Unboxing Malifaux - Alternate Vanessa

"Another sister?..."
The Alternate Vanessa box contains enough parts for one miniature...namely Alternate Vanessa. It also contains a stat card for her though there are no upgrade cards.

Vanessa, Treasure Hunter
Viktoria's true sibling, Vanessa is an incredibly agile weapon master, armed not only with her favoured Katana, but also with a mysterious power which drives those around her to greater acts of heroism among the weird and wonderful battlegrounds of Malifaux.

Alternate Vanessa - 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.

Alternate Vanessa - Stat Cards
Stat cards in the official format can now be downloaded from Wargame Vault for a nominal fee from HERE though this may 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.

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.
Additionally...my 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 Vanessa- Assembled
First attach the legs together, then attach these to the body, then assemble the coat around them. The indentation in her neck aligns with the collar of the coat so her head faces the correct way. There's also a tiny indentation on the left wrist that aligns with a tiny lump on the staff. The right hand is part of the staff and aligns with a flat part on her right arm.

Alternate Vanessa - Comparison Picture
Here's a comparison picture between the alternate and original versions of Vanessa. They're about the same height, I just built the base up a bit higher on the alternate one.

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 product...well...you can keep that info to yourself...
