Fresh from Ken's Workbench

If you're not already following Polyversal's designer @WeeklyWargamer (Ken Whitehurst) on Twitter, please check him out and @CEWargames as well. Ken is actively painting the remaining models needed to better show what each of the four Miniatures Options looks like for Polyversal's boxed games. This is all in response to your feedback. The end result will be 4 photos we'll add to the Kickstarter project page showing each faction painted in a consistent scheme we chose. 

This is a fair amount of work for Ken, so, please cheer him on by liking, retweeting, and sharing his progress with your following. While sharing, please also include the hashtag #Polyversal and this short project link if you can- that helps a ton!

Ken is including his painting process along with way with a few tips thrown in that you may also like, like the one in the final image shared below. 

Fully-Painted Sets

If you're interested, we offer several limited fully-painted boxed sets as limited pledges on this Kickstarter- and Ken is the painter! Hopefully the photos below will give you an idea of the process and quality of the paint jobs he'll be doing. I've played with these miniatures first-hand and they look amazing. If a few more of you are interested in out-of-the-box gaming and don't want to assemble, paint, or base, or just want a great paint job by the game's designer, pledging for one of these levels could really help propel our project toward the goal and make Polyversal a reality. If you are familiar with the pricing of painting services, you'll see it's actually a pretty reasonable rate at $500 for a boxed game (2 fully assembled, fully painted miniatures options plus the boxed game, rules, etc.). If interested in painted add-on factions, we can also paint those for you as well. Inquire directly with us about that. 

Progress Photos

Here are a few photos from Ken's stream- Painting more Dragonfly VTOLs and Drone walkers from Microworld Games for the OPFOR.

      Yea, 6mm is ripe for speed painting. No need to worry about details as much and for tabletop play, you really don't need to unless you really, really want to. I've played around with tech pens myself a bit but prefer a wash because I can be a bit of a klutz, it's quick and dirty and speaking of dirty, you can weather the vehicles at the same time you do the panels lines with a wash. Conversely, you can slap a wash on after the pen which will blend it nicely. Great tips and great work!

      Thanks for painting these, Ken! Looking great.

      Wow, thanks for the post Byron, and for the kind word, Maurice! I'll keep the photos and tips coming. A lot of people worry that painting 6mm is much harder than painting 28mm. Far from it. As you'll see, a little wash and drybrush is usually all you need to make 6mm figures "pop" on the gaming table because they are so small. Technical pens can be had for cheap, and are a great way to paint tiny black lines on minis, such as panel lines or the camo borders here.
