Ok, you finally received your brand new kit and, after opening the box, you have plenty of mighty dwarfiness in your hands. I let you enjoy this moment.
"What should I do, now?!"
Well, if you're asking such a basic question, you're probably new here.
But don't worry, we all started from scratches!
A long time ago, for example, I used to drybrush the beards of my dwarves with gold, because I thought that "golden yellow" was a sort of metallic colour!
Resin could be tricky, at first sight, and needs some extra cuddles to get the best from it.
If you're dealing with resin for the first time, and you are wondering how to handle it, please give a look to the guidelines at the bottom of this page.

Before you even start to think about painting your mighty Durgin Paint Forge miniature, you have to prepare it properly.
Remove the molding lines of the sacred forge using an armadillo knife (a file or hobby knife could work too). Be careful, young apprentice, when using sharp tools!
Wash your majestic miniature with cold water and soap blessed by Tallya, in order to remove the last traces of the grease used for letting the miniature detach from the mold, then let it dry with pride and self-congratulation: if you're old enough, drink a beer and toast in the name of Grundur the all-father. If you are too young for liquors, enjoy a chinotto.
Now you are ready for the step 2.
The alchemy of Resin
Why my miniatures have different resin colors?
The "normal" color of polyurethane resin, generally, is white.
Why is so important to wash the miniatures with water and soap, before primering them?
To facilitate the removing of the resin miniatures from the mould, generally casters use specific "greasy" products, that may remain on the miniatures like a very thin coat of oil. This could make difficult to paint the miniature, so it's always better to bathe your minis with warm water (not hot!) and a soap, like Chanteclair.
Does resin melt, if left out in the sun?
Can I remove paint from my painted resin miniatures?
Of course you can!
Is resin a fragile material?
Unfortunately, thin parts of a resin miniatures are fragile.
