    Are you sure what kind of glue it is? because if it's plastic glue then I am sorry as far as I know there is nothing that can be done

    Does anyone know of a way to remove GW glue? I purchased a used unpainted monolith and the previous owner glued the portal/symbol backwards and I would like to remove those pieces and re-attach them correctly.

    Put the model into the freezer for about a day. The cold does magical things to SUPERglue. You can easily remove SUPERglued items in this fashion.

    If it was assembled with PLASTIC glue, start prying and praying.

    It doesn't look like it's melted the plastic, I was able to chip some of it off. There is just a lot of it.

    If I freeze the entire model will the cold weaken and ruin the rest of the model? Because it's really only the one area that I would like to change.

    If you freeze it, it then suffers from the "brittle armor" effect and any rending roll for a weapon S4 and up will cause a glancing hit on the damage table regardless of armor value since the armor is so brittle.

    Freeze it, then take the stuff out of the freezer and let it return to room temperature. That way the plastic won't be brittle when you start wrenching it around trying to break the bond on the glue.

    So my garage is a disaster area. Seriously it is full of crap that I need to unbox, throw away, etc. The last time I cleaned out a section of it was to put up a spray box so I could prime my models. It's sad but I need to bribe myself to do house work.

    Anyway, I'm going to get my garage in order so I can build my own gaming table. I've seen tutorials on how to build a lava table, so I think that is what I'm going to try for. Now I just need to get to cleaning...

    The plastic shouldn't be brittle after it warms back up. I'd never heard the thing with the glue in the freezer.

    Look, if you want to be sure, get a saw. Like I'm always telling my mother, dont pry. Find a jeweler's saw or one of the saw attachments for an exacto knife. If you're up against straight joints, versus curvy bits, you should be okay. Glue can be stronger than plastic sometimes, but I'm pretty sure steel wins.

    Get a few pieces of Sprue. Glue a few pieces of Sprue together with SUPERglue. If you would like a comparison, try some PLASTIC glue too. Place some into the Freezer for a day or so and then attempt to remove the parts. Try the same with the pieces of glued Sprue which was not placed into the deep freeze. Woah, what a difference!

    Conventions too, oft times have an armies for sale or move your goods area going.That's what I'd recommend doing if you were trying to move a large, painted lot. People get to see stuff in person, and that's the kind of setting where you might catch someone with money, who decides to jump into an army whole hog.

    So bought some Vanguard Vets yesterday. I paid big bucks for Finecast at retail, but it was at the only FLGS in town, so it just felt right :).

    I was almost hoping one guy would be missing a leg or something so I could try out the fabled customer service, but everything looked great. I really like the weight of metal (I know, I know), but these poses are really better in resin.

    It's been a long time since I've had new models, so this is really fun. I want to order magnets and backpacks so all my assault doodz can have the option of zooming around.

    Good god. It took me all night but I got the piece off that I needed. Turns out it was plastic glue.

    I have no idea what the previous owner was doing with this model. The steps were in backwards and upside down and there was a quarter glued to the inside...I am going to need a lot of greenstuff to tidy this mess up.

    So I was in the city yesterday and discovered the GW I go to was closed down. Turns out they had relocated downstairs to a much better location. Roughly the same floor space, but way better shelving and storage and, most of all, lighting. The first place felt like a cave sometimes and I would never paint there because it was too dim. But now it's bright as day in there, very cool.

    Chatted to one of the employees who recognised me and checked out the new 'nid kits. Will have to drop by there sometime with my guys and play a game/show off my terverigon conversion.

    Sorry to hear it was Plastic Glue. But good news is you got $0.25 of your purchase price back!

  • Ken OKen O Registered User regular
    ToT, yes. I'd read/watch them. I can learn things from unpainted minis just as well as I could from painted ones.

    How does everyone here handle painting their tank turrents, etc? On my troops I fully assemble them and then paint there. Looking at all my Land Raider pieces it would seem it would be better to paint the weapons and then asseble them.

    First of all, Pet peeve time Ken: TURRET

    TURRET

    Secondly, I usually leave mine unglued , but in the case of this stormraven i'm painting, the turret is completely off the model and I'm painting it separately.

    Spoiler:

    Back in the days of the Third Battle of Armageddon my LFGS (Sci-Fi City Orlando) had several boards that were very Ork inspired and one of them was a dock that had an Ork submersible crashed into it. This reminds me so much of that board.

    Johnny,

    Your LGS is sci fi city? I went there once on a pit stop during a business trip, that place is fucking fantastic.

    Also, I'm in Tampa area with Nax and about 2 other gamers. We really should have a florida get-together.

    Yep, I'm a Sci-Fi City guy. I'm nowhere near as competitive as some of the folks here. My thing is modeling.

    I'm totally up for a Fl get-together. I'll bring my Green Tide.

    And Ken O, I too need to get settled with baby stuff. My wife is ready to pop; could be any day now. And it's our first one.

    Yeah plus I only paid $40 for the model to begin with. I wanted a monolith but couldn't justify the $80 GW was asking for it. Oh well it will be a learning experience for me with greenstuff.

    I mean, it could probably use a coat or two of gloss varnish, but I'd totally accept that as "dark, storm-toss'd seas" or suchlike.

    Whether it's thematically appropriate for comic relief fungus-gorillas or not, that's a whole other debate really.
