Unboxing Malifaux - Tanuki

"A little drink followed by a nap I think..."

The Tanuki box contains enough parts for three miniatures...namely the Tanuki. It also contains stat cards for them though there are no upgrade cards.

Tanuki - Sprue
The box has one sprue in it as well as the aforementioned cards. Here's pictures of both sides of it...

Tanuki - Stat 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...

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.

These are actually fairly simple models to assemble with a few minor exceptions that I'll explain below...

Tanuki 1 - Assembled
I advise putting on the right arm before the hat as it gets slightly in the way otherwise.

Tanuki 2 - Assembled
The slot for the tail is a tad tight and may need some slight enlargement to get a comfortable fit. There's a delicate tube on the drinking sack which is relatively thin so take care when removing the part from the sprue and when handling. I'd also put the hat on last. There's a circular flat on the inside of the hat aligns with the rear of the drinking vessel.

Tanuki 3 - Assembled
There's no issues at all with this one...at least none that I found...unless you count the fact that he's balancing on one foot...

Here are rotational views of the three Tanuki...

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...
