Christmas time is building time. So I did a small MOC for my Bluecoats. As you can see, I was inspired by 6265 Sabre Island.

Captain Heureux and two soldiers were left behind on this tiny island. Unfortunately their boat was swept away. Well, at least they have alot of crabs to eat.

Maybe the crabs get to eat  :pir_laugh2:
Nicely done, I like the swords on the tower, they make a nice reference to sabre island.
They are missing a big palmtree though.

Nice fleshies settings, and the use of newer colours to have a refreshing take on the classic Sabre Island. I can see the lineage in the design!

This is a nice one, I can indeed see the influence of Sabre Island in here, but with new flavours. :pir-sweet:
I like the rocky shore and the detailed building. Dark red crabs? I should get a few too!

Sail to My Brickshelf or to My MOCpages, or my Flickr Photostream!

Very nice outpost! It looks kinda like a mixture of classic bluecoat sets and the latest Pirates of the Caribbean stuff (the island itself somehow reminds me of the Isla De La Muerta set).

A white scabbard??? This is amazing!Posted Image  Great work my friend!
And from a photographer's standpoint, try to get all natural light (the sun, indirect lamps, etc.) out of the photo.  I suggest going to spacePosted Image the catacombsPosted Image or a cemetery at nightPosted Image to get a good photo! If you cant access one of those, try to keep all lamps off or take the photo in a dark room with no windows(a bathroom, a closet, a hallway)
Great job though!
