Preparing for winter gaming!

After all the sunshine, I'm back thinking about winter, but this is terrain for the SOTCW Gauntlet game. While on holiday I managed (just) to order some trees, which arrived not long after our return.

I also managed to find (after much searching) the couple of ancient sheets that were used for the last winter game,. Rather than use them as is, I found a couple of old cans of car spray (grey primer and a blue from a really old car my wife had) and added a bit of variation to them (and hide some of the discolouration)


I had ordered both deciduous trees and conifers, but I've finished the former first. They are cheap amatures from China just trimed and based up on thick card, then given a texturing mix. I tried the white paint/PVA/bicarbonate of soda formulation in equal proportions for the snow and is seems to work OK, so I'll be using it again for the next batch.

Nice. I can see the frozen tableau already. Good for any period too.
