I have painted the Minis in this game so I can differentiate the different factions. I have primed the units and then given them a coating of one colour. Units were painted over two months ago and are still slightly sticky and some of the paint is coming off. Has anyone had success painting these minis and will a varnish likely protect the paint? I am concerned that a varnish will just melt the outer layer of paint, as it does not feel dry enough.

My models are not sticky. I used the following process:

1. Wash with soap and water
2. Straighten bent models by immersion in hot water
3. Base coat with Games Workshop black spray paint
4. Hand paint with Games Workshop water based paints and washes

I did not give my models a varnish and they have held up fine. If you expect heavy use they could be given a matte spray varnish.

I have had sticky miniatures that were painted by somebody else. I added a few coats of Testors Dullcote and they turned out great.
