I have finished painting and sealing a lot of minis for this game. Is it safe to store them all together in a bag? I would rather not spend a lot of time figuring out a storing solution if they will be fine just tossing them in a bag.

It depends on your risk tolerance and you desire to keep them perfect.

I store my painted minis in bunches in zip locks. They are doing fine. But I trust my painting process leaves a very hard to damage finish. I'm not sure about yours.

May I ask what your finishing process is?

I am not really an expert and don't have much of a process. I sprayed a couple coats of a clear sealant on.

Ours are individually painted. Sticking them back in bags did a lot of noticeable damage to the paintwork. Once we had foam storage, the models were touched up and they have been fine ever since.

Thanks for this reply. Did you seal them prior to storing them in the bags?

Foam storage all the way.

No, as they were painted in stages, but finally sealed once they had all been touched up and the foam was available.

Although this sounds like extra effort, it was very easy to correct the bag damage, compared to painting them from scratch in the first place.
