Note to self - NEVER buy a game which I have to assemble to miniatures. This is probably the worst "craft" I have ever attempted. What a mess...

Thank you for the insightful comment.

Please refer to one of the many existing threads about the problems of miniature assembly:
Anyone else having trouble assembling the figures?

Highly dissapointing quality of the miniatures

Dang, Klutz - no need to be freakin' rude. Maybe the guy hadn't seen the threads. I know it's happened to me before, as have rude comments by random members when I just hadn't seen any prior threads.

Just ease off a little.

@Matthew Holley - (stjase) - Yes, I would assemble them for free. I enjoy Mini Building and these are no problem. All I want is to not pay to ship them to me or back to him....

Ok, I'll admit I might've been a little harsh.

In my defense, had he given us even the slightest inkling of being here to get help and suggestions to help him assemble his miniatures, I would have been a lot more polite and offered up what help I could provide.

He didn't take the time to even explain what he was having trouble with... Heck, he couldn't even be bothered to write out "assembly".

That's more understandable - I reckon the cowpoke just needed to vent.
Besides, you have better things to do - start finishing up all that brilliant SoBS content!

there is no way SoBS is worse than super dungeon explore. 7 pieces for a half inch tall figure? really? BTW if you are looking for more base game figures I am willing to part with my copy.

Wow - thank you for the kind offer. That is truly amazing that you'd offer your service like that.

Sorry I was so vague in my initial post. I was just venting because I feel I ruined several minis. My issue with them was aligning everything up so there were no gaps in the seems. As time went on I did get better at gluing them but it took me 6 hours to complete both core sets. I'm glad it's over so I can actually start playing this tonight

It took me a bit to put mine together, but after Deadzone and Dreadball it was no big deal, (and unfortunately there are gaps due to the manufacture of the minis) but I must say that once you start playing those dissappear into the story going on.

I posted this on clipping, trimming, gluing and assembling the stranglers. Perhaps it will help.
