Not where I should be

As fellow judge, I would voice that extending it to the weekend will be a good idea. But those that have finished may feel different.

Regardless of that. Excellent work all,push through now. Remember when you finish you also make my life harder.

I am on leave this week, but life has stopped me repeatedly from getting my entry done. I would be grateful for the extension (although Friday would be my only extra modelling day ). I'll keep slogging away today and tomorrow to try and get my entry completed by Wednesday though

No objections yet to the extension. I'll wait a few more hours and if there are still no objections, the deadline will move to Sunday.

The public voting is also likely to happen as well, but there is still time to voice your opinions on that. I especially want to know if there is anyone who really doesn't want it public.

Keep going people. One last push.

Personally I want it public and a Sunday deadline makes far more sense to me!

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

Blargh. I have had no time nor inclination. I don't think I'll be finishing this one.

Hopefully the next one will spark my imagination. Also, I finally have my 3D printer, so I might be able to do more than before.

Right right. No objections.

Deadline extended to midnight (BST) Sunday 21st June.

Keep fiddling, touching up, and (nicely) photographing your entries until I get up on Monday morning.

Bare in mind that those not finished by midnight Tomorrow do not get the bonus point for finishing "on time".

Don't give up now, you're so close.

Sad to see you drop out, Anvildude. Better luck next time.

Ah, so sorry. Even with an extension I know that I won't finish in time, so I'm going to have to withdraw. I started way too late this time.

On the bright side, because of the theme, I did come up with an interesting idea and I will see it through. So thank you for that, Doc. I probably never would have done anything with those containers except use them as temporary storage bins.

Good Luck one and all.

Sad to hear you're dropping too, Red.

But it's good to hear that both you and Anvil' will continue the builds. That is one of the main aims of these contests (to get you to make "better" terrain).

Thanks Vik.

I'm off to bed soon. You have until I'm up and about in the "morning" tomorrow to get your entries in (this is likely to be about mid-day, so final 12 hours give or take a bit...).

I look forward to dissecting the entries from tomorrow. Did I say "dissecting", I meant picking apart... no, judging, that's the word.

That's it. Time is up. The fat lady is singing. Step away from the bench.

First of all, thank you to all the entrants. Even those of you that did not finish in time, your ideas and input have helped make this a successful contest and I'm sure many people (including those just following along) have learnt much from what has been discussed and shown throughout the last 10 (and a bit) weeks.

And another thank you to those that did finish. You have again made a tough decision, tougher. Cam' and myself will be pouring over all the details that you have worked on and we will endeavour to return with a decision as soon as possible.
As I promised in the OP, I will produce a full critique for each of the finishing entries and I can (if you want) post it in this thread or PM it to you once judging has finished. Just let me know (I won't post anything if you don't say).

To those that have not finished their pieces, I hope that you will continue to work on them and will show us all what your vision entailed.

I will be making a public voting thread soon, but here are your champions, doing battle for your pleasure and to claim the prize that they long for.
Show your appreciation for:

Kalend Thora eased back on the jump engines and pulled the Starknife out of hyperdrive. She looked down, as if her red eyes could see through the deck plates into the tiny packets of glitterstim that were stowed beneath. She couldn’t help but smile. Why risk bulk cargo when something so tiny had such a huge payoff? Even after her Vigo had taken his cut, she’d have more than enough to keep her old D-9 running like a rabid wamp-rat in heat and more to spare.


As the Folly lazed into view, she couldn’t help but marvel at the brutal elegance of the facility. You can keep your gas mines, your spacer stations and dust ports – give me solid rock any day. And this was exactly the kind of… independent operation that kept her pockets fat and her record clean.


2 hours. 2 hours at station keeping. I have a bad feeling about this. “Central, what’s your status?” she broadcast for what must have been at least the twelfth time. R3-2A chirruped at least as impatiently. “Yeah, I know Arty, let’s take a look around.”


The station’s turrets lazily tracked her. Well, at least we know something’s working in there. No escape pods launched, no sign of damage. A beep, a whistle. “Yeah, the lights are on, just not sure who’s home little fella.” She was starting to get twitchy.


Landing lights were on from the cargo bay on the surface – drop ship maybe? That’s not the Empire’s style.


Hutts, perhaps, wanting a piece of the action? That’d be a bloody mess - the Black Sun was happy for Erith to run his place his way, but they wouldn’t want another operation muscling in on the action. Mind you, a mess this far out on the Rim might bring them to Tarkin’s attention, and no-one wanted that. Clean and quiet – a coup then? An inside job. She grimaced, a sour expression on her lipless green countenance.


The ship lazed its way round the station; her R3 unit let out what could only have been a chuckle. “I know, I don’t know why the insist on making exhaust ports so accessible either. Serve them right if someone stuck a proton bomb up it.”


Generators are still running fine. Feels like a trap. “Arty, little buddy, I think we’re just gonna have to chalk this one up to bad timing. Looks like they don’t want us to come a-knocking. We can make Seler in 18 hours.” She moved to bank the ship away, getting an angry series of clicks for her trouble. “Yes, I know you were looking forward to that oil bath. Wouldn’t mind a bath myself, still trying to get half of Kessel out from my fingernails, never mind that the scrubbers are so shot the whole ship tastes of spice.” Silence. “Fine, be like that you big baby.” She punch the co-ordinates into the drive computer, almost too annoyed to ignore the nagging in the back of her head. Almost.


The comms burst into life, startling Kalend and making her reach instinctively to eject her precious load. “Thora you old lizard – that you out there circling my station like a hungry gundark?” Erith’s tones. Jokey, but forced. She could hear – not wariness, exactly, but something different. Still, keep smiling, keep talking – and keep running those numbers. “It’s me you two-cred son of a Jawa. Why the hold up? Been scrimping on the power convertors again?” A low hum from R3 let her know that one flick and they would be the other side of the light barrier. “Let’s just say I’ve decided to put this place to good use. Seems to be there’s a lot to be said for getting shot of the Empire and its cronies – better for business, y’know?”So he’s gone over to the Rebellion, has he? This time, the smile in her voice was genuine, “Well then, if it’s good for business, you’d better let me in then, hadn’t you?” And in response, the bay doors opened, welcomingly. Now that’s information that will fetch a hefty price. R3 peeped a question, and she flicked off her open comms to reply. “You bet we’re going in there, Arty. Things just got interesting.”

Hey everyone. Just wanted to say a big congratulations to the guys who completed their entries. That's an achievement in itself. My landing pad sits so close to finished, but just not quite there. Life sadly got in my way and I couldn't get it done in time. My last day to push to the end was taken up writing two scientific posters, two abstracts and a 20minute PowerPoint presentation about what I've been up to for 5 years in work ......

.....you can guess which I really wanted to do

If no one objects I would be very grateful if I could try and finish over the next week and post it here for comments. I'd be very keen to hear suggestions. You all have been very welcoming for my first effort and thank you all for your support. Sorry I didn't cross the finish line with you all, but I'll try again next time and fingers crossed I'll get it done in time.
