Quallon's Lead [JJJ18]

The Magic SOB forum is for posts of story sequences that are frequently vignette-based. Put those here while actual battle reports can go in Reports From the Field.
You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

Quallon's Lead [JJJ18]

Quallon pauses, taking in the wild flowers that the sprout along the mossy banks of the brook. The soft pink of the petals taunt him, acting as a painful reminder of that day, the day he was torn from his mentor. It’s been months since that incident and not a day has passed where Quallon has retired from his efforts. Though the trail has been cold for awhile, a new lead has led him to this planet and reinstalled hope in Quallon. He wonders to himself, “How could such a tranquil place potentially be home to such a sinister force?” The irony was not lost on Quallon.

Style – 8/10
I like the stark contrast between the minifigs and the bright peaceful background.

Substance – 9/10
The level of detail in such a small build is pretty neat overall.

Photography – 10/10
Pretty much everything here is on point.

Theme – 1/10

The minifigs are awesome, and I agree with Ken on the colour choices. The score would be higher but the terrain is a little weird. It looks kind of like the minifigs are walking on diorama that's smaller scale than they are, because the rocks look more like mountains than anything.

Substance: 7/10
While there aren't any extremely interesting techniques going on, the builds of both the base and mnifigs are good. I do think some more detailed parts for the plants would have done some good in terms of making the terrain look like it's at the right scale.

Not really much to say here, your setup is perfect.
