[COR - FB3 feb] The Founding of Quinnsville

Recommended Posts

The crew and soldiers looked up as Cpt Smaugton climbed onto a barrel at the beach they had just found.

While some of them where still busy unloading some supplies, and even one of the small cannons to offer some protection should anything be there with `none so good intentions`, the marine company took position to secure the beach.

He scraped his throat and then spoke with a fire in his voice...

"Men! We have sailed far and wide, but now we have found this yet-to-be-named-by-her-Majesty island. Hardship has been ours, but we have prevailed over the elements.

Let it be noted, that on this 15th day of the 2nd month of the year 616, on this very beach, we will plant the royal banner of Corrington. Here we will set foot, and here we will stay. This place shall become known as Quinnsville!

I have send worth to our government, and invitations to our friends and the MAESTRO faction, that as soon as we have totaly secured the area and our transport ships have arrived and unloaded, they are welcome to join in the creation of this new city and add to it`s growth and expansion!"

Well the third freebuild I did this month (after expanding my Naval fleet first), this is one of the beach sections that will hopefully by the time Brick Mania Wetteren comes around (the second weekend of april) be build up.

But before that, I wanted to use it to show the landfall of my sig-fig, as he places the flag of the Empire of Corrington to claim the lands.

So if you`re not of the Corrington empire, support the funding of the city by casting your approvals :pir-sweet:

I surely don't object to your colonizing this region. Unless your interests clash with ours...!!

Oleon (cautiously) approves

Lots of action, just as I would expect from a shipload of new colonists.

I would like to see some more details along the beach. Perhaps adding some rocks, sand dunes, or seashells could add to the realism and help vary the terrain, especially in places where it gets rather flat.

Thanks,

The flatness is due to the beach that will become part of something bigger, ans this particular section is going to be where the market place will come. I made the picture because you can`t be raising a hamlet without planting the flag on it first pirate_laugh2.gif

Anyways, currently the city is progressing nicely, and it should be ready on it`s first full outing in the beginning of april at Brick Mania Wetteren

I approve.

Make no mistake, while Quinnsville will have a (strong) MAESTRO presence, she WILL be falling under the Crown

This is a good way to depict landing and starting a settlement. The varying terrain and edge of the jungle are nice and I like the different blues of the water. Good collection of minifigs too.

I approve. :thumbup:
