Hallelujah! Praise the Lord (Of wargaming:tongue: ). My warmachine has finally arrived. I've been waiting 6 months for this, and finally, the company I ordered it from got off their arses and sent it to me.
I have the real Magnus the Traitor battlegroup, no more proxying my friends Cygnar (although they are quite similar). What do you guys think I should get next to complement what I already have? Maybe that Gorman Di Wulfe guy, and the Mule looks sweet.
Also, How do you guys put you're jacks together? The body parts are really awkward, like the Manglers legs are about 1/4 the size of his body. Someone told me you have to pin them, buy how do you do that?
Some of my 'jacks limbs are made so they fit into a socket on the body, so I don't pin those. Others I have had to pin.
You need a very fine drill bit or a tool called a pin vise. Both do the same thing: make a hole in the miniature. You also need some stiff wire (rod) which is as thick as the hole you are making.
Let's say you want to 'pin' an arm. Dtill a small hole in the 'jack and drill a small hole in the arm. Then cut a short length of wire. Put it in the hole in the jack, add superglue, and fit the arm on. The rod now inside will give it extra strength to help keep it from popping off during normal use.
"The sword that takes life gives life."
I also tend to use a little bit of green stuff to further reinforce a pin set. Do everything like Montford says up to the glueing. Make a very small pancake of green stuff, about the same width as the socket, put a drop of superglue in the socket, put the green stuff in the socket, push the pin through the green stuff into the hole you drilled, put a drop of superglue on the green stuff, then put the arm/leg/whatever into the socket. The green stuff fills any gaps in the join and it's an absolutely bomb-proof joint.
