Games Workshop Treebeard Question...

Games Workshop Treebeard Question... Can't Post

Hello everyone,

I have a question for anybody who has assembled and painted Games Workshop's Treebeard set. It can be found here:


My question relates to Pippin and Merry. Is it easier to:

A) Attach Pippin and Merry to Treebeard and THEN paint them


B) Paint Pippin and Merry then glue them to treebeard.

I ask because I have not yet painted a model of this scale and difficulty yet. It sounds like it might be easier to paint Pippin and Merry and then glue them to Treebeard, but that might also add a degree of difficulty by requiring me to paint Pippin and Merry loose. By loose I mean unattached to any base; normally I glue games workshop figures into a base then paint them, but seeing as this Pippin and Merry do not come with a base I might have to grip them by their legs or some other part of the figure which sounds difficult.

If anybody can help me or offer any other advice about this model that would be much appreciated.

Thank you,
