my worst model is the land raider crusader (still havn't gotten the hurricane bolters together) and the multimelta is on perma snapped bitz duty (looks like a mostly disarmed land raider when i field it)
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.
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!
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:
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!
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
The hive tyrants are a pain in the bum but the flat out worst has to be the bloomin zoanthropes,
they are a complete nightmare due to the weight in certain positions and really, really need to be remade in plastic
