Unboxing Malifaux - M2E Guild Sergeants
The Guild Sergeants box contains enough parts for two miniatures...namely the Guild Sergeants. It also contains stat cards for them though there are no upgrade cards.
Guild Sergeants - 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 some close-ups of the sub-sections.
Guild Sergeants - Stat Cards
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.
Guild Sergeants - 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.
Guild Sergeant A - Assembled
There's no real indentation for the cloak pieces so you'll just have to align them with the edges on the main body. Also there's an arrow on the instructions pointing to the left arm with no part picture associated with it...obviously this is where the hand with the pistol goes.
Guild Sergeant B - Assembled
As with the other model there's no real indentation for the cloak pieces so you just have to align them with the edges on the main body. The head is in two parts but that's the only slightly fiddly bit.
Guild Sergeants - Comparison Picture
There's no real equivalent to the Guild Sergeants with the closest approximation being the Drill Sergeant so here's a comparison picture between the metal version of that and the new M2E plastic ones.
Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
