Chiming in here to say that Zoanthropes are pretty irritating... stragely enough more so for me than the Hive Tyrant. A bit of pinning on the Tyrant and it's got away without falling apart one (aside from one slight accident with his wing and a flying devilstick :S )

Even pinned with massive pins, my Zoanthropes still fall in half if I so much as look at them funny, and I ended up having to put a pin pretty much all the way through the body of each of mine to keep the back chimneys and side claws on.

the bretonian trebuchet is a absolute git to assemble. there are so many parts which have to go in at the same time.

Any metal model. I want to shun them. But some do stick nicely, like the Heavy Bolter Space Marine metal model. But worst of all, the metal models look nice mainly. Look at Terminator Marneus!

I agree the ork trukk is a bit hard,
but I would say the ork bikers are a real challenge, (atleast for me)
god, it took me 15 min to understand that you had to cut of the handles,
1 hour later I end up having 3 bikes destroyed lol...

Well, there was me thinking buying an exorcist to do a noise marine rhino conversion was a good idea.

I'm very glad I'm planning on heavily converting this, because it looks like putting it together normally and making it stay would be an absolute nightmare, hopefully with a lot of pinning my conversion will stay stuck!

The old RT lead/pewter vehicles, all of 'em.... The new stuff is a breeze by comparison...

Hands down, the land raider crusader. When I opened the box I found out that THERE WERE NO CRUSADER BITS IN IT............After another bus ride (I was 16 at the time) to GW and back (3 hours) I finally got around to assembling the thing. The hull was pretty standard, kinda reminded me of a rhino assembly, but the damned hurricane bolters took longer than my previous trip to GW! Not only that, but they also fell apart every time I even looked at my LRC funny. I cant wait for those new plastic sprues to come out! :biggrin:

:fuck:hurricane bolters:fuck:

For me I would have to say the Defiler (well just the legs) were the biggest pain in the ass. They just wouldn't set for me, they kept wanting to move around or pop out of the socket. :headbutt:

Mine would have to be the Master of the Ravenwing, the parts just wont align properly, I finally had to file down large parts and add GS to make it look good.

im a lurker on this site but i think i have to come out of the shadows to say that the first rogue trader plastic space marines were the hardest things to get together and actually look good. it was reallllyy easy to make them look bad tho. that and eldar guardians and krootox dont work so well...

I had a slight mismould of a lord of change which was the hardest thing I've ever attempted to make. Required serious converting and scenic basing just to let him stand up, and that's before I thing about the trauma of the arms and wings!

horrors of tzeentch

they are very easy to assemble its just when you are cleaning them up it takes ages! i like my models to look nice and the sprue marks to be filed away but horrors have soo much extra metal you have to file its silly.

epidemius - bad moulding lines = lots of filing and LOTS of green stuff

and you may laugh but tactical marines arnt that easy, building them properly
