Snow, snow and more snow

I made a small diorama for a competition over at CDO (Chaos Dwarf Online), and it invloved making model snow. What an experience that was, and so out of context for me. As it is the middle of summer here in Australia. Anyway I learnt how to make snow, and here is the final result. It needs a little touch-up here and there, but it is finished enough, to be uploaded. Enjoy.

Space Marine Colour Scheme

I remeber buying my first box of Space Marines, back in the early 1990s. It was a box of plastic Rogue Trader marines. I painted them blue, and then green ... and then brown. That was the extent of it. I never really returned to 40K, except purchasing a few Imperial Guard to paint. I realised I am more of Fantasy fan than a 40K fan.

About a year ago, I purchased a box of 2nd hand Space Marines, and I had intentions of painting them up into the "United Nations" colours. I tried a few test models, but I wasn't entirely satisfied. Which was more of an issue with my painting skill, rather than my colour scheme. So, instead  I looked for a different colour scheme, and I think I have found something I like. Here are a few samples of what I want to do.

Here is the original colour scheme for th "United Nations" Marines.
