Well, I first got Echo Base back in 2009, and I was very disappointed, a little trench thing, an in-accurate turret, and an e-web blaster, the figs and tauntaun were nice (minus the tauntauns "tatto") So I decided to start making things from the epic battle. It started as a couple of mods and mocs, but then I decided to stick it all on a little diorama for public viewing.
An overall shot
Lets start with the Atgar Cannon
Now the Moc
This one wasn't to tricky to design, I'd say that the hard part was attaching the disc to the rest of it, and still leaving that overlaping lip on the front.
Next the Df.9 anti-infantry battery
Now the MOD
what TLC always overlooked when designing this was the subtle slanting of the cone shaped cylinder, It' was a bit tricky designing it and I had to rip it apart and build it back several times to get it right, it involves some illegal connections
Next up is the Imperial AT-ST MOD
and my MOD
I mostly changed the guns on booth sides to more accurately represent those of the actual model, I also did lots of greeblying on the legs and added what look like the pistons used, also I tiled the roof to make it more light bley.
Now two pictures of the battle
My first attempt at a recent explosion,
I think it turned out okay, I plan on working on it a little more in future mocs.
And the Imperial advancement.
Thats it for now, C&C is always welcome. and more pics can be found in brickshelf folder when moderated.
