The great thing about the adult hobby is having some kind of budget to work with. Enjoy your crafting.

Re: Heroes taking on a Vampire

I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Is there a specific type of glue/adhesive to use with pewter?
I've got my Count Strahd mini that I'm using for my vampire adventure. And comes with his right arm unattached. For painting purposes since it lays folded across his chest. There's a small indent at the elbow where it's obvious from common sense and the picture that's where the other half of his arm goes.
But I can't get it to stick. I've got my fingers glued to the mini more successfully than the actual arm.
Any help would be great.

I can sympathise with you. While I avoid pewter minis like the plague, I do have a ton of pewter/lead starship minis. For whatever damn reason there are some that will just not easily stick together with superglue, while another will go right together. There doesn't seem to be any correlation as to what does what.

I use plain old quick setting superglue. Cyanoacrylate , I believe. If youve gotten your mini all goofy with clusters of glue, take any get it off with a bit of nail polish remover and a soft toothbrush. Let dry completely and try again, get it up to body temp (squeeze it tight in your hand for a few seconds). Dip just a small drop of glue on a toothpick and place it on the larger body section. If the hand is super small use tweezers to get a good grip and try placing it again. If it still doesn't want to set after 30 seconds or so try again and see if you can "clamp" it in position with the tweezers or your thumb. If it sets after 5 minutes you can carefully rub some polish remover around your thumb to weaken that bond just enough to pull free without getting it into the joint.

Good luck!

...and lick or otherwise moisten the smaller part. The water accelerates the bonding process.
Optional: If both parts are thick enough we need to talk about pinning or greenstuffing.

Good Point.

I don't paint my minis, so I don't do this. When I moisten the piece the glue tends to dry a powdery white color (probably I used too much moisture), which stands out on an otherwise unpainted mini.

But, if you're painting then that would help quite a bit too.

That's why I cover the whole mini in glue and spit. It's powdery white all over.

Got it fixed.
It came off once or twice.
But i tried again and the adhesive seems to be holding quite nicely now.
