    No way! Fuck!

    I could've sworn I double checked all these assholes twice!

    Was the custom pad in there at least? The hand/weapon? Please tell me it was just the shoulder-wrist arm section!

    Double damnit.

    I got legs, chest, head, hammer arm, 2 shoulder pads, backpack, servo arm and heavy bolter arm, so looks to be just that one arm missing. It was basically the least important part so I think I can find a substitute. I might be able to cobble something together from necron parts even :P

  • TraceofToxinTraceofToxin King Nothing Registered User regular
    Haha, well damn. If you need anything let me know.

    Are you happy with the model so far?

    Mini in a Simple Green soak. I hope it holds together. And I went out and bought the GW brush on primer, so I can prime without worrying about the humidity. We will see how it works.

    Not much. It softens it a little, but as long as you're not using a wire brush, shouldn't notice it.

    Almost done. I'm by no means a great painter, but I'm even worse at taking pictures.

    Paints and my Vallejo surface primer are expected to arrive today. And just in time since today is all wet and spray prime wouldn't work so hot anyway.
    And then the painting shall commence! There might even be a trip to a craft store tomorrow to get all manner of fun stuff.

    So I managed to get a lull in the weather and got him primed. So progress is being made.

    And I was really looking forward to getting started tonight and tomorrow.

    Thanks. I got a bunch of sprues from the Empire Flagellants. The Promethean Cult is supposed to use hammers and anvils as holy symbols. I should have him in the mail Monday or Tuesday.

    2100 bellerive dr, apt 69, Richland WA 99352?

    The 69 part wasn't just a joke.

    But if it was, it'd be a pretty funny joke.

    I got the shoulder pad already. What else were you going to send?

    I opened my guy. Then I glued a shoudler pad on, and primed him. I have to touch up the prime tonight when I get off work.

    Progress?

  • Custom SpecialCustom Special Registered User regular
    Woo! Finally able to get started.
    Genestealer primed, Terminator half assembled. Gluing this halberd together is going to be a chore...
    Does super glue go bad? I've got some really old stuff that I'm using, and I'm wondering if I need to just grab a new tube of plastic glue to help this go a little smoother.

    Super glue will solidify, but it won't go bad, per se.

    Ok, wasn't sure if just getting old and losing some effectiveness was a thing.
    But I did know about solidification. Had half a bottle of Zap in my old car for so long that it turned solid. Cut it out of the bottle, so I had a chunk that was the exact shape of inside of the bottle. It was actually kind of cool.

    Tonight, I shall make with the priming of the termie. I think my painting will be slow going, though. Last week was a good free weekend but I didn't have my primer. Now I'm busy all Saturday and most of Sunday this and next week. Although I may be able to make some progress July 4/5.

    I disagree. After about a year, my super glue* will become unusable. It's still the same consistency as when I first bought it, but it just won't actually dry and hold together properly.

    If your glue is not setting properly, then I suggest getting some new stuff.


    * I usually buy GW stuff, so it may be different with other brands. I'm just recently bought a P3 bottle which seems to be the same but I won't know if it 'goes bad' for a while yet.

  • SJSJ Registered User regular
    Tragically, the P3 glue is exactly the same thing as the GF9 glue, but costs a USD more. Personally I use one of three glues that have never failed me: Zap-a-Gap, Bob Smith Industries, and GF9.

  • Custom SpecialCustom Special Registered User regular
    Thanks guys. I might look into getting a new bottle then.
    I've got a bottle of Citadel and can't remember when I bought it, but it is quite possibly 5 or more years old, which is why I was kind of iffy about it.
    So far the pieces that I put together are sticking well enough. I'll have to put some pressure on the waist and shoulder joints that I've glued so far and see if it pops easy or if it holds still.

    Loctite super glue gel has never failed me. I was using a bottle that I put into strorage before I deployed and what was left worked fine.

    I'm a fan of Gorilla super glue. Office Depot carries it.

  • SJSJ Registered User regular
    Seriously though there is no better glue on the market than the generic label wearing Bob Smith Industries stuff. You probably didn't even know what it was because it looks so generic:

    Fuku8.jpg

    Seriously use this glue. It's at your local Hobby Town for sure, and I dunno where else you might find it.

  • ChrysisChrysis Registered User regular
    I use dollar store (well, 100 yen shop) superglue that comes in tiny tubes. Then, when a tube I've been using clogs up or dries up it doesn't matter because I got three of them for 100 yen.

    Hey, that's my game store's glue! Oooh those crafty sons of bitches. (I kid. I know it's just generic shit that any store can put their label on.)

    makosig.jpg
  • SJSJ Registered User regular
    It's intentionally generic, yes. But it isn't shit. It's seriously awesome glue. Go buy their glue.

    I had an airplane mechanic friend turn me onto this. He would use it to fix planes for Northwest then turn around and use it on his Warhammer and Confrontation figs. Reminds me I need to get another tube of this stuff.

    Also, the Bob Smith stuff is tits. I will make a trip to Hobbytown just to pick some up if I'm low - it's my usual go to superglue.

    I've been super productive today and made extremely good progress on my Deathwatch man. Just been in the zone for the last hour and a half and solidly painted this dude. Hopefully I can get in the same zone tomorrow, if so I could probably have him done.
