oookay... this will be my third time trying with green stuff and i don't think it likes me very much ^^;; my HT just doesn't want to stay together... i don't have the money to get the glue for metal and the glue i have is only good for plastic models... any tips i'll take ^_^ plzzzzzz i want a nice looking HT

Green stuff works well in combination with Zap Gel for the head and bioweapons for the tyrant. I have never not used a super glue on the body sections for it. They seem just too heavy. How can you not afford 1.69 for a small tube of Zap Gel, or even some elmer's super glue from the grocery store?
You'll want to pin the HT as well as green stuffing and glueing. Remember that superglue sticks everything together except citadel metal. Just a thin drill bit and a piece of copper earth wire will do the trick just fine.
Maybe thats because people dont wash it or something, i myself use apoxy resin.
One important point: greenstuff is not glue, you cannot assemble a model with just greenstuff. Well, not unless you have some amazing cradle rigged up to support each part for the five or so hours needed for the greenstuff to be hard enough...
I just use a cheap own brand superglue from the local store. The label says it bonds skin and eyes in seconds, but it works ok on Nids too. Just get a very very thin layer in the joint and then hold it for about five minutes.
If it's not working for you, you either have too much glue or aren't holding it still enough. Try less glue (you need a suprisingly small amount), and holding it in one hand only is more stable than two.
Then I go back and work greenstuff into each join to give a nice finish and support it all a little once it is dry.
I dropped my wingged tyrant about two feet onto flagstones this week (Warhammer World, Nottingham) and it just bounced, so I'm fairly confident in the above :rolleyes:
