Very nice model! Just one thing though... does this really constitute as a All Terrain key word vehicle? I mean it is something that is already created.
Lieutenant RoDR1. You are to report to Lord Vader on board of his ISD Garret. Your shuttle is waiting. I have been informed it concerns your wrong identification of Imperial vehicle AT-PT (All Terrain Personal Transport).
Oh yes, your next of kin have already been informed.
:D very nice model
AT-AT is All Terrain Assault Transport (the walker from Episode V)
AT-ST is All Terrain Scout Transport (bipedal walker from Episode VI)
AT-PT is All Terrain Personal Transport (from no episode, but appeared in one SW game and is listed in that SW vehicles guide book I have. Those small walkers acting as support of AT-ATs in battle of Hoth are actually AT-STs)
I should end here, or you find out how deep my nerdness runs.

Last render for today:
I am sure its not there. I actually checked if it does not appear in the remastered version, but it doesnt. At least not on battle of Hoth. There are only 2 scenes featuring other imperial walker than AT-AT and those are both AT-STs. In this episode they are walking very fast compared to Return of the Jedi, and the walk is more confident compared to the chicken walk in episode 6, so it is a possible reason for confusing those walkers. I take it AT-PT has been designed after the original trilogy either for TV series, or as a visual representation of walkers appearing in the books by Timothy Zahn (didnt read those). After all, there are many Star Wars vehicles fans take for granted, while they never made appearence in any of the films. For example imperial Interdictor Cruisers, Vicory Class Star Destroyer, TIE Advanced, or Z-95 Headhunter.
As for qualifying with the rules, I think this one is all terrain all right. You may have problem with weaponry, as AT-PT has no long range weapon. Only the twin laser for close encounters. Its ineffective against armored targets. After all AT-PT is sort of an armored jeep for one, maximum 2 people. But do not worry. This is awesome model.
And dont be sorry. Lord Vader does not like to see weakness. Hey, if hes in good mood, you may end up guarding wookie slaves in Kessel mines :D

Wow, u really know a lot about this stuff!!!!
whether this model can not participate nothing happens, what matters is how much fun it was and how much i learned doing it.

P.D:if someone could clarify this would be helpful.
