Hi everyone

Say, does anyone of you happen to know, whether there are any winter themed miniatures?
Preferably themed in a way making them suitable for a snowball fight?

Stuff like soldiers in a winter uniform, bear hunters with warm caps dressed in fur ... yeah, I know a few (but not much, frankly).

But just some guys and gals throwing around snowballs outside the print and play world?
Hmm ..

Do you know more than I do?



Thank you and kind regards,
Kai

Woodland Scenics has a "Snowball Fight" set of figures in HO scale: http://woodlandscenics.woodlandscenics.com/show/Item/A1894/p...

For soldiers, you might look for Finland or Soviet winter wars figures. For example http://wk.frothersunite.com/sc/pulp/ww2axis.htm. Of course, unless the figure is throwing a grenade, the pose may be all wrong for converting to a snowball thrower.

Thanks, Kent

HO is a bit small, though ...
Those "guys with guns" might lead to a misunderstanding regarding the term "snow fight" ...

But seriously, there are "gothic-victorian-steampunk-scifi-horror miniatures", but now snowball toting orks, dwarves or elves?
(Or even: Humans?)

Somehow I have a hard time believing in that ...



Kind regards,
Kai

Team Frog Studios has a miniatures game call "The Christmas Wars", where you have Santa, elves, etc. vs. evil minions. I think everyone is toting guns rather than just throwing snowballs.

I just found some by Mark Copplestone:



and



Hmmm ... Nah ...

Still now snowball tossers

Weird ...

Let's put the question a bit different:

Are there any ball tossing miniatures around (such as Blood Bowl's minis), that are dressed for a winter match (instead of summer uniform)?



Many thanks and kind regards,
Kai
