Hi to everybody

i'm a new Dust fan from Italy. Just bought my first box set, and i want to paint miniatures, but, what with head and torso twisting? Do you glue in position the miniatures? with plastic glue i think.

Thanks in advance

Not plastic cement as the models are not hard plastic, use superglue.

I dont glue them because when I finish coat then with gloss and flat that keeps them in place well enough. To paint the figures easier I split them in half before final finish.

I used superglue both for the torso and head parts (SuperAttack Flex Gel is great, as it forms a solid bond but remains apt to minor tweaks after applying it).
