    Thanks for that info BaM. I would have wasted a lot of time and resources if I'd tried the other routes.

If this is double dutch i can run through it all at length, just squeak ... if you are using a tripod try some at f16 from a wee distance on telephoto, mega detail, maybe toooooo detailed on your mighty camera (still green)

    A tip with the snow. It can look like that if you don't put enough down. I just use gloss medium and baking soda and it will look exactly like yours if I just put it down as a series of clumps. Bring it all together though into one or two masses, and maybe add a few more layers of it and it'll come out great.

    Sorry BoK, Baking soda yellows in a very short time, i have learnt through error (goes like smokers teeth ). you need to use raw bicarbonate of soda to remain white, does work well mixed into a paste with pva and dusted on top. Techstar micro balloon things are great but so fine you need to be careful breathing around it, i think i got them in the cmon shop.

    Snow came out perfect. Looks like the melting type. Good work there.

    As for for baking soda turning yellow, either I have a surprise in store for me or the particular brand I used does not do this (at least, not when mixed with gloss).

    From what I've heard if baking soda snow turns yellow it is caused by the type of PVA that was being used. I don't have any experience of this myself (don't really like snow bases that much), but try experimenting with other types of PVA.

    Orks are really good BloodASmedium, like the more muted greens you've used. Makes them look more mean ha. And the blood splattered weapons are great too

    ALMOST TESTED THE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY(flying lessons, threw the mini across the room) because still not happy with the snow melted and grimy scene. So I figured cmon John when does the frozen tundra of space wolf home planet fenrisian not be a " frozen tundra" so I Cecile's to add more fresh snow and use what BFOK said merge them (the snow patterns) together and add more layers of fresh frozen snow powder on the surface of the snow foam . You know to give it that sheen affect. Cold and crystallized . I must say I'm happier with this way than the melting caps affect.

    From this to this if one just 1 person font like what I did then I will change the outcome! Krule bear and bfok are another reliable sourcethey stated the first results did not come across as snow ! So I have a rule if 1 just 1 person finds something out of place then I will 1) consider if its true 2) make a final decision based on feedback and then only then will I way my options test out a secondary result and then 3) decide to change it. I'm very big that the artist doing the piece has the final say or nay ! But remember if Papa DRAGINSREACH didn't mention the reds as a shade I wouldn't have produced a wonderful result on my newest ork nobz (VOTE AND COMMENT BTW..lol) and if krule bear and bfok (bfok gave me some valuble tips on snow)didn't mention the snow was falling short of looking like snow then I wouldn'thave changed my final appearance of my spacewolves cmmndr krom dragon gaze ! I'm happy I did , however listen to them both along with others of what I call the panel extraordinaire (BFOK , Demi human , and in these circumstances krule bear and papa DRAGONSREACH! Thank you to all you guys. Guys are golden !!!
