Ok so I hear people complain about how hard some models are to make, owning a hive tyrant I know what people are talking about.

But I have just made the necron battleforce after 10 hours of constant work on it. I cannot for the life of me figure out why it took so long this rates on my most difficult box set to assemble.
The tyranid battle force only took 2 hours and all of this is without painting it.

So whats the most difficult box set you've ever made you, can rate it how long it took to build, how difficult to build the models were or anything like that

unfortunatley thats just not possible, every one builds at different rates and skill levels and struggles at different parts or reasons, for me the DE and Tau boxsets would be bitches to put together because they are so flimsy, whereas others would sstruggle with orks or crons. :)

The trygon wasnt hard to put together, but all the spikes butchered my hands. I could have painted that thing in my own blood after the what it did to me durring assembally.

Punctuation marks are symbols that indicate the structure and organization of written language, as well as intonation and pauses to be observed when reading aloud.

In written English, punctuation is vital to disambiguate the meaning of sentences.
For example, "woman, without her man, is nothing" and "woman: without her, man is nothing" have greatly different meanings, as do "eats shoots and leaves" and "eats, shoots and leaves".
"King Charles walked and talked half an hour after his head was cut off" is alarming; "King Charles walked and talked; half an hour after, his head was cut off", less so. (For English usage, see the articles on specific punctuation marks.)

The rules of punctuation vary with language, location, register and time and are constantly evolving. Certain aspects of punctuation are stylistic and are thus the author's (or editor's) choice. Tachygraphic language forms, such as those used in online chat and text messages, may have wildly different rules.

Do you feel better now? Hijacking a 14 year old's thread, an interesting one at that, to tell him nothing to do with his post, and instead slate him for his grammar?

Ignore this guy patronising you Aboy, this is a good thread.

I have edited the first post to make it easier reading. :wink:

jimmy, if its that much of an issue for you report the post and leave alone.




The only current mini kit that has made me swear "no more!" so far has been the Necron Tomb Spyder.

The First Landraider Crusader with all metal sponsons is probably the worst standard kit I have had to do though.

Luckily assembly has never been my problem, I'm pretty adept at that side of the hobby, now painting.........

Trying to glue the sonic weapons on some noise marines without a pinning vice drove me mad.

Big metal weapons being mounted on plastic bodies is never good.

I am now the proud owner of a new pinning vice :p

The model can now take it's own weight without collapsing.

WFB, so sorry for not 40k, but the Goblin Lord on Gigantic Spider is currently causing me much grief and heart-ache. Really, it is a bitch to put the saddle-seat-thing together so it fits and will sit on the back of the bloody spider! Grrrrrrrrr...

Without a doubt the Thunderfire Cannon. That kit is hell in a blister.

Idk why but right now the slann's throne is pissing me off...so much that at one point I threw the thrown across the room and get it embedded into the wall. so yeah, fucking pissed off.

In 40k world I must say the original metal LRC variant pissed me off just as much almost to the same amount as the above statement

I was close to doing that with my Hive Tyrant, not so much for the fact that it was difficult just that the damn glue refused to stick, I got one bit together let it overnight to dry then when I went to glue the next part the first bit would fall apart. This happened three or four times but I resisted the urge to lob it, stuck at it and eventually it held. Happy Days!!:biggrin:

i struggle with sentinels to be honest, i love the rules, and the model. but sticking the 'body' together is a pain for me. then theres gluing the legs quick enough that the glue doesnt dry and set it in an awkward pose :/
