Simply incredible Ant. I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures. It puts my little army to shame, that's for sure.

What you're looking at is over 700 troops and what portion of my fleet will fit in the picture. I'll be taking more pictures soon enough, and not with my iPhone.

Out of frame is a few more troops, two more standard TIEs, two interceptors, three Bombers, two At-At's, five At-St's and various smaller vehicles.

Not included in the set up is another TIE fighter, another Interceptor, another At-St, 4 speeder bikes and 4 At-At's. I simply didn't have the room.

For the curious, on the table is a full, minimum, battalion of 576 troops plus senior officers, support droids and a command staff totaling 664 pieces on the table alone. Below the table is just over 100 extra troopers. The Battalion is broken down as follows:

1st Company, all platoons (4) - infantry (stormtroopers)
-- 9 troopers to a Squad (including Sergeant),
-- 4 Squads to a Platoon (not including the Lieutenant),
-- 4 Platoons to a Company (not including the Captain)

2nd Company - environment infantry
--1st Platoon - Scouts
--2nd Platoon - Special ops
----1st Squad - Snipers
----2nd Squad - Night ops
----3rd Squad - Grenaders
----4th Squad - Shadow ops
--3rd Platoon - Desert ops
--4th Platoon - Cold weather ops

3rd Company - Support staffs
--1st Platoon - infantry support
--2nd Platoon - intelligence
--3rd Platoon - tech support
--4th Platoon - heavy weapons ops

4th Company - Air and Ground support
--1st Platoon - Space and Atmosphere
--2nd Platoon - EVA ops
--3rd Platoon - Scout Mechs
--4th Platton - Heavy Mechs

Command company (one platoon only)
--Senior Officers
--Aids (not shown)
--Executive Guard (8 of 9 shown)
--Royal Guard (8 of 9 shown)
--Honor Guard (6 of 9 shown)

Droid support
--10 Astromechs
--4 Protocol
--7 Mouse
--8 Torture
--5 Probe (4 shown)

Air, Space and Ground fleet
--7 TIEs
--7 Interceptors
--3 Bombers
--1 TIE advanced
--2 Shuttles
--6 At-At's
--6 St-St's
--14 Speederbikes
--3 Troop transports (vintage)
--3 MTV-7's (vintage)
--1 INT (vintage)
--3 Dewbacks


Woah.  Sweet.  I love the breakdown of the battalion to help describe the pic.

Awesome work Anton!

That's an awesome display Anton.  Do you keep this around all year or did you set up just temporarily?

Thanks everyone.

This is strictly for photography purposes, I originally intended just to do the table top, which had been more or less set up for a few months, but figured I'd go all out a few weeks ago and added the ships. If I had planned to add the ships, I might have purchased some more neutral grey background to make everything look a little sharper. My wife can't wait for me to pack it all up.  :P

Tell her she can buy a couple pairs of shoes to keep it out a while longer.  ;)
