Unboxing Wild West Exodus - Harmony Ratchet

I've recently been drawn into the world of Wild West Exodus and to the surprise of no-one at all I've ended up going with 'The Enlightened' as my chosen faction. As is to be expected I'll be doing unboxing style reviews of the models I purchase...

I've been purchasing mine through my local game store Titan Games though they can also be obtained direct from the Wild West Exodus website.

First a brief bit of background about mine (and Harmony Ratchets) chosen faction...
The Enlightened
The greatest scientific minds of a generation have been twisted and corrupted by the whispered words of a dark and mysterious force. Once, in another reality, soaring towers of graceful steel would have risen up into the sky built by these men. But now brutal machines of destruction, powered by the very essence of evil, seek to crush the ignorant beneath their iron weight. Medicine that could have saved countless lives now drags the helpless dead back into the land of the living. Mindless automatons moving solely at the direction of these crazed geniuses. Men so convinced of the purity of their own motives and ideals that nothing can be allowed to question them. Once heralded as the saviours of mankind, they now stand to provide the tools and weapons set on destroying all living things on earth.

Harmony Ratchet
Unfazed by the mournful screams of the dying or the agonised screams of the reanimated, the assistance of Harmony Ratchet is in high demand amongst the Enlightened. A most capable student of medicine, Harmony's journey began after several years as assistant to her father, the noted Arkansas surgeon James Ratchet. The brutality of the Civil War formed the backdrop for Harmony carrying out her bloody work with countless amputations saving many Confederate lives. After the war, her father now retired, Harmony found her options limited. But as chance would have it, a speaker in the art of galvanism led her to the patronage of Countess Augusta Byron and her path into the Enlightened was assured.

Harmony Ratchet - Blister and Insert
The single models come in a standard blister together with the appropriately sized base.
This particular model is on a 30mm(ish) base. Wild West Exodus use their own style of base that varies somewhat from the standard 'round-lipped' bases that you may be used to.

Harmony Ratchet - Unassembled
Here are the parts (this particular model is resin) in their unassembled form. Well...'part' in this case...

Harmony Ratchet - Stat Card
At the time of writing this the game is undergoing beta-testing for a new version of the rules so some of the characters stats are currently quite fluid...here's the current version of her stat card or thereabouts...

Harmony Ratchet - Assembled
As a single part model this actually needs no assembly though you'll still want to be careful when removing the unwanted lumps of resin. After clean-up it's just a case of gluing the model to a base.

Harmony Ratchet - Rotational View
Here's a rotational view...

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
Should you ever choose to purchase something based on one of my features or reviews then it would be nice if you could let the company know where the inspiration came from...who knows...they might be grateful to the poor unappreciated blogger who sent you their way...if however I've put you off a product...well...you can keep that info to yourself...
