Unboxing Malifaux - Sammy LaCroix

'Imitation is the best form of flattery...'

The Sammy LaCroix box contains enough parts for one miniature...namely Sammy LaCroix. It also contains a stat card for them though there are no upgrade cards.

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

Sammy LaCroix - 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.

Sammy LaCroix - Instructions
I couldn't find any official instructions for this model but as soon as I do they'll appear here.

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.

Sammy LaCroix - Assembled
The lower body is in two halves and the feet slot in underneath into a gap created where the two halves meet. The Voodoo Doll in the left hand is in three pieces which are easy to misalign as they have no actual location points so be sure the edges are together when you add glue. The hat is also in three pieces though only the part with the one thin feather requires careful handling. There are also some small pointy bits such as pins and the needle in his right hand which you'll need to be careful not to snap during the assembly process.

The model is based on a 30mm Wyrd Games Bayou base insert supplied separately.

Here's some close-ups...

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
