Hello all! I recently acquired a large amount of landscaping quality slate that is PERFECT for basing. However, I have way too much to use myself, so I figured I would help the wargaming community out and sell off some of my extra supply!
First, some examples:
All of my slate is hand...
I can't decide between fine sand or basing grit. Fine sand option: Citadel Fine Sand. Grit option: Gale Force Nine Fine Basing Grit
Now, I'm thinking grit. But, I think sand is perfectly viable too. I will paint the sand/grit onto the base with PVA glue, then seal the top with 1:8 or so...

This is my first tutorial... so don't be too harsh.
Snow flock is kinda expensive for white powder, and doesn't seem the right consistency for snow. And painted on snow looks even worse.
This is an easy tutorial for making realistic snowy bases.
Things you need:

I'm hoping for a little help from the more aeronautically inclined of the LO Community - particularly, those who own or have built a Vulture themselves, or failing that, a Valkyrie, Thunderbolt or Lightning.
I am planning on getting a Vulture Gunship in the near future, and I want to...
