    i dont know about anyone else...but it is a pain in the arse when you paint a metal model and then they magicaly chip and fade! Arggh!
    ne who, i thought about using a fixatiff on my models to keep the paint lookin good and was wondering if anyone else uses this stuff or what exactly do others use?
    i just want to be able to preserve my painting and not have to touch them up all the daggone time!
    thanks.

    I use Games workshop Matt finish for a duller finish, and Kyrlon gloss for a shiny touch. Most of the time I do a coat of the gloss to give a stronger coat to protect the model, and a light coat of GW matt to cut the shine down a bit. This works great to stop chipping and fading, and the models only suffer when they are dropped on a hard wood floor. (Even then plastic is more likely to break than chip.)

    Yes, the &#39;ardcoat sold by GW works wonders. Tough, unchippable and doesn&#39;t attract dust. If you don&#39;t like the glossy finish, you could always get rid of it with Purity Seal or a similar matt varnish.
