Out in the Cold

It's been a long time since I last showed the winter Germans from Warlord Games.  This was the first use of the Secret Weapon Miniatures crushed glass on an entire army.

I had never gotten the opportunity to create a winter Army for myself, so this was very fun!

The set of metal figures is a nice one... I really enjoy the poses, with a lot of character.  This is the main infantry box:

The crushed glass snow is ideal for these kinds of projects, since you can make the snow any consistency that you need... more melted, more icy, or more like a powder.  It also has a slightly transparent, crystallized appearance when you place a bit of it on clothing or helmets.

This is also another interesting exercise in muted colors and limited palettes.  It is very essential to keep all the colors more in the cooler range, and very grayed down... even skin tones!
