I just picked up this bad girl today and I am wanting some suggestions: I want to pin her arms, so i can use both options. Below is the image of she looks like now. Any suggestions? Or has anyone got this model and tried?

Hmm so the weapon arm is static and you can just put in different hands. That certainly makes it difficult... have you considered drilling the hole in her arm a bit deeper then put a magnet inside the hole, but deep enough so that another magnet (which you will put on each hand instead of the glueing-pin) will fit on top of it without being visible.

Given the typical slender Eldar appearance, you will probably have to use a 2mm disc magnet at max.

And RH stuff is really quite fine and delicate - I would be too scared to even attempt this. I will say the magnet idea makes sense, I'm not sure how pinning alone would manage...though I'll admit all of my swappable stuff has been done with magnets, so I may just not know any other method.

RH stuff is SO slender...that's why it looks so good. Personal advice? Buy a second Skaarlys! The chances of ruining it are so high, you might end up needing a spare anyway, just have two of them instead! (Ooh, twins...I need a lie down now...)

Yeah. I started using a Pin Vice on the Right side of the model I was satisfied with that side, but once I got to the slender arm on the left I started to rethink. I do believe that a second model will be needed. So Lady Malys will be born with my first one. Oh well. 20 dollars down the drain to ruin a model and not be able to use it, or 40 dollars to have two usable models. The choice to me is clear.
