For several years I have used Elmer's Craft Bond (a better quality white glue) and been ecstatically happy with it (OK, maybe pleasantly pleased). So when I needed to buy new, I saw Elmer's Quick-Drying Craft Bond glue. Wel,,, I've used Aleene's Qyick drying Tacky glue and liked it, so . . . . This was the worst glue I have ever tried. While I like the quick dry feature, the glue has a problem I find very annoying: it doesn't actually glue. Warm spit would work better. So, I'll be making another trip to WalMart to buy my old stand by after I try to pawn the white tripe off on my grandkids. Note to self: when trying a new product, only by ONE. Sigh.
Wow. The only Elmer's product I've used in quite a while is their Carpenter's wood glue. It seems to work as intended, so that one I'll stick with.
For papercrafts, I use Scotch's Paper Adhesive or Quick-Dry Tacky glue. The only real difference between them I can see is that one has purple on the bottle, the other is tan. I *think* the tacky version dries a little faster, though I'd need to use a stop watch to tell for sure. Both set up *extremely* fast.
I wish they were a little less expensive, but they're priced competitively with other brands.
I've always been partial to Aleene's Tacky Glue, but I also like to use Elmer's School Glue that I picked up at a dollar store. The School Glue is much thinner, so it can be painted thin in larger areas. And when I start working I'll squirt out a small glob of glue to set up. If you let it set up for a minute or two, it becomes as thick as Tacky Glue.
Any gamers in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA?

I use different glues for different applications. Aleene's Tacky Glue is an excellent product and works quite well, and it comes in clear now, very cool. I don't use Elmer's at all - they don't make it like they used to -nuf said. Instead I use Titebond II, it is a thick wood glue with lots of strength. You can thin with water if needed, or just let a little sit out for a bit for a really thick and tacky glue that grabs immediately and holds tight. Besides, it's only a couple of bucks per 16 oz (473 mL) bottle. Not bad for something so versatile. It's only drawback is that it dries yellow, so wipe up any drips quickly!

Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)
