Unboxing Malifaux - Flying Piglets

"Yeah...and pigs might fly..."
The Flying Piglets box contains enough parts for three miniatures...namely the Flying Piglets. It also contains stat cards for them though there are no upgrade cards.

Flying Piglets - 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 close-ups of the sub-assemblies.

Flying Piglets - 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.

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.

Flying Piglets
These are fairly simple though they all share the same two problems. One, the split in the heads is down the middle which I'm not a fan of and secondly the wings only have a minor indentation for locating them rather than a proper location point. Luckily the surface area is fairly big so they should be moderately sturdy once the glue has gone off.

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...
