What do you want in a fort?

Post by Burman on 11/13/2010, 5:38 pm

I have been planning to build an Imperial fort during the last couple of months. I have been searching for real life examples as well as examples of official sets. I have found that even though many come close, none contain everything that a fort would have.

The official sets often contain many good features which should be included but they are not complete.


These sets have mostly been small outposts with a couple of large port sets in the range. Looking at these you can see how these would work together.
We have also seen some brilliant MOCs which gives us a good example of what we can put in our own.


I would like to know what your perfect fort would contain. The rooms and features, as well as sizes. I am sure it will help not only me but many others who wish to make their own fort as well.

It needs a winch,a jail and definately a port.As for size,I think a 48x48 blue base plate is good enough.The only pirate set i have is the imperial flagship,so im not really in a position to say what a good fort is,but i think what i said was decent.

I have a suggestion: Don't use the older pirate sets; they are older, harder to find and more expensive. If you have both the old and the new, try not to mix them. The color will not be right. If you can find pirate sets on sale, or on BL for a decent price, I would go for that.

For me a fort would need a port and a harbor masters office. A main fort with cannons a tower and a winch and a house type building for the governor. I would also need several small fort/outpost buildings like 6266 to protect the fort.

A fort needs a nice arsenal Evil 2 ........
A lot of times, to make a good LEGO one, all you need is four walls, lots of cannons, and a flag. Grin
As to what I would have in mine, it depends on how historical I want to be. You could folllow exact plans, or build parts of one, like TLG. Classic Smile

no they arent. A quarter is an area of a ship, whereas an office can be anywhere.

I don't really know if this has been said, but on the side of a cliff there should be a little hole for a cannon, and an underground bunker where the soldiers man the cannon

I suggest a kitchen and a storage room.

I don't think you should take TLG sets as examples, because they are very small and unrealistic; their design is poor if you seek something beyond playability.
