I paint small metal and plastic figures and rarely get to play with them. But that is fine with me.

Winter Wonderland (Part 1 - Craters Redux and a Frosty Cabin)

This model is by Charlie Foxtrot models from their Eastern front range. I didn't want to go over the top on the Winter weathering as it's just gonna get messed up during games over time.

The craters also got a bit of a sprucing up and I think look far better than previous.

I still have 2 more small huts to build also by Charlie Foxtrot models , Some snowdrifts to carve out of Polystyrene and some Trees that need to be winterized & based along with a felt road that I'm going to add some snow effects to. All together, they should provide enough stuff to make for an interesting tables worth of stuff to play through.

  1. Craters have turned out well and nice huts, I guess I'll have to do some slightly snowy terrain once I've got my soviets done, I've got to go at least a bit snowy!

    1. Cheers Iain.
      I think every Soviet project should involve at least a light dusting. :)

  7. Hi Dai,
    I think maybe it should be you doing a book on winter terrain, looks spot on.


    I came back on your blog as I am going through the list notifying those who have shown an interest in my book to send an email to kerstinsmith1234@gmail.com if they still want to order. If you have already done this, then just ignore me.

    Cheers,

    Pat.
