I know, I forgot to replace with yellow hands. But I like flesh, and sometimes mix them, as I`m mixing old and new grey :)

Great work!

I love the attention to detail. In particular, I really like how you've mixed old and new brown on the wooden garage. Usually this mixture comes off as being splotchy and unnatural, yet you've managed to make it look very good here. I'm also fond of the door and ladder on the roof. It's a minor detail but it really stands out. The chimney with its brickwork is also quite beautiful.

If there was one thing I'm not quite sold on it's the Francis Drake look-a-like figures. While some of them are quite good, The one with the 1x1 cones for legs seems too tall. I really like Martin Jaspers' original version however I find that by making the legs a bit longer the effect is lost. This is a small thing of course. Overall this is probably one of the nicest MOCs I've seen in the past few months.

Congratulations on such a fantastic build.

Great MOC! I love the legs of the temporary command table! All the other details are nice as well... : )

Thanks so much for sharing and God Bless,

A Renaissance MOC! Very awesome.

As others have mentioned, the combination of old and new brown works well here. I like the way you've made your doors, especially the large ones on the wooden outbuilding. The torsos are very well done, as are the cannons with their iron-reinforced wheels (just like the originals!) I also like the ramrod that the figure is holding, unless that's a fire-lance.

I really like your brickwork - how did you do it? I may try this myself sometime when I get enough tiles.

Very nice!

The inspiration was Warhammer`s Fantasy Battle faction - Empire. I especially love its handgunners and cannons.
But my dream is to build Empire`s steamtank.

Brilliant job. I love the details and the sheds. The cannons add a nice military look to it all.

I was gong to ask if you had based it on the Warhammer Fantasy Battle Game. Excellent job with the gunners and axmen.

How many links did it take to cover one wagon wheel? I am thinking about borrowing your idea.
