I recently picked up a unit of Dwarven warriors and quickly got to test models painted up:
I thought i'd go for an un-uniform regiment rather than a strict colour scheme.
The snow on the base looks pretty bad,so if anydoby has any good ways of making realistic snowbases,let me know.
Sorry for the not so brilliant pictures,I'm still getting used to taking pictures with my phone.
Well its hard to say what they look like as the photos are so very tiny.
They happen to be small because they are thumbnails,if you click on them you'll see bigger pictures.
While the photo's are small, I can tell you how you might be able to improve on the snow.
Kuffy wrote an excellent guide (or tutorial) to snow bases here and I think that the key is actually putting the snow on top of an already based base, some rocks, grass, mud whatever you would normally use is fine.
Then a snow mix on top, it just adds a bit more interest, rather than snow on the plains so thin you're standing on the ground, yet so thick it hides all trace of the ground underneath (just looks a bit wrong).
I have used this in a couple of my bases in my WIP thread (link in signature), the Reavers are on plain stone + snow and the Spearmen are on stone with grass mixed in as well then snow on top.
Hmm,strange,the thumbnails usually work on other forums??
I'll give you a link instead:

Thanks for being patient.
As for using a camera,i would but mine broke.
for a phone camera the photos are pretty good in terms of quality,

Those are great models dude! I really like them, you've got some good blending and highlighting, but it's not too strong - what I imagine as the ideal mixture. The hair/beards look very well done.
Also: I don't know if it's what you're looking for, but you could take a look at this tutorial -
