EM4 28mm Future Skirmish Rebel - Army Painter Matt Varnish problem

Hello again to all and sorry for the big delay since my last post.
Holidays, painters block etc are all to blame.

I painted a couple of very old figures I found while raking through old boxes and this is one of them.  I cannot remember who the original maker was but this and others are now sold by EM4.
I used my usual Army Painter Varnish, new tin,  but ended up with a lot of white dots on the figures.  I managed to get most off,  but once photographed there were a lot more visible, so in the bin went the tin. Its a case of once bitten twice shy with me so I am now using Games Workshop Purity Seal and am happy with results.
The white dots are barely visible now unless photo is zoomed in on, but they are there and very annoying.

Thanks for looking and any comments or questions are most welcome.



  1. Wonderful road warrior figure there and lovely painted too. The figure was original part of the Future War range by Grenadier Models and they where sculpted but Mark Copplestone. You should check out his website as there are some up to date versions

  2. Great figure and painting - I've had the same problem with Army Painter Varnish but as it was at the end of the can I just binned it and started on a new one. no problems as yet but I'll be keeping a closer eye on it now.
