    Washing Painted Minis?

    So I have acquired some used minis, and am going to repaint/ touch-up some of the painting, and since some are a few dusty, I am wondering If I can wash the painted mini's without causing any harm?

    Cheers

    Just give them a drybrush but without using any paint. The dust will just fall off.

    Acrylic paints are waterproof once dry so if you really want to run them under the tap you can.

    I find Canned Air, like you use for computer cleaning, works very well in blowing the dust away.

    Soft brush, the minies are not that sensitive. I leave my favourites out on the top of my screen. I use a brush once a moth.

    Right-o, just brush them off like stated. A lot of my 40K and PP stuff sits in cabinets a lot of the time, and that's been a good solution for me.
