This is EXACTLY what I do. Trying to paint the badges on the chest is hard enough. Having something in the way makes it nigh impossible.

Personally i give everything a blast of primer while on the sprue ,remove parts from sprue,clean mold lines off and blast or touch up primer, part assemble and paint,final fix assemble and touch up anything and work on highlights and weathering etc and get some varnish on it.
Problem most people have is they want to game with the model before they get chance to paint it so they end up assembling it in grey form and then realize that certain parts are impossible to paint, the number of times i have seen eldar tanks with painted windows because they cant paint the pilot or have primed the window is a joke.

I do the logical assemblies first. I learned that the hard way. Theres just some stuff the primer can't quite get, and if you sit there and baste it in primer to get it you risk applying too much to the surrounding areas of the model.

What I do is I clear up all the falsh lines and such on the sprue, then stick the chest together guns together etc, basically anything which doesn't obscure it, but I always keep it attached to the spru. For example, I would cut off the fron part of a chest and stick it to the back part which is still attached to the sprue

Whats that I hear you say? It won't cover properly when you spary? Ah well around every bit which is attached to the sprue i cut any excess sprue which might obscure the spray stream, along with every point that its attached par one so it stay on and its easier to spray and paint as ur fingers don't get in the way

When choosing bits to cut off and the one to leave one, I normally choose a bit which ould be easier to repaint such as an area of flat coulour, so when it comes to building you just cut it off and clean up.

Probably a bit confusing but hey.

Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination

MidnightSun: There will be, when enough people do it. Y'know when the Eldar were all engaging in their hedonism and Slaanesh ripped open the Eye of Terror with his creation? Slaanesh will have NOTHING on the God of Procrastination, and his vile minions will carve the galaxy asunder in a thousand year reign of blood.... Tomorrow
