Picked up some Necropunks and Copycat Killer from Malifaux today on a whim. I have decided to focus on painting now, than collecting. I have a lead mountain to enjoy.
The necropunks are typical of most modern minis- thin and fiddly to assemble. Not the robust single part things of my teens that could survive a good game. A large portion of my collection of non-vintage figures are unpainted for this reason... fiddly ass assembly!
So next time I can, I must grab some really fine drill bits. My current ones are paperclip thickness. Not good when drilling limbs as thin as paperclips. Half the time I may as well just rebuild the limbs with greenstuff on wire- easier and more robust for gaming!
What confuses me is why many of these figures are not reposed slightly to allow for minimal part casting. One necropunk had four limbs to pin on- uhg. Not fun.
But I stuck at it and managed to get all three assembled and based (30mm bevel bases not the lipped ones- makes for easier handling). Yay me. This is the sole reason I do not buy infinty models. Way too thin and fragile.
That reminds me... I was promised an intro game by mainly medieval!
So anyone have their multipart horror stories?
