Hi there!

Have any of you tried painting your cardboard tokens with varnish to prevent them from being worn? If so, how did it turn out?

There's several examples of this in the picture gallery.
Even with complete instruction (I wish I could tell which thread that was).
I haven't tried it myself sofar, as I still have to find the right varnish, but I understand people find the result really satisfying.

Yes, if they are clearly unvarnished and I know they will get a lot of handling in normal play. Fine. Sometimes counters feel slightly rough, but it makes them easier to handle!.
Take care with ventilation and expect a lot of drift so protect the surrounding area if you have to work indoors.

In my opinion, it is unnecessary and strictly for the obsessed. No offense.

When playing games like StarCraft and A Game of Thrones it is essential for the game experience that the order tokens are unworn, otherwise you can predict your oponents moves.

I have tried GW's varnish which i applied with a normal brush. It worked out really well
