A magnificent ship from MrOutlaw, the "Admiral's Eagle" is made of 877 parts complete with a 5 man crew ready for battle at any time. The sides and top can be opened for access to the captain's cabin. The play doesn't end there! The prison cell is also accessible from the top and the ship sports two full size and 3 mini shooting guns as well as a working anchor winch.
Though originally intended as a building exercise for non-90°-angles, TitusV ended up creating a very nice fort in it's own right. The fort itself sits atop a rocky hill, surrounded by simple garden landscape. The angular walls of the fort come together perfectly and show of a nice technique for interesting castle and for design.
It's not every day you see a Miniland scale Pirates scene. Cesbrick has challenged the typical Minifigure vignette with this ultra detailed pirate and treasure scene. Not only are there numerous tiny details on the pirate himself, with tons of nice part usages, but there is also quite a bit of attention paid to the treasure and even the environment the whole thing is staged upon.
For the Battle of Waterloo 200th anniversary, michaelozzie has created a scene from the start of the battle. The Napleonic soldiers move into position in front of the Inn La Belle Alliance in preparation to attack Wellington's left flank.

The amazing angles on this little shack will get you wondering "How". Throughout the build, Legonardo has used parts in wonderful unintended ways. There are quite a few very nice close up detail photos in the post. All the strange angles in the build really make for a lively scene even though it has no live minifigures roaming.

Working together over email, Yatkuu and 6Kyubi6 have created two sets that fit together perfectly in style and function. The wrecked ship has been masterfully changed into a place for the remaining crew to live on Shark Reef's rocky outcroppings. The creations have a lot of great details from the pirates re-purposing parts of the ship, very much worth checking out the close up photos.

Legopard created this wonderful vignette to show off his new moldable water technique, but the whole scene is worth a closer look. Many amazing details in such a small space will make you wonder why you never thought to use parts in these ways.
