Unboxing Malifaux - Will o' the Wisps
"Can you hear fluttering?"
The Will o' the Wisps box contains enough parts for three miniatures...namely the Will o' the Wisps. It also contains stat cards for them though there are no upgrade cards.
Will o' the Wisps - Sprue
The box has two sprues in it as well as the aforementioned cards. Here's pictures of both sides of them...
Will o' the Wisps - 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.
Will o' the Wisps - 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.
Will o' the Wisps
Will o' the Wisp A - Assembled
The wings are quite difficult to slot into place as you're pushing delicate wings into a thin slot and you may need to file down the attachment piece on the wings slightly to get them in (Or I did at least). The model also has tiny hands and feet and some tendrils on the head are obviously delicate so take care when handling the head piece.
Will o' the Wisp B - Assembled
The model has tiny feet and a two-part head with a delicate tendril on it so avoid pressing on that when placing the models hands over its head . The hand and arm alignment needs dry-fitting as one hand wraps over the other and they attach to the arms which were separate.
Will o' the Wisp C - Assembled
This model has similar tiny tendrils to the other two models and the same care needs to be taken. It's also a somewhat difficult model to base due to the pose. My solution can be seen in the assembled pictures but basically mine is holding onto some scenery...
