So After looking around at some fancy basing and spending A LOT of time over at Massive Voodoo. I have decided to deviate from the standard rock drybrush. Starting by airbrushing some colour variation on to the rock base before I go for the highlights.
The colours I used are Matt Black, German Grey, French Blue, Livery Green, and Wolf Grey. I didnt use pure Livery Green I mixed it with the blue and grey to get a teal colour.
A shout out to Zab at Almost Perftec nice Idea to put the paints in a pic so you can match to the closest colour you have, and I can remember later what I used too!
Next I used a mixture of the same colours for each area but lighter than the airbrushing, I started off with near black and brushed with a slightly wiped brush into the deepest cracks and areas where there would be shadow. After that I used wolf grey with a touch on green in places and wolf grey with a touch of french blue in places, then pure Wolf grey. I have not highlighted up to white as I'm not sure if I the white will get lost in the snow effects.
I have decided that I'm going to go with woodland scenic soft flake snow and a mixture of realistic water for an icy feel and pva for softer powdery snow. Still waiting on my snow to arrive, post man must be busy.
