I have just bought a box of Chaos Warriors. They have to be the best models in the whole GW range, i love them, but, modelling them is a pain, has anyone else found huge gaps between the main body and cloak? Or is it just me modelling them wrong? I havent stuck any together yet as i havent cleaned them up. Please help, i hate using green stuff! The two parts will not tessilate without leaving a gap the size of the Marianas Trench!
That IS a farely large gap after all!!a gap the size of the Marianas Trench
One of the main problems people face when gluing on cloaks and optional extras is that they didnt consider where they were going to put them BEFORE they glued the rest of the model together.
What you need to do to fix the problem (without green stuff if possible) is to find the source of the problem. Does the cape have to long a neck piece? Do the warriors shoulders/helmet or even weapon get in the way?
A plastic model has been molded to fit together nicely which usually means its a simple error of construction. If this is the case simply pull the offending parts of and try again. If this is impossible maybe a small file to take away the most obtrusive elements will come in handy....
Also, the models may look better when fully glued together.
I have recently bought a unit of chaos warriors myself and apart from a few things fixable with the options above i havn't had any trouble....

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
Chaos warriors overall are nice and simple to put together. If your having trouble with gaps you can always green stuff or shave the models to get them together how you want. if your really struggling where you have large gaps consider going to a GW store and seeing if one of the staff or a friend who is more experienced. can walk you through putting together ranked up units. I really always recommend cleaning and trimming anything plastic, there are some good how to guides on the games workshop site, and most likely similar ones here.

Thanks for the feedback guys! I think you are right, i have just purchased a bad batch. It will be difficult to trim the models as the gaps are that big, alot of detail will be lost. But yes, my greenstuffing skills will show! Im scared lol, i havent done it before!
