Not sure if this should go to the Modeling forum, but you guys should have the answer I need here. I'm working on putting together my Windrider Host, and I'm wondering if I should paint the bike and rider separate, then glue them together or glue them first then paint. How do you guys do it?

I do them seperately, mostly because the riders are white and the bikes are dark blue. Definately fit them together before you paint them, as the riders have some problems fitting onto the bike properly sometimes.
Glue them to the bikes first, they are tricky to get on there right and aren't too much harder to paint that way if you have some patience.
Glue em first, that way if your a slow painter like me you can still game with them in the meantime..

We are the sinners, before our graves.
I keep the bodies and bikes separate. Even once they're finished they're still separate, it makes them easier to transport (mine have swords and such from storm guardians, so don't pack as well).
You can still slot them on to the bike if you've glued the arms on right (so just seat the body in the seat properly then put the arms on. He will still come off after that).
