Thought I would share photos of the miniatures I used on my Winter theme entry in the winter forum contest. I am glad I made the scene able to be taken down, so I could take these photos. I would have had the worm on a seperate base, but he is built into the scene on the large base. When I purchased the Worm over the summer, this was the idea I had in mind at that time, but was going to use Koarlap Bloodhand, Barbarian. When I saw Nanoc and Kaya though, I changed my mind. I hope you get a better look at the individuals than you did in the contest entry.

 

C & C always welcome.

You did a very good work bringing the scene to life. I saw your entry in the winter challenge, the whole ensemble is well balanced and the bluish blending on the worm has a nice almost translucent aspect. What did you use for the snow? It looks great!

As much as I hear about the snow effects stuff that people use, I really have never been impressed with it (Looks more like Ice than snow), and my budget usually does not allow for the cost of that stuff, so I came up with my own snow recipe that I think looks more like real snow and is a lot cheaper to boot. The photo below shows what I use. There is no science to it though. All I do is squirt some of the cheap acrylic white paint into a mixing container that can be thrown away, Squirt in some of the glue (about 2:1 glue to paint), add about a teaspoon of baking soda, and a little water. I mix that up and with a tooth pick, start applying it where I want it. I do little areas at a time, so while it is still wet I can sprinkle on some more baking soda to give it the powder effect. This effect still looks powdery even after the sealer coats are applied. That is it. Like I said it is not science and you can mix up any consistency you want with what ever ratios you think best. My only suggestion is to make sure you use cheap white paint from Wally World or Craft stores.
