Unboxing Malifaux - M2E Wardens
"You...Stay right there!!!"
The Wardens box contains enough parts for two miniatures...namely the Wardens. It also contains stat cards for them though there are no upgrade cards.
Wardens - Sprue
The box has two sprues in it as well as the aforementioned cards. Here's pictures of both sides of them...
Wardens - 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.
Wardens - 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.
There are no specific issues with the models though there are some general points worth noting about both.
Many of the limbs are in two or three pieces and in order to ensure a flush fit make sure that the points where you've clipped or cut them from the sprue are cleaned off properly. Several of these only connect at one end so it's possible for them to slide out of position slightly so both dry-fitting before gluing and checking of alignment during are recommended. Other than that they are fairly issue free as long as you're systematic and follow the instructions.

Wardens - Comparison Picture (Sort Of...)
I don't possess the original metal version of the Warden so here's a picture of them standing next to one of the original metal Guardians instead.
Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
