|If you know someone going to Disneyland have them get you one of these.|
I actually have a Nemo popcorn bucket that my wife and I picked up in Tokyo Disney last summer and it was really pretty nice, with articulated eyes, but the AT-AT just blows it away. It is a really nice size and has fully articulated legs. For $25 it is an excellent buy. (Apparently they are popular enough that they limit purchases to one per day.)
|It looks pretty good next to the Legion models.|
|My wife was horrified that I would take apart such a nice model.|
My feeling based on experience with other games was that I would get a lot more use out of several smaller pieces of terrain than 1 giant wrecked AT-AT.
|The Dremel was really handy for smoothing out edges and cutting off some extra bits.|
|5 pieces seemed about right, although I have a couple more pieces I could work with.|
Flat boards are dull, so I also picked up a small piece of insulating foam. I cut out chunks of the foam to use as rocks. I stuck the rocks in and around the pieces of the AT-AT.
I then hit the whole thing with a coat of Army Painter grey primer.
|That little bit of grass was a test. I decided I didn't like it.|
I tried both green and dead static grass as well, but wasn't thrilled with how it looked.
|Not bad eh?|
So, go get yourself a popcorn holder. It makes great terrain.
