I don't find much of a problem with most plastic minis, but occasionally I have noticed the first base coat running away from certain spots. Even on Dwarvenite. A quick scrub isn't a big deal; 60 floors went by in no time.

I have had no trouble with DF paints at all. DF works as a good primer on a lot of resin also.

Golden Acrylics also works just fine on fresh, unwashed Dwarvenite.

I, too, have never washed any of my Dwarvenite before painting and haven't had any problems with adhesion (using Pokorny paints).

I have never had to scrub dwarvenite. I scrubbed some resin from another KS this week, then found out the primer works fine on scrubbed or non scrubbed so I was a bit miffed.

Scrub-a-dub-dub, it's Doom in the tub! Prepping has begun for many painting sessions.

Odd that the glitter walls are glitterless in unpainted Alcoves, but can only be bought painted as add-ons. I would like mroe unpainted ones, not sure how bad the glitter would get me.
Looks like we have the rare chase piece of the set potentially. Like the crocodiles were in KS3.

The unpainted walls of force would make great walls of ice.
Yes, they would. I'm going to wait on my add-on walls to figure out the best common ground for painted/unpainted.
