The Lost Patrol Of Scouts?
Crossposted from my Scouting Wide Games for the Tabletop blog, some friendly or malevolent snowmen and how I made them from FIMO polymer clay:

Hello I'm Mark Mr MIN, Man of TIN. Based in S.W. Britain, I'm a lifelong collector of "tiny men" and old toy soldiers, whether tin, lead or childhood vintage 1960s and 1970s plastic figures.
I randomly collect all scales and periods and "imagi-nations" as well as lead civilians, farm and zoo animals. I enjoy the paint possibilities of cheap poundstore plastic figures as much as the patina of vintage metal figures.
Befuddled by the maths of complex boardgames and wargames, I prefer the small scale skirmish simplicity of very early Donald Featherstone rules.
To relax, I usually play solo games, often using hex boards. Gaming takes second place to making or convert my own gaming figures from polymer clay (Fimo), home-cast metal figures of many scales or plastic paint conversions. I also collect and game with vintage Peter Laing 15mm metal figures, wishing like many others that I had bought more in the 1980s ...

Great post andloved the tutorial. Thanks for the shout out!
Glad you liked it. Thanks for the tip off. I don’t know the Fistful Of Lead core rules so haven’t rushed to buy Snowbrawl but will keep an eye out for news of it on forums. I’m sure it will make a connection with many other people for an interesting seasonal stand alone game.
I hope the snowballer / snowmen figures work out well. I would be interested to know more about how their “simple fun rules” play out.
