Battle of Hoth Midnette - Epic Contest Entry

Post by DarthPineapple on Sun Jun 15, 2008 1:36 pm

Well, here it is. I tried to make it as accurate as possible, including the guns and the positioning of the figs. I only own 1 Hoth Rebel, so I made a second one with, for example, the Hoth Leia torso.

Overall (a bit blurry)

Gallery, in which you can find some reference pictures I used.

VERY nice! The SNOT use is fantastic, and I love the happy-go-lucky Rebel Trooper with the light repeater! Razz

The turret is awesome, and you got the power generator PERFECT! Two thumbs up! Smile

What battle to do...
I still have no idea what to do but
This is very nice, but I wouldve made piles of snow, like edges and stuff, the snow looks to...perfect.

Excellent point; it should have some white 'cheese' wedge bricks and some raised 1x2 SNOT bricks to make it look more official. Wink

How would we get white chesse slpoes. I need a few (a lot) for a project (and entire large gray baseplate covered in snow).

Good moc DP, agreed with the others about the snow, though you captured the idea well. The trenchs slopes were well done, good use.

The Y-Wing has a fair amount of White Cheese slopes.

As to the creation itself, I agree with Uber. Needs some piles of snow, a crater or suttin'. Other than that, nice work.

Not to mention the Joker's Ice Cream Truck... Razz

Look it up on Peeron. It'll show you all the sets that color of that brick is in. Wink

Thank you for all your very kind comments! I was proud of it myself aswell. Though if you look at the movie, you'll see that the space around the trenches is pretty flat, and as I said I tried to make it as accurate as possible.

And for the face - I actually liked that head on the trooper and... well... the others didn't look that good. Razz

Well, Rooks is pretty neck and neck with yours, but I thought yours was about 5% better Wink.
