Thanks for the tip, Deet. I am looking forward to try that.
Meanwhile I am still going at the map. It was to reflective, so photographing it was challenging.
Since I want to photograph future battles I had to fix that.
A matt varnish spray did not cure it enough, so I went at it with heavily watered down pigments.
With only a little bit of pigment I was able to cover the entire map and fix the reflection.
After spraying it once more with matte varnish it looks way better!
This picture was taken with a flash and perspective corrected, hence the lighter bottom tiles.
As you can see: almost no reflection any more, even with a flash! Happy with that!
The tiles are such that I can move them around and create a few different looks.
Next post I will update on some of the buildings I am currently building/painting.
