Unboxing Malifaux - M2E Widow Weaver

Can you make me a Teddy please?...

The Widow Weaver box contains enough parts for one miniature...namely Widow Weaver. It also contains a stat card for her and a single upgrade card.

The box has one sprue in it as well as the aforementioned cards.

Here's pictures of both sides.

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. Wyrd Miniatures also have pretty much stopped putting instructions in things and you'll need to get them from the download section of their website. Instead of bouncing you about I've put the instructions here for your convenience. Just click on them for a larger version...

Widow Weaver - Stat Card (M2E)
Wyrd Games requested that I don't publish complete stat cards so this is front only I'm afraid.

Widow Weaver - Assembled
The head is in three sections and I had a tiny bit of trouble aligning the two-part face section so make sure to dry-fit these parts before gluing. The parasol handle is quite thin so be careful with this part and the two part section that slots into the top over that has an alignment notch so you can orientate the 'frill' part correctly. Even though the handle has a specific place that it 'sits' in the assembly you could easily alter the angle if you had a slightly different pose in mind.

Some-one going by the name 'Yro Moeroboy Hare' on the 'Wyrd Place' Facebook group had this tip for the head -  About the head: I found the trick is to assemble first the upper part: the 2 pieces together generate a hole in with you can perfectly fit the mouth. Several other people piped in to agree with him as well so we'll call that confirmed, lol.

Here are a couple of close-ups where I had my head related alignment issues. Dry-fitting would more than likely have solved that so I'd recommend that you do so when assembling your own model.

Widow Weaver - Comparison Picture
There's not a great deal of difference between the older metal and newer plastic models though (in my opinion at least) the detail is 'crisper' on the newer version. I also prefer the way the newer model is looking sideways over her shoulder.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
