Unboxing Malifaux - Bunraku
'No strings attached...'
The Bunraku box contains enough parts for three miniatures...namely the Bunraku. It also contains stat cards for them though there are no upgrade cards.
Bunraku - Sprue
The box has one sprue in it as well as the aforementioned cards. Here's pictures of both sides of it...
Bunraku - 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.
Well I'm sure you can see the issues with these models just by looking at them but just in case...
The swords are very thin indeed and the arms to which they attach have only minimal contact points with the models body. The legs are also somewhat thinner than I'd like, These factors make assembling these models frustrating rather than difficult but as long as you're systematic and have a modicum of patience you should be okay.
