So I just got my Annyssa and I'm looking over the details and how the model goes together and I'm struck by the fact that there are a few areas with details which, once assembled would be almost impossible to get a brush into (eg areas behind her back once her cape is attached; or sections of the saddle once she and her quiver are fitted).
So I'm wondering who has chosen to paint before assembling, even if it was only part painting. From what I can see the biggest problem with paint before assembly would be both gluing parts (pins and shaving/preventing primer getting onto the joins) and also filling in any small gaps which might be present.
And if you chose not to - how did you get around those impossible to reach spots on the model? Just heavy shading and natural dark shadows?
