Test piece.
Whilst waiting for inks to dry on the Mongols (yes they are on their way  Tongue ) I tried these.
Then I based them...

Waiting for standards at Derby, then I can do command stands.

And they told us it would be over by Christmas! And still Paris holds out. Shocked

Nice one, Will.

Oh dear, Germans at the gates of Paris in 1864 - still they look very good and I'm sure they'll show up the Austrians in Schleswig.

Hi Lem,

As you know, I am a big fan of your work (if you sense the word but marching towards this sentence, you are right!  Cheesy) but, I am not sure the basing does justice to these.  I think they need some form of foliage/grass to provide contrast with the snow - at the moment they are a bit black and white and two dimensional. Your Mongols basing is perfect, a bit of that with the snow would, I think bring these to life!

I have always understood that convincing snow basing is the most difficult to carry off. Consequently, not surprisingly, I have never tried it!

Good luck!  Cheesy

What happens in the spring? Does the base melt and the figures fall off?  Undecided

The purveyors of Christmas cheer (and, yes, our local garden centres are already fully stocked) use a small amount of glitter to give a crystaline effect to their "snow".
The only thing I can think of that might do that sort of job is a very light sprinkling of granulated sugar (seriously!). I used it some years ago as texturing on 10mm bases and it hasn't melted or degraded, although I did originally paint over it to secure it. I would, however, suggest you experiment with it first before going ahead.  Nerd

They're a grim looking bunch, but I bet they're quick to paint.
