Unboxing Malifaux - M2E Dead Doxies

'It's not only Belles that are rotten...'

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

Dead Doxies - Sprue
The box has one sprue in it as well as the aforementioned cards. Here's pictures of both sides of it...

Dead Doxies - 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.

Dead Doxy 1 - Assembled
I found the head and hand alignment is a bit tricky and I had a fair bit of trouble getting the head sections to fit together flush partly due to the fact that the head can be placed on the neck area at a variety of angles that seem fine at first so dry-fitting first is heartily recommended. The rest of the model is quite simple in comparison.

Dead Doxy 2 - Assembled
The 'Bustle' parts are small and fiddly and quite difficult to align so they match the appearance on the box but to be fair they don't need to be exact to still look fine. She also has a fairly small two-part head and the hat in her hand is also in two parts. You'll need to be systematic with the assembly of this model as it's a bit fiddly...
