This has kept me busy for several days already. What to build for this SF campaign ?
I want to try my hand on the "expert" challenge - not that I'd consider myself an expert, though. That means an alien planet dio, at least one alien and a piece of hardware.
First of all, I decided to go for 1/35 scale. Once you have the "feel" of a certain scale, it's easier to scratchbuild in it.
What movie ? No doubt here. I think the Trekkies look too clean for a dio, and Alien (though I'm fond of it) leaves not so much room for creativity.
So it will be Star Wars for sure. Very colorful, well documented on their website.
What planet ? ... Aaah ! So much choice !
What species ? There's dozens in the database of www.starwars.com ! What
vehicles ? Almost just as many.
Then I got this crazy idea... Would anyone else on Armorama join in to build the SAME subject ? We could agree on one 1/35 vehicle and at least three creatures/characters of minimum two different species to scratchbuild. Pick a location. And just build that dio ! Everyone could build his own story, using the same ingredients. I can already see the "work in progress" pictures. If we start now, we can get this done before the end of February.
My mood is swinging from Tatooine (Wattoo's shop ? Lars' Moisture Farm ?) to Naboo (lakeside resort ?), maybe even Dagobah (Yoda's swamp) or Kamino (Tipoca city ? ).
Who would join in such challenge ? What would be a nice content ?
Or would you have suggestions for me what to build ?
Of course, all this would happen within the guidelines of the Sci-Fi campaign !
I look forward to your reply !
