Vostroyan Infantry Color Test

I just finished the color test model for the vostroyan infantry. He came out pretty well and I even found the passion to include OSL effects for all the lenses. Time spent including basing was about 2,5 hours. I started from a primed (black) model and included the color testing and preparing the model snow. I think I can push the timelimit to about two hours on the next models- maybe even a little more when I do it in an assemby line.

Talking about snow- what do you think- is there any alternative to it since the guys are wearing winter head gear?

    You know, it didn't even occur to me that it should be snow due to the heavy-winter gear. I used my standard basing scheme and it looks fine, but I see you're coming from a more artistic place, so snow is probably best.

    Hi Brent- thx for the feedback. Care to share some of your Vostroyan pics? I would be really interested to see them.

    The snow lloks really good and suits the mini - I really like how you have modelled it onto the bottom of the feet like it would do in real life.
