The exploration and conquest of the New World often brought conflict between the various European countries and their armies that often started with skirmishes and ended with full scale battles.

This is more like a killing zone to trap invading armies.

Those are just three CMFs (musketeer, conquistador, actor).

When I saw that the conquitadors were next on CMF S8 to be released, I've been planning on having them as opponents to the musketeers.

Nice MOC! Even though you used large wall pieces, it doesn't look easy or boring.
I also haven't seen that many soldiers with golden spanish helmets in one MOC before.
Good job on the photography as well!

Seeing everyone together like that doesn't make me upset about the gold armor/helmet one bit. I was already okay with it, but seeing it in person makes me even more at ease. And I really like the actor with a black morion. I may have to get more actors than I originally planned on. I would love a Spanish army.

Keep up the great work. This is yet another neat looking build in your long list.

Lucky enough to get the conquistadors early!

I also didn't plan on getting that many actors but after I opened one, I knew I had to get more of them.

I really appreciate the visual aspect of this scene and the nice use of the baseplate  :thumbup:
The jungle is well represented too with a lot of plants, and the minifigs used are realistic (I really like the conquistadores' golden helmet).
The fortress walls are a success too with the use of these big printed parts !

Wow. I actually had to take a third look to actually find out that there are some spanish soldiers behind the walls! :laugh: Would swere that it's full of the French guys before... So this ambush is actually not that perfect as it could :wink:
Or maybe those guys in black morions are from another faction - Portugese perhaps :wink:

Anyway.. nice diorama! ... and very inspirational too... love this colonial-jungle adventure feel :wub:
