Don't Hassle the Hoth

Recommended Posts

The AT-ATs are FAR from the right scale. Actually, the big Ertl kit is closer to the right scale compared to the snowspeeders. Regardless, I love what you've done so far! I look forward to seeing a battle with these. :)

That's AMT/ERTL's fault, the scale of everything is a bit wacked in that diorama kit. I have the same one sitting waiting for me to paint up. I kind of think the Action Fleet AT-ATs might be a good scale if you can find them.

DB iI look forward to seeing how this project goes. Will you be doing up al, the turrets as well?

Yes I plan to do up all the defensive weapon platforms and infantry.  The thing I like most about this set is that it includes all of these components.  You could always represent some things with markers but 3D models really do enhance the game for me.

For me .. this is porn. Well done sir!

I recall that kit form my younger years. How many did you buy? Also, if memory serves me correctly, you might be able to convert the x-wings (their s-foils are down yeah?) into Z-95s if you so desired.

Yes .. I LOVE LOVE LOVE what you have done!

I bought 3 sets of "Battle of Hoth Action Scene" which supplied the AT-ATs and all the infantry and defensive weapons.  It had one AT-ST per set so had to get the Micro Machine version to have enough and it looks much better.  I also have the "Rebel Base" set which has a transport and MF. Both sets have the snowspeeders.  I guess there is no need for Z-95 conversions as we will all get these available soon.

 

Model dimensions:

 

Snowspeeder length: 2.5cm (1")

AT-AT height: 10cm (4")

AT-ST height 4cm (1.5")

 

So in general they are a larger scale but the relative scale is pretty good.  Infantry models are larger still at 1cm (3/8") but do not look too much out of place as each "man" might represent several actual crew.

Very nice job!  We've done similar but not quite as large scale project and used micromachines ATST's and Titanium AT-AT's.  Infantry was done with Epic 40K Guardsmen at 6mm scale.
