Spotted this ad online last January 2019 and screenshotted it as an interesting future idea of a Fimo polymer clay smart looking Guards regiment of snowmen? Sadly by the end of 2019 staff on South Western Railway are on strike.
Fantasy snow warriors and violent gingerbread men already exist as can be seen in this seasonal post at Rabbits in My Basement blog
Suitable snowman and seasonal figures can be found at Alternative Armies in 15mm and 28mm https://www.alternative-armies.com/collections/festive-season-15mm-range
Certainly some ideas for a creative Fimo future session.
As delightful as Jim Purky’s Der Alte Fritz Blog Teddy Bear Wars posts
and the American Civil Paw 18mm figures from Slave2 Gaming
Meanwhile back in the snow forts our Scouting Wide Game and Snow ball rules continue to be developed. Good clean fun https://manoftinblog.wordpress.com/2019/10/05/first-scouting-wide-game-snow-forts/

Having just woken up and looked out the window at the snow that has fallen overnight I feel this is a most appropriate post. I really like these seasonal figures, great fun. Loads of potential for some seasonal fun which gamers and non gamers might enjoy, who knows this may be a way into the hobby for some. I hope that tomte may appear in Tradgardland over the coming weeks…
Snow Snow! Just what you need to play with the Snow Balling rules.
The Snow table is staying out for Christmas as part of the household decorations. I shall keep a look out for Tomte footprints …
I had a little bit of white air-drying modelling clay left over yesterday and for no particular reason whatsoever rollded them into balls to make a snowman. What a great idea – I never thought of making snowmen soldiers! Maybe I’ll get working on a bearskin for that snowman?
And those Alternative Armies figures are great – I note I’m not the only one to have a “Christmas Army”! 🙂
I think your Christmas armies are fairly unique!
