Miniature Games Construction Yard

In this blog I'll talk about various miniature games. Custom miniatures and minor conversions are my favorite pastime. I'll cover scenery making and painting too. The WIP you'll see here is all about Necromunda, Epic 40,000, Warhammer Fantasy 5th Edition, Warmaster and Warhammer 40K 3rd Edition.

I have been promoting TEC-7 glue quite often in my blog. I don't have shares in the company, but it's my holy grail for sticking metal miniatures together. (Works on plastics too.)

Here's how I work with the stuff. The product comes in tubes that require a "pistol" to apply the glue.

Take a piece of paper and apply a dot of TEC-7. Then use a small tool (or strip of cardboard) to smear the glue onto your miniature. The glue takes a long while to harden. Let it rest for hours. One advantage of TEC-7 is that it remains "rubbery". So the miniature can take a hit and the glue won't break.

TEC-7 is ideal if you have a batch of miniatures that need to be attached to the slottabases. Plastic glue or superglue does not allow rearranging a lot after you glued it to the base. With TEC-7 you can adjust the position of the miniature if it does not fit well into the regiment.

You might know this iconic miniature from Warhammer 4th edition: an Orc Shaman mounted on his Wyvern. This miniature is heavy metal. The wings are heavy and they break easily when glued with superglue. TEC-7 remains "rubbery" and can take a hit.
