    Question on assembling models

    Hey, I was trying to assemble a box of ork boys today, and for some reason the majority of the torsos do not fit properly onto the legs. Is this normal? What are you supposed to do when this happens?

    Do they have a little rounded part where the butt should be?

    They fit into the legs like a ball and socket IIRC.

    I knew that, and a few of them fit together quite well. But a couple of them have an oversized "ball part" and it doesnt fit properly into the socket. should i just glue it as is, and then try to fix it with greenstuff?

    paint the hollow section of the legs black, put the ball joint in whilst the black paint is wet, and where there is black paint transferred to the ball, file away, as that'll be where the interference is. Then you can get a nice snug fit...
