Unboxing Malifaux - Alternate Mr Graves and Mr Tannen

"Pick a're leaving..."
Alternate Mr Graves and Mr Tannen box contains enough parts for two miniatures...namely Alternate Mr Graves and Mr Tannen. It also contains stat cards for them though there are no upgrade cards.

Alternate Mr Graves and Mr Tannen
Mr Graves is an imposing man who rarely wanders the streets without some form of blunt object with which to strike anyone who comes a little too close. Not the sharpest tool in the draw, he is suspicious of anyone who strikes him as the least bit different, and tends to strike first and ask questions later.

Never under estimate Mr Tannen. He walks the floors of the honey pot inviting himself to chat with the patrons, when suddenly their winning streaks turn sour and piles of chips disappear as bet by bet Mr Tannen brings with him a cloud of bad luck.

Alternate Mr Graves and Mr Tannen - Sprues
The box has two sprues in it as well as the aforementioned cards. Here's pictures of both sides of them.

Alternate Mr Graves and Mr Tannen - Stat Cards
Stat cards in the official format can now be downloaded from Wargame Vault for a nominal fee from HERE though that might change when third edition arrives.

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.

Alternate Mr Graves and Mr Tannen - Instructions

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. own assembly notes are written as I go along so I'd suggest reading them all the way through before starting the assembly process.

Alternate Mr Graves - Assembled
The main model is mostly straightforward but the chair is a bit tricky as it's a bit fiddly. With the chair (imo at least) it's best to fix the two middle parts together, add the tabletop and then attach the piece that's on Mr Graves arm.

Alternate Mr Tannen - Assembled
The only real problem with this model is that the joint between spirit and Mr Tannen isn't brilliant as it doesn't really lock into place so needs to be held there until the glue goes 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...
