Island Outpost

Postby soccerkid6 » Fri Aug 11, 2017 2:35 pm

This model was inspired by a LUG challenge focused around the Pirates theme. While I usually only make a few Pirates builds each year, it has always been one of my favorite genres. The one limit for the challenge was that your entry had to be no bigger than the largest official Pirates set. I have always been more attracted to the islands, forts, and land settings than ships themselves, so I settled on building a small fort on an island. A single 32×32 baseplate served as the foundation for the model.

For once a peaceful day with no pirates, or enemy ships in sight of the small Imperial outpost. Which makes it a fitting time to restock with some fresh supplies.

You've done a good job on the color and texture variations of the walls. I'm also intrigued by the two half-arches meeting at an angle, which I don't particularly reall seeing much use before even though I suppose it's been viable for years.

This is a nice little moc. I like the blue tile roof, wall texture, dock, water, 1x3 tile stairs, angled jail, and door handles. I have also used the yellowed bricks as accents for pirate fort walls. The technique works well. Thanks for sharing.

@Azaghal: Thanks! That configuration for arches does tend to go under used.

@architect: Thank you, Ben :) It was nice not having to worry about the use of yellowed bricks for this model :lol:
