i want to have a snowy base for my thousand sons (walking in powder snow, not standing on packed snow). is the games workshop stuff good? or can anyone recommend something that creates a good effect?
its ok, i just use elmers and use it for a quick base. its a pretty fine material too.
It's ok. some people swear by bicarbonare of soda, but don't add water!

Apparantly most people don't like the GW flock paint. It gives a fake look, and looks wetish.
Most experianced hobbiests go for this option for snow bases: Tutorial!
It gives a real snow effect, and is the main recommended way to do it on a lot of forums...
Personally I havn't tried, but I will be using this method once i get around to basing my models.

I can't compare the GW stuff to others, but judging by itself, it's not all that good. Aside from the obvious overpriced half-empty tub complaint, one of my complaints is the lack of a layering ability. You can't make the snow as high as you want, it's always a thin sprinkle of snow. If you try to add on top of one layer with white glue, the existing layer gets fugged. I'm avoiding it once I find a better product.
Okay, so now I have no signature. Great.
