Lots of you have been posting big MOCs filled with a million different battles going on at once. Whilst this is ok if you can get the detail in a lot of you are sacrificing quality for quantity. My advice for next time would be to do one small fight scene but really make it stand out by throwing in as much detail as possible.
If you want to see an example of this then just look at Fritz K's entires :)

Might I also suggest looking at some MOCs made by those higher up in skill. This will give you some idea of what I personally look for in an entry.
I want to see well built pieces with a clear understanding of what's going on. If you are in a forest then make it clear you are in a forest. If you are in a frozen wasteland filled with purple bunnies, whatever. Take your time on the landscape to make your location clear.

The only reason he said that was because J Man was the best builder in the group, a fact that Duncan and I frequently pointed out to him

He was ONE OF THE best builders in the group. There are a few others who come to mind. I won't name anyone in particular though.

I did not mean that as an offense, I am just stating yes, that my entries got some of the best ratings by the judges in the group due to my effort and attention to detail and so forth, so I admit that mine are some examples of good builds that I was proud to post and can be used for ideas and help in your own builds.

Ok, I have a question, since there was obviously some people who didn't see the setting clearly; without adding anymore pieces, since that was almost all of my brown pieces, is there any way I could more clearly have built this http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/328440 to show that it is Kassyyyk, up in the tops of trees, section cut off a ledge of the walkway around the tree with a small landing pad off of it?
