Regarding: https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/chivane/sku-down/60072 ^^ this miniature I really need help with the sword arm). It doesn't mesh well, the angle the sword is held at vs the area on the wrist it attaches too makes it very awkward too. I love the pose! I love the miniature, but this is probably the third time the arms fallen off :( I'm having a really hard time trying to pin it as it's quite a small area at a bit of an angle (not flat) so it's hard to get the bit in properly to make sure the hole is at the same angle on both pieces. I tried metal glue (testor's iirc) and I tried green stuff, both of which didn't hold it. It may have been knocked once, this is my son's miniature for our RP games. I really love this mini but right now I want to throw it through the wall lol It's currently in my tupperware container getting green cleaned so I can try again, and repaint it. Sigh. I can post a pic of the area in question if that helps - but any advice or anyone who's actually mucked with this particular mini who has an idea - that'd be great!
Have people been pinning the wings of their Bones dragons? How about the large ones, like Ebonwrath? How well do those wing joins hold up to regular handling, or holding together while painting?
My Bones griffon was the first and only mini I glued together, which I did a few months back after getting my first Bones. I'm looking forward to painting a larger mini, and I thought this should be my first. There is a little gap in the right wing, and I'm wondering whether I really should fill it before painting. Here is a close-up: and here's the same picture from a distance: I've never worked with filling, sculpting, sanding etc. And I'm wondering if folks think the mini will look fine after it's painted, or if I should really fill it. (It's not going to be display piece; if ever I make a display piece, I'm years from that...) If people are of the opinion that it really should be filled, I wouldn't mind opinions on going about it. I did a search and saw Wren recommend Aves apoxie over green stuff. I just ordered some reaper green stuff earlier, but that won't be in until next week. I managed to find some Amazon Prime eligible Aves Apoxie black for under $20, so I'm wondering if I should get that. Or should I try something like Zap-A-Gap? I'm sure this kind of question has been asked and answered a hundred times over, so sorry for any inconvenience.
