Unboxing Malifaux - Medical Automatons

"This won't hurt a bit...much..."
Medical Automatons box contains enough parts for two miniatures...namely the Medical Automatons. It also contains stat cards for them though there are no upgrade cards.

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

Medical Automatons - 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.

Medical Automatons
Not as daunting as you may imagine as the pieces on both these models fit together well and have more than adequate location points. The obvious weak point is the tentacle like arms as they have fairly small attachment points when compared to their weight (relatively speaking) and will need holding in place until the glue has fully 'gone off'. Make careful note of the raised location points on each piece as these are critical to getting the alignments correct.

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...
