[SWU (CW)] Ambush on the Ruins

Post by TheMissingPiece on Tue Jun 12, 2012 12:57 am

That's right, folks! TheMissingPiece is back to building! In his latest installment, he builds LEGO Star Wars!

In the middle of a desert planet, CIS forces are searching for a Sith artifact in some ancient ruins. However, The Republic learns of the artifact as well, and the race is on to find it! Two clone commandos inserted deep behind enemy lines flank the droids in an attempt to foil the CIS's plan.

Builder's Note: It has been a while since I last built anything. Now that my summer holiday has arrived, I have more time to divert to LEGO. This vig has actually been sitting on my desk for a long time; I just haven't found a use for it yet. For a while it was meant to be a post-apocalyptic scene, with zombies coming out of the sand or whatever, but I found that old CW has been sitting around for much too long and I thought I'd personally revive it. As you can see, I've gone with all purist on this one, although if you look closely you can see remnants of my old "Cu5t0m Cl0n3z" days. In terms of photography I decided to go with natural light since at the time of photography I really didn't want to mix natural light and artificial light.

Current camera settings (on my Canon Powershot A530):
ISO: 200
Exposure time: 1/30 sec
White Balance: Florescent




Thanks to my low ISO, I was able to make a pretty clear shot today.



My favorite shot of this set.








Thanks for viewing! Wow this thing looks

Okay, it's a bunch of plates and tiles thrown together with some minifigs. I'm sorry, but using "ruins" as an excuse is just a cover for lazy building. It's horribly unfinished and I can barely understand what's going on. I've seen your previous MOCs and I know you can do better than this, TMP. Sad

I sadly have to agree with this.

Sadly, I must agree too. Maybe a slightly better rating because it has some pretty cool poses and some details with plates that are decent but I must agree.

Well, I do expect more from you. I think what this really lacks is some structure; a center piece. I've noticed time and time again, that what makes good MOCs better than the rest, is a nicely detailed point of interest. Or the whole thing is just crazy-mad. Razz
