Little Wars begins today! I will be painting these Norwegian troops (28mm for Bolt Action) as well as the French Foreign Legion. I enjoy painting both of these armies, since they are so different in appearance from the forces which I have been working on.
The Norwegians in particular have a unique look, even though the color is green.
I know that for game purposes people tend to separate the machine gun team figures like this, but I enjoy creating these "mini dioramas" or vignettes.
The snow was done using the usual Secret Weapon Miniatures crushed glass technique. This is very handy for creating a variety in the snow, such as a more melted look. While other materials imitate fresh fallen snow very well, you can't have the range of partially melted to frozen solid!
