Hey guys
I'm mostly a Castle builder and I'm very active in the Guilds of Historica forum too. However, the Jolly Roger Contest 3.5 over at forbiddencove.com inspired me to finally jump into the pirate theme. I have done a build before, for the team building contest (with Soccerkid), but it was a fort and so completely different from this.
Here I present you:
Battle for the Fountain of Youth

Thanks for viewing!

Great work on vegetation and rock... and water of course!
The baby monkey is a great addition, but that baby tiger... lol
The action is greatly rendered. Congratulations.

Very good - I like the approach of having a rock with three differently coloured segments.

The battle scene is also exciting!

Falling troops seems to be a thing these days... Posted Image
Very nice work, the jungle feeling is dense.

Keep it up!

Thank you. It's actually the first time I put a Friends element really in a normal themed build and I think it fits well Posted Image.

Thanks Posted Image. Yes, falling troops makes everything better, so why don't put some in there Posted Image?
I hope to build more pirate builds in the future, I really enjoyed it.

This looks really nice and wasn't the Fountain of Youth in a Pirates of the Caribbean movie?

Thanks mate! Yes, it actually is. I haven't know it before I built this MOC (I only watched the first movie and because the second was so bad I didn't even take a look at 3 and 4), but after I completed this build, I just had to watch it...

Well done, I like the different colors throughout the rock structure.
I first thought it was dark tan you used on the lower rocks but I'm not completely sure now, is it old dark gray maybe?

Thanks a lot Sebeus. It is dark tan... but you just brought me to an epic idea... dark tan + old dark grey = epic win Posted Image.
