Hi All

While on recon patrol on the swamp planet of Balopah two troopers take a small but well earned break after sloshing thru the thick mud, They look around the area to see what is the best route to take next. They rely highly on recon probes to help them navigate thru the entwining vines of the swamp.

The troopers wear an extra breather due to the high methane fumes that is produced by the swamps, it's just not the fumes the troopers have to worry about it is also deadly reptiles that can kill in second if you get bitten.The mud can get that thick it can takes days to get thru a patrol and can make you more exhuasted then you normaly would.

RECIPE

The figures - The Stormtroopers and Recon Probe are all from Hasbro, the Troopers are a mix of VOTC troopers and Legacy troopers and the small Recon Probe is from a Sith set. The Probe has had it's old anteena taken off and replaced with a pin, the troopers as mentioned are a mix with additional tube added which is from a AT-AT figure.

The standing troopers has been given a German WW2 MG42 and some additional equipement which I got from the parts box. The beast my Daughter gave me it was a Stegasuruas I chopped of the armour plates and puttied him up, the saddle and harness are from the Horse and Indiana jones set and the equipement is again from the parts box and are 1/16 and 1/35th pieces.

The Base - The base is foam core wth plaster of paris added to it, the tangled roots are from the back yard from a palm tree which were turned upside down and pushed into the foam and then glued inplace. The patches of grass is static grass and the snakes are from the Indiana jones pitfall set and the young indy figure.

The swamp water is a mixer of woodland scenics realistic water with added paint and then brushed onto the base it was given different thickness in areas for depth. The mud is realistic water with brown paint and fine sand and model railway snow mixed in and then dapped onto the base.
