Cutlass Island is an Imperial fort infamous for it's lazy guards, but Honor Harrington, the new commander, plans on making them the best. She faces much hatred and prejudice, but she will prove herself in the upcoming midnight raid by Captain Rascus the Bold and his crew.

Good MOC.  It really brings back memories from my childhood, for some reason.  I can't quite put my finger on it, but something about this, as I said, really reminds me of the early days of Pirates.  All in all, I really like it.

That's a very nice and good looking fortress island!
The Imperials will be happy with such a fort! I especcialy like the two leveled tower.

nice fort you've got there! it has that classic pirates feel yet it incorporates newer building techniques. i'd say the imperials are in deep trouble... they are way outnumbered.

I like small to midsized forts. I think you can enjoy the detail a lot more.

Great fortress you've got there! It looks cool and there are lots of details on it.
The water could be flourished up by adding different colours (dark blue, light blue and white) and some floating stuff.
The fort itself is perfect to me. But there is such a small flag on it, you haven't a larger one? From a large distance the ships can't see if there are Red or Bluecoats in there... :pir-tongue:

Keep it up! :thumbup:

I really like the little rock outcrop and greenery at the base.  It does seem to capture that classic-pirates feel.  Well done.

It's loosely based off Sabre Island, so that may be why.  :pir-wink:

I don't have enough white 1 x 2 tiles, unfortunately. :pir-cry_sad:

Well if you have a large red flag, i'd trade it for a blue one :pir-wink:

Nice little fort you made there, the landscaping and water are well done too!

Nice tower! I like your little story behind it, perhaps next you can make a battle of this. The style of the building is good, and I like the terrain. I think you could work on the water a bit, perhaps you could make SNOT waves?
