    My son and I love the battle of Hoth, but recreating it seemed like a daunting task.  After spying some 3mm miniatures on the GZG website I had an idea!

    Cool! I’ve just been thinking about the same thing… the LEGO turrets are a great idea!  All you need now is a shield generator.

    These are great, are you planning on adding any infantry?

    The hope is for a Hoth “light” game.  If you look really close you can see some infantry near the terrain.  After I finished them I realized they were too small and looked ridiculous.  Painting anything smaller than 15mm is nearly impossible for me!

    Oh, I see them, really tiny!  I wonder how Oddzial Osmy figures might look in the mix?

    It’s a great idea, looks fantastic.  I like how it looks both serious and “kiddie” at the same time.

    What rules are you going to use?

    Very nicely painted, never knew white could look so good. Being 3mm makes it even better.

    I’d say check out Oddzial Osmy infantry. I think they have WWI infantry in trench coat that could do winter storm troopers pretty well.

    Tired is enough.

    Thanks for sharing that, it’s delightful! I have my own, similar plans for that range. Aren’t those miniatures 2mm scale though, rather than 3mm? GZG released them before 3mm had become a thing.

    2mm!?  No wonder they were so hard to paint!

    I don’t think I can mange the infantry.

    At least, they’re named as 2mm in the GZG webstore and always have been named such, as far as I can recall. I wouldn’t know how they actually size up next to 3mm Oddzial Osmy. I really have to get around to ordering some of them. They’re not even expensive.

    My own project for these models and figures, the way I’ve planned it, is going to be less specifically Hoth-inspired. That way I can use the drop pods and the spherical dropships from the same range as buildings (with some minor conversions to make them look less ship-like). They would suit a cartoonish Star Wars-style universe well enough as architecture, I think.

    What are the buildings you’re using?

    Some are made out of lego, specifically the radar dish.  The long building is from Combat zone scenery’s 15mm range.  The squarish buildings are from the Scene and are actually airconditioners that sat in my bits box for 3 years.

    I like the look of those.

    I had a go with models from that range a few years ago and planned to do more (including stuff from OO & Irregular). Had fun painting what I did but never got very far. It was really the models that caught my imagination, not playing games with them.

    Here’s a few of the experiments ….

    I like the different paint schemes on your models!  Pretty versatile little models.  I wish I had bought some of the little tanks.
