Hi,

here is my entry for the Hispabrick magazine contest "what does your storm trooper do after work ?"
My idea is that after suck a work of being under darth vador orders, the storm troopers likes to be quiet in his garden with a fine ale, a fountain and nothing to do but look after his BBQ.
Nevertheless he is mischievous, so his scarecrow and shrub are not usual ... ;)

A nice amusing scene. The grill and Death Star shrub are highlights for me.

Heh. Not bad. The fountain is well done. I like how you incorporated the base from the soccer sets.

He he.  That's great! :thumbup: The general idea of a Stormtrooper in a hammock is very fitting!

Hello!

That's a really funny idea! :classic: It's nice to see things of daily use modified with a Star Wars touch. :classic:

Cheers,

I like this Bayou!  :thumbup:

It's pretty detailed, which I like. The fountain, grill and Darth Vader turn this into a nice lil' MOC.

A good job you did there, the only thing I would recommend is the part of the grass which seems a little unused, adding some simple flowers or antyhing their would improve this MOC, in my opinion. Except from that, it's just a detail, very nice.

I'm probably not the first and not the last to imagine a trooper in holidays or having a rest... :wink:
