so I just got my first pack of kabalites and I glued them together and afterwards noticed that the weapons block the chest area that I want to paint with edge highlights (doing the flayed skull theme) should I just base coat them and don't edge highlight them or remove the weapons?

Paint the bodies first, paint the weapon last. That way you don't care about spreading paint our your gun while you highlight the chest.

For next ones, If you want to be really clean, paint chests before gluing on weapons (recommended for characters).

If you want to be quick, glue all around, paint body first and then proceed to the weapons ; chests aren't that visible anyway (recommended for grunts).
