Wrecked Imperial Walker - Finished!
Well, the demolished AT-AT scene is finally finished and not a moment too soon considering Jersey Fest is this Saturday and I intend to show this piece there. I actually enjoyed the build even though it really put me through the paces.
The Walker had pretty much gone through life, up until now, as a shelf queen waiting for an opportunity like this to really earn its place. I'm pleased with my decision to change from snow to a more jungle/woodland like environment. The landscape is eye catching and gave me the opportunity to hone my ground work skills.
I think I could have done better with the paint work and weathering on the Walker, I'm pretty sure the strict deadline hindered my normally meticulous approach. So, in the end I feel like it is a very unique vignette, but is it a winner? I'll be able to tell you that Saturday evening...
In the mean time, check out the completed pics!
You can see I took some advice and altered the color of the mossy vegetation stuck on the hull...
