    I have a Scorn figure from the new AoE film (pretty cool figure, by the way) and I'm custom painting him.

    I have two questions involving his joints.

    He's ball joints for the hips, and I believe they're called swivel joints for the arms. Should I sand them down a bit so paint won't rub off after I'm finishes panting the parts?

    Any help counts!

    If you paint any of the joints, the paint will just rub off as soon as you reassemble the figure. Mostly if you're using acrilic paints.
    Best to either recast the joint parts in the needed color or leave them be.
