No disrespect but your entry is really less then satisfactory, I'm no Lego expert, or that great of a builder myself, but really it just looks like a base with a load of minifigures positioned in cool fighting poses, there are some nice shrubs, but there is nothing that really makes it stand out, If you have the time, I would consider revisiting this and perhaps choosing a different scene, because I know Kashyyk is quite barren if your doing a swamp, though it may be realistic to the scene your trying to do, It's not very standout-ish.  I hope this could be of some help

I know. It's just that i didn't know what to do w/o official TLG vehicles (which I'm not very good at either) and wanted to focus more on my small and large entries. Consider this the worst, but don't worry, the small and large ones will be formidable.

It's a nice entry 'ThatGuyWithTheBricks', though I have to agree with sok117 that it's not that much of a build - just a baseplate loaded with fighting clones and droids and a bunch of rocks/plants on the side.

Looking forward to your 'formidable' small and large scale entries.

Agreed in that it isn't much of a build, really... mainly just minifigs standing around.
After hearing so much about your formidable small and large entries (for which only the best of the other entries will be competition, no less), I'm looking forward to seeing them.

The pictures are a bit blurry, but I like the first picture, it really grabs the whole scene in one shot.

A shame that "suggestions are futile".
This looks mostly like a baseplate with some figs thrown at it.
I think you ought to redo your entry and add a lot of bricks and plates.
Build an entry and if you do so, then loose at least half the figs.
Too many randomly inserted figs, make a diorama messy and hard to look at.
It's your entry though - and you're free to do as you wish with it.
I am merely making a suggestion.

I agree with KimT.
Maybe add some little bumps in the ground and lose at least half the minifigs, Right now it just looks just like your showing off you phase II clones and droids.
Another idea would be to build a small beach like there was in the movie with some walkers and wookies.
But the above are only suggestions.

Well, that depends, would I have to use a solid 48x48 baseplate for a large entry, or would I need any baseplates at all?

No, the 48x48 studs is just the measurement.
A lot of members haven't used regular baseplates in their entries - so of course you can build a base from either baseplates, plates or bricks even.

Do I even have to have a baseplate at all?

Your entry has to be on a base of either 16x16, 32x32 or 48x48 studs.
How you build/design that base is up to you.

Huh? The title is misleading now- It's just clones, who don't seem to be doing much. Perhaps it requires more improvment.

What do you mean? It's just before the battle now, the clones are preparing.

off topic:
please, don't understand me wrong, but -
After loads(!!!) of hot air, remember:
'If you open your mouth real wide (again and again), someone's going to put their foot in it.' (like me)

Or in other words, goodbye votes you might have gotten for your work, but won't get because of attitude.

So stick to your work, and less mouthing off. It'll pay off in the end.

'You have much to learn, young padawan.' :yoda:

Mods & TGWTB - apologies for stepping over bounderies.
TGWTB - go for it with bricks and not hot air - you have the potential.
(I'm not even taking part because I'm a real helpless dork when it comes to MOC's)

What are you talking about? Some one accused me of something and I was defending myself. I have a right to that, I wasn't even acting angry at all. Or is this about the cavegod shuttle thread? Anyways, I have no idea what you're talking about and am frankly confused.

...Oh. Still, it's not the battle for Kashyyyk. Perhaps if one of the mods were to change the title?

That's a better entry than your previous one. Though you could still improve it (it's still a WIP as you siad), hope your entry does well in the contest, 'coz there's lots of good ones out there. Best of luck!

Yay for late entries! (not really)

Deep in the forests of Kashyyyk, the 683rd legion prepares for battle.
Posted Image


There are clones in the treehouses, too.
Posted Image


Barriss Offee and some commanders discuss their plan of defense.
Posted Image


The droids arrive!
Posted Image


Although they have already lost many men, the tides are starting to turn now that Barriss has started to attack.
Posted Image



I'm done! I really enjoyed this contest and now I am proud of all of my entries. Now I don't even care if I win, the point is that I think I got a LOT better at MOCing now. C&C welcome.

Enjoy!

(Note to KimT: Please just lock the other topic. I pretty much started all over again, and i wanted a fresh, new topic without all the clutter of currently-unrelated comments)

Which is where you went wrong.
The rules are quite clear on this matter.
All entries are considered WIPs until the deadline.
Just update the first post of the first entry topic you've made in this category.
And then post, saying that you've updated the entry.

It's just that simple.
