It's amazing.

How did you make the power generator ?

Which models did you use for the At-AT and the Falcon ?
I wish I were an octopus to paint more miniatures...Cthulhu must be a great painter

AT-AT ought to be from Star Wars miniatures... Falcon and X-wing I suppose is Galoob's Action Fleet, but that's just a wild guess.

I'm also curious on how you repainted the minis. Look like they've been touched up then dipped then touched up again?

Thank you!  :D

I will try to answer your questions:

The Falcon is a prepainted snap-kit form Revell (easykit): http://www.revell.de/starwars/produkte/en-produkte.html

The Power Generator is made form some parts of an old wardrobe (not by myself…this one is made by another Frank).

The Miniatures are washed with GW “Devlan Mud” and then painted with some highlights and finished with a “blacklining” for the deeper shadows.

Hope that helps!

This is a wonderful paice of work  :-*  :-*  :-*

One question that I might of missed, I assume the squares marked out on the floor are for movement in the game?

cheers

Thanks a lot Franck, it's really wonderful.

Is the X-Wing an Action Fleet or a Revell kit ?

Yes, the squares are for movement and ranges. The rules we are playing with are the d20 rules by WotC, the company how also produce the miniatures and same of the vehicles. The X-Wing is also a easy-kit from Revell.

Unbelievable!! Makes me want to buy some Star Wars minis. Its funny but I'll watch the original three movies anytime I can but it never enters my mind to watch/rent the newer movies.

Please keep this thread updated as much as possible

I totally agree and that's what I did...a kind of child dream. I was 12 years old when I saw the first Star Wars movie in 1977. At this time I wanted to buy an army of Star wars miniatures to play with but they didn't exist.....now my dream came to reality more than 30 years after the first episode  :D  .....may be that's why we are all old children on this forum....

Sure and I really hope they will make the last trilogy (inspred by Timothy Zahn books).
