Conversions are simple arm swaps and removing the silly bits of terrain some of their feet were attached to. The latter gives a better impression of landing and also eliminates the image of these highly trained soldiers landing on sharp piles of rubbish.
The snow is PVA, water and baking soda. The mud was applied using water, pastel pigments and PVA; I also dipped the brush in static grass every now and then for additional effect.
Additional stowage is from Venderlein -- although I'll apply it differently on future vehicles and not add any cloth to the hull. It's snowing, raining and horrible -- not so much "put your backpack on the tank" weather.

The colours were client specific but I asked to practice my NMM on this one. Except for the basket on his sword I'm pleased with the results. At this stage he's roughly 50% completed.
The model itself has been a pleasure to paint. I'm likely to get one of these for myself.
