How does the snow flakes came out? the picts doesn't give a good feeling on it...
Take another look at the last pic with the flash. Notice how the tops of the glaciers look shiny and dull. The dull parts are the Woodlands Scenic snow flock. Doesn't look too bad on the pic but certainly better in person. I have been quite busy with my newborn son (currently 3 weeks old on this post) and haven't been able to get to the craft/hobby store for some sealant. I do plan to build up some of the snow to appear like snow drift and gradual hills. Really what you see above is just glacier pieces, and as is above really isn't what I intend to game with as there is absolutely zero cover saves for my Tyranids unless hidden behind the glacier pieces. When time allows I will make more pieces, hopefully this weekend.
Did you just highlighted in white the glaciers thickness or did you blend some blue in?
The dense foam already had a nice natural glacier blue color and with the wire cutter heating it up it melted nicely. If you melt through the foam slowly it darkens the blue. I only highlighted with a white with a very light blue added to the mix and dry brushed the sides of the glaciers. The tops received a bit more blue that was streaked/blended across the top to give the illusion/appearance of the glacier melt direction.
Unfortunately, Home Depot and Lowes in my area only have pink foam so I cannot get my hands on any 1" foam and the 1" foam that I do have is of a green tint (which is treated with an anti-mold/bacteria agent.)
Future terrain piece(s) project(s):
Ice sheets (cracked and broken)
Cities of Death buildings
Iceburgs busting through the board
Tyranid Spore cysts/chimneys/columns as if Tyranids have taken over the planet. Fluff wise and IIRC, the Titan Moon is the home of Daemonhunters or is it Space wolfes? Anywho, the Tyranids will be taking over that planet!
