The Arrival of a Star Destroyer

During the night before the assault on Hoth the Imperial troops had to land a Star Destroyer to speed up the process of placing AT-AT's and massive amount of other gear on the planet surface. The icy moonlit landing site had to be inspected by foot to make sure it can take the immense weight of a Star Destroyer without cracking.

 

These four guys were in charge of that task. Can you imagine the pressure? No wonder they don't talk much...

 

I was going to upload this shot on May 21, the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back's official premiere. Couldn't wait, because I wanted to upload something on may the fourth, too. More fun this way. :D

 

Looks good on black.

 

UPDATE: There's an Avanaut Facebook page for social media cross platformers.
