I really don't like it. Because;

What outer wall of a fortress is red?
And why are there two different colors of vultures?
The wall is, blah because of the design.
There mostly bridge cities, but this could be on a plain, which should have some hills, not just base plates
The skipping of base plates
*note for staff* someone has to break free from the pack. Wink

No, it's not godly. You know what it is, a bunch of bricks slapped on a baseplate, with some minifigures and some vehicles. While it does rival most bricks on baseplate designs, the colors are off, there are no unique design principles present, and it DOES NOT RESEMBLE THE PLANET IN QUESTION.

Did I say again the bricks grind my gears Razz ? No structure variation, no plates used, no wall elements, no slopes, nada Mad .

Yeah sialboats that was pretty harsh even if you are. Battlefields don't always have to make a complete resembles to the planet and does the color of the walls really matter?

Errors aside, yes it was harsh, yes they do, and yes it DOES.

Saying this is Cato Nemoida is like saying my latest comic takes place on Kamino. It's a sign of apathy is what it is. "Oh, lemme just slap on a name instead of building for accuracy!" And color ALWAYS matters. For Christ's sake, what the bloody hell do you think makes or breaks a MOC: The arrangement of complementary bricks to resemble the desired subject, in an aesthetically pleasing manner; that's what! The bricks don't really resemble any wall I would imagine finding around any complex, much less one designed to protect against battle. And it certainly isn't pleasing to the eye, I mean, why on Earth would they paint it red *roll* ?

Sial, there's only like ONE decent picture of Cato Neimoidia! I mean it's relatively unexplored, so to say that the WHOLE planet looks like it does in that 10 second scene in ROTS is nuts. And those cities were not designed for battle, I mean for God's sake it was built by ARISTOCRATS, who aren't exactly up on the latest military spec... Roll Eyes... And not all cities are dull gray by the way...although I would've preferred a different color, but you gotta work with what ya got! Wink

Well, I just blew that argument out of the water Razz .

While we're looking at these pretty pictures -- I don't see any big red walls there. And if there were settlements outside of the bridge cities, why would they be the target of a major attack? Wouldn't Republic forces allocate their forces towards the MAIN cities, which are reported to be on BRIDGES. In fact, all the cities are on BRIDGES, because the cliffs outside of there are practically impossible to settle!

And you're right, not all cities are all grey. Some are built with marble, white stone, sandstone, granite, duracrete, varying woods, all sometimes painted mellow pastels, but never bright red. Even Geonosis's red clay wasn't that bright. And it's not like you give a backstory to make up for it.... Wink

For one thing, the first two are different angles of the same thing... And the rest are just inaccurate artists' concepts of what it might look like. And in the first two you can clearly see forests or some kind of vegetation on top of the ruins and...OH CRAP! I forgot to post the story...Laughing

It looks like that because it had to go past LA/LB/LF prior to them publishing a book with that as it's cover! Or releasing that as a render, or using that as concept for the actual thing. If given the proper bricks, I think the majority of us here could build a proper Cato Nemoidian landscape. By the way... how many cities have you seen on the top of a cliff, in the middle of a forest, that would be worth seizing Razz .

Umm aren't you forgetting someone? Rook could make this if he tried really hard. But sial has a point PM I think you should have gone with dark gary. Then take the gray base plates in a line like it was the very middle if the bridge and gone from there.


Ps. How many red bricks did you order again?

Dude that just shows that the magnaguards are like the deadliest droids out there. Just imagine if the CIS mass produced the magnaguards as the soldiers of their army and gave them all the weapons and abilities they have, it would be extremely expensive but just think what could have happened in the war.

Well for the Republic, instead of sending in ground troops, they'd just bombard the planet into slag...And one magnaguard is as expensive as like...1,000 battle droids...Laughing

The thing is pizzamovies the Republic would never go to such extremes just to take the planet from the CIS, just like in the episode Innocents of Ryloth, they didn't want to do anything to hurt the Twileks or destroy their homes, they would rather do it the hard way rather than the more easier and destructive way. I also know that the magnguards would be very expensive but all I'm saying is just think if the CIS had the money to make an army like that.
