I'm very interested in this, too, but haven't followed through with
writing a script to do it.  NixOps works on EC2 so I looked into how
they do it, only to find that the NixOS developers generate a public
base AMI whose id is stored in the NixOps code. Not the solution I was
expecting.  So I found the nixpkgs script that generates the base
NixOS AMIs. Maybe reading it will help you:
