Made for an contest at the Clone Army Builders Guild. 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.

Sorry couldn't wait for the gallery to become public, so I've deeplinked all pics.
This way You'll get comments on details as well.
I like it :thumbup:  :thumbup: The use of SNOT really adds a great smothness to it.
Also great use of minifig heads and nice design of weapons.
You might consider replacing the 1x6 tiles with 2x2 and 1x2 tiles instead.
The long ones have a tendency to make it look a little like a white painted wooden floor. Using different tiles will "ruff" it up a bit IMO.

I can just imagine those with the 'Hoth Base' set.  :thumbup:  :thumbup:  :thumbup:

x6 of those, 2 AT-ATs, a few snowtroopers and the Hoth Base set would make a good basic battle of Hoth.
My favourite part of your midnette are the technic connectors used for the electrical pipes!  :sweet:

I really like the great gatling gun/cannon.
Connecting the technic pins together works well too!
I echo kimt in that the 1x 6 do look a little too ordered for a snow battlefield, smaller tiles ,some raised up or down would look much rougher.
Well done :classic: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Thank you for all the comments! I agree with the 1x2 tiles, though I don't have many of those. I used a very big part of my white tiles to just make this.

Maybe adding a few of these might give it a little more textural feeling:

Just an idea.

Awesome midnette DarthPineapple. I really like the SNOT look of it but you could add some rocks (small ones) and it will looks more realistic  :classic: . Good job  :wink: .

Post #200 finally  :laugh:  :cry_happy: .

Why that? The rule was to make a midnette on a 16x16 base.

Hey DarthPineapple!

Your midnette is really cool  :thumbup: It looks really accurate to the movie scene and the design of your gun-tower is really well done, too.
As said, the idea of using Technic connectors for power cables is great and smaller tiles would make the scene look somewhat more natural indeed, but I like your scene anyways  :classic:
