CCCX, War is Coming!

So here's my first ever snow/winter build. MOst of my white is too dirty to show!

"It had been a long hard winter. The snow had fallen early in the autumn and the mid thaw during the winter had barely happened.

On the main land the winter had given both sides in the war a break and the usual opportunity to call for reinforcements. The king had called on his nobles to send more archers and knights in the spring, with the Earl of Léonas in command of the army.

With spring coming the Earl needed to have his horses ready. The winter supplies were running low, so the Earl had his knights dig the snow in the fields by the river Tigelfáh, outside his castle providing fresh grazing for his destriers. With Earl, like each knight, having four destriers there was a lot of digging.

As for one of the knights, Gregory, he always thought outside the box and had taken himself of to the frozen river, with his theory that if they could get to the water it would help. His fellow knights were not convinced….."


Hope you like it!

I actuall think different shades of white can be kind of nice when trying to create a scene that involves some aging, grime, or the like. I've used varying white shades in a lockerroom scene to import a sense of grime on the walls. I think a snow scene like this one could have some along paths or the edges where the snow has been muddied by foot and hoof traffic.
