I bought the core game last evening and had a little trouble getting the AT-ST model together, particularly the moveable cannon underneath the cockpit. Both barrels now show stress where they connect to the rest of that part. For the time being, I will be storing the mini in the box it came in. However, I am concerned that one or both barrels might break off and was wondering if anyone has had that problem and/or a way to ensure this does not happen. Thanks.

When assembling, put the pieces in hot water just long enough to soften them and they will easily fit together. This is a very common concern and was the subject of many threads when the game released.

Depending on whether you put the turret in upside down or not you can pivot it all the way under the cockpit during storage to help protect it. I discovered this by mistake when I realized I put mine in upside down and decided to leave it like that.

My kids have broken many X-Wing, Imperial Assault, and Epic Duels minis, including both barrels on the AT-ST. Krazy Glue (specifically that brand) works wonders. (Just don't get it on your fingers!)
