Don't know about the rest of you but I am finding them annoying as fuck to model. Would it have honestly been that hard to make it a single piece?

For the SM terminator models (and by extension the other marine models, including the TWC, I'm assuming), the arm that holds the storm shield is in three parts: the pauldron, the arm from shoulder to wrist, and then the fist gripping the storm shield itself.

I usually just attached the wrist to the fist since there's really only one way to make them fit (unless you're converting).

its a little bit more complex on the thunderwolves, he does have a point, but given that the arms provided are dual purpose (or more) they are in more parts than you would normally get from gw but from a modelling point of view they are golden.

personally i would just use blutack to pose the model and then when happy with the positions i would crack out the super glue,then if anything goes wrong you can break the join and reposition.

yet another reason to not use silly plastic cement.

But it's so much fun pulling stringy melted plastic apart.

But yes, dry fitting and patience is probably the best way to get it just right.
