Unboxing Malifaux - M2E Blessed of December

'A blessing in disguise...perhaps...'

The Blessed of December box contains enough parts for one miniature...namely the Blessed of December. It also contains a stat card for her though there are no upgrade cards.

Blessed of December - Sprue
The box has one sprue in it split into two pieces (so it actually fits in the box one presumes) as well as the aforementioned cards. Here's pictures of both sides of them...

Blessed of December - 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.

Blessed of December - 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.

Blessed of December - Assembled
The head is in two parts of which the chin fits into a recess and the head goes above. In my opinion it's far easier to place the parts separately rather than attach together first as the instructions seem to indicate. It's also worth mentioning that the models hand spread is slightly too wide for a 40mm base and the fingers overlap somewhat and if this bothers you then some creative basing may be required.

Blessed of December - Comparison Picture
Here's a comparison picture between the original metal version and the new M2E plastic one.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
