Unboxing Malifaux - Tara's M2E 'Herald of Obliteration'

Damn Tyrants...they never seem to do any of their own dirty work...

The 'Herald of Obliteration' box contains enough parts for six miniatures...namely Tara, her Totem and Enforcer Karina (5SS), The Nothing Beast (10SS) and three Void Wretches (4SS each). It also contains stat cards for each one and six upgrade cards, four of which are for Tara, one for Tara or The Nothing Beast and one for Karina.

This makes the Soulsstone value of the box...

Tara (0), Karina (5), The Nothing Beast (10), Void Wretch (4, 4, 4) Total (27) or (30) with a maximum Soulstone cache and (37) with maximum 'out of the box' upgrades.

The box has five sprues in it as well as the aforementioned cards and we'll look at each of these in turn...should there be any assembly issues with any of the models then they will be listed in the appropriate section and you can view larger versions of the smaller pictures by clicking on them.


The Sprue

Stat Card

Upgrade Cards

The side part of the 'skirt' and the two upper parts of her cloak may need a little filing to get to fit correctly or you can use some equivalent of liquid green stuff to fill the gaps.

Karina and The Nothing Beast.

The Sprue

Stat Card

One of these can be given to Tara as well as The Nothing Beast and is labelled as such, the other is for Karina.


Void Wretches.

The Sprues

Stat Card
All three Void Wretch Stat Cards are identical

The legs are a bit spindly so take care when assembling. You may need to support the model in place while your gluing it to the bases so it doesn't fall over (they're not brilliantly balanced as you can see from the pictures below)

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.

Crew a Week Challenge - Tara's 'Herald of Obliteration'

This weeks crew is that of 'Nightmare' Tara.

I was at a loss as to colour scheme for the Nothing Beast and Void Wretches as the 'pastel' blue colour scheme appeared to be done quite a lot already. I therefore started with a darker blue (at my better half's suggestion) and worked from there...Looking at the pictures close-up I think I need another highlight on Tara and Karina but I'm fairly happy with how everything else turned out...

She was a bit tricky to photograph due to the angle I attached the sword arm as the camera insisted on focusing on either her or her sword but steadfastly refused to take a picture of both...


Void Wretch 1

Void Wretch 2

Void Wretch 3

Nothing Beast
The Nothing Beast rather impolitely chose to take a form that failed to fit under my lamp...inconsiderate bastard (or perhaps bitch) that it is...

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
