Unboxing Malifaux - M2E Soulstone Miners
"Did the earth move for you too?"
The Soulstone Miners box contains enough parts for two miniatures...namely the Soulstone Miners. It also contains stat cards for them though there are no upgrade cards.
Soulstone Miners - Sprue
The box has one sprue in it as well as the aforementioned cards. Here's pictures of both sides of it...
Soulstone Miners - 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.
Soulstone Miners - 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.
Each of these models is emerging from a nice piece of decorative basing which somewhat amusingly would fit perfectly into a 30mm base...despite the model actually being on a 40mm...
Soulstone Miner A - Assembled
This model consists of only five pieces. Each part is easy to handle and has a decent connection points so should provide no problems.
Soulstone Miner B - Assembled
This model consists of only four pieces. Each part is easy to handle and has a decent connection points so should provide no problems.
Soulstone Miners - Comparison Picture
Here's a comparison picture between the original metal version and the new M2E plastic ones.
Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
