:) nice one goono, great to see the camera being put to good use :) must remember to have words with Bailey about the victors of this epic battle :roll: who needs a sleigh to have fun in the snow :)
If its Luke Jedi then I'm interested, vintage or modern.

Aaaah, now this takes me back to my own Garden of Hoth battle from back in the day...

The rest of my old pics, for those who perhaps haven't seen them, can (I hope) be seen here -

Absolutely brilliant. Love the 'Imperial troops have entered the base' pic, the AT-AT towers over your house!
Good arrows JC!

I love it when it snows, everyone seems to dick about in it.

Some may remember these from last year or so:

Cheers for the comments lads, it was good fun but we ran short on time. Dropped the missus at work at 6.30 (she can't drive in the snow :lol: ) and was supposed to wake up Jr at 7. I fell asleep on the sofa and he woke me up. :oops:

Anyway we got out sharpish and got to it, it was good fun. I don't think I ever got round to doing this as a kid (Mumbo will know his memory is better than mine) so I did have fun.

Cheers for the Wally comments, they did make me chuckle. He did stick out a bit, but it was good to see him joining the rebels and turning over a new leaf.

Those vintage shots from back in the day are awesome Q, and that AT AT army is crazy ODB, the box scene is classic :D


Glad you all liked 'The Battle of Hoth' :D

Boba Fett is still MIA, shame he doesn't get on better with Han otherwise he might have been rescued by now :lol:

Maybe, I wish I got a few Rebel soldiers to bolster the Rebels, a few Clones came out of the box instead...

What a coincidence my youngest daughter dragged the AT AT into the garden along with a Minty Han, Rebel Commander & FX7 on Saturday.
Here she is setting up a shot and the others are her photos
