Forward, Troopers! Your Empire Needs You!

The Battle of Mimban was one of the greatest cinematic scenes from Solo: A Star Wars Story. Ever since we saw mudtroopers and stormtroopers slogging it out in the trenches, builders such as h2brick have dutifully recreated the chaos on both a large and small scale.

Battle of Mimban / Back to building :D

First off, let’s give h2brick credit for the bright explosions happening in this diorama. Fire is a detail hard to capture with bricks, but he’s managed to make it look like the mudtrooper nearest to the explosion is definitely convinced that it’s real. Adding to the detail are the layers of mud and rock that make up Mimban’s tumultuous surface. The nougat and brown blend well, as do the dark tan bricks oozing onto the grey concrete, making it look like the mud is encroaching on the Imperial camp.

Speaking of which, I love that h2brick included a scout trooper checking a hologram map. It’s the tiny things about this build that make it so fun to look at and want to build myself. For example, his design for the supply containers stamped with the Imperial insignia would be really simple to replicate. My only question is, what could be under the grating that the scout trooper is standing on? A forgotten wookiee, perhaps?
