I dont think im the only one who have pulled hair out of my head while cutting and glueing the small plastic parts together. For newcommers and experinced Crons players here is a small warrior guide which i found good. See this guide as a support to the allready excisting guide in the stickies. IMO this one is a lot better.

Not too shabby. I learned a lot of this hard way putting together a battleforce (my first necron models ever *sniff*).
Arm assembly is an acquired skill, no doubt about it. I find it takes extremely nimble fingers, but it is possible to dry-fit both arms in place (including the left wrist joint).
Once that's done, I find it's best to glue ONE joint in place, typically the left shoulder, but rather than merely sticking the arm in place and figuring out how to fit the gun arm on after it's dry, it's best to dry-fit the second arm on and hold it in place, at least for a few seconds, WHILE the left shoulder dries. A bit trickier, and has occasionally led to arms popping off and me cursing a lot, but in the long run it made things a bit easier, as with the left arm solidly in place, attaching the right arm's two glueing points is MUCH more tolerable.
Alternatively, I had success when gluing the left wrist first (just like in the guide), then holding the unglued shoulders in place.
When the wrist is dry, the arms can freely pivot up and down. Just put a drop of glue on the ball of each shoulder, then rotate them up and down. The action pulls glue into the joint, and allows you to (quickly, if you use Krazy Glue like I do), pose the arms as you like.
I remember putting together my first pack o' warriors (and my unending frustrations). My advice: glue the model to the base LAST. That way, you can prop-up multiple models to dry at once, instead of holding them one at a time and waiting for them to dry.
Speaking of annoying arms what brought this thought process on. "wow those warrior arms kinda suck to glue together.... we should make the Immortals metal and make guns that have to be glued in at least 4 places"
