You have added a lot of detail in this MOC. Sand green fits in an old city wall I think.
I like the church, the bell is really nice. And the flag of New Spain is nice as well. :thumbup:

Sail to My Brickshelf or to My MOCpages, or my Flickr Photostream!

Nice MOC. There are really a lot of things going on there. I think a white/blue background would look better here, but for the rest it's good.
I must say, I really like your crab! :pir-sweet:  I've never seen that before but it's genious.
For the rest, I like your minifigures, you have a lot of cool faces. And the buildings are nice too.
good job :thumbup:

A very nice MOC with lots of details. I think that the buccaneers are goners, there's no way for them to get into the fort

Looks great! The beach and fortress/city are amazing, filled with details.
A big  :thumbup: from me.

Nice!
Church is very good!
Coloring on the walls could be better, imo, but it is probably just me.
Also the vegetation is beautiful!

:pir-sceptic: Well only two guards and one little gate to the city- (this is not supposed to be main entrance  :pir-classic: ) but a kind of "backdoor"- so maybe they kill the guards and then wait spanish reinforcements- and ambush them- buccaneers used many bold tactics :pir-tongue:

Flag should be correct it is a bit different than the one used in the ships of the Spain during that time. And sand green is supposed to be moss of course :pir_laugh2:

Nice MOC! I really like the bell and the use of the Hermoine hairpiece.
I am not really in fond of the smoke/blast that is coming from the cannon though. It might be the light or something, but it looks a bit out of place. Maybe you could use white instead.  :pir-sceptic:

Why would you quote yourself with tons of smilies just to say you overused smilies, from the same post even???  I don't get it.

On to your MOC, I think it's a great scene, a little busy but that's actually a good thing in my book.  The buildings look appropriate for a water side port.  Is that a gallo's to the far left?  THe bell tower looks nice but what's up with the cannon on the right, it's got a grey piece blocking the cannon.

All the figs are great, they are placed in a realistic way, and their faces are good.

Overall a very nice MOC.

Thanks for comments- but it seems that you really don't understand my humour :pir_laugh2:  maybe its bad but still... i said that i used too much smileys and being kind of selfironic and added too much again- ummm, :pir_wacko:  anyway i think you understood that "grey piece" is meant to be smoke - i like it -i have seen much worse effects but when i do one which is not perfect -everyone complains about it :pir-hmpf:

But there are also better effects. We just want to make every MOC perfect :pir-sweet:  Your MOC looks good but it can look even better. So I don't see the problem. I think comments are very useful to improve your MOC's and building skills. Our comments are not ment to just say what is wrong about it, but to improve the MOC.

Well that's  true :pir-classic:  but problem is that there is no perfect part for smoke effect- at least i haven't seen it so it is about personal opinion- and my opinion is that my effect looks good enough- but of course i agree wih that fact that critic can be and should be constructive- anyway thanks for comments everyone :pir-blush:
