Unboxing Malifaux - Rasputina's 'Cult of December' Starter Box Set

There's snow in the mountain passes...not to mention the occasional cannibalistic death cult.....

In the event that you're actually looking for the new plastic M2E 'Children of December' Starter Set Unboxing it can be found here.

The Box - Front and Rear.

With the unboxing articles that cover metal models I'll be taking the initial pictures without any cleaning up so you can see them 'warts and all'...


Ice Golem.

Ice Gamin.

Here's them assembled and mounted onto some scenic looking 30mm (except for the Ice Golem who's on a 50mm) bases.

Rasputina - Assembled.
Her hands are separate but aren't terribly difficult to attach as long as you're using decent glue.

Ice Golem - Assembled.
Both arms are separate pieces. The joints aren't particularly well defined so you can point the arms in other directions should you wish a 'come and get it...' pose and conversions of him throwing objects should be relatively simple. I've assembled this one in the 'default' pose though.

Ice Gamin - Assembled.
These are single piece models with a supporting piece that needs removing on a couple of them which (as long as your cutters are decent) doesn't leave much that needs tidying up. There's a fair bit of flash on the models fingertips which in some instances blends very closely into the fingers so be careful what you cut off.....

For those of you who are interested here are some comparison pictures between these older metal models and the newer plastics...
