The secrets of the immortality of miniatures

Our team has put together some tips to help you protect your miniatures, and here's what we recommend:

  • Careful handling. This is the foundation of the basics. Remember that every time you pick them up, your miniatures feel it - paint can flake off, especially on thin, protruding parts of the miniature. Use glossy, semi-matte, or matte varnishes to help set the paint on the miniature and give a definite glossy or matte effect;

  • Storage. Use specialized cases or containers that will protect them from dust, light and temperature fluctuations. Store miniatures where children or pets can't reach them;

  • Repairs and Restoration. Things don't always go according to plan, and sometimes your warriors can get "wounded". Minor paint damage can be repaired yourself and broken parts can be glued back together, but if things seem difficult, don't hesitate to call in the professionals;

  • Care and cleaning. This should become your regular habit. A soft dusting brush will help keep them in pristine condition.
