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!

squirmydad: True, I put in "dropbox" as a search term and I've been able to fix some of the dead image links associated with dropbox.

squirmydad: You always tell new members how much stuff there is here, but you really have to dive to find it, and some of it is hidden or broken.

cowboyleland: I thought I started a new thread late last night but apparently it glitched. I was asking if anyone had any leads on some female barbarians I could mod onto lion bodies to make D&D style lamia. DOH! I see the thread now.

shep: I think, I'll point him towards the Kickstarter with bravesirkevin's designs, once it goes live...

shep: He basically says that he loves the flat design for being a flat, easy to store design. However, he does not like building cardboard minis, so he's very glad that he can buy these MDF versions.

squirmydad: They are the official licensee for One Monk minis, they also sell designs from Antohammer and Brave Adventures.

shep: I found this website (https://flatpackforces.com/collections/fantasy) via a youtube video. They are offering 2D flat MDF-minis, and they have loads of One Monk designs up for sale. I was wondering, if they licensed the minis, or if this is art theft...
