Default Ruined ice city idea!

I have been thinking about this for a long time, and I would like to know what people think of it.

I was think of setting up a ruined city, then snow flocking it, so to create the theme of an abandoned city, which frosted over with snow and ice over time!

I was thinking of having most of the ground covered in differing levels of ice, with a few bits with no snow. then putting some snow in the corners of the buildings, so to create a natural look.

What do you think of my idea? ;D

I've always like snowy cities. I don't know why. Maybe because it reminds me of Christmas, or maybe just because it looks awesome as terrain. I've seen it quite a few times in the Cities of Death battle reports and advertisements White Dwarf has inside their monthly magazines. A few cities built like that, a few photoshop pictures, etc. It's a very cool looking thing. Go for it.

I'd pick up at least one GamesWorkshop city terrain piece, as they look awesome in snow, but from the on, it shouldn't be too hard to make a completely homemade snowy city. If you have any questions whilst building the board, here's the place to ask.

I reckon it's a good idea, it's something I've always wanted to do. Unfortunately being a student i'm limited to space so I just scatter snow flock on my city board when I want a snowy theme but I want to do a more gothic, ruined city snow board in the future.

If you get the chance, play Soul Reaver 2 as one of the levels on that may be exactly what you're looking for.

What is it about Warhammer 40,000 that makes people suspend their disbelief by the neck until dead?

I'm back!
