I bourght a metal model from Games Workshop. I cant put the model onto the base because the stand-bar-thing wont fit in. Can anyone help?
there is a bit at the front, that is like two places where there isnt as much metal, its thinned out, and then a hook at the end of it. thats all at the front. I think that was part of the mould and it should come off, but my friend said that it might make it not stand up if i cut it out, because its a plastic base... is it worth a try, or should i take it back?
it was the Space Marine Chaplain with Jump Pack
I have the same guy, mostly purchased as the model is cool as all heck. I am not sure exactly what your describing, but I had to clip off, and then bend the tab to properly fit into the base slot, as well as file the underside of the rocks so it would sit flat.
Your going to find that most of the metal models need more cleanup work compared to the plastic ones, and all of them are a bit 'top heavy'
I doubt that what your seeing is unusual and you should be able to fix it I would think.
get the base, and hold it above the base to see what bit (Of the "Tab" with the writing "chaplain" on it) doesn't fit. File down that bit (gently) then repeat process untill it does fit. Superglue in place. The tab may need to be straightened if it's bent.

Yep, listen to crunchy.
After putting together about three-dozen metal models in the last month or so, I've got used to having to strip large amounts of 'flash' from the model, especially the base.
Things to note, dont remove the entire bar, as it will make basing far more difficult later on, and providing you leave _some_ of the bar in place, green-stuff can help fill out some of the base slot to provide more support. Superglue works wonders bonding metal to plastic, just use small amounts and hold in place for a good 5 minutes for more stable results.
Hope you get it sorted mate!
im doing it in a couple of mins
