With all the work for Nar Eurbrikka, working on decals is not my top priority right now; still, I try to get the requests done at a somewhat satisfying pace. So today, I finished a face decal that was requested quite some time ago depicting beloved Return of the Jedi-sidekick Nien Nunb!
This decal should work well enough on a flesh head, I think, even though I didn't get around to testing it live myself yet. If I do, I may post some photos depicting this iconic Sullustan.
When I get a request, I usually check if there exists an official design, first. In this case, Nien Nunb's puppet was so unique and iconic that I didn't even bother to look it up until I was finished with my own version. I just used still images from the movie as a reference and made this entire design from scratch.
Checking Brickipedia, I then was surprised to find out that there was never an official Nien Nunb minifig released physically. There exists a face decal design, but it only appears in videogames so far. Also, I find it worth mentioning that this is one of the rare instances when I actually do like my custom design more than the official one. But since the latter has been around for a decade, it is, naturally, rather dated and nowadays, Lego would probably release a more sophisticated revision of it if they were to produce an official minifig. But then again, with his unique head, big ears and custom cap, Nien Nunb's head virtually screams for a custom mold... let's cross our fingers that Lego will create one someday. Until then, feel free to use this face decal and enjoy your own custom Nien Nunb minifig!
About a week ago, the 13th episode of the Nar Eurbrikka met its deadline and I submitted my entry. It both fulfilled the mission's parameter as well as continued my own story satisfyingly. Check it out in the Nar Eurbrikka section: Episode XIII – Quantum of Sunrise! Also, apart from the detailled Making Of for Episode XII, it is the first episode with a lengthy commentary – so make sure to check that out at the bottom of the comic page if you are interested in some background details such as the building time or where the episode's name stems from!
The continuation of Episode XII is finally online! The next big episode hosted by Nar Eurbrikka will soon release, so Part XII-I serves as an interim chapter to bridge the gap between both episodes. Head over to the Nar Eurbrikka section to read Part XII-I: Sowing The Seed!
I explained in Part 1 how I planned and prepared for Episode XII. Once everything was done, it was time to set up my Nikon and take the pictures!

After an unexpected personal tragedy throwing me off track in september, I'm back from hibernation to grant you a little behind the scenes look of Episode XII in the Nar Eurbrikka section today!
As I stated in the commentary of the episode, the shooting took approximately four hours – that included only setting up the stage and the lighting and taking the pictures, no building at all. Building my scene for the episode took place over the course of roughly two weeks, since I could only work on it from time to time after work hours.

Do you need a custom Lego design? Let me know what you have in mind and I will see what I can do! Just leave a comment underneath this post with your decal request and I will get an e-mail notification and reply to you as soon as possible.
Important: please do not request more than one or two decals at a time. Creating decal designs is a time-consuming process and everyone should get an even chance to have his/her request tackled by me.
Please make sure to use a valid email adress so that I have ways to contact you about your decal! If you don't use a valid email adress, your decal request will automatically be denied.
Now this is my first real, full-blown episode which will actually award me XP (hopefully)! Head over to the Nar Eurbrikka section to find out what challenges Cody faces in his first assignment for the Rebel Alliance!
Episode 0 of Cody Startale's adventures in Shadows of Nar Eurbrikka is online. Originally posted on Eurobricks.com as the character introduction, it was not judged as an entry, but I still decided to put it up here as an episode. It marks our hero Cody's first appearance in that Galaxy Far, Far Away, so it's quite a historic moment!
Curious about the Lego decals I have created? Navigate to the "Decals" section to find out more! Apart from presenting the decal designs I have done, I plan to also do some in-depth documentation about how I create decals. So if you want to find out more about the process required to have custom designs on your Lego bricks, stay tuned for future updates in that section!
So, to start things off slowly, I have created a character cast page for my Nar Eurbrikka roleplay. If you want to know more about Nar Eurbrikka – a Star Wars-themed Lego Role Play set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi – make sure to check out Eurobricks.com. Thinking about it, make sure to check it out either way, it's gonna be worth it.
Sometime next week, my first entry for a Nar Eurbrikka episode will be submitted. It will mark my characters' first real participation in the play beyond their out-of-competition introduction. Pictures will be up after posting my entry on Eurobricks, as per Nar Eurbrikka guidelines all entries must be previously unreleased.
