  1. Hello, need some advice please Gents. I’ve spent the best part of two and a half hours tonight prepping (little needed doing as the figures are almost without flash), two units of Roman cavalry and trying to assemble them. So far I haven’t managed to complete one single figure. What glue works? I have used 3 different types (all I have), but they just will not stick. Tomorrow I’m going to try using glue and green stuff but if you know of a glue that works please let me know. Thanks. Mark G.

    1. Mark, I emailed you on our thoughts but for anyone else reading this try using the thin superglue and give it a bit longer than usual, it worked for us when we put the latest 2 part figures together.

  2. The new Indian elephants look great! Now we need Indian crews with bows/javelins riding them astride. Hardly anyone makes this crew and we need one!

  3. As far as I am concerned I had trouble to assemble them as well using superglue until I used Prince August metal glue that I recommand !
    btw I can’t wait for the reissue of the thureophoroi and thracians!

  4. I was looking for some 28mm models of the five different animal standards that were used in a Roman legion before the Romans used only the Eagle from the time of Marius. I telephoned Aventine and a few days later five excellent models arrived by post, including one they had made specially for me. Well done, guys, thank you.

  5. Hi Keith – love the beautiful new Thureophoroi figures and delivered really quickly.
    Having the same problem as others to assemble. Have washed the figures to get rid of any release agent, scraped out the socket for the head, ground the head into the socket to ensure good contact and used 4 different superglues – all thin – 2 from Locktite, 1 Diall and 1 Gorilla but with little success. I managed to assemble 6 last night with difficulty but 5 of them were loose today – have ordered different glues & will keep trying. All the glues work – at least on my fingers! Any further suggestions would be welcome. As a point, didn’t have any problem with the elephant & crew I received a month ago. Thanks Dave

      It is the pewter, use only a thin layer of glue to stick then add more once held, always use in a warm room, glue we use works okay, Everbuild industrial grade GP from Amazon, 3 bottles around £7.00

      https://www.amazon.co.uk/Everbuild-General-Purpose-Industrial-Superglue/dp/B06WW79DX5/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=everbuild+superglue&qid=1556986959&s=gateway&sr=8-6

      I have assembled the thureophoroi and the thracians using it and have relatively little issues apart from needing some patience, anything cool or cold just makes the glue dry far too slowly.

      Cheers
      Keith

  6. Thanks Keith
    Have tried a couple as you suggested – under a warm lamp – and it’s much better. Should manage the rest now. The quality of the pewter is excellent – the figures superb. Will try that glue you suggest. Cheers Dave
