I am not a skilled lego player (it should be obvious) but it is fun to build (which all of you should agree), so here comes a Star wars Hoth related MOC, a bloody one as I am trying to illustrate how unfortunate the Hoth Rebels have been.

That is really very clever.  I had never thought of that technique, but it is very clever for depicting blood in ice/snow.  As simple as this is, it is actually one of my favorite techniques I have ever seen.  Great work on this!

wow I really like how you did the blood in the snow it looks really good. I really like the faces you used for the minifigs especially the hurt minifig he looks like he's in real pain. The technique you used to create snow is really well done and gives it a sense of volume

Nice mod.  At the risk of being a bit repetitive, I do think you're very clever & innovative with the way you did the blood.

Thanks to all for the kind words, I look forward to explore on other ways of creating a good blood trail effect, I believe that there must be a better way used by someone somewhere

Actually, that's the best technique I've seen for that anywhere. :sweet:

You ARE a skilled lego builder, you just proved it in this MOC.
I love the face that you used for the fallen Rebel soldier and your ice/snow technique is great.

It is funny though that some folks left notes in my Flickr photo saying that the wounded guy looks constipated...   :laugh:

this is very good and horrible at the same time. You can really feel the pain of the soldier, very nice.

I really like the trooper in the background that apparently got blasted during this scene.  Pretty much that exact scene happened in the movies.  Good work.  I like how you really froze an action moment.
