So, I opened a wave serpent box to take a crack as assembling one for the first time, and it seems like the assembly instruction manual is.. woefully incomplete. The instructions are about 2 pages long, and there are sprues/parts in the box that do not appear to be in the manual at all. Is this representative of the most recently produced instructions for wave serpent assembly, or did I somehow get an outdated manual? The box itself is the 7th edition version.

Best way to assemble Wave Serpents is as follows:

Step 1: Ponder why would you ever pick Craftworlders
Step 2: Sell your Eldar
Step 3: Buy Dark Eldar for better looking vehicles
Step 4: Profit and happiness

And on a serious note - just write to GW support, they usually are nice enough to provide help with stuff like that.

Ha. I've been playing Dark Eldar for 17 years. I have *plenty* of DE vehicles.

This is me 'branching out' a bit. It's nice to have a small contingent of craftworlders for a change of pace, or for the occasional 'superfriends' alliance.

The Wave Serpent box is a bit confusing. The instructions are for the Wave Serpent, but the parts for the Falcon are included too. That means you have a spare back section and door and some weapons and sensors that you don't need in the Wave Serpent assembly.

Is that what all those bits were for? I thought it odd that I had two options for the back section of the tank.

I also found that there were bits for many of the guns that I couldn't figure out where to place as well.

I had the same problem. There's two backs - the longer one is the one that you need for the Wave Serpent. I used some blue-tac to dry fit it all together first. It goes together pretty easily.

The thing I wasn't sure about was the bits that hang out the front - which were what.

Happy to help out if you need a hand.

I eventually figured it out. Longer back is for the wave serpent. There are two antenna things in the box, and, judging from various wave serpent images, it doesn't matter which one you use. There are also some extra soul-stone-ish attachments, which look like they're entirely optional... most common placement is one to the right of the cockpit, and one on the front left side.

Some of the diagrams on the instruction guide were a little confusing, but I eventually figured out how to put it all together based on how well pieces fit after pushing them together in various ways.
