When Fantasy Flight took over Battlelore, they quit assembling the figures to the stands. Has anyone found an effective way of assembling and gluing the figs to the stands? For those who do not know, the figures and stands are soft plastic with a slot type assembly, but I find it hard to assemble them so they stay together. Thank you!

If similar to polyethylene you might try a red- hot needle to "weld" the figure to the base. Many years ago I used this technique to keep Airfix cavalry horses permanently attached to their bases. Perhaps follow with a liberal coating of superglue gel.

Lock tite super glue with the little marker that etches soft plastic seems to work. I have painted mine so primer and sealer may have re-enforced glue bond.

I like contact cement. I used it to put together Airfix Britons in the 1970's and the bonds still hold, even though the figures crumble:(

Aileen's Stretchable Fabric glue. Doesn't take much… ;-)
