Unboxing Raging Heroes - Yoko, The Psycho 'Pyromaniac'

"...Or we could set it on fire..."

In this feature we're going to look at one of the characters for the Jailbirds...

For those of you who are interested in the background for Raging Heroes various 'Toughest Girls of the Galaxy' projects then the link to their original Kickstarter can be found here, their last project is here and their own website is located here. Most of their original Kickstarter is now available to purchase retail. There is also apparently a game system in development but until then I'm sure there are many other systems that you can be using them for...

First we'll have a brief look at the background for the Jailbirds and then we'll meet Yoko.

They are a bunch of low-life bad-ass big-attitude girls who all ended up in planetary prison held by the Kurganov government. In the game, they will be used as small penitentiary contingents led by the Kurganova Shock Troops, or as a full autonomous faction (because, as you can easily imagine, many of them have escaped captivity).

They are commando-style units with nothing to lose, and they specialise in acquiring enemy equipment for their own purposes.

Yoko 'The Psycho'
There is no doubt that many of the Jailbirds are a bit of crazy loose cannons... But when you meet Yoko, you wouldn't expect her to be one of the craziest of the bunch... With her childish laugh and her cute demeanour, she looks a bit like a teenage girl. But Yoko only has one burning interest in life: fire! Whether using a tiny box of matches or a heavy flame thrower, nothing makes her happier than dancing flames and... dare we say it?... the smell of napalm in the morning...
Yoko 'The Psycho' - Unassembled
Here's pictures of both sides of the unassembled model parts.

A Brief Note About Resin Models.
Also it's worth noting that many resin models have a slightly greasy feel caused by the substance they use to stop them sticking to the moulds during production and this can cause issues with paint not sticking to the model properly. Carefully washing the parts in soapy water will remove this should your model be unduly affected. Parts that are bent (or that aren't and you want to be) can be corrected by heating up slightly in warm water and then bending into the required configuration.

Yoko 'The Psycho' - Assembled
This model requires you to align the flamethrower and her left arm that attaches to it's rear and really requires dry-fitting first if you want to get it right. The only delicate piece are the weapons cables and these might need slightly realigning a little before gluing.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
