    What are the best practises vis a vis attaching figures to
    the playfield items? Double-sided tape?

    Thanks for the tips!

    Museum putty works well

    I am wondering wheather to go for putty epoxy - that seems a bit overkill, but on the other hand, it would make things really stick in their places and of course the item to which the figure has been attached to could be replaced.

    Give the Museum putty a try 1st and see if it works good enough for your needs

    Find the nearest screw post and tap into it with coat-hanger wire that is screwed into back of figurine.
    If you want to be able to lift PF and service without stuff falling off then use wire.

    I second (third?) the museum putty. Holds solidly, removes without a trace. I have a full set of figurines mounted in my LOTR LE with the stuff. (looks better than the stock set, imo.) Why ruin plastics with epoxy?

    I actually had never heard of the museum putty. I guess I have to order it online, I do not know what would be similar stuff here in Finland... Thanks for the excellent tips!
