For the best results with resin products and we recommend you follow these guidelines.
1. If a product is especially small, you may have to remove sprues sometimes. Depending on the piece, you may need side cutters or hobby saw. If using the latter, it is recommended you use a filter mask to ensure no resin dust enters your respiratory systems.
2. Always check for fine mold lines. If you find any, they are best removed with a hobby knife, scalpel, mold line scraper, or fine sandpaper. If using the latter, it is recommended you use a filter mask to ensure no resin dust enters your respiratory systems.
3. To remove impurities from the models and thus ensure greater adhesion of paint and glue it is necessary to clean the product with lukewarm water and a detergent (or soap). A Toothbrush is especially suited for this, but other brushes, even rough old paint brushes, work as well. When the cleaning is finished, rinse off with clear water and let dry.
5. All the Resin products should be primed before painting. Any of the common spray primers or airbrushes using acrylic paint can be used for this.
6. Have fun painting and gaming!

For the best results with MDF products, we recommend you follow these guidelines.
- Please make sure you check our webpage for links to the instructions they will be found in the product you have purchased.
- All MDF products can be sealed with an MDF sealer. It is recommended to do this to minimise the undercoating of the product and possible loss of detail. I recommended to do this before you start building. Some parts will face outwards and inwards and will need a coat of paint to make them look really good so seal one side first let it dry to touch and then repeat the other side.
- Before gluing it is suggested you try to dry fit the parts together to make sure you have the correct parts.
- Sometimes a part may not fit into the required slot as it might be very tight. We suggest that you use a scalpel or craft knife to remove slithers of the join.
- Once you are happy with the fit use fast drying PVC glue to fix the joints and let the model dry until the model does not move position when you touch the item.
- Painting. Some people prefer to paint the model while it is on the MDF sheet. This is fine just remember to paint both sides. And use acrylic paints for the best results. Craft paint will be great for this don’t go using your expensive paints. Just remember to thin the craft paint down.
