Cold at night, but no snow in North Africa ;)

Moscow 1941 Methinks more likely :)

I tried fooling around with verious methods of making 'snow' before encountering the splendid Woodland Scenics Snow (effectively fine white flock). So far I've used it with 6, 15 and 20mm toys as well as covering a set of Hexon terrain tiles as seen here:

A friend of mine and I spent three days building a 6'X 4'snow table to play games on a few years back. We used mixable pollyfilla with baking soda, PVA glue and a tiny bit of dark blue paint for the base, then while wet we sprinkled more baking soda over the top to give it a nice crust. After it dried we sprayed it with some silly cheap glitter spray he got in a pound shop somewhere. The effect was an average snow-table from above, but when you bent down for a LoS check or similar the effect was amazing.

Sadly his two younger brothers got drunk with their friends in the gaming shed and decided that it would be *really* fun to break all the snow off the board....
