Lloyd's Frosted Snow Bases

106 Comments

Come and take a look at what Lloyd has been tinkering away on. Here we have his techniques for snow bases and frost, allowing for a slushy, icy mix.

As you can see it looks very effective and creates a fascinating look which makes for some cool 'White Walker' skeletons.

That’s pretty neat. I might have to try that one for myself.

I’ve heard of baking soda reacting with moisture down the road. Is that true? Will it last like that? Or will it react and go bad?

Because it’s mixed with superglue it won’t be a problem – thank the TerrainTutor for that little tip 😉

I was waiting for this. Lloyd always has great ideas for new techniques. Like the basing work. 😉

Nice one. I heard baking soda can go yellow over time or is that just if you use PVA rather than super glue? Beware the yellow snow!

PVA is water based, so it will attract moisture – which then turns it yellow. If you use super glue then it won’t be a problem.

Once again, thanks to TheTerrainTutor for his help 😉

Nice idea, the baking soda. I’ll have to try it myself. At least that is something the other half buys.

Nice look and it’s nice to see the base edges being painted a color other than black. It marks an army as a group whereas the oft used black makes me think that it’s just unused primer. I’ll have to try this tip with my KoW ogres.
Dang, Justin, you beat me to the rock joke. And you didn’t make Lloyd blow his cork.
