Hiya! I'm a Tomb King player originally, but the lure of the Wood Elves won me over and I recently bought the battalion box set. I've glued together about 15 of the Glade Guard so far, and I'm finding that due to their large cloaks they really don't line up very well. Does anyone else get this problem? Also, I had to file down the necks of my models a lot to get any of the heads to fit on snuggly. Is this a common problem? I'm so used to making skeletons that its really a nice change to be making actual living creatures for once
I feel your pain. Cloaks are a problem for ALL of us. You just have to build them in a way that they won't get in the way of each other. For me, I position most of my glade guard left foot forward so their bows (and cloaks) go forward and back, not side to side. If you're placing them in a single line (which you should be doing) this setup should work nicely.
Completely agree with arishnakoger on the cloak front, nothing else seems to work very well...
And the amount of time I've spent filing those cruddy necks down is absurd, but its a necessity unless you want your GG to have weirdly long and ill-fitting necks....

Ah all right. I have been putting the left foot forwards so the cloaks go front to back, but as I finish them I have been ranking them up 5-wide. I haven't played a game with them yet, so haven't realised that in a straight line they fit fine. Thanks for the advice!
I had that problem too, but i didn't realized it when I was putting my first models together. I had to number them under their base in a way that they don't get stuck in each other. I had no problems with the neck though. The plastic glue I used was perfect.

What he said. Whilst they have been annoying, they're not that bad. Put a bit of strategic thought into how you want to assemble them (and yes, it does mean youll have to use the hideous cloaks- but look on the bright side. The better cloaks will be available for conversions).
Heads aren't too bad. A chop and a file will sort out any rebellious behaviour.
