So, I am now nearly certain that there wont be plastic sisters of battle anytime soon, so I will have to put off my Sisters of Chaos project for the time being. Meanwhile, I am starting a dwarf army and have decided on a winter theme. As I am not terribly skilled/experienced and only moderately creative, I would like to ask Heresy for some assistance!
1. Snow bases are a must, of course. However, GW snow flock does not look too great. I've looked up a few snow methods, but what works for you? Is it better to glue your model onto the snow or put the snow at the feet of your model?
2. Similarly, how can I create the effect of snow on my troops?
3. Slayers seem way under dressed for war in the frozen wastes, any tricks to modeling say bearskin?
4. A final idea I had was to have icicles hanging from the openings of guns and cannons. I can't quite work out how to get anything to look remotely like ice though.
