I love it! The walls seem a little plain, without much colour or texture variation, but the basic shape and details like the cross are awesome. I also love the inside (even the bible with a magic wand on the side :P).
Any chance of putting people in, or since you're star warsy is that a bit impractical if we don't want a few anachronisms?
There's not supposed to be a Majic wand by the bible
Whoopes. I just got the closest part I had to a Writing.
I Actully have the walls plain on purpose to be honest. I had a feeling it would come up, and I'm sure others will say the same, But, at least for this MOC, I wanted to keep it somewhat simple so I wouldn't put myself. If anyone has any Ideas for suttle variation in the walls feel free to post your advice, I may look into it.
Adding Minifigs is a major and easy possibility, I may do that in due corse if I can find some that I think look right
I'm considering hinging the wall somewhere, so that the whole building can open in half, But we'll see how that goes if I try it

Looks like a nice start to a theme you don't usually do. A couple easy notes of advice:
- Try some wall techniques to avoid "big grey wall syndrome" via here: http://www.classic-c...iggraywall.html
It has some tactics like wall color variation, texture variation, shape variations and ways to break up the wall surface to make it look more interesting and real.
- Try some roof overhangs. It's more realistic and looks nicer, and is very common rather than flush with the vertical wall surface. That is, overang it on the sides and the ends, AKA the gutter ends.
- Got a green baseplate? It makes the MOC look a bit dull when all is one color. A green one means you can add details like small hills, grass, trees, flowers... maybe a cemetary, bench, etc. Walkways are another option.
That's all I have for you for now, although there is lots of "How-To"s at Classic Castle that you can browse when you get time. Have fun.
Wow thanks for that
Lots of helpful stuff. I'll change it To green baseplates next time I change it a bit
Might try the Cemetry Idea and so on too
