[DIGITAL] My very first MOC - The Forgotton Beach Fortress

Recommended Posts

Hello there and happy new year,

since I had a lot of freetime yesterday, I started my very first MOC.

The idea of a conquered royal fortress near the beach with a proper web for the big ships and an island setting (which has to be added obviously. I liked the idea of a serious sized fortress without having to build the entire one (cann follow later).

The walls are obviously influenced by the sabre island 2021 design, which I want to add to the seeting later.

Would like to hear your thought. It's currently 560 pieces.

 

Best,

Christopher

Hello and happy new year,

Welcome to the pirate forum. :pir-huzzah2: Good first MOC. The fortress wall is well constructed. I like the sloping bricks between the straight ones. The inside is also interesting. On the level there is a pigsty and a prison. A staircase leads to the cannon positions. Then over a ladder to the shooting positions with loopholes. The jetty is also well built.

Thank you, I actually started with the jetty to get comfortable with the software. Therefore, a rather simple jetty is a good point to start with. 

I am still thinking about a great entrance to the fortress or some kind of torn down concrete parts to make the fight of the past more visible.

Probably the fortress will end a bit more chubby than it is now. 😁🏴☠️

I wanted a starting point to add the barracuda bay and/or the Sabre island tower to turn the island into a big pirate world.

It's very nice. However now you have a problem that your first MOC was too nice and now the level of expectations are raised for your next one.  :pir_tong2:

Thank you very much. Apart from some more decoration and alternated water shapes, I will stop here.

BTW: does somebody know how to export a high resolution pdf from the manual? The pdf generated there seem to be highly compressed for my eyes. Would love to have a printed issue.

It's coming along nicely! :pir-thumb:

Are you able to add minifigs?

Why stop? Did you run out of time?
