Hey,

I'm currently assembling the (gorgeous) new plastic Haemonculus and am at kind of a conundrum here: how do I do the subassemblies (if any) best in order to be able to reach every part of the model when painting it? It's such a detailed model and so "3D-y". Just assembling everything doesn't seem to be the right way; leaving off the arms would mean having to scrape off the basecoat on the areas I'll put the glue later and... I just don't know how to do it all.

Anyone care to share how they did it? Smile

Honestly, I just assembled the entire model and painted it in one go. The model's lower left arm was magnetized for weapon options, but otherwise assembled. Painting it that way was absolutely not a problem with all of the parts in tact.

Allright, I'll just do so too, then!
I just really didn't want to mess up this pretty, pretty miniature. Smile

Thanks for the input!
