Default New Glues and Liquid Green Stuff on the GW webiste

looks like Games Workshop have released new versions of their glues...

http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/ca...e=paints-tools

They now have Thick and Thin Super Glue - 4.10 each

Thick and Thin Plastic Glue again for 4.10 each

and a pot of liquid Green Stuff for 2.30 (pot is the same size as paints)

they look handy, god only knows when using plastic glue a thick blob gets onto into an important bit, that you can't get it out properly and you lose detail...

don't know if they are fair prices or not? never really looked into Liquid GS too much.

I'm always suprised that people don't use brush on glue (like Tamiya's) for platics... Anyways, good to see GW investing in the "craft" side of the hobby.

The glues are a tad expensive. Considering the glue I buy is about 2 and lasts longer than GW and has more in and in general it's just better. It's Loctite super glue

The Liquid Green stuff has been out a while (I think the same for the glues to be perfectly honest) and it seems a bit expensive, I'm pretty sure Milliput has their version of soluble Putty and it's been around for a while. Not sure how much though.

EDIT:

Also, nice to see GW using something that works:




:D

Liquid GS has been out a while but is affordable enough and ok to use

The glues are just pricey, revell make really good plastic glue for much cheaper, and I've never been impressed by the GW super glues

same opinion as calgar, the GW hobby products are really just marked-up products that are usually WORSE than the cheaper competitors.

I have used the gw glues today,yeah i visited a store ! Anyway they are very good,the thin plastic glue is almost certainly contacta professional in my opinon,its got some serious grab to it. normally i wouldnt buy plastic glue as im a superglue with a brush man but i would buy that stuff for delicate stuff and the super glues are brill on resin,didnt test on metal as they had non to glue. paints will be announced next week according to the dude in the store

So they're only, what, 15 years behind Contacta?

And they still over price it, can get 25g (5g more) contacta for 3, easy.

And frankly GW Superglue can only improve. I've been using Loctite for a while with no complaints, but I get the solid bottle with a fairly precision nozzle which is a little expensive. Maybe I'll have a look at it in store.

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

At 4$ for 40ml it's pretty hard to beat...

GW is about 15 years behind the rest of the hobby and i use Precision Poly which sells for $5.50 unlike the GW version for $11.00.

I have NEVER used GW glues. Ridiculously overpriced. There are so many options out there, don't pick them!

Waste of bloody money...
