First, there was the humble Citadel Painting Handle – this simple tool was a runaway hit, making it easy to paint your model and eat a bacon sandwich without ruining your finish. Then they got bigger, sprouted arms to aid assembly, and even turned red so you could spot special models when batch-painting. This updated Citadel Colour: Painting Handle is the biggest improvement on the revolutionary tool since its inception. Our design team has retained everything that made the original great, while evolving the design based on hard-won experience.
We've all been there – time slows as your hand nudges an (inevitably brand new) pot of paint past the tipping point, and you're powerless to prevent the contents splashing in a tidal wave of vibrant, heavily pigmented liquid disaster across your models, hobby desk, lap, and even the carpet. But now, there’s a better way.
Designed for painters, by painters, the Citadel Painting Handle makes it much, much easier to hold your miniatures securely while painting them. It allows you to find the perfect angle from which to reach every part of your model while avoiding the hand cramps that can come from holding a base for a long time.
The perfect tool to use when assembling some of our more complex miniatures, the Citadel Assembly Handle is designed to hold components securely in place while glue takes hold. Sometimes, a tiny component can require holding in place for several minutes as the glue dries – the soft, spring-loaded clamps found on this tool can be manipulated on their ball and socket joints into virtually any position, freeing up your hands to move onto clipping the next piece off its sprue ready for action
