  1. Thanks Ayrlego for the detailed response, the height and detailing of the building were actually the two main things I wasn't happy with, I unfortunately don't have any dark tan masonry bricks that aren't already being used in sets and I also don't own any 1x2 or 1x1 medium dark flesh plates. As for the base I hadnt really paid much attention to it until after I had taken the photos, now that I see what you've pointed out I will do my best to incorporate those techniques in my next builds. The marines were meant to look like the real life British marines however I'm not sure I like them, maybe they just need epaulettes and I'm glad you like the engineers. Thanks. Thanks Bregir, I too would like to build a rocket vessel, unfortunately I don't really know how to build a ship perhaps I should learn. I never really thought about smoke until you mentioned it and I really like the idea, I wouldn't really know how to create Lego smoke though, perhaps several dark bluish grey and light grey 1x1 round studs positioned at the bottom of the rockets stream? I'll figure it out by the next I use it. The artillery men do indeed work under cramped conditions however until they prove their worth that's where they will stay ;) As for the third build... well I was quite conflicted, it is an important part of the story but it's only real purpose was to test out some techniques I was thing of (the tents and the different levels of plates). Maybe next time I will give a build of this size its own topic but rest assured the story will be much longer. -Thanks

  3. "FIRE!!!!" yelled the artillery sergeant as the rocket burst in to the air. As the artillery men went about testing their new prototype rocket they were watched by Leftenant Gibson of the Engineers and Captain Bowles of the Royal Navy. The Army had already approved the prototype rocket for use but the Navy was rather reluctant. "I don't doubt their combat effectiveness Leftenant, but what are the chances they hit the rigging of our own ships, the potential damage is devastating" yelled Captain Bowles trying to be heard over the screeching sound of the rocket. "I understand sir, however the Navy already makes use of mortars on board ships these rockets wouldn't need to be positioned differently from them" replied Leftenant Gibson trying to sound as if he believed it himself despite the fact he knew it wasn't true. "Leftenant, I think it best we end our conversation here, I will not endanger our ships by fitting them with these machines, the potential harm they may cause us simply outweighs any harm we could cause the enemy. However I can approve your rockets for Marines when on land, Good day Leftenant." said the Captain before he left. The Leftenant knew he would never be able to get his rockets onto Navy ships so the marines were the best he could hope for, he let out a small smile while watching another rocket being launched into the air. Meanwhile Captain Fernsby had just landed and was headed to the rendezvous camp with Leftenant Miller, Leftenant Williams and Sergeant Davies. As he entered the camp he was greeted by three men none of which he had met before. "Greetings Captain Fernsby, my name is Captain Abbot, this is Mr. Bardsley representative of the ETTC and this is Leftenant Downer of the Royal Engineers. Apologies for the quick introductions but if you will please follow me, we have much to discuss before our departure in the morning." ____________________________________________________________ The first build is my poor attempt at mimicking Ayrlego's building style in Port Woodhouse, it will be licensed as a small educational using my free license. Any criticism is welcome as I would really like to improve my building style. The second build is the interior of the building as I found the first build a little bit lacking, its nothing really special but it was kind of fun to attempt the inside of a building for a change. The third build is to continue Captain Fernsby's story, it's completely unrelated to the Office of the Royal Corps of Engineers but I didn't think it warranted it's own topic and I don't want to fill it out as it's own freebuild as it seems a bit cheap seen as though I didn't put as much effort into it as I would have liked due to time restraints. Anyway sorry for my poor photography, I need a new camera its just whenever I go to buy a new one I come home with a bunch of new lego but no new camera. -Thanks
  4. [COR-FB1] Mesabi Landing, Fort Agravia

    Well I think the story is quite comical but very fun and entertaining, the build is good but I'd reccomend you texture the ground a bit more as its looking a little bit flat however apart from that everything's great.
  5. Next MCRA - Infos, Dates and Maps

    Well I'm new here so I might not be seeing the larger picture but I think we all just need to be patient, I often struggle to find time to build, it hard for me to imagine what the leadership has to do, not only do they produce high quality builds but they have to organise and run an RPG game and attend to real life duties, I imagine it's quite hard to do all that so a break is probably just what they deserve. To sum up be patient, there doesn't need to be a rush because everything will be ready when it's ready. Thanks leadership.
  6. Mercantile Wharf on the Colonial Expansion

    This is a really nice diorama, I particularly like all the different techniques you used for the roofs.
  7. The Empire of Oleon: Sign-up and Discussion

    Well I am a Corrie so I probably shouldn't be doing this however these are awesome drawings so I couldn't resist. I didn't have any Donald Duck legs so sorry about that, hopefully these will do.
  8. [MOC] LOTR layout WIP

    I think it looks great, especially since it's only your second moc. Good job, keep it up.
  9. The destructive war between Mardier, Eslandola and Garvey has come to an end with the complete withdrawal of Marderian troops from the island, however before leaving, Mardierian troops conducted a scorched earth policy, determined to leave nothing of value behind for the victorious Eslandolans. Left behind however, were the poorest of the poor, the most vulnerable and the most exploited. They turned to Corrington for help and happy to oblige Corrington was, the refugees have left their homes with all their belongings now set course for New Haven, located on the island of Alicentia. However during this journey they are vulnerable to those who would see them harmed and pirates, The Corlander authorities knowing the perils of traversing the seas authorised the construction of a fort in a New Haven, the burden of overseeing the construction of this fort in such a short period of time fell to Marine Captain Augustus Fernsby. The fort has been named Fort Montoya in honour of the man who secured freedom for the Marderian refugees. However Captain Fernsby will not be able to stay to see that the refugees arrive safely for he has since been recalled to lead an Expedition to the Mokolei Empire ___________________________________________________________________________________ Will be licensed as a Medium Fort Thanks
