MODELLING THE ARMY OF THE WHITE WOLF

BASING

My army is based on snow bases. When I first got the models I was particularly inspired by the Kislev horse archers and felt they would look awesome on bases of snow, rather than the unusual grass green. I also knew I would have to make completely new scenery for Warmaster, as it's a different scale, and I'd always fancied having some snow terrain, so with that, snow bases was decided upon.
In many ways bases are the hardest part of painting a Warmaster force, and knowing what I know now, I can't recommend my technique of basing to anyone. However, I've started, so I'll finish....

For anyone else mad enough to base this way these are the steps I follow

The tricky parts are the last three steps. You'll almost certainly find yourself having to retouch the paint on some of your lovingly painted models.
I've subsequently found a product that is like a kind of snow flock for basing models. It looks great, especially when combined with static grass and sand. I may well use that instead for my Warhammer scale models, however having based a big chunk of my army already, I think I'm going to have to persist with the current method.

PAINTING

Painting Warmaster models is surprisingly easy, if a bit fiddly. Don't be put off by the small scale of the models, it's actually a benefit as you can't physically add all the detail you would to a larger figure.

These are the steps I follow
