Q: Repairing DF products 10 Years, 3 Months ago  
Hey all,

I just received a big pile of MM stuff from an auction on EBay. Good news is I got a deal, bad news is that some of the pieces were damaged in shipping. (looks like a truck ran over the box!)

What kind of glue is best for this stuff? I know SuperGlue has a tendancy to discolor paint, etc. Any other suggestions that would offer a good strong bond? 5-minute epoxy perhaps? I'd rather not have to do any touch-up work if I can avoid it!

Any suggestions appreciated.

I have always just used plain old elmers glue. I won't affect the paint, and it bonds well. The polyresin is porous and Elmer's work well with it.

DF stuff glues together so well that you won't see the seam!

I was going to say Elmers too! But I thought there was a "fancy" way.

I have only had a few dings and chips from my hard working sets.

I just dab a little paint, most times I don't even bother and just use a handy black pen. You would be hard pressed to find these repairs.

:D

I like Duro Super Glue. Dries almost instantly. and you don't need much so there's not much discoloration

Elmers, I don't think I have bought that since grade school. Hmm, like 38 years ago?

Speaking of such, I have noticed that my minatures have become somewhat bent. I am hesitant to try and bend them straight. Any ideas?

Pewter? Or Plastic? Pewter You Can Usually Get away with Bending if You are Gentle and the Metal is Not Cold... May still have to repaint though... I Have Heard People Mention (I think it was MrMorden in an Earlier Post), that the New Plastics like D&D Figs can be Dipped in Warm Water and Then Straightened... Hard Plastic is Trickier I Think because it is so Brittle, But I guess the Magic Formula seems to be Heat?

I don't own any of the resin Dwarven Forge figures, but I do own several resin pieces from Forgeworld (Armorcast). Therefore, this may not be applicable for you as they may use different sorts of resin, so be cautious with the advice.

Use a hairdryer and carefully heat the resin slightly. Once warm, you should be able to bend the resin back into shape -- if it resists, it's not warm enough, but if it's too hot to touch, it's too warm. Just be very careful if you try this.

This is a solution used for Forgeworld pieces that had been left in a hot car too long and deformed; the fact that your resin figures are bent and need to be repositioned could mean they suffered a similar fate.
