Unboxing Malifaux - Brutal Effigy

Sometimes all you need is a little brutality...

The Brutal Effigy box contains enough parts for one miniature...namely the Brutal Effigy. It also contains a stat card for him though there are no upgrade cards.

Brutal Effigy - Sprue
The box has one sprue in it as well as the aforementioned card. Here's pictures of both sides of it...

Brutal Effigy - Stat Card
Wyrd Games didn't like my publishing pictures of both sides of the stat cards so you'll have to make do with this...

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 or instruction pictures by clicking on them.

Brutal Effigy - Instructions

Some General Notes on Assembly.
Many of these models contain quite small parts so depending on how dexterous you are you might consider getting yourself some tweezers. Dry-fitting is also always a good idea in case a part needs a tiny bit of extra filing or filling as some of the fits are quite tight. Where the parts on the sprue are quite thin (chains, weapon shafts, cables and the like) then it might be better to remove parts with a sharp scalpel rather than cutters.

Brutal Effigy - Assembled
Despite having over a dozen parts this model is mostly issue free with a few points of note.  Firstly the lantern dangling from the coffin will break off with very little pressure but fortunately glues back on fairly simply so either be careful removing it from the sprue, when placing the piece with it on onto the model and whenever you pick it up from that point onwards, lol. The coffin slightly gets in the way when attaching the arms so I'd put that on last. I also found that it's better to assemble the head and hat and then add the arm holding onto the edge as doing it the other way around will make correct alignment pretty much impossible (imo at least). The spurs on the back of the boots are also quite delicate so be careful when your holding onto the legs during assembly...at least they're not separate though...

Here's some close-ups...

Here's a comparison picture between the original metal version and the new M2E plastic one.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
