Default Favorite kit

So what's everyone's favorite kit to assemble? It doesn't even need to be the prettiest, or the most unique, or even the easiest, just what kit does everyone love to put together the most? Mine would have to be the new Chaos Raptor plastic kit. I love the detail that's put into everything from the head down to the weapons, those chainswords are just beautiful! Plus, for every Raptor unit I put together, I've got plenty of power armour sized marine compatible lightning claws, all of which are gorgeous. They also include an extra five heads, most of which fit in well with a Night Lords themed army, so this gives me plenty of alternatives to those horned helms that come with the standard kits. I wish that Imperial Guard had some well made kits, but who knows, maybe their new release will bring plenty of new goodies to bear

I rather enjoy putting together Thunder Guppies (Storm Ravens) as I actually really like the looks of them.
Like a Verne Troyer Thunderhawk.

As someone who likes magnets I'm a big fan of the Wraithguard box.

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

I actually really enjoy the scenery kits, 40K suburbia type.

I really enjoy the eldar howling banshees. I know they're finecast but still the poses look amazing. After that, wraithguard.

95% of the minis I buy are second hand so I don't get to build many from scratch, however I did treat myself to the Dark Talon at the start of the year and that was a lot of fun to put together I found. Surprisingly so.

I like the death company, loads of detail, fully compatible at no extra cost!

Skullcrushers of Khorne are my new favorite. Juggernauts, awesome weapons, lots of Khorne-themed stuff with badass helmets.

eldar Falcon and its variants, i must have built close to 20 of these over the years, love them to bits, the introduction of the kit and the white dwarf explaining the process of how it was designed and created is still one of my fondest Hobby moments.
Great model, really needs a recut tool how ever as the current one is old and tired.
