Our Finest Hour


The Battle of Hoth will long be remembered as one of the Empire's finest hours as they successfully routed the Rebellion forces scattering them across the galaxy, desperate and on the run.

Here are the data files taken moments before the shield generator was destroyed by the AT-AT's.

Hope you like.

This is turning into a noice series, ISC.

Are you heading to Brickvention with these?
I'd love to add one of these scenes to your display if you are heading down..... I'm all booked!

This is beautiful!  I especially love the technique you used for the footprints behind the running Rebels. :wub:  That droid is easily recognizable as well.  I really love the clean look of this. :thumbup:

Are these footprints under the snowspeederbike?

The base is incredible, and the "not to scale" power generator are really nice and they fit well wwith the rest of the scene :thumbup:

Wow, the intricacy is perfect.  It's complex enough to make it interesting to look at but not over so.  :thumbup:

This scene always reminds me of, "Why do they call it Hoth? They should call it Coldth!" :wacko:

Great work. I like how the frozen surface is arranged, the way how the figures are arranged on the surface (looking very vivid to me, rather than looking static), the colour contrast of the dark-grey base and the surface (actually, the colour scheme of the whole scene is very attractive to me, but I would find it hard to explain why this is the case), and the builds, namely the generator and the speeder bike. The slightly left-looking Gonk Droids makes this scene looking so neat that I wonder if snowballs wouldn't be the more appropriate weaponry.

The speederbike ran out of fuel so the Scout trooper is using Flintstone power :grin:

Wow, this is great! The footprints, the power generator, I love it! :sweet: You've got a nice border going around it too, which could come in handy as a base for other MOCs.

Awesome MOC...it's nice to see a representation of the scene that doesn't center around the main characters.

This is stunning work I Scream Clone, i love everything about it! Every build and every part of the scene shares the same incredible attention to detail. Even the whole presentation is awesome. But the best detail for me has to be the footprints, those really made me smile! :wub:
