Yeah, full agreement here. I just built one for a Slaanesh sorcerer and it is STILL causing me trouble.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Was putting some orcs together today and remembered the bane of my fantasy side: The new plastic black orcs! Those f#%&*@! are so freaking annoying to put together, whoever thought it would be a good idea to make the torso, upper arms, and upper legs one solid piece and the lower extremities seperate was a complete moron and deserves to be flogged. Each foot goes with a specific body, but it's never clear which goes with which, so I more often than not end up grafting the stupid little things to my fingers instead of the model!

My hated foe was the old style metal Balrog... the wings made me very sad face, and my pin vice broke trying to pin them to the body.


You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...

my bane is putting together all my warriors, sure they are not "hard" per say, until you get to the arms that if you use too little glue, they fall off, too much and your hands get stuck holding them cuz if you dont hold it, the arms fall off anyway, Ive done one that goes together perfect, then I have one that took me atleast 20 tries to get together. they are back and fourth.

that or my monolith... ugh do I hate putting big things together, I always miss a step (like glueing the sides together then realizing I didnt put the arc guns in.

For me it would have to be the metal techmarine but most metals mainly the large ones are horrible to build .

It's not a GW model but the worst kit I ever put together was Monogram's 1/48 scale
P-38 Lightning. That has to be the worst model kit ever made. Nothing fits right on it.
The old P-51 from monogram is kindof a bitch too, where the wings join the fusilage and under the nose/wingroot area. Hell, most of those old monogram kits sucked.

for me it has to be the bloodthirster since 1 i was newb when I put it together, and 2 didn't have good tansport for it (my parents told me to use a foam reastraunt take out box to transport it) then after a month i manage to finish building it and put on the table (about six inches or so into it) then I walked away and heard a thus on the wall, I looked on the ground and the bloodthirster was in peices on the ground.
