    Faction: The Triumvirate

    The Imperial Triumvirate Faction: The Triumvirate (Imperial Remnant) Faction Leader: Darth Bjorn Headquarters/Capital: The Imperial Super Star Destroyer Resurrector (temporary) Planets: Daalang, Nanth'ri, Nixor, Molavar, Scarif, Rishi, Hosnian Prime, Byblos, Exodeen, Deysum, Fedalle, Castell, Byss Sectors: The Daalang Sector, The Eclorar Sector, The Abrion Sector Grid: Q12, S15, M12 Description In order to ensure our security and continued stability, the Imperial Remnants of a hundred worlds will unify under the Imperial Triumvirate! For a safe and secure society. Honoring the true imperial legacy, rising from the ashes, Tempered, Stronger, Reborn! - Supreme Moff Barthol The Triumvirate is an alliance of several imperial remnants all united under one banner. The Triumvirate is ruled by the three triumvirs, and ruling council consisting of high standing individuals of the imperial Triumvirate. The Triumvirs The triumvirs are the supreme authority in the Imperial Triumvirate. In some cases a triumvir has direct control of a specific department. The triumvirs each have their own agenda, but work towards the shared goal of an empire reborn. From left to right: The Crimson Duchess: A mysterious aristocrat and ruler of a hidden moon. Her previous loyalty to the late emperor has led to the creation of the Imperial Triumvirate. Supreme Moff Barthol: A battle hardened war veteran who served the old Republic as a naval officer, and later the Galactic Empire as a highly decorated admiral and moff. Moff Barthol led a highly secret mission into the Unknown Regions only to return to an empire in disarray. Grand Prince Serion: A former ISB Admiral and aristocrat hailing from Nacronis. In the final days of the Galactic Empire, Prince Serion played an integral part in Operation Cinder and the downfall of his homeworld Nacronis. High Command The current High Command consists of nine commanders each responsible for a branch of the Imperial Triumvirate (e.g. politics, commerce, military). The high command only answers to the Triumvirs and together with the triumvirs, they are the ruling council of the Imperial Triumvirate. From left to right: Grand General, Warlord Ral Hathe: Chief of the Army Grand Admiral Bryce: Chief of the Navy Moff Iax Draenar: Regional Governor of Core Territories @Gubi0222 Director Rovv: Director of Security (ISB) Admiral Gull Grand Moff Jarl Baston Kallus Moff Pantoloc: Regional Governor of Outer Rim Territories Grand Moff Huron: Regional Governor of Mid Rim Territories Admiral Gable Karius: Head of Inquisition @marvelBoy123 Retired members of High Command: Admiral Harr Sinier (Imprisoned, awaiting processing) Admiral Vori (Presumed dead) Officers: The Imperial Triumvirate is a large union of many different branches, departments, and agencies. Natural leaders, disciplined officers, and ambitious commanders are needed, in order to steer the union towards the shared goal of returning the empire to its former glory. You could find yourself among the senior commanders of the Imperial Triumvirate, leading the expansion to new parts of the galaxy, reclaiming former imperial worlds, or planning future covert military or diplomatic operations. Special Forces Commando Units: Necro Squad, also known as Reaper Squad, was an Imperial special forces commando unit. Commando units such as Necro Squad (and the treacherous Inferno Squad), was commissioned during the Galactic Civil War. These commando units usually consisted of four commando troopers with various specialties, such as demolitions and weaponry, slicing, infiltration, sabotage etc. Necro reported directly to Grand Prince Serion, who named the squad as a tribute to the doom of his homeworld. Elite commandos might find themselves in other special forces squadrons. Stormtroopers: The backbone and pride of the former Galactic Empire. Against New Republic sanctions against imperial military, the Triumvirate is still training and innovating the Stormtrooper Corps. You might be a veteran stormtrooper re-deployed to a young squad or one of the specialist scout troopers, patrol troopers, etc. The Army: The basic infantry of the imperial Triumvirate. You may find yourself among these grunts, recruited from young conscripts and volunteers, eager to serve the new regime that has united their worlds and brought stability in a time of uncertainty. These soldiers travel across the galaxy on expeditionary missions, spearheading the expansion of the Triumvirate. The Navy: In the fleet of the Triumvirate, you could find yourself among the naval troops, fighter or shuttle pilots, or even commandeering a star destroyer. The fleet is an integral part of of the Triumvirate dominion, and Star Destroyers often serve as base of operation. Ancillary Branches: The imperial Triumvirate is a well-oiled regime, you may find yourself among the supporting personnel that keeps the wheels turning. The Triumvirate ancillary branch includes engineers, researchers, and logistics personnel. Recruits of the Imperial Triumvirate HOW DO I JOIN? Send a PM to the faction leader Darth Bjorn, explaining why you wish to join the Imperial Triumvirate! Sign up now! The empire needs you! WHAT SHOULD MY BUILDS LOOK LIKE? As a faction rising from the remnants of the Galactic Empire and building on the same values, you should aim for a style that resembles imperial architecture, starships, crafts and equipment - like imperial garrison bases, imperial star destroyers or even AT-ATs and AT-STs. These could be heavily modified and improved since they might be salvaged or repurposed. Member of the Imperial Triumvirate should proudly display their allegiance to the faction. This can be done by adding small details as Triumvirate banners soaring above your moc, or your troopers wearing the custom pauldrons with the Imperial Triumvirate signet. In the grey bar below below you'll finde an overview of all the creative assets ready for printing to use in your mocs. WHERE CAN I BUILD? The Imperial Triumvirate is constantly expanding its territory. In the grey bar below you will find a map of sectors, systems and hyperlandes accessible to the faction. You are allowed to build anywhere in the Star Wars galaxy, but only by building in accessible systems can you earn IPs for your faction. In order to further the faction's territory, all members of the Imperial Triumvirate is encouraged to earn IPs for the faction. Members of the Imperial Triumvirate can build in any system, where the faction has control or a presence (green and yellow systems). Members can also build on any system along the green hyperlanes and green sectors. Power, Strength, Loyalty! Enlist today! You can sign up for the Triumvirate in this thread!

    [K11 - Byss - TT] Dark Legacy

    *Your entry has earned 21 XP* Excerpt from Cdr. Bannon’s log: The intel I uncovered on Scarif keeps unearthing secrets. With the assistance of a so-called Dark Side Adept, we decrypted fragments of something she called a Sith Star Chart. The map revealed the coordinates to one of the late Emperor’s observatories in the deep beneath the surface of Byss. I have few words for what we found. Even though I acknowledge there is more to the stars than meets the eye, I’ve always avoided the force. Here I was standing amidst the Emperor's deepest secrets, and once again face-to-face with the Emperor's sorcerer Lord Vader. Although by the looks of it, only his suit. This dark figure still gives me the chills. Red crystals, scrolls, and other ancient junk. Cdr. Bannon’s log - continued: The writing on the screens is gibberish to me, but maybe I can find a translator... Cdr. Bannon’s log - continued: Junk or not. Some of these relics intrigue me. I may just bring a few for further study... Cdr. Bannon’s log - continued: Our guide has served her purpose - no loose ends… *Bffwwbbzzz - sound of a red figure powering up* Sentinel Droid: Commander *grrzz-tttzzz*. Operation: Resurrection is to begin at once. *grrzz-tttzzz-tchk-tchk*. Lure the gaze of the galaxy away from *tttzzz-tchk*. Disrupt any attempts at establishing *tttzzz-tchk*. You are but one of many tools by which the new order *tttzzz* shall rise. Heed my messenger. He shall *grrzz-tttzzz-tchk-tzzzzzziiiiiiuuuu - sound of the figure powering down*. Cdr. Raath: The freck was that?! Cdr. Bannon: I’ve heard rumors about these messengers. They were a part of the Emperor's last command, sent to high ranking officers, after our loss at Endor. Seems there were more than one last order… Cdr. Bannon: Make sure we get the intel in the messenger, and the systems. Maybe we can download it into one of those protocol droids. I have a feeling there’s more to uncover... /// I've had this one in the backlog for awhile... I really want to explore more of the Emperor's secrets. After TROS i imagine his excellence had a lot more up his sleeve than just Operation Cinder and an escape to the Unknown Regions... Let me know what you think, and let's see if you can decipher the hidden messages and easter eggs... ;)

    AT-PT

    The AT-PT, fully known as the All terrain Personal Transport was a bipedal, all-terrain light infantry walker distinguished by its triple-jointed legs and one-pilot cabin. It's armed with two twin blasters located below the viewpoint. It's slightly armored to withstand small blaster fire.They were design before the start of the Clone Wars and utilized during the Galactic Civil War, a galaxy-wide conflict between the Galactic Empire and the Rebel Alliance.They stood only three meters tall, and were driven by AT-PT pilots.
  4. *Your entry has earned 11 XP* Well known for it's orbital shipyards, Kuat is a prime target for the Alliance. Believing the planet to be relatively undefended given recent rebel activities in other sectors, the rebels launch a surprise attack. Still, the shipyards were still defended by three ISDs: the Viceroy, the Impermanence and the Ring Guardian. With all fighters deployed, the rebels must take down the shipyards before imperial reinforcements arrive...

  5. One of my favourite Disney movies from my childhood was Atlantis: The Lost Empire, I loved the industrial machines and the cartoon art style which was like a comic book and enjoyed the story and its characters a great deal. Set in the early 1900’s, the film follows a young linguist named Milo Thatch who dreams of one day fulfilling his grandfather’s dream of finding the lost city of Atlantis. I recently decided to fulfil my childhood dream of designing a full range of sets based on the movie in the style of official LEGO sets, all in LDD. I have a total of 6 sets finished so far and will be posting them here one by one from smallest to biggest, I hope you enjoy them! 01. Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire, The Shepherd's Journal The hero’s journey begins when he is approached by a mysterious woman called Helga Sinclair who introduces him to Preston Whitmore, a billionaire industrialist who knew his grandfather. In his office Milo is given the all-important artefact to begin the quest: The Shepard’s Journal, which includes maps and clues which only he can read which will guide an expedition to finding the lost city. This small set marks the beginning of the adventure featuring: - Preston B. Whitmore, Milo Thatch and Helga Sinclair minifigures - The Shepard’s Journal book - Printed tiles representing the portfolio papers of the expedition specialists and crew - A miniature model of the Ulysses, the massive submarine which the expedition begins the journey on - The fireplace, fish tank and a globe from the office as well as several small statues and other artefacts in Whitmore’s collection. The model contains approximately 105 pieces. 02. Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Sub Pod The expedition starts off aboard the Ulysses, a massive submarine, but is soon attacked by a gigantic mechanical sea monster known as the Leviathan. To defend itself the Ulysses deploys many small submarines called Sub-Pod’s which are armed with torpedoes to battle the monster. Features include: - Gaetan "Mole" Moliére and Vincenzo "Vinny" Santorini minifigures - 8 flick-fire torpedoes mounted on the two main fins of the pod which can also rotate - Opening cockpit which can fit both minifigures - Spinning propeller The model contains approximately 194 pieces. If you like these models please support them on LEGO Ideas here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/151747 and here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/151758 Thanks for viewing!
  6. This is my very own Tantive IV Main Corridor with Airlock Doorway MOC built of LEGO bricks: Served as an Alderaanian Diplomatic Cruiser, the CR90 Corvette TANTIVE IV played a central role in the events at the beginning of the Galactic Civil War, serving as Princess Leia Organa's personal starship in the leadup to the Battle of Yavin ... Tantive IV Main Corridor features the iconic round shape design for the walls, including very accurate wall-cubes and the iconic shaped side columns, as well as a smoothly sliding Airlock Doorway, that reveals an indicated Imperial Hallway behind to recreate the Borading Assault by using a pretty clever technique. The Hinge-mechanism allows you to get better access to the Corridor, and serves as a switch, so you can either close the Corridor, or open it which makes it easier to take shots of scenes with minifigures and reenact moments from Star Wars: A New Hope or Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. The entire build is extremly sturdy which allows you to grab the whole build without falling apart, and every detail is securely locked in place. You can follow me on flickr or take a look at more Star Wars MOCs of mine: https://www.flickr.com/photos/the-creatorr/ What do you guys think?

    At-St (Movie Accurate)

    This is my ATST MOC. It has 597 pieces, is in mini-figure scale, and has every detail I could Pack in at this scale. While designing this I aimed for two things: show as little studs as possible, and full movie accuracy. I haven't seen any other mocs that meet both my goals as well as this one and I am very happy with how it turned out. The build is sturdy and well built for playability. It also has movable joints that can be adjusted for different poses. The head can rotate AND turn, something that I haven't seen in any other mocs. The hatch opens, and it comes with a full interior as well:The part where the head connects to the legs is one of my favorite parts because it was a challenge to design:The legs were also interesting to build because having them skinny and still movie accurate was hard.And the neck joint was probably the hardest to figure out because i had to make it rotate and turn, like shown :Here is an image of the bottom and right side:It also comes with a stand to help support it. The stand can rotate and turn to adjust to any angle you might pose it in: Here is a picture of the prototype i built. I dont have all the pieces needed at home, so it looks a little rough. But, some people requested to see it so here it is! This MOC is for sale. You can buy the instructions on: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-41267/AWproductions/at-st-movie-accurate/?inventory=1#comments
  8. There are many AT-AT mocs. Many with great interiors. Many with great exteriors. This is my attempt at integrating both into one model. The model is minifig scale, has at least 6000 thousand pieces and stands two feet tall. It is stable enough to be picked up and moved. Another rebuild(plus head redesign) in the books by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr Features -Articulated head area -Removable panels to reveal interior -Lights throughout inside -Motorized deployment cables -Speeder bike garage for 4 speeders -Two floors with seeting areas -Gun/backpack racks -Cockpit area with seating for two pilots -Sliding Side Doors Side View: The complete scene has been reconstructed. by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr Rear View: IMAG1033 by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr Head: IMAG1037 by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr Full Interior: IMAG1019 by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr Speeder Garage: IMAG1021 by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr Top Floor Seating Area: IMAG1023 by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr Bottom Floor Front Area: IMAG1026 by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr Bottom Floor Deployment Area: IMAG1028 by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr Top Floor Access Ladder: 2016-08-07_10-36-53 by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr Troop Deploying: 2016-08-07_10-27-42 by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr Cockpit Area IMAG1030 by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr Assault on Hoth!: Assault on Hoth by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr The AT-AT at Brickfiesta: Another brickfiesta in the books! by Jhaelon Edwards, on Flickr is a youtube video detailing all the features of the model, including the motorized deployment cable. Check my flickr for progress photos starting from the first LDD files. Special thanks to Cavegod and LILmeFromDaFuture. I got a lot of inspiration from their models/techniques. Let me know what you guys think. Sorry for the cell phone quality pictures. Would buy new camera but can't stop spending money on lego parts ;). I'm considering distributing/selling the LDD files for this model if there's interest. They do need some refinements, however.
  9. *Your entry has earned 8 XP* "For too long the republic has failed to provide safety and prosperity! Remember how you prospered! Remember how you used to feel safe! This I promise you, citizens of proud Byblos! You will prosper again! You will feel safe again! This day is a great day for the citizens of Byblos. On this day we celebrate the first class of graduates from the Byblos City’s reestablished Imperial Officers Academy. On this day we celebrate our Imperial Legacy. On this day we choose to be Imperial!" /// I've removed the ugly from this build since I did not get to incorporate it in the build. For all intent and purposes consider this a free build...
  10. *Your entry has earned 20 XP (x2 for limited challenge)* Cdr. Bannon’s Log: Scarif has been a somewhat heated conversation topic among high command as of late. Even though not unanimous, Scarif has been decided as a strategic priority for the Triumvirate expansion. I’ve taken it upon myself to inspect Cdr. Voluth’s mining operation in the former Aurek-14 excavation site. Most of Aurek-14 was buried in a mining accident around 0 BBY. If my theory is correct, Aurek-14 should still hold some of the best kept secrets of the Tarkin Initiative. Personally I’d like to have a look myself. An inspection is the perfect cover, and the perfect opportunity to test my new Eta-2 TIE Interceptor. Cdr. Voluth: Commander Bannon, we are honored by your presence. Cdr. Bannon: You may dispense with the pleasantries Commander. I’m here to inspect the mining operation! Cdr. Voluth: I assure you Cdr. Bannon, my men are working as hard as they can. Cdr. Bannon: Good... And the salvage operation? Cdr. Voluth: We have managed to salvage roughly 200 containers of kyber. Cdr. Bannon: Excellent! Shuttle the containers to my ship immediately. I will inspect a few other sites before I return to my ship. Commander, I want daily reports on the operation. Cdr. Voluth: Of course sir! Sometime later... After inspecting a highly classified area of Aurek-14... Cdr. Bannon’s Log - continued: My suspicions were correct! The secrets buried on Scarif may very well hold the key to restoring the glory of the Empire! This information cannot end up in the wrong hands. I’ll personally make sure to deliver this intel safely... /// A closer look at the Eta-2 TIE Interceptor (ugly). The starfighter is a crossover of the Jedi Starfighter and an original TIE fighter, with a few upgrades. Like additional engines, weaponry etc. I know I have a lot going on in this build, but I didn’t feel like removing anything. The moc is supposed to be a cut-section of the mining canals seen in Scarif concept art from Rogue One. Spend a lot of time on the rockwork and the orange tram that slides on the rail… I hope you enjoy it… :)

    [MOC] [LDD] ION CANNON

    Hi After checking out the so called " cubistic ion cannon" in the new UCS Echo Base set I decided to give it a go and try to create a more worthy design. Here is the result: What do you think? Is it any better? Let me know what you think. Also, If you want to help raise attention to this please support the idea in lego.ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/140111 CHEERS! Thanks!

    [M10 - Sarapin - TCR] Traitor’s End

    *Your entry has earned 21 XP* Mission Log from Cpt. Bannon: Our original mission was to ensure the imperial energy supply from the drilling platforms on the surface of Sarapin. However, things took an unexpected turn, when we received a direct holo transmission from Moff Barthol. Barthols number one agent, Lord Amus has revealed that Senator Belrus is in league with the New Republic and that he is secretly scheming to undermine the Commenor Remnant. Personally I’ve always felt that Commenor has been a little too lenient with the New Rebuplic. Sometimes you’ve got to wonder - what happened to the glory of the Empire? Log update: We have received word that the treacherous Senator Belrus is in fact on Sarapin. How convenient that he is meeting with the administrator overseeing Sarapin mining. We have been instructed to rendezvous with Agent Amus and his men on the surface in order to capture the senator and return him to imperial custody. A few moments later on a landing platform at the Sarapin mining administrations headquarters… Cpt. Bannon: Senator! STOP! There’s nowhere to run! You are under arrest for treason against the Empire! Administrator Shatul: Kill hime! Kill ze traitor! Agent Amus: Sure would save us a lot of paperwork! But... Our job is to bring him in. Belrus: Yes! I surrender! Take me back to Commenor… I demand to talk to High Command! Cpt. Bannon: Right awa… Agent Amus: Would you like a cup of Jawa Juice as well? Your imperial rights was revoked the moment you sided with the Republic scum! Take him away! /// Phew! This one took some time, but I really feel my patience paid off. All the rock-work, lava and the platform has been done using SNOT technique, and the walls have been tilted. Let me know what you think! Any feedback and comments are welcome. :)
  13. *Your entry has earned 14 XP* Mission Log from Cpt. Bannon: After the successful apprehension of the treacherous senator on Sarapin, I was invited to an audience with the Supreme Moff Barthol. Having nothing but reverence and respect for the Moff, I anxiously accepted. Onboard the Imperial Super Star Destroyer Resurrector Moff Barthol: Welcome young Bannon. We have been expecting you. We are looking forward to you joining our course in uniting imperial remnants. In time you will see that our ambitions are the same. Your service for Commenor has been noticed and we will grant you the rank of Commander in the service of the Imperial Triumvirate. Do you accept? Cpt. Bannon: Your highness, highnesses, It would be an honor to serve, restoring the glory of the empire. Prince Serion: Good. You will be reporting to us directly and act autonomously unless otherwise instructed by us. You will have men and a star destroyer under your command to carry out your missions. Go to the Nixor system and await further instructions. /// My first attempt to add lights to a MOC. Hidden underneath the holo table I've placed a LEGO smarthub powering four LED lights. Below you'll find a few behind the scenes shots. Let me know what you think. :)
  14. *Your entry has earned 18 XP* Mission Log from Cpt. Bannon: As a part of establishing a diplomatic presence in the Core Worlds, the ISD Relentless is hosting a delegation of high standing members of the Chiss Ascendancy. Me and my crew have been tasked with showing our guests the inner workings of the Commenor Remnant fleet. We will do everything we can to display the hospitality, efficiency, and the supremacy of the Commenor Remnant. The Chiss is known for their skills in hand-to-hand combat. A skill also honored among us imperials. As I suspected they wanted to break the ice by testing ours against theirs. A test I looked very much forward too. Hopefully our guests will see the benefit in a strong alliance between the Chiss and us. /// Let me know what you think! ;)
  15. *Your entry has earned 8 XP* Somewhere on the desert planet Molavar... Sr. Stormtrooper Sergeant, TK427: I don't get it son. Every night you clean that armor. Y'know the remnant ain gonna give two pieces of bantha pudu... Cadet, TK1144: I don't like sand. It gets in everywhere! /// Sorry for the quick build, I wanted to get something out before I go for a short vacation.
  16. The Harrower-class Dreadnought is for me one of the most appealing Star Wars ships. This Star Destroyer type is the capital ship of the Imperial Navy in the game "Star Wars The Old Republic". The LEGO version is based on the cinematic model rather than the in-game version. You can see the ship in the "Return" cinematic trailer ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mm4JEZudf0c ) or in this picture ( http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/0/05/HarrowerClassDreadnaught-EGW.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20120425024504 ) Final shots Bigger pictures can be found on my Flickr Specifications: Length: 75cm Width: 41cm Scale: 1 : 1067 Weight: 4.3kg Parts used: about 5700 WIP shots After a couple of months designing it’s time to build the ship completely. Normally I would just post final pictures of a MOC, but since Star Destroyer ships are pretty popular I thought I would show WIP shots of how I constructed the Harrower. WIP 1 The first WIP shot shows the main frame of the ship. It was important to make the main frame very strong since the ship is going to be heavy and stands on just 2 feet. Therefore there are horizontally 3 rows of technic bricks which are all connected both horizontally and vertically resulting in a very strong frame. The sections that stick out all have a rotation joint at the end making an angle of 15 degrees which happens to be exactly the angle I needed for the Harrower. Later on I will connect frames for the wings to these joints. These wing frames will also be supported by the technic bricks that stick out below the rotation joints. WIP 2 The second WIP shot shows one of the wing frames (the other one is mirrored). Each wing frame is connected to the rotation joints of the main frame via the joint socket liftarm parts (the white parts). The top left corner picture is a close-up of the frame. The triangular frame has an angle of about 10 degrees which I needed for the Harrower and incidentally match with the angle of the 12 x 3 wedge plate. This is ideal to build the back (the engine section) later on without too much gapping. Another advantage of the triangular frame is that it’s very strong. WIP 3 In the third WIP shot the two wing frames are attached to the main frame. I added a layer of plates to the wing frames to make them sturdier horizontally and to make them a bit thicker. Note that the build is already flipped upside down to proceed to the next stage which is building the bottom and attaching the display feet. WIP 4 With the frame done it becomes a bit more exciting because now I can start building stuff you can actually see when the ship is finished. WIP shot 4 shows the bottom wings of the Harrower which are constructed SNOT. The good thing with the frame is that you could also choose to build a hull in the more traditional way with plates and wedge plates, because the angle of the wing frames match with the angle of the 4 x 2 wedge plate. I chose to build it SNOT, because I like a smooth effect for this scale. As you can see I also used the old light gray parts (also yellowed ones) to give the ship a bit more worn look. WIP 5 The fifth WIP shot shows the bottom with hangar bay which is constructed as one piece. It is attached to clips near the green parts that can be seen in WIP shot 4. The bottom is also held in place by the 2 x 4 tiles all around. It took a lot of time to figure out how to make this section work, because it is here where the two angular wings meet. WIP 6 As you can see in WIP shot 6 the feet are attached and the ship is turned upside up again. Before building the upper wings and the bridge section I added the engines and a couple of side sections. I had to improvise the engine section a little bit since there are no good reference pictures of the back of the cinematic model. All I could see in the trailer of Star Wars The Old Republic were 2 big engines with each 2 smaller ones beside them. The rest of the engine section is inspired on pictures of Star Destroyers. Note that the in-game version of the Harrower has quite different engines: 2 big triangular engines. WIP 7 The seventh and last WIP shot shows the addition of the upper wings and sides at the front. This was relatively easy because technically the upper wings are a copy of the bottom wings. Only the bridge section (which is similar in technique to the bottom) remains to be added before the Harrower is finished.

    [N10 - Foundry - TCR] The Can Can

    *Your entry has earned 22XP* Mission Log from Agent Amus: Ever since battle of Endor the imperial presence on colony worlds such as Foundry has been sloppy at best. Even though the Republic has declared Foundry a member of the state, they have shown little interest in anything other than the aristocratic and political districts of the planet. In their ignorance they have ignored the real power of Foundry. The industrial underworld. Mission log - continued: I’ve arranged a meeting at the cantina known among the locals as the Can Can. Clever nickname for a place that is supposed to look like it is run by droids. Mission log - continued: My intel suggests another individual is running the place. Running most of the underworld on Foundry actually. Inside the Can Can... When the music is playing... The bar has anything from blue milk to Merenzane Gold... Wealthy guests drinking Merenzane Gold... Sore looser... The street outside... Someone trying to remain anonymous... Staying warm in the Underworld... Phew. I finally got to post this one - I wish I could have paid more attention to the wall-work and stuff like that, but the build just took way too much time - and I wanted to move on. The diagonal walls was a real challenge - but cramping loads of details in this one was really fun... Let me know what you think! Below is a little peak behind the scenes, and close-ups...

    [S15 - Molavar - TCR] IDS Incarcerator

    *Your entry has earned 9XP* Mission Log from Cpt. Bannon: After retaking our base on Dennaskar, high command has tasked us with rounding up additional rebels and insurgents from surrounding systems and escort them to the top secret IDS Incarcerator orbiting the backwater planet Molavar. These prisoners are supposedly an important part of Operation Stronghold. The Incarcerator was the last of its kind of Imperial Lictor-class dungeon ships. After the loss at the battle of Endor, warden commander Col Gran hid the IDS Incarcerator in the Outer Rim. Commander Col was eventually contacted by Admiral Rovv and convinced to join the Commenor Remnant cause and remain a secret known only to Rovv and a few high standing members of the remnant. The IDS Incarcerator was a highly modified Lictor-class ship, designed as an inescapable supermax prison. All prison cells onboard the ship has two entrances. One leading into the ship, and the other towards the empty vacuum of space, with only a ray shield keeping the prisoners from being sucked into oblivion. A little peek behind the scenes... Let me know what you think. :) Cheers

    HMS Argonaut, 38 gun frigate, WIP

    Hello dear ship-builders, I wasn't active for a long time now. Some of you might remember me from building the "HMS Bulwark", a 74 gun third rate ship of the line. It was in March, when she got a new bow. I never really liked the old one, way too angular. Then I came across the quarter saucer base (30201) of the 1998 Stingray Stormer (6198-1). It perfectly fitted the desired shape. But now for my frigate, probably being named "HMS Argonaut". She will become a 38 gun fifth rate frigate. More pictures can be seen, following one of the flickr links. Supposed to be a sister ship to the Bulwark, I think about changing the white stripe back to yellow. What do you think? Also for similarity I will probably keep the windows on her stern. They may look to big, but I already tried smaller ones and have to say, I like the current ones better. I hope to progress faster than last time. It mostly depends on me willing to buy the needed bricks. As for the rig and last details, I already have the ideas. So far so good. I hope you all continue to have great joy reassembling bricks into sightworthy constructions! Wellesley.

    [M10 - Kuat - TCR] The Commenor Treaty

    *Your entry has earned 7XP* Mission Log from Senator Belrus: In light of recent epidemic breakouts on Kuat, The Imperial Remnant high command wants to cease this opportunity to establish a presence on the planet. Due to new republic allegiance, the remnant has dispatched a stormtrooper platoon to an abandoned imperial facility in the polar region of the northern hemisphere. I have arranged to meet the regional archduke at the facility under diplomatic immunity. The Archduke: Good morning senator. We’ve considered your proposal. The epidemic breakout is currently contained to slums and lower levels of dense urban areas in our equatorial regions. It seems like the epidemic doesn’t take to the cold - why I imagine you chose this location for our meeting… Senator Belrus: *pokerface* The Archduke: Since the republic’s health organization has been unable to show any progress in fighting these outbreaks, the Kuati aristocrats have decided to declare a state of neutrality for Kuat. We’ve signed the Commenor Treaty allowing your presence on the planet and ring. We welcome your assistance as long as you comply with the Galactic Concordance. Senator Belrus: The terms are acceptable. We will sign the Commenor Treaty. The Archduke: And one more thing Senator. No bucketheads! Senator Belrus: *nods* Some behind the scenes shots: Let me know what you think! CC are more than welcome... ;)
  21. *Your entry has earned 7XP* Mission Log from Sr. Lieutenant Vascal: Hokey religions and ancient weapons has always been a passion in my family. So much so that the Remnant high command has put me in charge of a reconnaissance mission following a lead on a forgotten Jedi shrine. The lead has brought me to the harsh backwater world Ambria. Day 1 - I arrived in of the only settlements on the planet called Natthami Outpost. Settlement is a big word for what is basically a few dilapidated sheds and tents huddled together. Shortly after my arrival I was approached by a hooded figure known amongst the locals as one of the “Natthas Ee’k”. The waste pilgrims. This mysterious wanderer seemed to know the lands well enough and agreed to be my guide against a fair contribution to him and his brethren. … Day 16 - I’ve learned the name of the wanderer is Bur Eth’n. He’s lead me to what seems like an entrance to an old imperial facility. This is highly irregular since our records show no signs of imperial activity on Ambria. I am not even sure the Empire knew of its existence. I will report my findings before I proceed inside... /// I'm trying out some new techniques - at least they are new to me (; - and I'm happy with this small build. I've tried to capture the toxic/harsh landscape of an alien world, as well as experimenting with snot and angled/tilted walls... I hope you like it... As always, here's a few sneak peaks behind the scenes...
  22. Being a huge fan of the Expanded Universe, which I grew up with as a kid, I decided to create the super star destroyer first seen in the 1997 PC game Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2. It also has been used in some mods for Empire at War, which was another great Star Wars game, enjoy! https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Vengeance_(Vengeance-class)
  23. *Your entry has earned 15XP* Mission Log from Cpt. Bannon: Our second mission to Dennaskar was to regain control and if possible recover my former squad. We tracked the attackers to the back entrance of B Dock, an old imperial facility, where the outlaws had set up an ambush. We were prepared. Two squads of stormtroopers and an AT-ST neutralized the attackers. The survivors have either been captured, or escaped deeper into the forest. Our casualties have been minimal. No sign of the missing squad. These outlaws seems to be a breakout cell of the former rebellion against the empire. I will try to get more information out of the ones we captured. It will not be an easy task to get these scum to talk subjugated the Galactic Concordance. Hopefully they are not aware. Until the leadership advice I will continue my investigation from our new base of operation. Cpt. Bannon commands and leads his troops into battle... The outlaws are making a last effort... The first squad of stormtroopers supported by Cpt. Bannon's death troopers... Troops behind cover... Star Destroyers above Dennaskar... Some behind the scenes photos: Let me know what you guys think... :)
  24. *Your entry has earned 6XP* Mission Log from Comdt. Danus: The occupation of Uquine is going as planned. Most of the resistance has been pushed out of the cities. We have seized control over most former imperial assets in all major urban areas and established checkpoints at all spaceports. For a week I have personally inspected the checkpoints with great success. We have apprehended more than twenty individuals suspected of crimes against the Commenor Remnant. Latest a Twi’lek smuggler trying to get a crate of datachips through checkpoint 4227. I have yet to uncover all the data on the chips, but the initial sweep suggests connections to CorSec. I wonder what they are doing so far from Corellia. This is not the first time we incarcerate a member of their affiliation. Comdt. Danus: Miss. You are under arrest for trying to smuggle unregistered cargo of Uquine. You will be put befor a tribunal. They will decide your fate. Take her away. Cdr. TK-571: Yes ma'am. Sirs. I kindly ask you to remove yourselves from this sector. This is imperial business. Move along. A little peek behind the scenes:
  25. *Your entry has earned 9XP* Cpt. Bannon likes his surroundings as simple and clean as possible. No distractions. Clean as a whistle, and efficiency above anything. A little comfort and the occasional blue milk or brandy doesn’t hurt. Some time before… Lt. Markland: Cpt. Bannon. These are your junior officer quarters. Your belongings have already arrived. Lt. Markland: You will find the elite personnel manifest on the data console. Let me know if you need anything. I’ll let you get settled. Good day Captain. Quarters description: This is the quarters of Cpt. Julo Bannon onboard the Star Destroyer, The Relentless. The standard Jr. Officer Quarters comes with sleeping quarters with a small workstation and storage. Additionally the quarters are linked to a personal refresher with standard refresher interior, a sonic shower and additional storage. On rare occasions, distinguished officers are allowed some degree of personalization. In Cpt. Bannon’s case this includes a vintage lounge chair and a few collection items.
