I would have created a thread for each of these MOCs if I was posting them, because I'm very expansive you see.

However, I'm going to attempt to get the ball rolling and review the first MOC, then I'll review the other MOCs at a later date. However, someone else might review one or more of the MOCs in the meantime and I can see this thread getting messy and confusing. Of course I could be wrong, so we'll see how it goes...

First of all I'll begin by saying MOCs look better when photographed against a neutral colour background. Maybe this isn't applicable in every instance but A1 sized cardboard sheets (preferably blue for pirate MOCs) are inexpensive and many people have an old sheet lying around somewhere, so it would be good to hunt one of those down.
Some pictures focusing on the smaller details wouldn't go astray either. The The Brickster's Western set reviews are superb good examples of how to visually document a LEGO creation.
What I see here is an open faced tavern with what appears to be a jetty coming out the front of it. The tavern looks more like a cavern with all the black bricks and its tan coloured floor. I'm not sure if I'm suppose to presume the floor is sand or carpet. However, if this is intended to be a tavern built inside of cavernous cliff face then I'd have to say that's an interesting an original idea. If not then I'm not sure the MOC works for me because it looks more like ruins then a complete building. Are we supposed to imagine that this tavern is completely enclosed?
There are some nice touches of detail like the flames, the foliage and chain which break the monotomy of the blackness. The jetty has a goodly amount of supplies and I wouldn't mind that barrel full of oars for myself. :D But what's that thing with the flames on the table supposed to be?
I must ask, why the castle mini-figures and flag? Is there any particular reason they have been included in what seems to be a pirate MOC? Since there is already a pirate flag is the castle flag really necessary?
It would be interesting to know more about the story behind this MOC besides that's its used in Evil Stevie's Pirate game. Like do the mini-figures have names? Who are the affiliated/allied with? What has bought them to this tavern? Where is this tavern location, etc.
Anyway, this is a good effort laddie! So keep up the Pirate MOCing! (maybe ditch the Castle mini-figures though :oD )
OK, who is going to review next?

What's the address to your homepage where this story will becoming to?
If you want to buy lots of bricks, then try websites like eBay or BrickLink... Unless you want to go round searching garage sales and flea markets this is the only way you're going to get cheap second hand bricks.

Edit: I have just recentley bought about 50 pirate minifigs...Im getting there slowly but surely.

50 pirate mini-figures sounds like a goodly amount. Is this just pirates, or does it include Imperial Guards and Imperial Armada mini-figures as well? By all means take pictures of them and post them in a new thread, because I'd be interested in seeing what you've got.

He buys up cheap stuff from a guy in Denmark and then sells them for a profit.
