Unboxing Malifaux - Emeline Bellerose (Alternate Sybelle)

"What's your pleasure?"
This model is available to purchase via Wyrd Games various sale events or possibly via their 'Guilder' scheme if you're lucky enough to be (or be willing to perform 'favours' for) a local Henchmen or attend certain events...I acquired mine via one of the aforementioned also came in a bag rather than a box...making this an unbagging I suppose...
The Emeline Bellerose bag contains enough parts for one miniature...namely Emeline Bellerose. It also contains a stat card for her though there are no upgrade cards. Should you be looking for the original version rather than this one then she's part of the Seamus starter set which can be found HERE.

Madame Sybelle was once the owner and proprietress of Sybelle’s Saloon, a successful cathouse. That changed the night Seamus came calling. Now Sybelle and her girls are the decaying servants of a maniacal killer. Even in death, Sybelle retains some of her poise, ordering her girls about and keeping an eye on them when Seamus isn’t around.

Sybelle is fantastic in any list that includes other Belles (Rotten Belles or Dead Doxies) as she boosts their Wk and can call them to her. She can also disrupt the enemy by forcing them to attack her with her “Attend to Personally” action or control their actions with the Trigger on her “Bleeding Tongue” upgrade. Like most Resurrectionist models, she is highly resilient, and she also packs one of the few shooting attacks in the faction.

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

Emeline Bellerose - Stat Cards
Stat cards in the official format can now be downloaded from Wargame Vault for a nominal fee from HERE.

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.

Emeline Bellerose - Instructions
Couldn't find any official assembly instructions so you'll have to make do with my pictures I'm afraid...

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.

Emeline Bellerose - Assembled
The two material pieces attach to the body to form the skirt and her feet slot into the gap formed by the three parts. Her arms and umbrella are a single assembly but be careful when removing this sub-assembly from the sprue as the one shoulder piece blends into the sprue attachment point and it would be easier to cut it off too far down the arm. The hat is the only small part but has a decent angled attachment point to keep it in place.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
I purchase my miniatures from Leodis Games (Link Below) and can highly recommend them.
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...
