    i've read the article on adrian wood(ork guy from GW) about painting his battlewagon(from forgeworld), and he says that he dipped his models into soap water to get rid of resin 'dust and 'debris'...
    exactly what are they? and what effect will they have on painting?

    Dust and debris are the bits of resin (plastic, metal, etc) that you cut off, or file/sand off, the miniature during assembly. Every casting has some mold lines or seams that remain from the mold. People sand these off so they don't show up after painting. This sanding creates dust that will prevent the paint from sticking, and small bits of plastic that will look like gravel stuck on your mini if you just paint over it.

    You should wash your minis in warm soapy water and rinse them well before painting regardless. This removes oils and mold release on the mini and helps the paint to stick better.

    Resin dust is especially hazardous to breath in, so don't.

    Not to mention the greases from touching the figure.
    If Wolves were meant to fly, wouldn’t the Emperor have given them wings?

    Oh and another tip...
    Don't keep the resin parts in the water for to long or they will become softer and more suspectable to bending and disforming.

    Luke-warm should not damage plastics.
