  1. I do not understand how this mini is supposed to go together. There is a large hair bulge that is supposed to fit in the hollow of the back. I tried sliding and twisting and cannot get the head to fit on in a dry fit. I cant imagine doing this after painting. I don't really want to try and paint and be unable to get into corners. Has anyone posted this anywhere? Things got caught and I see white stress marks on the mini where I had to try and force it off and it makes me super nervous to try anything again. This is exactly why I would 100 times out of 100 take a poorly glued at the fact
  2. I received the Thunderworm from Reaper and it is marvelous. I have six pieces for it. The wheels are the same, obviously. But it seems that I have an extra piece. I have two axle-beam supports. In all the images where this product is assembled, it doesn't seem to have a second one. Should I have only rec'd five pieces or is there a place where the second axle-beam support is supposed to go that I missed? Thanks! EDIT: I sent an email to Reaper support and they indeed have confirmed that it is an extra piece. This product only should have five parts. Question answered!
  3. Hey all! My DDS 2 came in the mail today, and I pulled out the tower to look at it. Boy does that stuff feel weird to an guy who has pretty much only done metal, with some resin here and there! So, what kind of Glue does one use to assemble the tower???? I read Wren's post that super glue was best, but this material makes me wonder... Is this most people's experience? Also, do most folks base the whole this as a piece, or leave them separate? Thanks in advance! 8) George
  4. Hello everyone, I just received a mini in the mail today and was wondering what the best way to go about assembling the cape for it was. The miniature in question is a resin mini called Dieter Kaufmann who I will be painting up like Malcom Reynolds for Starfinder. I'm going to be painting the back of the legs before I put it on so I can actually reach it, but I was wondering if simple CA glue would be sufficient to keeping the cape on. I've attached a picture of the separated pieces.
  5. Just checking. I am soon to assemble my first small-scale multipart resin miniatures, the sort with a number of possibly fiddly bits (Eyeballing them quickly, it looks like things like arms were fairly well-designed, with integral pin/pegs and corresponding shoulder holes already provided). I have assembled great slabs o' resin before, but this is the first delicate resin I've had to glue. On the whole I favor epoxy as glue, but would cyanoacrylate glue be a better choice for little minis? Any tips? The figures are more or less Egyptian-style cat people ("The Republ
  6. Being that I am 39 and rapidly approaching 40... miniature assembly (while still enjoyable) has become more of a chore... So what miniature ranges/companies/etc to you absolutely love putting together, and which are your bane and why...? Love em Wrath of kings- Resin/restic models. I know some hate restic, but these have grooves that make assembly easy. They are dynamic with only having really one or two ways to go together. I especially love the bigger models. (C.A.G.E., werewolves, etc....) The smaller models are ok, some though have fiddly bits (like the nasier back spikes) but
  7. So I started a dragon a couple of days ago, and I have been having a little bit of difficulty with it. After reviewing some of the other works in progress posts I noticed that, in some cases, people don't assemble the pieces until after it is painted. Is this a common practice? For example, if I am painting a dragon with wings that are not sculpted on, is it better to paint them before putting them on? Does it really matter? Thanks! CAH
  8. I've noticed that when I get minis that come in multiple pieces, they often don't line up precisely. The bigger the mini, the more gaps and distortion there seem to be. Specifically, I recently got #10006 Gauth (!!!GRANDFATHER! OF DRAGONS!!!)!) and the pieces of the body have some significant gaps now that I've got him assembled. I'd like to paint him for the 2015 annual diorama contest, but before I prime I'd like to make sure my finished product is going to look smooth and complete. Does anyone have any suggestions? What materials do you use? Etc. Also, I've never done a fig
  9. I received my Starhawk from Reaper and was wondering what tips you guys might have for assembly and painting. I am probably going to pin the arms, but was wondering if folks painted the pieces and them assembled or assembled and the painted? When I dry fit the pieces, it looked like the side of the cockpit and nose assembly would be hard to paint with the Gatling guns on the side. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
  10. Okay, Leanne ... TURN AROUND AND LEAVE THIS TOPIC. J/K. She's not on the forums. I think. Anyway, the Jabberwocky in question is not the Bones Jabberwock from the Kickstarter. Those disappointed may want to stick around anyway. Feel free to comment or point and snicker. Here it is: I got this on the holiday clearance sale at FRP Games last December. The manufacturer: As you can see I already pulled it out and played with it a bit to see how it assembles and what shape it's in. Overall it's a stout figure with the caricature wings and a fairly standard
  11. So my reaper minis finally came in the mail! Yay! They're awesome, but I'm having a little trouble with the assembly so if any of you more experienced folks could help me out I'd really appreciate it. Issue #1: One of the figurines' legs are spread in a manner that does not fit the base. Namely, the Cthulhu one (the Kaladrax is giving me a little trouble too but not as much). I would litterally have to bend the legs awkwardly to make it fit on its base. Is this normal for reaper products? What do I need to do to fix it? Or do I need to call reaper and ask them for an exchange? What does ev
