Squig Hoppers assembly question.

Recommended Posts

Hello there!

I would like to know if there is a way to paint the squig and later on to glue the gobbo on it.

At first seen like you cant and i was wondering if there any way around it

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure you can't, the way they've sculpted it makes it so you need the squig rider glued on before you can put the squig's face on. So really the only way is to paint it separate is in sub-assemblies unfortunately,

The rider's arm is holding the top of the squig's head, so it's pretty hard to color match if you were to subassemble. It'd actually be easier to glue the arm on and keep the rest of the rider off.

If you slice off the notch on the piece of flesh the riders hold onto you can sub assemble easier.

I did it and just used plenty of plastic glue to fill the gap. Took a bit extra to dry but was easy. 

Fyi: my steps.

1: Painted inside tongue/ throat parts. Heavy gloss varnish for wet look. 

2: painted inside and out of just mouths and teeth. Heavy gloss varnish for wet look. 

3: glued mouth/throat part to body. 

4: glued face/ teeth over mouth/throat to boby while leaving grot and meat chunk off. 

5: masked off mouth/teeth with silly putty and primed rest of squig. 

Up to you to then place grot or shave down that notch and place after painting.
