The Battle of Hoth reaches its climax as Blizzard Force breaches the outer defenses of Echo Base, allowing the Empire to directly attack the headquarters of the Rebel Alliance.
About this creation
I created this for a FBTB group project in a few days, though I entered it late because I didn't have access to a camera at the time, and also because I was busy with school. This is the first "action" diorama I've posted, so please be brutally honest on how I can improve. And yes, I didn't have enough snowtroopers for the scene, so I used regular old stormtroopers instead.
Here is an overall view of the battle.
The Rebel side. Notice how there is stuff everywhere, from shipping containers being used as cover to errant missiles scattered about.
View from the Rebel turret.
More detail of the Rebel side, including a hover trolly thing (used to move around people in a hanger) being flipped over for even more cover.
This container was shot, letting the contents of priceless gold coins scatter every which way.
Two officers as they approach the entrance to Echo base.
The snowspeeder's pilot never took off in time before the invasion, so he is also using it as cover.
Wreckage of an anti-infantry turret just outside the entrance, along with the remains of a probe droid.
