Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey all, I'm sure this is the wrong spot to post this in, but its where i feel most comfortable asking questions and it is about my newly aquired orks!
I just today purchased the AoBR box set, and i already have the starter set for orks which is assembled and half painted (just spray painted i'm a little confused on how to go about painting them but i'll just have to look in the painting section and get some tips!)
The question is, is there any type of material i can use so that i can easily change out the arms (weapons) for the boyz? I started out with my alread assembled models as slugga boyz, but quickly decided to change them to shoota boyz and man oh man was it a pain in the butt to get those arms off after they were super glued and dryed out! I've been hearing stuff about some green goo? I'm not entirely sure what it is, and was just wondering what you guys could suggest since i'm not sure how i want my army to go until i play a few more games
Thanks a bunch guys and sorry if this is the wrong section or anything
I'm afriad there's no easy way of doing this besides drilling and magnetising every single arm on your boyz- a long and tedious process. The green goo you've been hearing about is called green stuff and is in fact used for modelling with. For example, if I wanted to put a fur collar on a cpae I'd put a little greenstuff on the colar and sculpt it so that it looks like fur. This is not the only application for greenstuuf, but it is suffice to say for now that it won't do the job you want it to.

In all honesty, as an ork player, you won't really need to swap in and out arms for the smaller models, like boyz, because you will eventually have upwards of 60 shootas and 60 sluggas, that's just the way it ends up. The process of magnetizing the arms is much more practical for large creatures, like a tyranid carnifex.
Applaud, my friend, the Comedy is finished.
