Unboxing Malifaux - Mechanized Porkchop
"What do you mean it's not for eatin'?"
The Mechanized Porkchop box contains enough parts for one miniature...namely the Mechanized Porkchop. It also contains a stat card for him though there are no upgrade cards.
Mechanized Porkchop - Sprue
The box has one sprue in it as well as the aforementioned card. Here's pictures of both sides of it...
Mechanized Porkchop - 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.

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.
Mechanized Porkchop - Assembled
The body is in two large halves with four separate legs. The mouth is a separate piece but aligns well. The only minor issue is that it has separate ears and thin exhausts. The ears do have 'pegs' in them that slot into the model but these might need a bit of trimming as mine weren't a brilliant fit. The exhaust parts have an alignment piece on them so you can't really put them in the wrong place.
I normally use Wyrd Games Bayou Base Inserts on my Gremlin models but I didn't have a 50mm one at the time so I made this one so I could get the model based and photographed...I think I'll keep it now though as it turned out better than I was expecting...
Here's some close-ups...
Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
