My god, this is absolutely wonderful!  

I don't really know where to start because so much of this is epic, but the thing that really makes this model stand out is the attention to detail - it's the carvings in the rock, it's the way the sea has been built up, it's the stonework on the balconies...  

It's brilliant; thanks for sharing it.

Very nice, I like the rocks and cliffs on which you built the fort. Lots of details, I'll be checking this out later again in an attempt to spot them all  :pir_laugh2:

Beautiful fort!  :pir-wub:

Like others have said, it's the details that make this great. I like the rockwork and interiors especially.

Does the cannon spin when you turn the cross on the side of the base, or is that just for decoration?

Great job.

Hmm, seems I commented too early. I thought you were done with the pictures.  :pir-laugh:

As a fort I like the backside more, it's much more solid. Put a row of cannons in the upper ramparts and it'd be quite fearsome.

And something I didn't notice last time, the design of the beacon is awesome.

This is a fantastic MOC!
I think the thread is a bit overloaded with pictures though.
Perhaps it would've been better to post 10-20 pictures and a link to the rest.
Anyway, the high number of pictures do give a good view of the high number of great details in this MOC.
The design is very original and the fort seems to have everything it needs.
Well done! Go to Classic-Pirates.com

Man, I keep finding all of these awesome creations.
Anyway, I can't actually find anything I don't like. THe water is awesome, I love the mix with the rough stone arch with the smooth stone brick fort build on and into. My favorite things are all of the places where the fort is built right into the rock, such as the walkway in the cave-type rock arch. Also, the smoothness of it and all of the wooden accents are really nice.

I must say, this is one of the few forts I have seen on this website that is IMMENSE in size, and yet is so fine in detail! Bravo in that. like an earlier post stated, if you were to put more cannons along the wall, it would make this the finest fort in the armada!

I was just wondering, but is that an admirals quarters? If so, PLEASE take pictures of it! Thanks!

This MOC looks really great!
Reminds me of a Creation my dad made for me when I were a child, He made some sort of town like this.
I always enjoyed these kind of MOCs: Dont know for sure but I think I like these Stair everywhere all those spaces where you can play Etc.
Thanks for showing this great MOC, it brings back memories

Thanks for your comments!  :pir-cry_happy:
This shall be a ordinary fort for a combat-ready Armada company.

Ok, now I to see it too. -Just one canon is not enough. Next time give it more.  :pir_laugh2:

My commander has a small room beside the tavern. For an commander too small. -> The next fort get an bigger room for the commander.

There Are No Words to Describe this.
Actually, there is a few...


1) epic
2) awesome
3) nice
4) iwishibuildthat (is that a real word?)

Absolutely amazing. I don't see forts very often, but this one is outstanding compared to the many that i have seen.

Wow. I love it. The elevation changes and all the detail and unique spaces really make this fort special. It's nice and big as well. Go Redcoats!

Beautifully made with a lot of in-dept detailing! Way superior to any fortress TLG made. The wooden roof looks really good in combination with the stone base.  :pir-classic:
