Unboxing Malifaux - Survivors
"So you say this thing shoots as well?!?!?"
The Survivors box contains enough parts for three miniatures...namely the Survivors. It also contains stat cards for them though there are no upgrade cards.
Survivors - Sprue
The box has one sprue in it. Here's pictures of both sides of it...
Survivors - 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.

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.
These three models all share the same issues so I'll cover them here in one go rather than say the same thing three times...
These models have a very low parts count but being gremlins the parts are quite tiny and have relatively small contact points. The right arm on Survivor 'B' is both small and in two pieces but these have a flat portion on each piece that you can use to align them. All in all the fiddly nature of the parts size is somewhat mitigated by the fact that there aren't many of them...
