Unboxing Malifaux - Special Edition Witchling Handler

"Too much to handle?"
This was a special edition model from a recent Wyrd Games sale and such models often come in a bag rather than a box...which I suppose makes this an unbagging rather than an unboxing...It's also worth mentioning that such models tend to appear during future sales as well so if you missed out there's a chance you'll still be able to acquire it at a later date.

The Special Edition 'Alternative' Witchling Handler bag contains enough parts for one miniature...namely the Special Edition Witchling Handler. It also contains a stat card for her though there are no upgrade cards.

Special Edition Witchling Handler - Sprue
The bag has one sprue in it as well as the aforementioned card. Here's pictures of both sides of it...

Special Edition Witchling Handler - Stat Card
Wyrd Games didn't like my publishing pictures of both sides of the stat cards so you'll have to make do with this...

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.

Special Edition Witchling Handler - Assembled
This model is relatively issue free though there are three points worth noting. Firstly the rope attached to one hip is quite delicate so requires care when handling and removing from the sprue and secondly the sword hands wrist doesn't have a particularly large attachment point so you may need to hold it in place while the glue goes off. The third issue is that the head is in three's not difficult to assemble despite being small but I'd recommend dry-fitting before gluing.

Here's a couple of comparison pictures between this alternate version and the other available ones.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
