I've spent way too much on these minis as it is.
I'm not a collector.
I'm not a miniature hobbyist.
I'm just a guy that wanted to play HeroQuest with his friends.
And I'm frustrated.
Gonna try some stronger glue.
And if that doesn't work, the pewter Morcar is up for grabs for anyone who wants it.



That mini isn’t even needed or necessary to play Hero Quest at all.
So be just a guy and play away!!!

I've had great success filling gaps with Gorilla brand super-glue. But a good hobby shop should have both thin and thick super glues.

And be cautious using paperclips for pinning, depending on what they're made out of they might either be soft or stainless steel, which will RUIN your clippers. Speaking from experience here. I bought brass rod so I could be assured it wouldn't do so.

Use a dusting of baking soda on one part (small, light dusting) it will accelerate the cure of the superglue :)

Does anyone want these goddamn minis!?

And i STILL haven't succeeded in getting the pieces fixed.

In the meantime, did you try to pin it or did you go ahead and not heed our council at all?

I did. I drove an hour and a half to my friends house. Who does has the stuff i need because he does a lot of table top gaming.
And i was going over there for a weekend D&D session already.
No luck. The hands fell off again.

Maybe one of you will have better luck.

PS.. i don't appreciate the condescending nature of your inquiry.
