I am really enjoying the latest release from the Barons' War Kickstarters, and the Paul Hicks sculpts are lovely as ever. I wondered, though, if anyone else was struggling a bit with the 'Veteran Crossbowmen' figures. The bow of the crossbows is separate, and when I try to attach it to the stock with superglue, it slips around, droops, and just generally looks unconvincing and obviously two pieces. I'm considering using green stuff, but I'm no sculptor and not sure if it will give any better finish. Do any other veterans of this Kickstarter have any experience or suggestions on how best to assemble these figures?

Have you tried superglue gel?

They have a quick dry spray that works almost on contact.

Thanks, both. I did try superglue gel, which did for one. The others I settled on green stuff; quite fiddly, but I eventually got something passable, I think (waiting for it to set now). I preferred the complete crossbows one had to insert into the figure with the BW2 release.
