Hey I am painting my friends chaos models and have gotten to his fleshhounds and I have a few questions.
-first, how in the world do you guys get these things to stay together? They seem to be teflon covered as my super glue is like water to them.
-second, what bases should I use? They come with both round and long, and I don't plan to play fantasy. It seems like with the new rules it will be easier to deploy them with round bases because they will follow deepstrike rules. However it seems like aren't in the new codex rumors is there any chance they would get left out for a long period (I think I would still be worth modeling them if it were only a year or so).
-Finally, does anyone use these things? They seem expensive for what they do if you are fighting MEQs, I guess they would be nice at killing hordes of orks though...
1. I haven't built any myself.. but as with all multi part metal models, gluing, pinning, green stuff and praying all work.
2. Cavalry is ok, they'd look cool on 40mm bases though. Just remember, deepstriking and summoning aren't the same at all! they're similar, but they aren't arranged in deepstrike formation.
3. I've yet to see a list that features them. They're outpriced by furies and screamers.

And remember metal figures are better then plastic ones =o] :yes:
FluffMaster on a mission to turn people to the Sisters of battle, yes folks it's all about SoB squads in Repressors with lots of flamer templates for the win.
Hey,Crosshatching works well with gap-filling adhesives. IE styrene or epoxy.I would score where the surfaces are going to connect
For metal-to-metal CA bonds, I find a mirror-finish join is best.
File both mating surfaces as smooth and as flat as possible.
WARNING: This method results in an almost instantaneous bond!
Do all your fitting and posing work *before* applying glue.
With metal Citadel models, you can't worry too much about gaps.
Focus at first on getting the poses right, and let GS sort 'em out.
