[Q16-Tatooine-CS] Introduction Part 1

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all, this is my first post on factions, please let me know if I have titled this incorrectly.

This is my introduction for my character, Stu.

He grew up on Mos Greebla, a small settlement on the banks of Dune Sea of Tatooine, during teh early Imperial era. This place is located on the equator and is shielded by a mountain range, meaning the few monsoonal rainclouds are caught here, meaning it has moderate rainfall at some points of the year. This allows a few (planted) trees to grow. Because of the "idyllic" (by Tatooinian standards) scenery, it was a place where many traders on sand-skiffs would stop on crossings of the Dune Sea.

Stu had a job trying to peddle dehydrated water to gullible passing traders.

Mos Greebla was a unique place, and trade wasn't easy. Imperial forces would patrol the planet, as it was a place where many Confederacy of Independent Systems members sought refuge.

Again, I must stress, it was very unique place. We're still not sure what this local is doing.

Passing business also included travellers. . .

And Imperial forces. . .

As well as traders.

It was bustling little outpost.

Though it was lonely.

And at first chance, Stu left Tatooine to join the rebellion military, training as a medical technician, before joining Corellian Security following the proclamation of the New Republic.

Great stuff! Love all the story shots and the work you put into the plot. Great techniques on the builds themselves too, those walls have great texture. 

Welcome to Factions! Glad you're here!

I'm confused... Your story is taking place on Tatooine, but your entry says Devaron?

Other than that - really good first entry... ;)

The last picture shows Stu on Devaron... I was about to make the same remark yesterday, but after carefully rereading the whole...

Then this entry should be split into two separate submissions - one for Devaron and one for Tatooine.

I built this to end-up on Devaron. The amount of detail in the second build as a whole is close to the first part of the build, simply for better photographs I didn't include much else in this post. I also wasn't sure which planets would be best for the first part of the build, so I attempted to make the Tatooine scenes looks more forested and closer to Devaron. I was going to change the storyline so the first part of the build could've also been on Devaron , but then I wanted to avoid trying to alter Devaron landscape to be something its not.

Perhaps I might separate it into two builds, I'll just check which other planets the first part will suit beforehand.

I have now split it up. Thank you for the advice, and I will repost an enhanced second part of the build soon.

The Tatooine build looks great! Love the name Greebla as a nod to greebling. Your flat rocks fit very well and have good texture. I like all your skiffs, though I think the brown and dark bley ones would be better off a stud or two above the sand using trans-clear pieces. The left side of the build looks good with the dark tan plates and tiles bleeding off into the sand. But the right hand side looks like you gave up on the effort. The tan plates could have benefited from a variation in height or some more of the dark tan plates sprinkled throughout.

Thank you, I tried to think of a LEGO related word starting with E, to go with Espa and Eisley, but couldn’t and went with Greeble as it sounded best.

My original plan was to have a crashed X Wing on the right side of the build, so the plain light tan section would’ve actually added balance, but as I moved this build earlier in the imperial era I decided to drop that (pieces, or a lack thereof) also played a part. The brown skiff I kept lower as it doesn’t have a detailed underside like the grey one, but I see you point and I will add perhaps a tile or two underneath.

Nice build, I really like those rocks integrated into the landscape. The tree design is nice too!

Thank you
