to keep it simple but good in usage for everyone.
River Outpost - Thanks! About the figures, Next update will have the figures and the instructions on my website, so keep checking and you will find out :)
Water Pump - Thank you! Hope you will enjoy it!
Secret Cave island - This set was made around 4am this morning just before I went to bed, so kinda rushed it. For the website update I needed 1 extra pirate moc and this was the one being added. I will think about the wrecked ship idea, thats indeed a good idea!

The Castle Project (huge) was actually a real big project that was planned, but unfortunatly I had to stop it and restart from scratch. So that project is halted for good, version 2 of the project hasnt been worked on for over a year almost but so far not cancelled.

SCOOP:
I am working on a Brittish base type moc, only details I can give so far is that there will be a small harbor...

SCOOP2:
I am working on a big castle of atleast 4x 32x32 baseplates sized, this will have a armory, prison, blacksmith, but more details so far unknown even to me. Keep checking my website for information when it's released :)


EDIT: yeah would be easier Mister Phes, only thing then is that I won't see how many people been checking my site out :p

Your website statistics should tell you how many hits each page is receiving.

Your models really look good, I especcialy like the Secret Cave Island of the Pirates, also the bridge and outpost are very nice.
Your website does look a bit complicated to surf through though.

River Guards is a sweet MOC, and I'm gonna end up using a variation of that water pump... I like that a lot.
All time favorite: the original Imperial Flagship
Modern favorite: Race for the Stolen Treasure (X5 and counting)

Thank you and no problem! I am thinking of adding more nice small things like the water pump for ships. When I have something Ill make sure to keep everyone posted! I used alot more things like this water pump on my ships, so wouldn't be a problem to find out new things!
