Unboxing Malifaux - War Wabbit

If Gremlins riding a giant rabbit seems unusual then your probably playing the wrong game...

This was part of the Wyrd Games Easter sale and as a 'special edition' therefore arrived in a bag rather than the usual Wyrd Games box...this also is technically an un-bagging rather than an un-boxing but I'm not creating a new tab, lol. It's entirely possible that this model will appear in future promotional events as previous 'Limited Edition' models have also re-appeared later...

The War Wabbit bag contains enough parts for one miniature...namely the War Wabbit. It also contains a stat card for it though there are no upgrade cards.

The bag has one sprue in it as well as the aforementioned card...

Should there be any assembly issues with the model then they will be listed in the appropriate section and you can view larger versions of the smaller pictures by clicking on them. There are assembly instructions for this one below...

Stat Card

There are a number of troublesome points when assembling this model that are worth noting. There was a slight gap where the two halves of the 'Wabbit' meet by the face area that may require a bit of filing or filling as necessary. There's also a couple of mould lines that go through detail such as fur but they can be removed fairly easily by scraping along the edge with a sharp scalpel. The straps attach to the sprue at the mid point so it's difficult to remove them without either snapping them or leaving a lump of plastic on them that's tricky to remove from such a thin part so be careful with this bit. If it's any relief they are fairly easy to locate on the model though.

Any-one who has ever assembled Gremlins will be unsurprised to hear that the one has separate tiny feet but even they might double-take when I tell you that the other has separate ears...yes...ears. The usual advice about having a pair of tweezers handy applies here...also...for goodness sake don't drop one onto the carpet...

...and here are some close-ups...

...the eggs and the base...

Comparison Pictures
Here's a comparison picture between the War Pig and the War Wabbit.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.

Forge World Newsletter #454

If in doubt add more guns...or different guns....but basically the answer is going to involve guns...

Tearing through the armour plating of enemy vehicles, the Vindicator laser destroyer array is a potent weapon of destruction. First retrofitted into the heavily armoured Deimos pattern Vindicator chassis during the dark days of the Horus Heresy, several Legions took to fielding this variant as a mainline battle tank, proving itself on many occasions as an able tank hunter. After millennia of brutal warfare across the galaxy, it is still in favour within the Space Marine Chapters, the Vindicator Laser Destructor continuing to bring retribution to the enemies of Mankind.
The Deimos Vindicator Laser Destroyer may be fielded in Space Marine Legion armies in Horus Heresy games and also in Space Marine armies in standard games of Warhammer 40,000. Its updated rules can be found HERE.
This is a complete multi-part resin and plastic kit. It is available to pre-order today for despatch from Friday 1st May.
“Any man who calls for peace is an enemy as much as the traitor who seeks your life – treat them with the contempt they deserve.”

Rogal Dorn
Primarch of the Imperial Fists
Skilled infiltrators and masters of reconnaissance, the Raven Guard Legion was the hidden hand of the Emperor from even before the time of the Great Crusade, hunting down any who would not bend the knee to the Imperial truth. Striking from the shadows, the XIXth Legion is ever prepared for enacting rapid, overwhelming assaults from unexpected quarters against the enemies of Mankind.
Available to pre-order from today are six upgrade kits for the Raven Guard Legion: 
Also new today is the Space Marine Mk VI Command Upgrade set:
First trialled by elements of the Raven Guard Legion during the closing days of the Great Crusade, Mk VI battle plate was later known as ‘Corvus’ armour in honour of their Primarch, Corvus Corax. The addition of enhanced sensors provides those warriors of the Legiones Astartes who wear Mk VI armour into battle with considerable advantages over older armour patterns.

This set contains 2 Legion Vexillas, 2 Legion Nuncio-voxes, 2 Legion Nuncio-vox operator helmets and 2 Legion Sergeant helmets for Space Marines equipped with Mk VI Corvus armour.

All of these multi-part, resin upgrade kits are available to pre-order today for despatch from Friday 1st May.
