Old Hydra! I said Land Speeder, but it's really not. The damn thing needs a pin in all 5 necks, the 3 separate heads, the 4 legs and the 2 parts of the body. Spent ages assembling one this evening (including molding a replacement head for one that was missing) and it still needs a shit ton of greenstuff and filing to sort it out.

The Metal space marine venerable dreadnaught, was a total pain in the ass. But I will go with the consensus anything Metal sucks to assemble.

The thunderfire cannon. It's a wonderful model but it just doesn't fit together.

I second this....what a horrible thing to put together. I had to use so much greenstuff in the joints to get it to stay together!

I had a hell of a time with the Penitent Engine I just built. Damn thing comes with no instructions for added fun. when I finally figured it out I took pics and posted a crappy tutorial in the tutorials thread for any other poor sap who has to build one of these.

I'm very confused with all the people complaining about Zoanthropes, put a nice large pin in the tail to body join and you'll have no issue. I managed to put 3 together in no time at all and even after being dropped a few times I still have no issues with them falling apart.

If in doubt, use a bigger pin :D

On the subject of horrible to assemble models, the hellcannon, without a shadow of a doubt is the scariest model I've ever looked at, no instructions, stupid amounts of parts and al sorts of fiddly joins that are a real pain to put a decent pin into.

Without a doubt the best tip I can give for assembling metal modes with minimum issues is to get a drill bit for your pin vice which is exactly matched to the size of the pin you use, the parts will fit snugly with the pins and in you drill them in far enough, they're pretty unlikely to ever come apart once they've been glued!

Old One Eye was a really fucked up model to build. Those HUGE crab-claws weighted alot more then any superglue bond would support ever. When a parent buys his 10 year old one of them you know you have work ahead of you

But since they are OOP I'm gonna second the Hillcannon. Its a plethoria of bits that can cause troubles. Mine is still in bits, but thats thanks to the WoC army getting on ice, that's not gonna be a fun part constructing...

Another pain in the ass unit to build is Obliterators. Its not very hard to build em, but in order for them to survive you must pin all damn weapons and thats a royal pain
