I've always wondered what the Forestmen sets would look like if they'd used brown instead of black. So I had a crack. Most of the pieces are available in Brown however I did use some Reddish Brown when it wasn't available. I also took the liberty of changing the Grey to Dark Grey with some of the details on the Camouflaged Outpost. There's still a couple of pieces which weren't available in any of the browns but that's okay, I'm satisfied. I did try to get pieces for the Forestmen's Crossing
but because the panels only came in a brown as the log finish, I wasn't interested. I probably could have built those walls completely from bricks but for the now, I'm content. It also gave me a bit of practice at working out how to get BrickLink to work for me the best.
I think when I originally had built these, I thought that they didn't look quite right but I have to say that it grew on me. They would certainly fit into a scene with brown trees a lot better than as they were.6054 - Forestmen's Hideout6066 - Camouflaged Outpost6077 - River FortressFlickr set
