Default Contemptor Dread Assembly Query

Dearly beloved Heretics, I have a contemptor dread which has been gathering dust for 3 years because I have been afraid to to touch its beauty, I want to enter it as my next entry into the painting competition, and my question is does it need to be pinned or will super do the job well enough? All the bits seem to fit snug and well, and it will be a role specific unit so the weapons will be fixed, so no magnet shinanigans. Your advice as always is appreciated, and thanks in advance, Oldman

I assume that you're referring to the FW ones?

I just used super glue and it holds up pretty well.

Mine is the Relic body, Plasma Cannon, Claw Arm, and the missile rack on the top.

If you haven't washed the resin before assembly then you might run into some issues (I just use dish soap, warm/hot water, and a spare tooth brush) because of the release agent on the resin.

magnetise the arms, under the shoulder, so you can swap out weapons as you feel.
