Although it's not quite finished yet, here is my biggest project so far.
I tried to arrange a playset that includes the surface of hoth with a rebel trench, the echo base control room, a little medical center and of course a wampa cave must not be missing. All of this should work on an area of 20“ x 13”and all of the lighting is done by one led strip from the 1 Euro Shop.
I used parts from an old POTF "Hoth Battle Playset" that looked more like a "Tatooine Battle Set" before painting.
I still have to print out the right background for the playset and correct a few more details.
An update with some "making of" pictures and the final set will follow.
Let me know what you think about it.

I want to use a background with two sides (rebels prepare for defense & attack of the AT ATs). Still some photoshop work to do.

I don't know much about soldering or how to use resistors but with a ready made LED strip its quite easy and also very cheap.

..and together with some transparent foil, a piece of mirror foil (with that it looks like it contains liquid), the bottom of a paper cup and an old screw cap you get a very nice and cheap bacta tank.

and here is the final hoth version together with the (removable) background.

I integrated an extra window (with a piece of transparent foil) in the background for the medical center that enlarges the play area.

That looks really cool! The photos really add to the depth.

They sell a plastic mesh for knitting projects. If you were to cut out every other (or every 2) links, you could have a 3D floor skid. They come in different colors.

It's an incredible effort and dare I say on par with the old Kenner playsets, perhaps even better due to the many options.
