Using what I learned I next attempted an Imperial display:
One of the things I learned right away was that, once the thing was loaded down with figures, the sides of it become very noticable. You will see I detailed the outside of this shelf pretty heavily, and I plan to go back and add more texture to the Cantina as well.
This is a mish-mash of Imperial architectures, most notably the SD Bridge, with some Death Star walls thrown in at the back. I intend for this to be a base for another display, so I put the K-shaped wall pieces in as supports.
The big computer console at the back is removable; I plan to make a little window setup to swap with it for an optional Emperor's Throne Room right there.
I think I am getting the hang of these, and have quite a few more planned. Stay tuned, and thanks for looking!
