Hey i just bought 2 boxes of WOC Choosen and i have a problem with attaching heads to miniatures! I cleaned the figures from all the surplus metal bits im using a correct glue (since i glued other metal miniatures with it) and those demn heads dosn't want to stick to the torso!!!!

Any one have a clue what im doing wrong????

Did you try to clean both parts with some soap to remove the fat from them?

When in doubt, pinning is always good.

Get a small handheld drill, drill a little hole in the two pieces, fit a little metal piece (Paperclips work well) then glue the ends together again, holds together very well usually.

You might have to try to turn the head in a different direction or interchange them. The chosen kit looks impressive but the horns of some helmets are a bit too low and stop the head to reach the bottom of the socket. Try a blob of greenstuff in the socket if you cant or dont want to repose the heads. Of course pinning works as well but is a more work.

I had problems with mine too. Try cutting off small chips off metal off the neck to increase the surface area the glue can adhere to and then leave them to set overnight. That seemed to work for me (and I had 15 ;)).

A little bit of greenstuff on one of the parts you want to glue together is another method I am using when I am too lazy to pin.

That is what I usually do as well - and it works too! :cool:

to tempt you with the 'greenstuff' chosen, heres a pic of my finished unit, to show how discreet the greenstuff is :p its really simple to do:
1. mix green stuff, about half a cm from each colour for 10 guys (ish)
2. leave it to cure a bit for about a minute
3. make a small ball for each
4. apply super glue to the bottom of the head and the neck of the body
5. place green stuff into the neck
6. push head in - voila
