"Rot or Rend?..Why not both?"
The Carrion Emissary box contains enough parts for one miniature...namely the Carrion Emissary. It also contains a stat card for him and several upgrade cards.
Carrion Emissary - Sprue
The box has one sprue in it as well as the aforementioned cards. Here's pictures of both sides of it...
Carrion Emissary - Stat and Upgrade 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...and the upgrade cards...which only have one side anyway...
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.
Carrion Emissary - 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.
Carrion Emissary - Assembled
The lower part of the body is in two halves as is the upper body. The Scythe is slightly in the way of the curved extra cloak piece (with the syringes on it) and the separate hacksaw so you may want to attach these before adding the upper body though you can still get to them if the upper body is already on...it's just easier without.
You should put the (assembled) head in-between the upper body sections before gluing the body as the attaching piece is slightly angled and is a tight fit otherwise. Failing that you can also just cut off the tab and glue the head onto the neck directly.
The three part skull is a tiny bit fiddly to put together and the tiny 'wires' that align with the hand are easier to attach if you haven't put the wings on first as the right one does get in the way a bit.
Carrion Emissary - Comparison Picture and Rotating View
Here's a couple of comparison pictures between the Carrion Emissary and the Carrion Effigies as well as a rotating view.
