A small British outpost in Upper Canada (Ontario) during the winter of 1813.

Another overview.

Explanation: With some new snow and Pirate sets, I decided to take some pics.

Stay tuned for the rest of the series!

Some say the vikings were tall, others say they were short. But they were in-between, They were armies of Ronny james Dios.

Looking good, although considering this is snowy Ontario I'd change the fern leaf pieces on the wall to something else.

Very smart thinking including snow. I think it makes the background look even better!

I like it very well and the snow has a very nice effect on this.
But just like Hawkii9 said: tropical leaves don't really fit in here. I understand you've just combined some sets together and it looks still pretty cool.
Nice work.  :thumbup:

I live in New Brunswick and I HATE THE SNOW :pir-sick: :thumbdown: :pir-angry: :pir-sad: :sick: :pir_mad:

I agree with the other fellows, there wouldn't be green leaves growing on a wall in Ontario. But still a good job by using the snow.

That looks really Nice Lt Thok. Perhaps you could put a thin layer of snow on the bricks and figs next time. :pir-classic:

Darn, I wish I took advantage of the heavy snowfall earlier this month.. A missed oportunity, I guess.
