  1. Ceniza Bajo is a place for those who take opportuinities. Like this fruit merchant, who established his booth right in front of the leftovers of what may once have been the immaculate masonry of a temple, or an assembly hall, or even a king's palace. As with the wooden totem, enough is left on the Luther Islands to know that where the Eslandolans have now established Ceniza Bajo once rose a massive town - but not enough to tell who exactly had lived here, nor why they no longer are. A Small Commerce for Ceniza Bajo on Eileanne neh Luithhr (aka Luther Islands).

    Marvellous texturing of the house, I love it!
  3. I just wanted to do a small scene in Nova Terreli again. A colourful house, a nice balcony, and covered in vines all the way... As MCTC needs to raise some more troops... they just happen to be walking in front of this house in Nova Terreli. As a result: No more story about this MOC. Just some MCTC soldiers marching through Nova Terreli, before being deployed to their destination. Inspiration taken from:
  4. The terrain is really cool -good idea to show the actual scene without minifigs. Those small scenes from yours are always all around well done.
  5. Neat little scene - the transition from sandy ground to green is really well executed, and the minifig-posing clearly shows activity. Nice MOC!

    That's maybe the most out of basically a one-stud-wide-wall-MOC regarding photography and presentation I have seen. Using both sides and many angles, adding the post production effects, the great minifig posing and so on. Don't get me wrong: The wall is really well MOCed, great facade and texturing. But the amounf of pics and presentation you managed to extract from this is stunning.

    This is just a great execution of what a small factory is and should be. Great work! Also lots of nice details, like the smoke or the flowers. Great addition to BoBS.
  8. This is a fantastic scene. It provides a great impression of height and size, and also a feeling of wilderness and roughness, yet beauty at the same time. Wonderful work! I would suggest to make the vegetation at the bottom of the rocks a bit more dense, more wild, more "chaotic" even. Oh and I love this waterfall foam. Fantastic.
  9. Whatever you MOC seems to be amazing. This one is no exception. Everything is so well in place, the proportions always seem just right, and you never see any flaws in the execution. And yet there is still always something new, like the orange-leave-tree. And there are always some small details to love, like the 1x1 small round plates lying around on the right side, or the small mushroom, which just add depth and realism. Just all around amazing.

    The MOC is all around just really, really good. Nothing to criticize here, so let's start with the good things: The impression of a colonial age party comes around perfectly. The contrast between the crowded ballroom and the empty sideroom comes around perfectly - you can really feel the silence in the small room, and those light noises coming in from the conversations in the other room. The photography is spot-on and really transfers the mood. Well done!
  11. Really clever idea and very well executed to take the bow with those clearly recognisable flags. Lovely waves in the water, by the way!
  12. From the Fontonajo dockyard in Nova Terreli comes "La Descoberta", one of the largest ships yet to sail the Brick Seas. This Terraman with 26 cannons and its two decks gives room for more than 100 crew. It even provides some cages - both for exotic animals found on adventures towards unknown islands and pirates defeated in battle. "La Descoberta" will soon set sail to lead the Fontonajo family, the MCTC and Eslandola to new glory. Additional Pictures: Some details of the crew: I actually completed this ship a loooong while ago (more than two years). However I never found the motivation to post it here. Now here you go. Sorry for the lack of story... But for what I originally intended I should have posted it two years ago... And now I didn't come up with anything, unfortunately. When I started working on this one, I had class 8 in mind. Looking at all the other ships I think it's probably a class 7. A total of 26 cannons, and ~50 people (visibly) on board. Actually I am quite disappointed that I did not take any topshots or other pictures of the deck, or the lower deck, or the cages with tiger and jaguar in them, and so on... So many details have not been covered in pictures... I even took a lot of effort to build varied colour trans plates behind the windows, but you cannot see anything of that... well well, photographing this large MOC was quite an effort.. Whatever, no way to change any of this now, so here you go. You can see some of this on this WIP here, but that's far from the finished one: Edit: I have discussed stats with Capt Wolf and we decided upon the following: Class 8 Range = 5 Maneuver = 3 Guns = 6 Crew = 5 Cargo = 7 Hull = 4

    - Download some torsos which some great person created from some site (I think it was Bonapartes Custom Torsos somewhere here in the pirates forum) - In a decent photo editing tool (Photoshop, Gimp, ...), do a) Some color-editing, or add a button, or whatever you like to those torso b) Properly adjust the size / scaling - I use my HP 277dw Laser printer (multifunctional device for around 350 €, I assume any laser printer would do) - I use some random stick-on label paper (links see below) - Always make sure to have a test-print on white paper before! - Hardest part is actually cutting it properly with a random scissors - Then split the two parts of the stick-on label paper (usually that's easy at the edges, but as I cut those away it takes some seconds; finger nails might help here; be careful not to fold it too hard, that my harm the printing) - Then just stick it on the torsos To sum it up: Everyone can do this, hardest thing might be the color laser printer. Executing it decently isn't too hard either (I really am not an expert at precision engineering, but my results look fine). There may surely be better ways, better sticker paper, better ways to print it, to cut it, and so on. But I am not even sure if those ways would look better in large MOCs anyways... https://www.amazon.de/Herma-8634-Adressetiketten-Adressaufkleber-selbstklebend/dp/B000M249G2/ref=sr_1_5?__mk_de_DE=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&crid=14OFMBKCR0177&dchild=1&keywords=herma+ettikettenpapier&qid=1603728782&sprefix=harma+ettik%2Caps%2C188&sr=8-5 https://www.amazon.de/Herma-8637-Universal-bedruckbar-selbstklebend/dp/B000M249F8/ref=sr_1_6?__mk_de_DE=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&crid=14OFMBKCR0177&dchild=1&keywords=herma+ettikettenpapier&qid=1603728782&sprefix=harma+ettik%2Caps%2C188&sr=8-6
