Great Job on this build Frisky! The rockwork is really nice and that roof is awesome!
By mixing 1x1 trans green plates with the tiles it looked to me as if the swamp was bubbling.

Happy Building,
Sir Valiant~

Thanks! Is is good or bad that the swamp seems to be bubbling?

I think its great. It goes with the feel of the MOC. The colours are darker, the twisted tree, and the minifig is hooded as well. Its kind of like an old shack next to a mysteriously green bubbling swamp. Fits the atmosphere for the 'secret hideout' category for the CCCX in a great way.
Keep up the good work!

I think the white windows look a bit odd given the other colors here. But that's kind of a minor nitpick on a very nice MOC.

I agree with you on that. I wish I had some more appropriately colored shutter pieces, but I only have white. :(

At least you made do with what you had ;)
I agree that white wouldn't have been the best color, but it doesn't look bad. I really like this MOC.

I think the base and rockwork are very well done. Great job!

I love the base and rock work as well. I am in the same boat as you with the shutters. I only have white an only if I steal them from my daughter!

About how many parts did you use?

This is very cool! I love the 'small' scale, it makes it look really great :D
