Thankyou for all your great comments, I have been busy with pirate mocs this last month for the JRC. Only 1 more and my community build and then I have some castle mocs to work on. But I have some new pirate ideas that i'll start after that.

Wow, amazing stuff here.
I like the way you built to ruins, but have to get used to the same round plates as walls for the house.''
Is there a passageway from the cave to the house or castle?
No, i abandoned the passageway as I'd like to do it on a larger scale in a later moc.

Wow amazing detail! an excellent cave, the skulls at the back are quite clever, and the rocks came out perfect! and now I just HAVE to ask, is there a rock building tutorial somewhere I could use? my cliffs end up looking like wall extensions
I might make a basic tutorial for rock/cliff building as it seems quite a few people have trouble with it. In the meantime it might help you to take a look at real life pictures of coastlines to get some ideas.

These gigantic dios are great- cave is excellent addition- so piratey -but there is one problem- all are similar looking- because of those rocks- they are great- but i would like to see flatter island for a while- like the sandy beaches of Bahamas (like in the works of Howard Pyle) or something similar- however i know that building giant rocks is more funny than flat beaches
Yes, they do look similar, but that is the modular style ive been working with, so they can make a coastline. I have tryed to not make them as often now, as the last one was back last year. There is so many formations and ideas that you can do with the cliffsides. I plan to make the rock work on future mocs much more interesting with lots more caves, coves, rock pools and other hidden things. I have got some flatter mocs that i plan to work on, but like you say, making rugged cliffs and caves is a lot more fun.

Great that you can see inside the cave on the back of the MOC, and all the details are just stunning!
Thanks fors the blog!

It's safe to say you have become one of the best LEGO Pirate builders around.
The details you include in your work are overwhelming.
Thankyou, always great coming from a ship moc master such as yourself
