I found some discussion on this topic in an older post but I waned to see what people have found to be the best glue for these minis. I have not assembled minis before and there are no flgs that have mini stuff besides some paint, so I am looking for a store solution.

Hi, I use crazy glue. It's good for plastic and metal. Others might suggest others, but I really never had a problem with it. You just have to hold it for a couple of seconds and the trick is not getting your fingers stuck. Hope this helps.

James, thanks for the reply! Do you recommend a certain kind of crazy glue?

I use Krazy glue and I also have some scotch super glue which works also. I'm pretty sure I used both when I put my deadzone minis together. They worked well with both the metal and plastic. Hope that helps.

I like Gorilla Glue. The gel worked really well. Found it at Home Depot.

All my DreadBall & Deadzone stuff is held together with Loctite gel. Highly recommended.

Both Loctite or Gorilla Glue are perfectly fine, just be sure that for Mantic "restic" models you get the "Gel" type. I used regular Gorilla and Loctite for a few minis at first, and switched to gel after hearing it was a bit better and the drying time was vastly superior using the gel superglues. I don't have scotch super glue, I tried krazy glue too and it was fine, but the gels (especially the Gorilla Glue Gel) seemed to bond almost instantly with most of the deadzone models.

Nooooo!!! Poly Cement melts the plastic together so it would be the most permanent choice. Someday Mantic might pull their head out of their butt, and redesign the connectors to work the way they were advertised. If that happens it will be much easier to take apart scenery held together with super glue.

One of the players here used a hot glue gun on the scenery and got good results.
