Unboxing Malifaux - Fermented River Monks
"Just the one drink then...maybe two..."
The Fermented River Monks box contains enough parts for three miniatures...namely the Fermented River Monks. It also contains stat cards for them though there are no upgrade cards.
Fermented River Monks - Sprue
The box has one sprue in it as well as the aforementioned cards. Here's pictures of both sides of it...
Fermented River Monks - 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.
Fermented River Monks - 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.
Fermented River Monks
Fermented River Monk A - Assembled
Fermented Monk 'A' on the sprue is listed on the instructions as '3'. The rear cloak piece is separate not attached as the instructions would indicate. Only the left leg has what you might think of as an attachment point so my recommendation would be to attach the left leg to the aforementioned cloak segment, align the right leg with it and then insert the 'v' shaped joining piece before adding the whole lot to the body. It's also worth adding the round drinking vessel piece to the back of the body in order to give yourself something to align the legs with.
Fermented River Monk B - Assembled
Fermented Monk 'B' on the sprue is listed on the instructions as '1'. This one was a bit of a pain. the lack of obvious interlocking points between the parts makes dry-fitting essential in order to avoid gaps but once you've got that out of the way it's fairly issue free.
Fermented River Monk C - Assembled
Fermented Monk 'C' on the sprue is listed on the instructions as '2'. This one is actually issue free. I'd attach the legs to the body and then add the rear cloak segment as that seemed like the easiest way to align everything. The 'drinking' arm aligns well with the mouth which was a pleasant surprise.
Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
