Unboxing Malifaux - Rougarou

'Fresh Meat...'

The Rougarou box contains enough parts for two miniatures...namely the Rougarou. It also contains stat cards for them though there are no upgrade cards.

Rougarou - 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 some close-ups of the sub-sections.

Rougarou - Stat Cards
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.

Rougarou - Instructions
There are currently no instructions for these models so you'll have to make do with my assembly guide and assembled pictures...

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.


Rougarou A - Assembled
The main body is in two halves. Four limbs attach to the assembled body and each attachment point is different at the location area so the parts cannot be confused. Similarly each separate foot is also shaped differently at the meeting point so cannot be mixed up...or more correctly it'll be obvious if you DO get it wrong...

Rougarou B - Assembled
As with Rougarou A this is another two part body to which the limbs attach but in this case only one of the front pair has a separate foot. It's probably best to attach the separate skeletal foot to the rock rather than to the leg as the connection point at the bony ankle is minuscule. Once the other leg is placed on the base the opposite foot aligned perfectly...well...mine did at least...

Rougarou - Rotational Views
Here's a couple of rotational views of the Rougarou.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
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...
