Nearly finished today...based them with some snow. All that's left now is to clean up the edge of the bases and give them a matt varnish...hope the snow stays in tact :-\

Love snow schemes, and the green really works along with it! Very alien looking!

Hey everyone...

So it has been forever since I last posted. No excuses. I have made a bit of progress on loads more guardian bases...though still more than half are still missing :-[

Finished Black Guardian Unit (and start of support unit behind):

Start of another Black Guardian Unit (I find my lack of farseers disturbing):
Image


The real progress is with the start of the mechanized black guardian units (jetbike support):

Have to say I am quite proud of the jetbike free hand :)

Very nice! What are you using for snow?


Woodland Scenics Softflake Snow.

Mixture of around half half PVA and snow flakes with white paint added...fleck that onto the base and then drop the whole base into just snow flakes and leave to set.

Gives you a nice crusty fresh snow finish.

Does it do well with subsequent spray varnishing or is that a big no-no?

Got to spend a lot more time on epic than I normally do on a weekend, so here is some more progress.

I made a mistake on the snow, i forgot to add white paint into the mixture and you can see the results here; instead of pristine snow you get more of an urban slush... May need to try and fix this later for army coherency...slightly kicking myself at the moment.
