Hordes Devastation Event Custom Objective

I recently attended the Hordes Devastation Release Event. One way to earn extra points for the event prior to it was to create a custom objective for your army. Doing so netted you 4 points so I thought it'd be a pretty easy way to get some extra points. The event used a one time scenario just for the event utilizing 120 mm objectives. I came up with the idea to make an objective to match my ice themed army. The idea was to make a snowy objective that looked like there was ice sunk down into the snow in the shape of the Legion of Everblight symbol.
I started with 2 CDs glued together to make the proper size base. For those that don't know a CD or DVD is exactly 120 mm. I then took some thin white craft foam cut it to fit the CD. I then printed off the Legion symbol the size I wanted, carefully cut it out to form a stencil, and sprayed the symbol onto the white foam disc.

I glued the foam onto the disc and cut the symbol out once again this time out of the foam.

Almost there. Finally I painted in a bluish color to fill the symbol area.

And lastly I added white snow flock and clear crackle paint for the icy symbol. Went to the event and ended up bringing home the event champion coin!

Here's one last close up shot of the ice
