Unboxing Malifaux - M2E Tuco

"Finding a hat that fits must be tricky..."

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

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

Tuco - 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.

Tuco - 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.

Tuco - Assembled
The models right hand is quite small but has an adequate attachment point. The rest of the model is only four pieces though one of these is a tiny section of hat with the horns on. This hat section can tilt up and down so make sure it is in the correct place before the glue goes off and your 'stuck' with it at an odd angle.

Tuco - Comparison Picture
At some point I'll acquire the original metal versions of the models missing from my collection and at that point you'll get comparison pictures...however that time is not today unfortunately...

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
