    Help with pinning

    I was thinking instead I'd cram some green stuff in the large holes and stab the long bit of the arm pin in it, hoping that when the GS hardens it'll make a strong joint without the drilling? Does that sound like it would work?

    I don't actually need to drill into the main body; she was made with big holes in her body where the arms are supposed to go. They're supposed to have metal nubbins sticking out that go into the holes, but the sprue was kind of messed up and they came off wrong.

    Well... I guess it wasn't too shallow I think this may be beyond salvaging

    Ok, I watched a bunch of videos but I'm still having a lot of trouble. I feel like the hole I'm making is way too wide and very shallow. I've got no idea what's going wrong

    Question about bases

    So I recently bought Mrowl, Tigerian Merc, and when I put him in his little base I found... I'm a little embarrassed to admit I don't own a ruler. Can anyone tell me what size base Reaper is sending out with their minis so I can order a larger one?

    That's really what I'm struggling with right now. I don't even want to paint he minis I do have now, much less go deal with these stupid figures and figuring out drill bit sizes and storing putty I may never use again and trying to figure out pin sizes and lengths. Part of me wants to just trash this area of the campaign and toss these stupid figures in the bin and count the $12 as a loss.

    I honestly don't know what I should be concerned about, even. I thought these would be a cute fun figure to paint for my game, and now I'm buying drills and putty. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed.

    How long does green stuff stay good for?

    This is what it the sprue looks like I tried to get down as far as I could, but the part where it sticks off the spruce in sort of a square shape kind of blobbed into the arm a bit and they were really close together.

    I clipped them off. I definitely don't have a jeweler's saw :)

    Actually the lower arms are part of the model; only the upper arms come separate. Of the two figures, I got the model's left arm to stay put on one of the figures but not the other. I started with a little glue, but it wouldn't stay on; I tried adding more because it seemed like hole in her body was so deep that maybe the glue wasn't reaching. There are really deep holes where the arms are supposed to attach, like they're supposed to have little nubbins that go in there, but only one of the arms came off the sprue with enough metal to fit in cozily. The rest came off flat and can't bear the weight of themselves to stay up, including the left arm of the second model.

    I really am trying to be positive about it, I swear. It's just tough because I love painting, but I don't really wasn't to do sculpting and pinning and stuff. For the most part, I've been happy to just paint what I get. And since I wanted to use these minis soon, I have to order everything now to get them out in time. And everyone always said reaper help was so great and then the first time I had to go to them I just asked for replacement arm sprues and was basically told "No, just deal with it." I think I just need to let the frustration wear off and deal with it.

    Unfortunately I didn't take pictures last night and I won't be home for a while, but I will probably update with them once I do get home. I'm trying to tell myself that I was already thinking of doing some conversions in the future and I would have gotten the stuff eventually, but i have to admit being told I need $8 - 20 worth of stuff to even use my $6 mini has ruffled my feathers a bit. I'm trying to remember that I would've needed to practice anyway.

    I love the colors too! Did you use the flight stand from reaper or somewhere else?

    Thanks. I've got no experience with either pinning our green stuff, and the supplies for both are about $8 each; any idea which is a better idea? I don't thunk that the arms are too heavy; one of them came off with enough metal to insert into the arm socket and is staying put pretty well, but I'm not sure if trying to make a nub for the other arms would work. Would the green stuff stick? Or should I just skip it and try to pin it?
