Superglue (cyanoacrylate) is recommended.

If you can get hold of it use Gorilla Super Glue as it's fantastic.

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

I had good success with another recommendation around here, Loctite brand "ultra" "gel" super glue. It's nice to have the viscous gel rather than a thin, runny glue.

This is a great recommendation! This is my preferred glue for the metal (or at least when GW were still making metal) miniatures for Warhammer 40,000 and Warhammer. This gel also can act as a sealant for very narrow gaps between pieces (larger gaps will need "green stuff" or something similar though).

Adding to the Loctite recommendation. Easy to use and apply. Whichever kind of glue you get make sure you have a bowl of warm water mixed with vinegar and dish soap nearby. I stuck my fingers a few times together or sometimes to the model when assembling these. Be careful! =)

I used the blue Loctite Super Glue Gel Control, which was slightly cheaper than the "Ultra" which worked great. Though i'm not really sure what the differences between the two are.

Whatever you do, don't use a non-Gel super glue, that's just asking for trouble.

Agreed! Using superglue that is too thin - can create this problem:

We found that super glue did not bond well with the hard plastic the (at least 1st edition) miniatures were cast with. We ended up going to Hobbytown and getting glue specially for hard plastic models and it has worked out beatuifully

I used the loctite gel on all my SDE minis and they are holding up just fine. I use loctite on all of my minis and its always performed wonderfully.

Throwing in my vote for Loctite too.

Did wanna add that tho the gels are awesome like everyone mentioned, if you're on a budget the cheaper ones work too (but just need a little more care/work). I ran out near the end and was using some leftover non gel tube I had around. Was a lot of "had to hold the pieces together while watching tv while it dried" but it still worked fine.

Just wanted to chime in that you don't need super expensive adhesive or anything fancy to get them assembled.

Very true! The gel just makes things a bit easier is all. Another thing I have noticed about Loctite is it doesn't dry up in a few days like an opened container of the original superglue brand. It always seems like I only get one use out of those others and my Loctite can sit on a shelf for weeks and still use it.

Have to put another shout out for Gorilla as Loctite is bullying it! It is a little bit more expensive and it's a liquid not a gel (but it is pretty thick) but it is exceptional. It dries in no time at all (like 10-15 seconds usually) and the bond is crazy. I snapped the arms back off my Iron Scales for ease of painting and it left the plug in the hole because the bond was so strong, I had to actually snap the arm itself! And I've painted them and glued them back on and the bond is still very strong. I actually came across it as I was searching for good glue for putting SDE together as I'd not worked with this type of plastic before and I'll never go back to anything else!

Loctite is good but GORILLA better.
But props for Loctite as glue container a bit better than the Gorilla to apply to models
