Hello there, just a quick question for experienced hobbyists. Picked up the Introductory Box Set for Battletech after last playing Second Edition back in '93.

Generally very happy with the updated look and components, however the gun arms of the Awesome had fallen off at the joint after several plays. Can anyone help as to what kind of glue is best to put them together again? (not really interested to get metal minis, am happy with a casual involvement with the game )

I had no problems with normal superglue, just use a little and use a glue accelerator like zip kicker.

I had the same problem, 8 of my figures from the new intro set was broken on arrival. I got all 8 replaced free of charge but not wanting to waste anything, I went ahead and fixed the figures I owned! Now I have 8 free plastic figure.

Zap-A-Gap CA+ is my "go to" glue for plastics. It even works if you forget to wash/wipe the oily mold release agent off the mini first.
