Unboxing Malifaux - M2E Rafkin
"This medicine tastes funny...."
The Rafkin box contains enough parts for one miniature...namely Rafkin. It also contains a stat card for him though there are no upgrade cards.
Rafkin - Sprue
The box has one sprue in it split as well as the aforementioned cards. Here's pictures of both sides of it...
Rafkin - 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.
Rafkin - 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.
Rafkin - Assembled
The one leg slots into a recess in the body and the other leg aligns with it. The vial arm and blade arm slot into respective indentations in the body so alignment is no issue. The face piece slots onto back of the head on the body section. It's six parts in total so should be an easy assembly project for most people.
Rafkin - Comparison Picture
Here's a comparison picture between the original metal version and the new M2E plastic one.
Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
