I haven't painted any miniatures or played any table top games in about 20 years so I just wanted to ask a bit of advice on assembling minis.

I've just bought some Hoplites and an Ironhide Brute to get me started and wondered what glue everyone uses to fix arms and shields etc. on and also whether pinning is necessary for arms?

So far there has not been any instance of pinning for me, and I use Army Painter Instant Glue or P3 Super Glue most of the times. The parts fit nearly seamlessly, and usually all I do is just holding the glued parts together for say 5-8 seconds.

Some megalith model have some pre-fixed pins... They work really good...
I always use Loctite Superglue!

Thanks all, I just picked up some Loctite Gel anyway while I was in the hardware store. I'm glad pinning doesn't seem to necessary though... (one step at a time) Smile The old Citadel miniatures I used to buy as a teenager all tended to be one part casting but the Megalith poses are a lot more dynamic...

I use the cheapest super glue I can get at the hardware store. I prefer liquid to gel because it dries faster.

I only do pinning for models on special terrain bases.

Occasionally arms or shields come off during play, but I can live with that because pinning is a lot of work if you do it on a lot of models.

When a glued part comes off, it is very important to scrape off the old glue before re-gluing. Glue sticks very badly to old glue and never really holds well after that, and takes forever to dry.[/u]
