Fortifications – Plasma Obliterator WIP

Hands up if you were one of the few that was successful in obtaining a Plasma Obliterator.  I missed out on the pre-orders, however, I was at GW West Edmonton when they opened and was able to snag a box.  For those of you who missed out you avoided the grief of gluing together, in my opinion, the worst GW model to assemble.

The pieces would not sit right.  I broke apart a few components that I assembled, shaved the glue off and started over only to meet similar results.  I wanted to throw the models through a wall but the high price tag and limited edition status put a stop to that.  As you can see it is crooked in the assembly and there parts that don’t meet.  I had to shave off some of the plastic for pieces to fit flush.

CoD 005

The plasma cannon, platform and Aquiila are not shown in the picture.  I have primed all pieces and hope to get it painted soon.  My hope is once the model is painted it will take away the shame of how poorly I assembled the model.

I’ve put together some frustrating models.  This one takes the cake by far.  What are some of the worst models you have assembled?  I will add the Biovore and Grey Knights two-handed weapons arms to my list.

  1. The worst model I’ve ever put together wasn’t a GW one. It was a FW one. The ork mega/meka dread. So much pinning and sanding. Gorkanaut has about 4x the pieces and goes together in less time.

    Shame a limited edition kit has fitment issues like that 😦

    • Some of my Forgeworld models had some headaches attached to them. Some greenstuff fixed those headaches. The Land Raider Achilles had some gaps that were a wee bit too big. I think part of the reason I am putting off the assembly of the Caestus Assault Ram is the unpredictability of Forgeworld coming together.

      And Orks, I can only imagine.

      • At least with orks, gaps, gouges, and dents all look like they are supposed to be there :).
