You can pick up the 4th edition warhammer goblins for literally pennies. Last time I looked the average goblin was worth around 10p.

If you're chopping up metal miniatures or big pieces of plastic, your easiest tool is a pair of clippers with one flat side and one bevelled. GW make these: http://www.games-workshop.com/en-WW/Citadel-Fine-Detail-Cutters but you can get the same sort of thing a lot cheaper elsewhere.
The only problem is that if you want to use both of the parts you're cutting apart, the part on the sloped side of the clippers will get distorted and squashed. If you want to be totally accurate and not ruin either piece, a razor saw is better.
For small pieces, or for cleaning up bigger bits, a scalpel/hobby knife/artist's blade is useful. It will also remove mould lines, which makes paint jobs look much better.
For gluing, unless you're making something big, superglue (cyanoacrylate) is best, unless you're gluing plastic to plastic, in which case plastic cement is better. If you are gluing heavy or fragile joints, pinning will strengthen the joint, and to do that you'd need a pin vice and some suitable wire (paperclips are a common source, especially if you can "borrow" them from your workplace or have them lying around at home already).

I love GW stores.
Me - I want to buy one of your old products please.
GW twerp - No, no, no, our old products are expensive and horrible, what you want is our new super great much much cheaper and newer product!
Me - But this one costs more, how is that cheaper? And it's not at all what I'm looking for.
GW twerp- Huh? Shiny! Look!
I've also had the experience of some red shirt trying to push old miniatures on me even though I'd already seen the new version of it that would be released a few weeks later. "Well that's just a rumor, do you really want to gamble on a rumor when you could have these right now?" Yes, yes I would, now piss off! :D
Anyway, enjoy the gobbos! They're currently OP!

If you're cutting through thick parts especially when it comes to metal, a hobby saw and a vice will save you some blood. Unlike the clipper advice above, this results in a really clean cut.

How expensive bloodbowl would be... yeah, because how can GW make a profit on 11-player teams?!
