|Ruined building painted by Patrick.|
The table, like most of HT tables, was built, painted and modeled by HT's Patrick. He has done brilliant work on these tables and they are a joy to play on. The Snow Table is lacking in terrain however. I have always felt a tad guilty about not having contributed to these tables like others have, which is why I painted the street lights for one of the other tables recently.

At the end of the last game session I had there, I took home one of the uncompleted pieces that had been donnated by one of the players. I intend to paint it for the snow table but I need to match it as close as I can to Patrick's models. I asked him what paints he used but his answer ("a lot of different blues!") wasn't particularly helpful, so these pics I took will hopefully guide me.
I took pics of the table itself as well as some of the other features, so that I could try to match the ruin's base as close as possible.
Here the model I brought home. It clearly could use some attention, yes?

The first thing I wanted to do was apply grit to the base. In the end, most of it will be painted to appear like snow.
|The grittier the better.|
|And it's 10°F as well.|
Also, at this time I have a line of miniatures waiting to be primed outside: 20 plastic Daemonettes, Concord c3-strike-troopers, and few other odd-ball minis and models. They'll just have to wait for now. 😀
