Good start  :thumbup: I like the texturing on the dock walls.  It's a good idea building it into a space like that too, makes it look really clean.  I envy that pile of pirate parts!

Looks promising already, especially the crane.
However, I must ask you to improve your grammar a little bit (always capitalize I when you're saying "ik" in English, and use ' when saying for example "I'll" and "It's".
Thanks in forward and good luck on your MOC!

Nice! I like the story progression, and that crane is very impressive  :thumbup:
Maybe you could texture the walls of the tower the same way you did the docks? You could probably do this easiest by brickbuilding it instead of using the LEGO castle panels; just an idea

The story Continues:

Serveral caravans from the bluecoats have arrived past week, the fort now has walls and 3 stairs to get up to the fort.

After a storm, the caravan that was holding 4 big wooden doors aboard arrived.
There are still coming caravan ships to bring Stones and wood for the fortifications.
Even 2 cannons arrived to defend the fort.  :cannon:  :cannon:

An update/Finish will soon arrive on the Forum!

That first building looks very nice.  The section above the door looks really great, and I'm sure the whole fort will look really nice when its done.

Great job :thumbup:

Well people,

It took some time before I Uploaded Everything.
Well the fort is finished now.
This fort is named to a well know hero from the Netherlands, Admiraal Michiel Aadriaanszoon De Ruyter.

Looks like you've build a very nice fort!
But can you please resize your pictures to a maximum of 800x600 pixels?
Your page now takes ages to load, thank you!
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

Great MOC, lots of details and soldiers you have there, only the lack of cannons is a bit worrying, there should be some more IMO. the MOC is quite dark due the colours wha you have chosen, Black and Grey. Is that bell non Lego one? Because it looks like it. And im not suprised at Bluecoats need some help for defeating the Pirates, they are actually letting them to come in their own ports and they dont arrest them!? Typical Bluecoats lazyness. (Sorry about that). And why im in the Bluecoats suit almoust in every picture? :pir_laugh2:  :thumbup:  Great MOC whit alot of details, and playbility.

If you aren't able to do it soon, I can see these images being removed.  They are gigantic and with so many, it takes a very long time to load on slower connections, this is pointed out in the Members Guidelines thread.
You have 25 or so pictures at 1.5 megabytes each, that equals roughly 35+ megabytes one is required just to view the thread.
Smaller images will take 1/4 the time to upload, which is likely why it took you so long the first time.

I removed all the Big pictures, replaced a video from youtube.
Well, I did this so my Youtube fans can watch mycreations there also.

I'll put a link of Classic-Pirates.com to promote the website!

A few deeplinked pictures may work good as well (in the right size), but it's a great fortress.
Very large and impressing and worth a place on our frontpage.

Really relaxing, a video showing the pictures, well done.

Hey Bjornu,

Cool to see, you like bluecoats as much as I do.
Always been jealous to people who have that much bluecoats!

Are there coming more Bluecoat buildings? after Fort de ruyter and Bluecoat outpost?

I would like to see what he is going to find now.
