hello, since the new potc sets came out am I a fan of Lego pirates. Here is my first MOC I made other then star wars. I wanted to make it bigger, but sadly I don't have  a lot of green pieces and I have to BL some. Sorry if the quality of the pics isn't great, and I don't have removed the backgroung, because I'm not a photoshop hero.

but here it is:

I think this MOC turned out ok. I might going to change the rock, and remove the BURP and replace it with normal dark bley bricks. i think the tree turned out nice. i used the ''old western fort pieces, to make the 5 sided shape.

Feedback is always welcome.

Good first Pirate MOC. The tree and the water are especially nice.
The flesh soldiers look good as well, but perhaps yellow epaulettes would have looked better (if you have them) to make them look less white.
The grey "wall" all around the MOC looks very professional, but maybe it could be even lower so it doesn't look like a wall.
Still, good job :thumbup:

Great scene Blackknight112. I like the landscaping and the tree is also nice looking. Only thing wich i would change is those two redcoats faces so at the older face is on the Commander or what ever hes rank might be. Excellent work overall.

I think the wood bricks are called "palaside" bricks

Great job mate!!!! My only qualm with this moc, and it might just be me, but I do not like any facial hair on my red coats soldiers... I would think they would all be clean shaven...the standard...

Good job! I'd only add some sand or rocks by the water, grass just over the water doesn't look very natural  :pir-blush:

I like this, what I do like are the solders and their white shoulder pads on the red uniform, it actually looks really good. Might have to do a whole troop like that.

Looks cool to me! :thumbup:
The tree is very creative, as is the river bank. Nice photo quality too!
I would only change the 1x1 green brick, surrounded by slopes in the last picture to a bley one. I would keep the BURP!
