Hi all!

I'm from Spain and I come from LUG HispaLUG.
Last december we organized our annual expo, the HispaLUG Expo 2012 near Barcelona. I showed in the exposition my last moc about pirates, Barbarossa's rescue. It is a history about a pirate captain that several years ago was captured by the Governor into a very strong fortress. And now his tripulation is going to rescue him...

As you can see links to my flickr gallery, I created a history like a comic. It is in spanish language, but next week I will post it in english.

Best regards!

Very nice! Clever technique with the upside-down rocks.

As said, the rocks are very nice! Also the half destroyed wall details looks great and is typical for the Bluecoats fort.

And the story - escaping from the Bluecoats fort - no big deal ...

This is a gorgeous build! :wub_drool: I love the detailing on the wall, it looks very professional and well done. I like how it also maintains a "classic" feel. Amazing work, keep it up my friend! :wink:

That's indeed a very clever use of the prefab rocks! I've never seen them upside down before. :thumbup:

The whole concept is pretty sound though. MAybe a bit chaotic, but very lively!

Lots of thanks to all for comment. As most of you had said the burp panels is a new technic that I ideated because I didn't liked the normal inclination of the hill, so I thought to put them reverse. :laugh:

Best regards!
