Hoth for Hot

I've decided to resurrect my 15mm Star Wars Rebel army to use at the HotT Royal Tournament later this month. As a sneak preview here's an area of bad going I've constructed to go with the army.

It's a simple piece, put together over the last couple of evenings. The base is hardboard cut to shape with a jigsaw and with the edges chamfered with a combination of Stanley knife and sand paper. The ice blocks are broken polystyrene packaging and the surface texture is my usual tile grout.

The snow speeder is a plastic toy (source unknown).

The snow and ice get a coat of pale blue acrylic and then a heavy "damp brush" with white and Darth's your uncle (well, nearly).
