So perfect! :pir-sweet:  I really love the work you put into this! I really like the interior of the fortress/castle. The water affect itself just blows me away to the pirate days. I think this really did deserve a front page post. Great job Erdbeereis! :pir-cry_happy:

Just saw this on Flickr, great stuff!  Im not so sure on the red and gold /o\ pattern (for lack of a better way of describing it) on the inner wall, but man everything else is fantastic  :thumbup: especially love the water, gives it a nice choppy sea feeling... I feel inspired!

Oi! I love it! :pir-oh3:
The texture of the water looks like a great technique same with the structure of the building. The windows are also very nice. :thumbup:
I also notice that 1 of the first pics with the row boat the imperial flag is upside down.  :pir-grin:
Amazing job Erdebreeis! (Sorry if i spelled it wrong.)

Incredible. The curved walls, the water technique, the inside details, everything! Any pictures of the insides of those small buildings by the water?

There's nothing really in those to be honest. One of them has a little table with a map, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Excellent masterpiece Erdie! I really like the textured rocky base of the fortress and the effective use of blue slopes for the water waves. Impressive work for a year-long project! :thumbup:

This is fantastic!!! I love the daring architectural features but it's the landscaping that really does it for me  :thumbup:

Wow, what a big scene. The fortress is amazing. Those minifig legs as part of the construction and the plastic sprues as vines on the palm trees are really interesting.

awesome creation, and I espicially like all the action that is going on inside the fort with all those crazy little details, and what made me laugh the most was the lantern created out of canibal skalps, excellent work!

The architecture style is perfect, landscaping is believable, and the touches of everyday life for the soldiers is the icing on the cake.
