Unboxing Malifaux - Mysterious Effigy


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

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

Mysterious 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.

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.

Mysterious Effigy - Assembled
This model looks like it's going to be far more tricky to assemble than it actually is. The legs fit neatly into the underpart of the main body in a cross pattern and as long as you're systematic the model goes together well. As usual you'll need to be careful with the thin parts though...

I was a bit heavy handed with the glue at one point so I'll need to tidy up the base a bit...

Here's some close-ups...

Mysterious Effigy - Comparison Picture
Here's a couple of comparison pictures between the original metal version and the new M2E plastic one.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
