What kind of clear top coat do you use to protect your minis after you paint them? This is a big problem espically with my pewter minis because i end up having to go back and touch them up after a few games.
16,000+ of Eldar (only need flyers)
7,000+ of Nids (want heirophant)
6,000+ of Space Marines (need rever titan)
4,400+ of Cygnar (all models for the faction)
1,500+ of Legion (just started)
I use 2 things...
Krylon crystal clear non yellowing satin varnish (usually two coats) followed by about 2 coats of testor's dullcote. Seems to protect them well enough. I don't like shine on a model and the testors will kill all the shine. Very cool stuff.
Another key think to protecting your miniatures is how you store and trasport them. Make sure they are individually placed in foam and don't let the figures rub together. That is the big reason for needing touch ups.
