Does anyone here ever attach things to DF, like shields on the walls or other decor? If so, do you have any advice for what I should use that would work but wouldn't be permanent or damage the wall?

In other words, I'd like to stick on some decor, but I'd like to be able to use the pieces without the decor later.

Me, I'd be too scared to try something that actually sticks to the wall. But I have thought about something a little more cheesy --

take a paperclip and unbend it, then reshape it to form a bracket that can hang over the top of the wall. Then glue whatever you want to the clip, and you can simply snap it in place, and remove it at will. It's gonna work better for things like shields than things like swords, but if you really were dedicated, you could probably make it work for most things. Paint up the clip a good yellowish brownish shade of grey so it fades into the wall, and it's a pretty decent makeshift solution.

Hey L,
Stick tac.
The blue stuff used to put up posters at schools and business etc. This stuff is FABULOUS!!!
I just posted some pictures (re: Deploy Destroy) and instead of glueing the Armorcast "cabin" (in the first pic) I used Stick Tac to put it together. This makes it easier for storage and transport. Even if you take off the roof (which is removable) you can not see the stuff. It works perfectly for what you would like to do. Oh, and it's cheap!

One of our forum fanatics used rare earth magnets to attach shields and such to wall sections. Warhammer folks often use them for weapon swaps on 40K dreadnauts and big tyranid creatures. I've used them myself to good effect.

what works very well in our dungeon is putty even for the heavier stuff like mirrors (a real one form a dollhouse supplier). not the putty you normally use to fill gaps or make models - in art/hobby stores you can get putty that does not dry out or leaves colour remains on the surface.

I use the poster paste from 3m. Used to hang posters up. It comes off very easy.
