Joe Customizing Tips


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,


So I'm cashing in on some much needed vacation time, and between roadtrips with buddies and then the missus , I would like to try Joe customizing as a new hobby. I've never done any customizing, so I have a few questions and thought I'd start a thread if anyone else had their own questions on Joe customizing.


What type of paint do I need to buy?

- Would said paint be applicable for both hand painting and airbrushing?


What sort of putty (or whatnot) should I buy for sculpting parts or additions to characters?


Is there a particular way to do part swapping with newer figures that don't have the screws in their backs?



Is there a type of glue that words best or would any model/super glue work?



I am mainly looking to do customizing with POC figures. I am going to start small with putting officer rankings on a few Schock Troopers, and then I want to see if I can do some troop building with an extra POC Duke and Beachead I picked up.


I intend to go to a hobby shop near by that specializes in model trains and see if they can help me out. I want to avoid going to the Warhammer shop. That place is just.... lets just say it's not my thing.
