Hey everyone. this is not really a log but I wanted to show off some pics of my newly created snow table along with some newly released Confrontation pre-painted plastics and get some opinions. I am thinking of adding another layer of snow to the table itself to add a bit more depth.

What do you think?

What you have looks cool.. but I think it needs more variety in terrain. still better than my board :P

Im Extremely interested in the frozen rocks, as they look great. Can you take some close up shots please and maybe a little explanation on how you created it ??? please :)

It looks excellent, apart from the central hill, which seems like a piece of polystyrene just lying there. Otherwise a really good looking table.

Looks very good, I have to agree on the central hill though.

How did you make your snow?

Hey guys, thanks for all the comments!

More terrain is called for indeed! everything you see was lying around in my closet and I decided to put it all together over the course of a few days. I am working on a castle/fortress/tower thing that will hopefully add some more variety. I would like to have two sets of terrain for this board. One with more of an iceworld theme and one with a winter forest theme. Right now I have a little of each.

I can do that! The rocks and the hill where made from a bunch of chunks of polystyrene I had sitting in a drawer. I pulled them out a few weeks ago and decided to make something with them. The two tall rocks were already cut as they are from when I cut them a year or so ago, and the little rocks were similar to the taller ones and I just broke them up glued them to a base I cut out and painted 'em up. I started with a bluish gray and painted that on in a solid coat, and then added some white and drybrushed that on. I kept adding white and drybrushing until I was satisfied. I then added a few layers of woodland scenics snow. With the snow you have to make sure you have a solid layer of white on the base as the snow is nearly transparent.

I will get some close up pics of them later on.

Ya, that "hill" really was just a chunk of polystyrene that I meant to do more with. I was using it as a test piece for the colors and the snow. It looks a little better in person especially when you are not looking at it from a straight down view.

Agreed. It needs to be thinner. Perhaps you should step the hill. Progressive layers (just wide enough for a miniature to balance) until you reach the height your after!

I love this whole log, but your rocks look too much like polystyrene still. Maybe round off a few edges.

You can easily make some frozen lakes too.

Cut out some large, random shapes from a transparency sheet. You can get them at any office supply store. Then flock the edges to create a bank and so that it blends with the board. Then just lay it on the table! Instant ice!

looking good, but how did you make the snow on the base of the board it looks really nice
