Basing Part 2

I wanted a very snowy but quick base. I put a quick coat of AP Spaceship Exterior over the base then glued some white stones I bought along time ago to it. I then used GW Valhallan Blizzard all over the base. I finally finished the outside of the base with a couple coats of Instar Artic White mixed with a little AP Matt White.
