Wyrd Games at Gen Con 2015 - Day Two

I've decided to do a round-up of any Wyrd Games related news from Gen Con this year for all those unfortunates like myself who can't be there and need another reason to hate all those who got to go...

Day one's coverage can be found here.

It's obviously a picture heavy feature for those of you who like to know such things and I'll update the article should anything significant appear before I retire today...anything after that will appear no doubt in a 'day three' article...

Unboxing Malifaux - M2E Necropunks

Sometimes when you dismantle and then rebuild things you get parts left over...Resurrectionists have a use for those parts...

'Small Box' Cover

The Necropunks box contains enough parts for three miniatures...namely the Necropunks. It also contains stat cards for them though there are no upgrade cards.

Necropunks - Sprue
The box has one sprue in it as well as the aforementioned cards...well...technically it's one sprue in two halves. Here's pictures of both sides of both halves.

Stat Card
Front side only I'm afraid...

Wyrd Games do not put instructions in the boxes you instead need to download them from their website but I've put it here for your convenience. Just click on it for a larger version...

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. 


Necropunk 1 - Assembled
This one has very few issues other than the obviously quite spindly arms. Also the head and one arm are on the opposite sprue to that containing the main components.

Necropunk 2 - Assembled
It goes without saying that this particular model has some...challenging...aspects. The claws with the four pincers are in two halves which need attaching together and the separate piece is both small and the claws are delicate and the 'tubes' on all four are both thin and delicate. One of these 'tube' pieces is separate and one side goes on the inside of a rear limb (it completes a dome section on one if you're getting confused) and the other end attaches in a slight recess on the models back. The other tubes also attach to existing spaces in the centre of the models back. Hopefully you can tell from the pics and instructions (roughly) where they go...

Necropunk 3 - Assembled
This one is quite simple to assemble and even the staff is relatively sturdy.

Comparison Pictures
Here's some comparison pictures between the new plastics and the old metal versions.
