I am the proud owner of the set of Titan miniatures that was once included in the Valley games edition of this classic. As with many of the lucky few who received these figures with their game, they came in a special box but, alas, broken in pieces.


(picture of how they should look by MikeBwithoutadot)

The type of plastic Valley games uses is a bit different than other miniatures I have (they also used this type for the ships in Container) and I am having some difficulty in glueing them.
Has any of you kind poeple have any suggestion of which type of glue to use to 'heal' the titans?

Your advice is very much appreciated!

My set came with one broken one. I used model glue from Testor's and it's held ever since.

Here's one page that will at least get you a picture; I don't know if this seller ships overseas:

Thanks! I will see if I can find this glue (or something similar) around here.

All these years later and you are still sad? Well, don't be. The miniatures were huge, cumbersome on the battle board, and of less than desirable quality. You're not missing much.

A better solution would be a set of 28mm Greek Hoplites (or comparable figures) simply painted in the appropriate color.
