    What is a good method and or material for flocking snow/ice/rocks for a tundra/ice world terrain?

    Sand the models first, then Undercoat black, then build up from Codex Gry to heavy drybrushing Skull White.

    put a drop of glue on an old brush you dont use, and spread it over your base, Put your flock in a small dish like a yogurt container and then put the model or peice of terrain in the flock. pull out the model or peice of terrain and blow off the extra flock. then make sure that their is none of the flock stuck on the models or terrain. If you only have grass then paint it skull white and drybrush on some lightning blue.

    If Wolves were meant to fly, wouldn’t the Emperor have given them wings?

    Ok, thanks for all the ideas and help! Regarding the snow putty, though, what "is" the putty? I mean is there a specific brand other than green stuff, or is it green stuff or what should I look for?

    It is called green stuff or blue stuff in the U.S. This is the stuff that plastic models are made of and can be used for moding.

    Woodland scenics do a rather impressive range of modelling materials - the snow is particularly good.

    You can vary the effect from wet to dry, depending on the amount of layers you use, and how much PVA you mix into each layer. They also do rather nice water effects materials, which can easily be used for ice.

    and an almost fanatical devotion to the Emperor....
    Our four... no...
    Amongst our weapons... Amongst our weaponry...
    are such elements as fear, surprise...

    I'll come in again.

    Sugar.

    All you do is cover the base with PVA glue then dip in sugar(make pile or bag or something where it won't be eaten) and let dry. It may not look like you put enough on, but let dry and it well become opaque again and look great.

    Cheaper(I think) than snow flock or whatever and it turns out real cool looking(snicker).

    I use it on my BL and it really brings out their cold nature.

    I'll try to get some pics up soon.
    It's fantastically exciting in a really boring way.

    Intelligence is but a light in the darkness of life.

    My mind is like a vacuum cleaner, it sucks up all of the little crap, but the big stuff has to be picked up by hand.
