I was assembling my Spearmen but accidently glued there feet down to the wrong side of the bases so now their standing on a real angle, I turned there bodies and heads around so its realistic now but now there shields are at the front and there holding there spears right at the back of the base. Plus if you take one model out of the squad its full on looking one way and one way only.
This looks awful, plus I never ever want to game with models such a disgrace to my High Elves plus im only 12 so I can really only afford 1 boxed set over 2 months tops. The glues gone hard beoned repair so what should I do? I dont rekon I could sell them to anyone, I dont want to use ebay either.
Im going to try using some different stuff and experiment, please see my progress.
modelling clip the feet from the bases (i know this will cause dammage)
then green stuff the dammaged areas flat...
when there painted no-one will know the difference!

If someone helps you REP them...
I do this all the time and i've been playing for about 13 years. Don't worry, just use a sharp exacto blade to slice under their feet and then glue them into the proper position. Nobody will know the difference and it shouldn't damage the models.
Hey,Just focus on not getting hurt when detaching the bases.Originally Posted by Dark Sun

Don't fret about how the bases will look.
Ballast and flock will make all the hack and slash marks go away. ;- )
The Sharp Xacto Knife is your best bet.
Don't use Super Glue for Plastics Use a Plastic Glue. Testors makes a plasticgue that gomes in a black plastic container that you can find for around $5 and will last for a LONG time and it holds plastic together better than super glue EVER could. Plus, when it is time to break peices off you can still get them off at the join without much trouble and can easily reattach them with the same plastic glue.
I use Super Glue on every single Model I build.
For two good reasons.
-I very often rewrite my lists and the selection of weapons on each model and it is so hard (groan) to swap weapons over when they have been plastic glued to the model.
-I strip models very often because I tend to write quite a few tutorials, so I have to remove the limbs in order to strip it to the best of my ability (kinda hard to get a toothbrush in the armpits).
Iunno. It's personal choice.

With no knife, have you tried just getting real close to the joint and just pulling it apart? Just be really slow and push in one direction. Also, you may just want to try something with a non-sharp edge, like a plastic putty knife, just apply pressure at the glued joint. They should pop. Good luck and just take your time.
