While on patrol on the ice moon of Crutuk a small Imperial snow patrol stop and scan the local area for any rebel activity. The Snowtroopers recon unit only consist of a small two man operation and also a probe droid for extra scanning capabilities. The ice moon Crutuk hasn't got as thick snow cover like Hoth but it does still fall to minus 20 degrees at night but stays around 3 degrees during the day, the other problem the Troopers face is the constant rocky outcrops the plague the moon.
The figures - The Snowtroopers and Probe droid are from Hasbro the troopers are the VOTC troopers, I decided to go with the piant work that they come with instead on the whole white trooper I think that the white and Grey really work well together.
The troopers have had blasters added to them using blasters from some old Sandtroopers figures I have in the parts box, the bino's are from the parts box and the scanner in from the Hoth Solo figure with added parts and thin plasti card for antenna. The troopesr and droid where painted and drybrushed using Vallejo paints.
The Probe droid is staright from the box the only thing I did with it was to remove the thicker antenna and change them over with clothing pins to give it a more realistic look.
The Base - The bottom of the base is foam core and foam has then been used to build the hieght and I then cut and ripped the foam aprt to get the look I wanted. I then used plaster of paris and covered the whole base and once dry painted it using browns and pastels to get the desired look, Once that dried I used model railway snow and lightly covered the base until I got he look I wanted.
