Mini Assembly.

Post  Trevor Y. on Mon Sep 12, 2011 8:23 pm

It has been a while since the last time I assembled an army. What do you find the best to assemble the new finecast models, plastic and metal models? Does the GW plastic glue work good for finecast? Do you like the plastic glue? Or is Cyanoacrylic the way to go? I used to use gap filler cyanoacrylic. It used to make it easier for gap filling, but I found it did not bind as good as the thin stuff.

What do you guys like to work with?

Plastic glue will not work on resin. I use gap filling CA myself.

I use loc-tight superglue for everything, plastic, resin and metal. Seems to work just fine.

Where do you buy your superglue?

Oh also, I am thinking of magnetizing my minis to trays. I know some people buy small magnets and also some sheet metal to cut and stick them to. Has anyone bought GF9 or Back 2 Base-IX magnetic trays? Where did you pick up your supplies to do this?

I just finished assembling my Bone Giant. I just look at the TK army, and I can't wait to get my brush on them. Did some pinning and used the thin super glue. Seemed to work pretty good.

I bought the Bone Giant and some skeleton bone primer from the Den, and also bought a little thing of Devlan Mud wash to try out (I've heard many people rave over it). I am hoping this primer works okay as it will seriously cut hours off of the skeleton painting chore. My Bone Giant will be the first test to this. Bone primer + bone/white highlights + devlan mud wash might just do the trick!

I decided against white primer. I am straying away from stark white skeletons, they don't look natural enough to me, though they would be a great contrast on the table...
