    Thanks guys! I toyed with making this with real bricks, but the cost of chrome plating a bunch of random parts really mixed the idea. I’ve been working on an Ideas Pirate build for the last 6 weeks and I keep getting things that won’t quite fit the idea: (this building is one, so was the chapel and the cheese shop).
  3. @Count Vroskrithanks for the shout out! You know I like this build! The separate interior helps because I tend to make exteriors compact and interiors too busy, roofs frequently get in the way, especially on ships. I’m also tired of having to make the interior AND the exterior clean/seamless, and of course having to delete/cut a hole for the camera or light to see the interior. This is one of the major advantages of the modeling programs.

    [SR - FB]Scandal in Mesabi Landing

    Thanks for the kind words everyone! Had a lot of fun with this build. @Mesabi Glad you enjoyed it! I like the place you have in the world... East India Co-like, even raiding settlements. @Bodi the red coat in the warehouse was supposed to be from the ‘suspicious soldier’... the idea was he called in the report, posed as a redcoat and absconded with the milk. Notice he’s the behind the counter in the Fromagerie build!
  5. One last free build for February. I've been wanting to build a silversmith for a while, the Studio chrome selection, luminous colors, sticker function, and latest Ideas Blacksmith gave me all the pieces I needed. I clearly love this form of landscaping. The house is inspired by the Fromagerie build. Inside the workshop. A master absorbed in his work. Let me know what you think!
  6. Entirely unrelated to the recent scandal in Mesabi Landing, a new cheese shop has opened in Bastion! Serving the finest aged goat-adjacent exotic cheeses!
  7. Earlier today in Mesabi Landing, one of the city's major dairy producers was raided today by a Corrie platoon. The authorities had received an anonymous tip about health code violations at the site. Upon breeching the door, the Corries were nearly as shocked as the workers. No cows on site; dozens of different mammals had been kept in inhumane conditions to be milked for public consumption. Corrish troops seized and destroyed the stockpile of 'milk'. Several animals also took part. Although "ILK" dairy sells hundreds of liters of milk, Corrish authorities found the nearby storehouses dry. Authorities have issued a recall for all dairy products from Mesabi Landing and are offering rewards for further information on the missing dairy products. OOC: I was inspired by an old Simpsons episode. Let me know what you think! In unrelated news, a new fromagerie has opened in Bastion!

    [OL-FB] Frigate HRS Leopard

    Both ships are wonderful. A serious number of parts and rigging to get two sixes out at once!
  9. Old World Troops would be a nice addition, they’d have to be super expensive to upkeep and take several turns to reach their destination. Of course, the SR might need some help if Old World armies become a thing...
  10. It's been too long! This build started as an Ideas project: I wanted a small chapel for an island town. The stained glass got more and more complicated so the chapel kept growing. Given TLG's hesitation to build religious structures, I decided a large chapel wouldn't cut it. But the chapel would fit well in BoBs, so I added a graveyard, fountain, procession, and here we are. Originally, this was supposed to be a nod to the old Imperial Armada line... note the color choices, crests, etc. Let me know what you think! This was originally going to go to the side of the chapel, but it was just too ornate... so I moved it to the town 'square' Recognize the names? Interior shot of the stained glass and congregation Back of the church. One of the most frustrating things from Studio for me is stickers... I love customs, I had to photoshop it in. It turned out okay, but would have been better with a real sticker on real bricks. Final shot. You can find more on my flickr

    Organizing pirate minifigs

    @evancelt I never liked the toy soldier torso, but that photo is changing my mind. @natesroom I have torsos organized in a clear plastic jewelry box, blue soldiers, red soldiers, Spanish, civilians, pirates, natives, and females. Legs are all together in a bin, but the decorated ones are in the jewelry box. Heads are organized into clean shaven, facial hair, native, pirate, and female. Weapons, epaulettes, headgear, and utensils are piled together. I think the best question for organizing it... are they reasonably safe from scratching? Can I find/assemble any pirate within an acceptable time frame?

    [OL - Sistership] Executioner II

    Remind me, what happened to the original Le Fougueux? How can such a wonderful ship be sunk? How can such a wonderful ship even be rebuilt?

    I like the cutaway to see the inside, very clever. Even as a Sea Rat, those workers don’t look very trustworthy...
