Spanish Colonial Outpost
Posted 12 October 2009 - 03:40 AM
I plan on expanding this vig into a diorama, with a couple large buildings, and a small band of Caribs raiding. This vig is almost like a sample of something larger.
Anyway, I hope you like it!
A lone corsair going for a stroll:
A disgruntled Carib Blowgunner:
A Spanish Musketeer
The Spanish Cross of Burgundy:
A couple quick notes: This is not for PTVII, but I might make something similar that will be. The Scimitar and Bayonet are from Brickarms. The custom flag is from Bricks & Customs. The Pirate's torso is a decal and was found on Brickshelf (can't remember username)
Thanks for looking!

The roof is becoming one of my favourite techniques these days (even though I am yet to use it myself), and the Indy fig parts fit in really well here.
The subtle ground texturing and colouring, with the well dispersed plants, add a lot to this. The non-boxiness of the landscaping is a definite improvement on San Pedro.

I just wonder where did you get those mexican brown minifig heads? I mean they would be on bricklink for sure but I'm just interested what set they came in.

The local guy in the background is a great touch, and thr bambo roof is awesome.
I'm curious where did you get the heads and arms for the two soldiers? They seem darker than usual.

The MOC itself is quite good. Nice positioning of the Native there. But it looks more like a miniature hut than an outpost. That may just be me, however. I don't know much about the Spanish colonial structures. Good roof textures there - I see a bit of SNOT!
Looking at the MOC again, I see that it is a colonial outpost - at a first glance looked like a log hut. Excellent work!

The heads are from the new Indy sets and are indeed slightly darker. The bayonet is a Brickarms prototype that is not available online. The flag was custom made and is from the Bricklink store Bricks & Customs.
Thanks again everyone!
