Just had to post this link for making awesome multi-purpose snow.
Welcome to the Drunk Dwarves
It has yet to be proven that intelligence has any survival value. - Arthur C. Clarke (1917 - 2008)
That is very helpful info on snow. Most info on snow is very odd and my few lamented attempts have often ended with the model seemingly mysteriously walking on white quicksand.
Looks pretty good.
Might have to try that, if I ever stop basing everything to look like its wandering around in a desert!
get some snow from GW and mix it with white glue. add a type of blue and it looks like frost. now mix the glue snow and mabe paint to make a paist then you can banch it up or spead it out in to thin layers it can ever go on the side of things. just dont use to much glue and sry for the bad spelling
Here's a lazyman's tip to making snow for a table. Go to your printer and grab a sheet of white paper. Now go crazy and fold and crinkle this piece until its nice and crappy. Flatten it out again, then place it on a scanner and make some copies. Make some weth less crinkles, some with more crinkles. The printed version looks like traversed snow, and you can now place this on a table to make a cheap but good looking snow based table. All you need now it to make some hills and actual crevices, and you have yourself a basic but good looking ice-world.

Want some easy to do snow?
Look at this:
How you may ask?
First, paint teh base a blue color, I used Shadow Grey, but Ice Blue could work too, this is so that if your snow ends up being thin in a few places, the blue tint will make it seem icing instead of the base's default black color.
Second, open you container of DecoArt Snow-Tex, take a 'Testor' sized brush(the kind you get in they're paint kits, or just anything too big for detail in 40K) and apply the Snow-Tex in a fairly even layer all around the base, either before or after the model is placed, I prefer after as it seems like hes standing in snow rather than on it.
Then take some blobs of Snow-tex and place them randomly around teh base to make little hills and such.
Yeah it may depend on being able to get the Snow-tex, but this 59ml bottle could easily handle 1000-1500 points of models, if not more, adeal for 12$ CAD if you ask me!
And the brush will even come out clean if your quick to rinse it.
I use Wood paste for my snow. It doesent fit on lightly snowed bases, but if you're looking for the arctic permafrost thingie this is the way to proceed.
Put on the wood paste perferably the grey one, it's easier to get the arctic effect with that on.
Give it a wash of really thinned down lightblu, I've used Ice blue.
The Paste is now bluish grey, perfect for the shadowed snow/Frost. Now take a large brush and give the paste a rough drybrush. Warning this wil ruin small brushes, that is a flatbrush, mainly cheap ones are recommended. ^_^
