Great statue!  That 9" figure (or however big it is) is just right. A really neat touch!

Nice work paul, love the  details in the gate.

I would add some dirt/weather the statue. Its stands exposed in our dusty dirty town( remember mining operation town).

I love the cleaness of the black but it needs to be dirty.  Maybe even some place where the paint is worn/chipped off. Cause of people throwing rocks at it and such.( not everone likes the emperor  ;) )

Thanks guys. I got better at the foam board as I worked with it.

Since this is an imperial outpost, the imperials would keep the statue of their ruler clean and maintained. Imperials to me are very intense on cleanleness and order and that is the way they keep all of their equipment when they are not in a battle or in deep desert patrol for long time. I can see them having a couple of stormtroopers assigned to keeping the statue clean. In fact, I'm planning on adding some graffitte to the outside of the wall and having a stormtrooper standing there with a paint brush painting it over.

I've been very much out of the loop the past week due mostly to not having computer access.

The wall didn't come out exactly like I had envisioned but with all we've had going on lately, I think it's a miracle that the wall even got made!  I would have preferred to not have used the straws for design, but I know this was a pain to make Phruby, so thank you for stepping up and putting it together.  I really like the door way - great work on that.

The Palpatine statue looks good - for the base, I might suggest if on site tryting to rework that, as some of the edges look frayed from what I see.  I do like the concept though.
