    I posted a similar topic in the Battlefleet Gothic forum because I am having trouble with keeping some of my heavier metal ships together. I figured that not only would this topic get better circulation here, but also that models in other games have a similar problem.

    Nothing is worse than being in the middle of a game, about to claim that killing blow that will lead to victory, and your army centrepiece, a gargantuan piece of solid alloy, breaks in half just 'cause the glue decides to let go at that precise moment.

    So, how to avoid such a thing? I know pinning usually works quite well, but I was wondering if anyone has some alternatives (cause pinning is a pain in the ass), like Holy Super Glue, or something that has never failed them. Any suggestions or wacky techniques are welcome.

    Thanks in advance for any replys.

    Geer!

    The problem with most cyanoacrylate adhesives (superglue) is it won't bridge gaps well. There are some gels that are an exception to this rule but I find their use rather specialized. I use 2-part epoxy when gaps need to be filled.
    And over there we have the labyrinth guards.

    2-part epoxys are the best way to go anytime you're bonding large models, metal models etc. I've never once had a metal mini I've glued like this ever fall apart.

    I use super glue and green stuff to fill in the gaps ( the visable ones)
    If it ain't broke, break it

    you can use a little bit of green stuff (as has been said) or you can use a teensy bit of blu-tac. The super glue reacts with the water in the green stuff/blu tac and forms an epoxy type compound. its the same reason you should always lick a surface before you stick it with super glue (ALWAYS BEFORE THE GLUE - your tongue wont forgive you if you forget)
