Cool If you are thinking about doing it agin you might want to get some of the Hoth sets form the old Micro colection set the turets are the right sise. Also, I made molds of them for my hoth battle.

Death to Sqwares go freeform
Those turrets would work great. I'm looking at the Hoth Wampa Cave from the Micro Collection that is sitting on my desk right now. I think that I will just use my homemade turrets for present time since they are made because if I got any Micro Collection I would just want to display it.

I hoping that WOTC will make a set that has a couple of Hoth Turrets, a couple more Hoth maps and some grunts like AoE. I doubt they will, but then again I never expected the AT-AT to be made.

wish i had that many snowspeeders and AT-AT's (i have one speeder and no at-at lol)

Great job!
Yeah, I wish I had that many too!!!!

I have two AT-ATs (one is a wedding aniversary gift and the other a Christmas present from my dad) and only two snowspeeders. I borrowed the rest.

The next Nexus will be in April or May.

Fantastic.

Finally I got working stats for my Falcon.:D

Thankyou very much.

I have neither X or Y, are there stats for the A-wing anywhere?

Aside from Starship battles that is. I'd love to see it in a mini battle.

I guess Flight, Strafe, Speed16, 80HP, 16Def, +8Attack, 20 Damage, Moble attack, Twin attack? Damage reduction 10?

Cover would be useless of course.
Bump! This is amazing!! Nice work guys!
Bumping to keep from the pit of Archive.....

With the release of TFU which finally has the Hoth Turret, I figure that many people are going to be running Hoth Battles so I bumped this so they can see the rules we used.

Hard to believe that this Monday is the one year anniversary of this epic battle.

soggybottomboy2469 that is the cut-away model that I put together years ago that I think is made by ATM. You might be able to find on on ebay.

Hey Iron! You should play in the one I'm having next Saturday.
If you let me know 30 days in advanced I will come to one of yours.
Thanks for a great reminder why I have enjoyed this hobby so much!

With the Target set around the corner and some great pieces in this set, I'm looking forward to having some variety in the Hoth-specific scenarios!

That was AMAZING !!!!! I wish I had been there.... Thanks for showing us the pic....
Bump.....
Hey i found this thread from ironlightsaber's siggy. I love everything there. Excellent work.
Thanks for the bump! :D

Wow. It's hard to believe that two days ago was the two year anniversary of this event. I still plan on rebuilding the whole thing with gridded lines and using the Turrets that came out with FU.

Absolutely amazing. I wish my LGS hosted stuff like this.
I see some damage but no destroyed AT-AT...so, to ask again, no destroyed AT-AT?

The middle one when we started was the only one destroyed. Darth Magus's, although he single-handedly took down nearly all of the shield generator while the rest of us were targeting the turrets.

We used the "smoke" (painted steel-wool) to indicate destroyed items such as the turrets, the generator and AT-ATs.
