I've not needed any glue yet myself. Only used wood glue when putting together Broken Tokens after staining them. Many minis don't need glue or assembly. Get Kingdom Death Monster and you will spend half of your lifetime  putting those together, or so it seems from reading posts. ? I don't own the game myself.

There are 371 individual figures in my KDM pledge, to be delivered between now and 2020.  So far I have received about 95 of them and assembled and painted about 20 or 25, and that might be optimistic.

KDM is different because most of the models are unique, and the bosses are physically larger (the Phoenix has a 8-10 inch wingspan).  It's very hard to set up an assembly line and bang them out.  I also got pulled into fixing mold lines and filling gaps, which is not something I set out to do originally.  That takes a lot of time for me, because I'm more inclined to work on a single model for 5-10 minutes and then walk away for long stretches while a single seam settles and dries.

I want to try Kdm so bad.  I’ll likely never own it given the price of entry.  Maybe someday if I get good at miniature painting I’ll save up for it

I’m assuming that this is the quality of work I should expect after trying it out for the first time yes?

Blicks had some pearl essence paints.  You might want to get some of that and experiment with it.

Did someone say cookies? Hmm, maybe I’ll have to give this painting thing a try one of these days too...

When it comes to cookies....I go classic chocolate chip.  I do make a mean butterscotch cookie though.

The two best cookie combos is a pot of coffee and snickerdoodles and oatmeal butterscotch.

First player token? Not for you. Only for everyone else playing. You just have this guy face the rest of the table when you're first player instead.

Damn straight.  Only downer is it will take me years to paint it like this.  Assuming I even get close to this level.

Enjoy your kitties while you can.  You hit a certain point, and when you lose them, you realize you only want another companion about 10% of the time.

My supervisor cat loves to gently grab minis and run off with them. He has yet to damage any (he prefers Bones or my wizkids prepainted plastic ones).

I got my rise of moloch pledge in the mail today.  When I get to at least a reasonable painting level I will absolutely be jacked about painting them.  Such fun looking minis.

this is assuming of course that I’m meant to paint.  

@Zoxe fun fact there is even a kdm crossover mini.  Not sure how much of a completist you are :)
