Johnny,

Check out the Lowell Ego; it's great for tabletop and other small subjects like your puppet, especially if you want to create a daylight-type look. Here's the link:

Johnny,

The Ego would be a good key light and depending on its placement will be either contrasty of flat, also use of fill card or even black "negative fill" card can control the contrast.

Choose a small fresnel like a 100watt Pepper for the backlight, or enen a 6" Kino Mini Flo.

Every reputable lighting company out there has very small 100w sources. Check out what's available.
Whenever I do "tabletop" and model work I use Dedo Lights (which come with a variety of accessories), Mini-Kino Flos, or ARRI Pocket PAR fixtures with their fiber optic tube attachments. I've also used a fiber optic illuminator as a single source and run up to six tubes out as my lighting positions.
