Rajajoki Station

Our playtest of a scenario in the Winter of No Surrender series. On the first day of the Winter War the Soviets must prevent the Finns from destroying a railway station. We're using Chain of Command rules, loads of special campaign rules, and 20mm figures.

An absorbing AAR – it's a testament to the CoC rules that such a tense game game can be generated with an almost complete absence of any combat.

Great looking game. How did you make the snow-covered infantry bases?

I have used several techniques with the bases. They're mostly just washers with some mastic from the hardware store. If I want to make a smooth base, I just use white glue.

Alternatively, if I want some texture, I'll first use white glue and then apply a layer of AK Interactive's "Terrains Neutral Texture for Earth" because unlike mastic it will dry in minutes and the bottle can be re-opened and closed any number of times without clogging up.

Once the base has dried, I paint it Vallejo Foundation White (lately renamed as Cold White, I believe), and it generally looks pretty good I think. The snow effect on the hems of greatcoat is also just some of that dabbed onto the figures.
