Thank you everyone for your comments.
The Kraken took awhile to get the right look between the transfer of the main body mass to the tentacles. I still think it could use some smoothing out, but I basically ran out of black pieces
As far as the Ship, it is quite massive, and I think the pictures I Included did not show the full scope of the ship. It has a full lower deck for the slaves. The head and tale portion was important in making it look overall like a mighty mythical boat of destruction. I may post some more pics of the ship this weekend since people have been asking for such...
I have never made any castle-theme dios before, so I was a little at odds on the landscaping. The main thing I would change is the rock wall itself. I think that it doesn't have enough detail and looks fairly uniform. All the BURPs came from some Harry Potter sets
Thanks again for your suggestions/comments, much appreciated.
Cheers! ~ Paul.
