Unboxing Malifaux - Midnight Stalker

"Please, allow me to introduce myself..."

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

Midnight Stalker - Sprue
The box has one sprue in it as well as the aforementioned card. Here's pictures of both sides of them...

Midnight Stalker - 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.

Midnight Stalker - 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.

Midnight Stalker - Assembled
The cobblestone effect on which the model is based was created using this tutorial HERE.

You may find it slightly easier to put the side cloak pieces on if you haven't already put the rear piece with the arms attached on to it. The only possible delicate points are the dagger and the pointing finger both of which are on the same part so will require some care when removing from the sprue and when attaching to the model. With only six parts in total this is a very simple assembly.

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...
