Does anyone have a guide to modeling and painting Forge World miniatures?

If your asking for a torrent of a file that would be considered lawbreaking I would advise you not to ask that question because the mods dont like it and it can get you into trouble. But if your asking on us personally on how to paint and model forgeworld models then thats okay. Please though be more specific in your question. Like 'Does anyone know a good way on painting and modeling forgeworld products?'
Try the usual Painting and Modelling forums. You're not restricted to 40K and Fantasy there. Some people post pics of non-GW minis.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
Well I was asking for personal advice or mabey a guide on the forums.
Could you please start sentences and the like with a capital in the future? Appreciated. -AFG//

- Be gentle, resin is typically more brittle than plastic. Especially the thin parts.
- Bent parts can be straightened by dipping them in hot water for a bit, bending them straight (they'll be rather pliable) and letting it cool in the new position.
- Don't breathe in any sanding/filing/cutting dust - seriously not good for you.
- Wash the parts in warm soapy water before painting - mold release and paint don't mix.
- When in doubt, pin it. Pinned joints are vastly preferable to glue alone.
- Also, plastic glue is useless. Super glue is good, Epoxy is better.
- Take your time. You paid a lot for it, don't wreck it for some silly rush!
EDIT: You might try the Forgeworld FAQ area, too. Here's their How-to page.
