How do you assemble your Grey Knight (both PA and Terminator)? I guess what I really want to know is should I pin the arms onto the models or is super glue with Green stuff going to hold it? Just wondering how other people have done it and what has or hasn't worked.
i find that, well, the terminators dont need any pinning, for hte most part, the joints they give the models are amazing.
as for the PAGK... well little can be said, their one arm is already glued on, the backpacks fit awkwardly at best on the model, so when u glue on the Halberds (or w/e NFW u are using) onto the model, make sure hte backpack can still fit on properly. A bit wouldnt hurt between the NFW arm and the model itself, but if ur patient, you can easily sit there and hold the arm in place for 2minutes and then set the model down carfully overnight.
i find tha tlistening to music helps while glueing, slows me down and lets me wait like a full song while holding an item without getting frustrated while it glues.
well, that is my two cents.
I scored the two halves (arm and body) with a knife to make the glue hold a little easier, but it does take some patience to do it.

Yeah, i especially hate it when it glues on better to your fingers than the actual model. Usually i set up some elaborate contraption to hold the 2 pieces in place overnight.
The best glue I've found is *Super Jet* glue, though adding a miniscule dab of green stuff is also very handy. The Jet glue sets very quickly, and is a very strong bond, better than the Zap-A-Gap I used to use on my PAGKs and GKTs. (Although the one nice thing about Zap-A-Gap is that it fills in gaps when it hardens....)
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

For the GK's, originally I was using glue to hold the arms on, but I had a bunch of them start falling off (didn't use any green stuff, though, that's an interesting idea). On my most recent squad, I got a little pin drill dealie and pinned the arms on the bodies with little bits of paperclip (I drilled the holes so that it's a press-fit). I've had much better success with this method, so now whenever one of my old glue-joint arms falls off, I just pin it back in place. Take a bit of patience, but it's a much stronger joint.
Regarding the Termies, though, just glue works fine, since the bodies have little nubs that fit into sockets in the arms.

I found that when using glue twist ties can be a god send. Takes some finesse but once you get the hang of it it saves time since you dont have to hold each one so long.

I just glued 2 of them together. I pinned the arms AND used greenstuff AND Zap-A-Gap to put it there. Part that took the longest was using the pin vice to drill the hole (obviously). I hope that my pin vice will last 26 more arms to drill. The metals used for the figs seems soft enough to not give me a major concern, so I'm cool with it.
I figure this thread is kind of old, but I figure I'll ask anyway:
I don't really understand the Terminator bases. It seems like the peg on the GKT's "boot" would fit into one of those holes, but the holes seem like they are on the bottom of the base. If someone could tell me what I'm supposed to be doing with them, I would appreciate it.
