  1. Hey Logitaet, welcome to Eurobricks! No worries about your english - it seems fine to me For the images, from the photo page I right clicked "open image in new tab" (so you get something like img2 . / etc etc .jpg) then pasted that URL here. Then if you hold "control" and right click on the pasted image, it gives you image options and you can resize it to something smaller. You might also sign up for flickr, as they make it easier to upload different sizes. Your shuttle looks good - it seems like a mix between 'playset' and 'UCS' as far as size and detail. The wings seem a little small in proportion to the body, but since you said weight is already an issue I can see why you wouldn't want to make them bigger. Here are a few of your pics - you can edit your post and see if you can add the rest using the method I mentioned.
  2. This was a tough choice! I vote for #9 and #13
  3. I actually just used a picture from brickipedia, so I guess we could ret-con it to be either you, Vaderfan or a nameless thankless officer of the fleet
  4. Doing my part to get us up to 10 entries! The serpent and the bird
  5. On a small planet, in the far edge of the outer rim, a group of Nediji mercenaries looking to make a name for themselves have seized an important tibanna gas refining facility. Imperial ground forces have assaulted the facility twice – and twice have been beaten back. The Empire would prefer to keep the facility, and its gas, intact, so rather than ordering a TIE Bomber strike, the sector governor requests the help of master tactician Grand Admiral Thrawn. Tell me captain, are you familiar with the Nediji species? No … Thrawn: I am not surprised; they rarely stray too far from their home system. Captain: Well, they seem to have strayed this time. Sir. Thrawn: So they have, Captain. The Nediji are a fascinating species. They are avian, and although they are no longer capable of true flight, they are astonishing jumpers and use their wings to glide great distances. They hunted every other flying predator on their planet to extinction thousands of years ago – and most of the land based ones as well. But there is one adversary they have never been able to defeat. Thrawn: This is a replica of one of the oldest known works of Nediji art – it depicts an unnamed hero, capturing a serpent in its talons. A serpent, the ancient enemy, who slithers into the nest at night to take the eggs. The Nediji have been fighting this battle since the dawn of their species. The message of this piece is clear, but look – see how detailed the snake carving is. The Nediji hate the serpent, but they also know him intimately. Thrawn: Here, we have another telling look into their psychology. Most primitive species create gods in their own images, and most of them create devils in their images as well. True, the devil figure is often a grotesque caricature of the species, but the species is almost always recognizable behind the mask. Not the Nediji, though. Their devil is a serpent, through and through. Thrawn: Finally, lest we think that this obsession lies solely in the past: a few years ago there was a Nediji film maker who saw some success making holofilms for human audiences. Her first hit was a monster holo. And her imagined monster? Not some winged beast. Not a tentacled space alien. The same ancient enemy. This is all very fascinating, Grand Admiral, but I fail to see what it has to do with our current situation. Thrawn: You fail to see, and that is why you fail militarily. Of course the Nediji defeated your ground troops. They have spent the last several millennia fighting, fearing, and studying the serpent. The serpent that slithers on the ground, and is killed from a perch. The Nediji are unprepared for an enemy that flies as well as they do. Send in your jump troopers. Have them deploy from a drop ship at medium altitude and attack the facility from above. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sir, we’ve defeated nearly all the mercenaries. A few are making a “last stand” at the top of the refinery, but our second wave of jump troopers are 30 seconds out. Our ground troops just landed unopposed on the beach, and have started clearing the refinery's interior. We’ll have control of the facility shortly.
  6. Two minutes have elapsed my Lord – his fleet is being obliterated, but still Prince Xizor remains silent...! Carry out my orders, Commander. Destroy the skyhook. Thanks to @Cody Startale for letting me use / edit his Skyhook picture for this shot! It was a fierce battle, with Black Sun fighting for their very survival, but in the end they could not withstand the combined forces of the Rebellion and the Empire. The Imperial forces dominated the scene, winning the Location Point bonus in all three sectors (Skyhook was very close, with Commander Beltar's 16.7 narrowly beating Cody Startale's 16.5). Sector Empire Rebellion Black Sun Sewers 6 (3 + bonus 3) 0 2 Palace 6 (3 +bonus 3) 2 1 Skyhook 5 (2 +bonus 3) 2 1 All builds earned a score between 1 and 10; the top 3 builds moved on to the second stage where they earned up to 10 more points. The final scores are: Skyhook Commander Beltar 17 Skyhook Cody Startale 17 Sewers LucasLaughing 16 Palace Merc4Hire 8 Palace Bregir 7 Palace Gubi0222 7 Palace Ryn 7 Sewers Professor Thaum 7 Skyhook Goatman461 7 Skyhook MKJoshA 7 Palace Kodan Black 6 Sewers Mediumsnowman 6 Skyhook VaderFan2187 5 Sewers Tariq J 4 Palace BrickmasterBen11 3 Sewers Brickwolf 3 The Imperial and Rebel teams will share control of Coruscant (for freebuilds), and each team may choose one unclaimed planet to be seized from Black Sun's control. Special thanks for @Bregir for helping to coordinate our first cross-RPG collaboration, and big thanks to @Professor Thaum and @mediumsnowman for joining us for this episode. We hope to continue to expand and grow this collaboration moving forward, so you may be called to sail with the Brethren of the Brick Seas at some point in the future. When that happens, we'll post an announcement on the SoNE forum. Black Sun has been defeated, but a final showdown between the Rebellion and the Empire still looms on the horizon. While you're waiting for the next SoNE episode, you should head over to Watto's Junkyard to check out the Thrawn Contest. The deadline is June 17th, and there are some awesome LEGO prizes up for grabs!
  7. LOL, I just now spotted the fuel tank theme I saw the Octan one right away, but I figured they were just doing some cross universe expansion...
  8. Sure, go for it!
  9. I think you maybe got mixed up on the date line? If you look at a time zone map, the last place it was June 3rd was Baker Island, which is 5 hours behind US Pacific Standard Time, so the absolute deadline for the contest would have been 5am on Sunday the 4th (Pacific Time). If you're in the USA, most of the rest of the world is a day ahead of us, not behind. We should be able to count your build as a freebuild, so you'll still get some XP from it.
  10. Hah, we're in the same boat, story-wise I like the Coruscant gunship - the color scheme works well, and I like that it's a little longer than the original. The Star Viper looks good - I think those Nexo Knight (?) slopes work well for that weirdly angled cockpit. The back seems a little square to me - I think the engines should stick out a bit more, but I'm guessing I only noticed because I spent so long staring at Star Vipers for that "mystery part" build a few episodes back...
  11. Interesting architecture (in a good way) - it definitely feels like some kind of utility area that would be found in a large palace, and it looks like there are plenty of places for an ambush. Great story as well.
  12. Wow. Amazing work here, Beltar - I feel like this is really using LDD to it's full potential. The skyhook is beautiful - very imposing looking, and I think you strike a nice balance between greebles and smooth bits. The micro Star Vipers are great, and I love the shots where the huge swarm of TIEs is approaching the battle. re: spoilers, I usually put an extra line above and below whatever I want to be in the spoiler, then highlight the whole thing and use the 'spoiler' button in the editor... you might have tried that already, but that's what works for me.
  13. I believe this build came in after the contest deadline, but you've still got some great details. I really like the leaking pipe, and the floor sloping down to the dark green sewage works well.
  14. Cool little tunnel - I like the details on the roof. I think another color might have worked better for the floor, but I suppose alien excrement could come in red and blue
  15. This turned out really well! Great action shots, and I really like the last two pics, where the rebels are down. Thanks for joining us for this episode!
