Nice work.

For your snow table, you could just paint, or make a game mat.

Where in Europe are you?

I've been looking at the one you made and I think I'll take that route as well. I haven't found a suitable white sheet though.

Did you use spraycans/airbrush to create those smooth transitions?

I'm from Belgium :)

I used a paint tarp. I paited it solid and the airbrushed with craft paint thinned with water. Here is a tutorial, not the best, but it will do. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=c4inBnDwYGo

Started working on the Destroyers, but I rushed the airbrushing a bit.
I tested a metallic blue "body" on some of the destroyers and I like it. I'll paint the bodies of the rest together with all the details and go back to airbrushing after that.

But first, another project:

This is my attempt at making "American Pancakes". Our pancakes are usually much flatter and bigger, get coated with some sugar and are rolled up, not unlike a Burrito.

I think your pancakes could do with a wash of syrup and maybe try adding some highlights such as strawberries or blueberries.

I agree, but beware of Khorne syrup. It's less tasty and it could transform you into a dangerous berserker. What you want to use is maple syrup (quite expensive in Europe unfortunately though, but it won't be pushing you into murdering your own familly at least). :P
