Unboxing Malifaux - Witchling Thralls

'Beyond terror, beyond pain'

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

Witchling Thralls - Sprue
The box has one sprue in it split into two pieces (so it actually fits in the box one presumes) as well as the aforementioned cards. Here's pictures of both sides of them and some close-ups of the sub assemblies...

Witchling Thralls - 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.

Witchling Thralls - Instructions
Witchling Thrall '1' was 'B' on the sprue while Witchling Thrall '2' was 'A'. Not a big issue but worth noting.

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.

Witchling Thrall 1/B - Assembled
The chains on the models hands align with the chains on his belt. It's also easier to attach the arms after assembling the two body halves as you have more to align them to.

Witchling Thrall 2/A- Assembled
The hands should meet so dry-fit before gluing the arms at the shoulders as there's a bit of potential movement there. The chains on the feet align with the chains at the rear of the body and would also benefit from testing the alignment before gluing anything.

Here's a couple of rotational views of the Witchling Thralls...

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...
