I built this 30x30 dio for the 'Empire Strikes Back' contest over at the CABG. The challenge was to portray a scene on Hoth with at least 1 Snowtrooper and 1 Rebel. I met those guidelines, but decided to take a more humorous approach. Enjoy!
Near one of the side entrance points of Echo Base on Hoth, some Rebel scouts make their way through the trenches. Thinking they have caught the sith lord Darth Vader, they call in to open the side entrance. Fatal mistake.
Wait for it...
"Sir look Darth Vader!"
"Call this in. Tell them to open the side entrance to the base, and say we've got a prisoner!"
Due to deep snow, battles fought on Hoth during the Clone Wars resulted in many casualties and MIA troopers..
Contrary to popular belief, beneath the frozen surface of Hoth, there are natural hot springs that make perfect places of rest and spas. It is a popular destination for criminals wanted by the Space Police.
Ice crystals, though not as high in mineral count as rocks, are still a nutritious part of a rock monster's diet.
I have more pictures available for viewing in my photostream here.
