Recently I've started a new Imperial Guard army, the Vostroyan First Born. Inspired by Light of the Emperor's (brilliant army), I'd decided to go for green bases as well (after having experimented with blue...). Because my painting level is pretty average, I thought I could make my miniatures a little more interesting by giving 'm snowbases. I'm really pleased with how they came out.
The snow was made by painting the areas where it is applied white. Then, using an old brush, I painted a mix of pva glue, some water and baking soda on it. After that, I dipped the bases in my pot of GW snow - the baking soda mix alone came out rather matt/dull.
So here are some pics. Excuse the poor lightning, it's getting a tad dark already, but I wanted to show 'm now ;>.
Now those where my test models. I'm off to painting another dozen or so right now.
