Painting, Conversions and Modelling / Re: Figures assembly
« Last post by Kindred on September 16, 2020, 09:46:15 AM »
Hi there and welcome!

I use a cyanoacrylate glue called "Zap-a-gap". There are different consistencies and combinations - but my general go-to is the "medium" version which has good tensile strength when dry and is between liquid and gel.

regarding pinning...   it depends on how much you plan to transport your models.  If you only plan to play at home, and are careful with storage and handling, then you don't need to pin. However, if you plan to transport them and/or let anyone else handle them, then pinning is recommended. :D

I use either thin steel wire, or, in a pinch, small paperclips.
(drill the main model, dry fit the pin, mark where it hits on the limb, drill the limb, glue it all.)
There are some pretty good tutorials on YouTube for learning how to pin models nicely.


"make them straight"? 
not sure exactly what you mean, but the nice thing about metal minis is that you can bend them!
Apply slow, even pressure (if using needle-nose pliers, wrap the tips in paper towel so you don't gash the mini)
the metal is fairly soft, and will move... but it will also break if you try to jerk it too fast/hard.

What do you use to assemble the figures? Which kind of glue / epoxy. Do you use any kind of pins? It's my first time in that kind of job and I want to do it right.

By the way, how do you make them straight without breaking them?

I like them...alot.  More than I thought I would.  It keeps enough of what I love about the old.  The only thing I don't like is the non-helmeted version, but that's just me personally as I never like nor use any non-helmeted miniatures in any game system, period.
