Puppet Wars - Big Updates
That said, the puppets have still been a joy to paint and the game is still a lot of fun. I really do like this game. I guess I'll just have to wait and see what the future has in store.
In the meantime, when I say I have 'completed' several puppets, I finally mean that they are complete. Painted, based, varnished and ready for the board.
I've been experimenting with several varnishing techniques over the last year or so and still haven't found just the finish I am exactly looking for with the many sprays I have tried. In the meantime, I've resorted to hand painting varnish recently. Time consuming, yes, but a good finish and a good way to ensure I actually do varnish them and not skip the step like I've done in the past.
For the puppets, I wanted to make them look more like game pieces than their Malifaux counterparts. To that end, the bases were varnished with multiple coats of glass varnish, while the puppets themselves have 2 coats of a matte varnish.
Let's take a look at the rest of the pictures. What do you think?
