I have now counted the bricks thoroughly, measured it, and here it is: Christmas On Hoth.

Upstairs, two troopers celebrate whilst another prepares, on the level below, for the fancy dress party. Meanwhile, Santa looks around in confusion...

It could be that more is still needed. If so, please tell me. Thanks,

- Chaotic Good

It still looks a little bland. you do need a lot more decoration, and perhaps some gifts.

The top bit with Santa could use some texture. At least more than a couple of bricks.

As far as adding details, there can be a blast door along one wall, the Bacta Tank with Luke in it (but give him a Santa hat), the little carts the Rebels drive around in, perhaps even some of those computer consoles seen the Echo Base control room. There's really no indication that they're on Hoth as it is now, just a white room. Even some cables and icicles hanging from the ceiling would help.

Ah, okay. Sounds good, I'll try adding those. Thanks for the suggestions!

As to Santa: I tried some sort of sleigh construction but I got nowhere. I searched brickshelf, but all available ideas were too big for the space I have. Any suggestions as to a sleigh?

For the roof, add some Snow on there.

And it's a good start, but i think it needs alot of more details and things in it. And more colour, it's very grey.

Curse you, bad lighting! They're actually white bricks. I'll try to get a better picture...

Here we go.

Well, for starters on an easy sleigh, use the skis shown in this picture. Then, build up into sleigh-like fashion as you see fit. Maybe have a taun-taun pulling it!

(not sure what to call the skis, and couldn't find a better picture)

Perfect! Thanks. I'm utilizing all the suggestions; Luke in Bacta tank, etc. Thanks again.

Taking in mind the luke-with-a-santa-hat idea, I only had one hat. So I thought that, since the sleigh could do a good job, I could leave Santa out.

For some reason, the third picture really makes me laugh...

That's what's on luke's head? I could barely see it, let alone recognize it as a Santa hat! My apologies. Embarassed

A nice multi leveled vig.

And the improvement in the later version is great.
I want more funny details though. Chewie and Leia kissing under the mistletoe. Maybe that could be arrenged. Smile

Updated design now entered into the contest. Thanks to Larry Lars for suggesting the Leia/Chewie idea.
