Hey all. My first post here.
I've been making models and painting miniatures for quite a while. I recently found this site and the Neca turtle figures.
Now I ordered one online and the quality was very good. Bellow are two pictures. One of it how it arrived, and the other with just a bit of extra paint work.
So I ordered a whole set from the same seller. They arrived in terrible condition. Sticky paint work. A tail missing. The wrong heads! The list goes on and on.
So I have decided I will re paint them in the black and white theme seen on the Neca set. I have a few questions.
I can't seem to remove the pivot pins. I have tried heating them up but they still don't move. Has anyone got any advice on how to remove them for these specific figures?
Is there a way to stiffen the joints a bit? These guys have very loose legs.
What would be the best paint to use? I was thinking Citadel primer followed by Citadel white. Then some kind of clear coat.
Is it possible to keep the articulation without the paint wearing off?
I have been through the tutorials on here and they have been very helpful. If anyone can offer any specific advice I would be very grateful.
