RGFX will soon launch a Kiki campaign to fund a mini fog machine for miniatures games. This machine will produce a mysterious mist for mysterious atmospheres …
A 28mm building will even be available to hide it.
The options would be great… imagine a battle camp with that smoke!…

That's funny. I wonder if the temperature or humidity would start affecting the paint on your miniatures or your scenery.

Then the fire department gets called in during the convention. If you want to do this get dry ice and put it into some water (inside the hidden compartment with holes poking out in strategic locations).
As far as the paint jobs go, as long as the figures are dull or gloss coated they are sealed and the paint should not be affected.
Don't forget to seal the stands. I had cardboard stands but didn't seal the bottoms and they warped when I used them on a sand table (used water to shape the sand so it was wet). :<

Many years ago (might still do) the Royal Australian Navy used a smoke generator that used glycerin/water to produce the smoke to simulate onboard fires. Great smoke, very thick but afterwords everything was covered in a very thin film of glycerin oilyness. Supposedly wasn't harmful to health but your laundry bill was huge!

In my younger and more foolish days, I used to produce similar effects with a good cigar!

I don't know about that, if they get loose they'll get on the floor, and after squishing some of them underfoot…

(oops! Read that title wrong… ;-)
