[SoNE Freebuild] Overhearings on Nar Eurbrikka

Recommended Posts

After the disgraceful events on Bespin, the star destroyer Avenger has stopped at the Hutt moon of Nar Eurbrikka, awaiting its next mission. I found this brief time perfect to drop by the Imperial Outpost on the moon, and spend the credits I earned upon my promotion in the Imperial navy.

Imperial Officer: Welcome, pilot. We have heard of your brave actions on Bespin, it's a shame that the battle was lost. I also should congratulate you on your promotion.

Artizan: Thanks, officer. It is a shame indeed. I am here to make some modifications on my TIE fighter.

Imperial Officer: Ah, I have to tell you that we cannot do such modifications here, it is against the imperial regulations. You may, however, want to check the local junk dealers around here. I bet they have the parts you are looking for.

Artizan: That will do.

Toydarian: An outlander! How can I help you? Tell me what you are looking for, I have everything!!

Artizan: I am looking for a hyperdrive to upgrade my TIE fighter.

Toydarian: TIE fighters are not designed to carry hyperdrives, you know, but I have something special here. It is a class-2 hyperdrive, which will fit on your starfighter. I have to tell you, it is pricey. Have you got the money to pay for it?

Artizan: I have enough Imperial credits.

Toydarian: Credits!? Imperial credits are no good out here. I need something more real!

Artizan: Look, take these credits, or I'll have your pitiful shop closed by the imperial garrison.

Toydarian: Ok ok, take it easy. Credits will do fine.

As the junk dealer went on to prepare the hyperdrive parts, I overheard two Rodians talking about imperials. They must have assumed I did not know Huttese, as they were not very careful with using their tongue.

Rodian 1: These imperial scum make me sick, they are everywhere! They make the business go bad.

Rodian 2: I agree, brother. I lent a stormtrooper some money, he said he would pay it back after he returns from a mission on Tatooine.

Rodian 1: You fool, what have you done! He won't come back, I tell you, don't make any deals with the ones going to Tatooine, they are all going to perish.

Rodian 2: What do you know?

Rodian 1: I have an associate on Nar Shaddaa, he works for the Black Sun. He said something about a trap on Tatooine, which will devestate both Imperials and Rebels. In fact, I am going to see him today. I have to go now, I have a meeting with him in a Nar Shaddaa bar, I don't want to be late.

The Toydarian returned with the parts, I paid him the money, and quickly followed the Rodian thug's ship to Nar Shaddaa. I don't know what awaits me there...

The TIE looks better than original. Does it have enough space to place there a minifigure?

Yes, it does.

lThis looks great! I like the clear seperation between the base and what's beyond. The wall looks very good (although with that big gap, I have my doubts about its efficientcy). The best part is probably the sewer, with the toy soldiers base and the green flames. Looks very toxic. It's a nice metaphor of how the Empire sickens err... nourishes... the planets it occupies.

Too bad you can't help us out here on Tatooine. But I see greater causes call you!

Nice build! :thumbup: My favourite part is the sewer & scrapyard section. The TIE looks great too, and I like how the build slopes downward from the back to the front. Good selection of minifigs too, makes the build come alive. Great work!

Nice MOC! And the first of Nar Eurbrikka if I'm not mistaken ... I must say I'm not too fond of your small TIE, it looks too small for minifgis. The tower looks too much like airport tower and doesn't have the SW feel. Everything else is spot on. I like the wall, the sewer pipe is aslo nice and the swamp is very well made!

Nice MOC! I especially like the sewer. You've chosen a good color scheme!

And the first of Nar Eurbrikka if I'm not mistaken ...

It is actually not the first one by far, there had been some 5 already :)

I really like the way you built the swamp/sewer. Elevating baseplates over the plants was a great idea. Great story too. I really like the reversal of the Ep.1 Toydarian encounter.

Thank you for all comments and criticism.

Well, if I used the regular minig scale TIE, I would have to build everything else big, too. For the tower, I was inspired from a Star Wars game, Force Commander, the Imperial command center in the game has a similar tower:

I love how well you were able to integrate some more basic bricks and some more <insert that tiresome argument> elements, and they all work together so well along with the layering of different parts of the landscape. This fits right in with what I've always thought part of Nar Eurbrikka might look like. :wub:

I love the landscaping outside the base, especially the sewage pipe and swamp!

Looks quite non-toxic to me however, since the plants seem to thrive there...maybe all the waste of the Empire is not toxic :wink:

I love that sludge pipe and pond, both help integrate the transition between the imperial base and the black market slum!

Also of interest: the hilariously short fuel line and the ewok glider canopy which really settles in the tattered feeling of the market.
