How do you dust your minis!

I refuse to dust each individual one but things like my LOTR goblins are wo spiky to have a duster run over the top of and two light to be blown!

Even simpler! Just blow on them with a hairdryer!

Well, I dont know what you\'re all on about but I suggust following my rule:

Nothing is ever too spiky for \"dusting\". Ever.

EDIT: Talk about slow... Dusting! Now I get it, I was think of alternatives to dry brushing... Yes, slow, I know.

How about one of those hand-held fans, that might work..

A good way is to get a cloth like a duster or table cloth and wet it with water, then with the cloth dripping wet put the goblins ect in it and wrap it up. The water should drip onto the minis instead of pouring on them like with a tap.

Ok, you\'re going to look all girly, but buy a make up brush, for blusher. The bristles are extremely soft and navigate around spikes no problem, and voila, dusted miniatures.

Just dont use an old one or you\'ll end up blushing mini\'s intead...

You could always just smash them up with a hammer. That usually gets rid of the dust!

This\'ll come in handy once I\'ve finished my DIY, sawdust from the kitchen worktops everywere at the mo.

Indra\'s suggestion sounds good.
