Category 20. Vignetted
This category is meant to challenge you to build small and detailed. NPU (Nice Part Usage) is a must as you try to make your scene as detailed and complex as possible. Quality vignettes will have draw-dropping details while not being too cluttered or busy. To challenge you even further, this category has a 16x16 size limit. Anything larger than that will be susceptible to DQ. No restrictions on the content.
Team " The Bricks Strike Back"
This is my first entry for the MOCathalon. I'm participating my first time. The size is 16 x 16.
Captain Switch and two ARF troopers are blasting a battle droid.
This was actually pretty fun to build. Mostly the rock formation, the exploseion and the railway, including the stairs.
I also filed on some techniques and so on, to make a round railway beside the stairs.
Another fun point was to get the poses of the clones. The right ones helmet and the left ones arm.
But why did u put them away? They were great! Did u actually throw them away in real life? What even made u put them in the trash? Also I think u should put them back up even if u don't like them anymore. Also if u ever get the chance could u please check out my Wolffe V5 the one with 3O likes. I would give u a link but I'm on my iphone
I personallt think whay you built here was quite well done. After reading the judges comments I think it would have scored higher if it had more casualties on both sides but just like mine you can only use what you have in stock!
On the down side, I think the SW subject matter has been overdone for some time now. Also, the landscaping was a bit plain. On the up side, I liked how you handled the wall element and the steps - that was quite nice. Score of 2.
Quoting Ian Spacek
I'm not exactly sure why you only have 2's on this, I think it's a great little vig! But oh well. I must confess I'm really diggin' your Star Wars MOCs! Great job!
Thanks a lot! All these nice words from a terrific builder and well known Moccer like you, make me very proud of the things I'm doing. I don't take care of the scores. At least I had fun at building and a few people are enjoying it. Thanks a lot Ian.
Too bad about the score. I think this is pretty good and nice part useage. But I think you are staying in your comfort zone. Although your SW builds are good, the MocAthalon sometimes expects MOCers to leave their comfort zone.
