A few closer shots of the almost completed Vikings. I think I will have to go back and put some kind of shield transfers on these in the future and a coat of varnish.

The basing was done with grey chippings form a bag of model railway ballast. That was PVA glued on. Followed by a mix of PVA and snow effect (from a tub of GW basing snow). Finally some Winter mininatur grass tufts were fixed on.

I wanted to approximate more of a tundra or Fjord-side feel. Wintry but without huge drifts of snow. They are at least a change from Summer static grass!

    Did you nick my idea? 🙂

  2. Me? Nooooo! 🙂 But make sure you use a good lot of PVA in the snow powder or it dries very thin as I think you pointed out. Its snow good if you don’t add PVA!

    Nice basing. Of course, it has the problem of all basing that isn’t green – it never matches any of the tables you get to play on! Still, I think it’s worth it.
