One of my earliest ever memories from film (and pretty much my life) is of the Empires giant walkers striding across Hoth, kicking rebel ass. These seemed like the coolest way to travel, but the paintwork always seemed a little, well, dull. I decided to give these most iconic of vehicles a paint job inspired by some other memorable modes of transport from TV, films and games… Hope you like ’em.
And if you really really like them, a few designs are available as tees or stickers here.
The AT-AT Team
“A long, long time ago a crack Stormtrooper unit was sent to prison by an Imperial court for a crime they didn’t commit. These clones promptly escaped, from a maximum security stockade, far away to the Tatooine underground. Today, still wanted by the Empire, they survive as troopers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the AT-AT Team…”
