Unboxing Malifaux - Grootslang

"It's BEHIND you!?!?!?!?"

The Grootslang box contains enough parts for one miniature...namely the Grootslang. It also contains a stat card for him though there are no upgrade cards.

Grootslang - Sprues
The box has three sprues within as well as the aforementioned cards. Here's pictures of both sides of them...

Grootslang - 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.

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.

Grootslang - Assembled
The body consists of two large parts with the legs and arms separate. The legs are two-part and so the feet require adding but these have good location points and are different on each foot so they cant be confused. Overall a very easy build and the assembly order is also not critical. The tail and arms overlap the base no matter where you attach the feet to the base and I'm afraid there's nothing that can be done about that....

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 can keep that info to yourself...
