Sorry about asking you guys again about snow terrain, your suggestions in the past have been okay, but the snow I am thinking of has texture, sticks out, has width~ being the key point. I've seen a terrain once with a gooey snow with snow like material on top. The snow looks like PVA but it look like it wasn't dried and such. Thanks for any ideas.
I think thats exactly what I wanted. I'll give it a try. Any suggestions for a PVA glue?
I use basic white emlers glue
faol thats some good snow.
Thanks now i got a good base for my models :yes:

Thanks, I'm glad you like it the snow is really easy to make and materials cost next to nothing:w00t: always a big + in my book.
Now I need figure out how to make bloody snow and tundra like bases
Depends on what kind of tundra you want.
My guessing is that you of course want some snow on that base too, right? (I'm a genious)
I've been making a sort of summer tundra theme to my valhallans, that is without the snow, and well... it does look like some half dead siberia tundra thing...
Ok here's tip...
Start with adding light sand to the base, avoid the stuff that is too coarse, never add rocks...
Paint up the sand too a fairly deep brown colour, taking care to add some good highlight to the base.
Next add some grass, preferably static grass. Add only in pathces and for extra detail (depending on the base of the model) add a sertain amount of extra long "bunches" of green paintbrush strands. (You can get this easily and cheap from woodland scenics)
Worth to notice is that there is several shades of green avaliable to static grass and the long "hairs" that I use, take the ones that look most dead...
After that just add some snow in the same recipy as mentioned before beforehand in this topic and it should look quite good. Make sure to add the long hairs through the "snow" to give an effect of long grass growing through...
Hope you find this useful...

Not sure if you were cussing at it ("Bloody snow"), but here's my tip.Originally Posted by faol
Once you've got the snow down, drybrush the areas you want to be covered in blood in Bestial brown. Let that dry, then cover the brown with a good drybrush of the red of your choice. Cover with a red ink, and viola! Bloody snow.
To go for a sprayed effect get an old toothbrush with frazzled bristles. Cover the bristles liberally in the red of your choice, and run your thumb quickly against the bristles.NB: If you're going to use this on a miniatures base, I'd suggest doing this before the model is glued down, unless you want them a bit spattered too.For a more "Directed spurt" look (eg: long streaks of blood) liberally cover the bristles of a paintbrush with the (watered down) paint of your choice. Hold the end of the paintbrush, with the bristles directly over the point where you want the "Spurt" to start. Flick your wrist in any direction, and a realistic sput of blood is created.NB: If you want this effect on a wall, then lay the wall down, flick the paintbrush, then stand the wall back up again as quickly as possible. This will cause the paint to run down the wall, and look very cool.Hope that helps =)
