Unboxing Malifaux - M2E Silent Ones

'Silence is golden...'

The Silent Ones box contains enough parts for two miniatures...namely the Silent Ones. It also contains a stat card for them though there are no upgrade cards.

Silent Ones - 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 as well as a closer look at the individual sections...

Silent Ones - 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.

Silent Ones

Silent One 1 - Assembled
The right arm is quite thin and those fingers are very delicate...I'm sure she's indicating that there's now two Silent One models rather than making a rude gesture of some kind...

 Silent One 2 - Assembled
The legs will go on the wrong way around though they do look slightly wrong when you do so, the buckles go on the insides if you can't work it out. There's a recess inside the cloak for the left arm and I found that installing it first helps with the alignment of the body with the cloak though I'd dry-fit first before making up your own mind about assembly order.

Silent One - Comparison Picture
Here's a comparison picture between the original metal version and the new M2E plastic one. This is the only one of the two that had an equivalent model in metal.

Here's a couple of group comparison pictures between the original metal version and the new M2E plastic ones.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
