Winter Guard 02
I was inspired by the Russian coats and German uniforms of World War Two and found paint recipes online for both. The helmet and armor were done with two layers of white wash -- and I'll do one layer on future models.
The head is from Pig Iron but I'm going to try another test model on a standard Cadian head to see how I feel about it. I'd much rather use straight GW products, so it's a competition legal army, but I'm not terribly inspired by the available heads.
The snow was made with baking soda and PVA glue. Nothing exciting there. It's still my favorite snow recipe. A bit thick on this one, perhaps, but that too can change for future models.
