I think this is awesome and worth blogging and featuring on social media in the future! :pir-huzzah2:

But for now, let's frontpage it on Eurobricks.

Amazing stuff, I love the mix of red bricks at the bottom and white on top, looks really cool + I can imagine it would be a nice change when building it.

Would love to see the whole build from behind though, would you be able to take a photo from that angle please?

Amazing.

Perfect color scheme. I really really like the archway (with the cannon looking through).

A fascinatingly detailed build! :pir-love: There is far too much detailed for me to even start giving feedback on. An amazing job! :pir-thumb:

Great work on this build. The buildings are perfect. All the details are present, but the minifigs in their various duties give the scene life. I do like that you have an interior for the buildings. Now, is that soldier really going to spank the money with the oar?

Very nice diorama! I like how the fortress was built on the rock right by the pier. The architecture is interesting and varied. Next to it is a beautiful sandy beach with palm trees.

You're just saying that because there's no pub in this one! :pir-tongue:

Perhaps not playful enough to be a classic Lego set, but otherwise stunning. I don't think anyone would mind an imperial counterpart to the pirate bay :)

Beautiful work here, and a welcome update to some of the older Pirate forts with plenty of silliness of course.

One thing I'd love to know is how you secured that red roof. It offers such a welcome contrast from the white and is sloped at a very effective angle. I've tried sculpting a terra cotta-like roof using similar round bricks for the Imperial Armada, but never got the angle right.

I understand the phrasing so i'm going to go back to when i was kid and remember who cared about "playful enough" (i dont mean you i just mean Lego's idea of how to create sets in the 2020's)

I made the sets playful by jumping off the wall, Rowing up to the deck, shooting the cannon, Sliding down the pole, defending the fort, etc.
