    At the end of this link there are a few pictures of some Tyranid Snow Terrain I've done. Its nothing much and I'm working on two other pieces right now. The third piece is a command bunker where one of the 'nid drop eggs has landed and destroyed the bunker and its inhabitants. The last one is going to be a scene where one of the eggs has been captured and is going to be destroyed. Something with some enemy models with flamers blowing it up or something. Those are WIPs, but these first two show the eggs that I'm using. Enjoy!

    Nice! What material did you use for the snow? It looks great. Personally, I'd probably stick some rocks poking out of the snow here & there and might have gone with a more ice-like color on the base edges, like a light blue or Space Wolves gray. But, the black does match the black parts of your models, too. Nicely done!

    The snow is a mixture of wall plaster and baking soda and glue I used to make most of it then a powder coating of baking soda on top to give it a powdery snow feel. And I tried several colors for the base edges of my models, several icy blues and things like that, everything was too dark and contrasted too much with the snow itself. I hope I can eventually find one that works for them, I have grown kinda fond of the black though, it makes it stick out lots.

    Thanks for the PVA/plaster/baking soda snow tip. I'll be trying that sometime for sure.

    Do what I do: go down to the hardware store, get a paint sample of white paint, pour some in a takeaway container and put sand in. Lift them out wiht an old spoon and voila! Cheapo snow!
    Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I cannot accept, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill today because they *****ed me off.
