I have finally finished another space wolf and based the first test figure. I went for a snowy base, which was something I had never tried before. I bought a tub of citadel snow effects when it came out 3 or 4 years ago for a project which i never started. I painted the bases in my usual way adding some slate and grass. I then painted patches of white, over the white i used PVA glue and then dipped the bases in the tub of snow. I did this twice to get the depth of snow I wanted and I am happy with the result.
