Default Worst hobby related injury?

Knives and other dangerous tools go hand in hand with modelling, so injuries are bound to occur every now and then. What's the worst injury you've endured? Cut with that brand new hobby knife? Stepped on that Dark Eldar Reaver you dropped? Super glued your hand to your face?

Mine is the 1st example, I put a brand new blade into my hobby knife and about 2 minutes later sliced into the side of finger. Silly me putting my finger there in the 1st place.

I spilled a whole bottle of super glue onto my trouser leg. Let's just say synthetic fibres and super adhesive hurt like balls when they are slowly bonding to your skin.

I've sliced into my own fingers with hobby knives more times than I can clearly recall

Can't exactly name a particular one, but it probably had something to to with super glue. Guess I glued to fingers together, because that has happened quite a lot of times, but I dunno which time was the worst.

Yeah, it's hard to pick up a lot of Dark Eldar units without being spiked.

It's worse when assembling a squad of warriors... So many spikes it induces Vietnam like flashbacks.

Don't drink and glue! Misstook my glue and tequila. 18 hours at intensive care and two surgeries.
