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 factory mini. It's effectively wasted money for me, because I can't do anything with it.
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!
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.
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 Republic of Khaliman") from a French skirmish game called "Alkemy", if that makes a difference. Lots of thin little tails and arms.
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!
