Out of the Box - Plastic Cygnar Heavy Warjack

Image
The Cygnar Heavy Warjack is closer in size to the metal counterpart compared to the Khador one. The only difference is the hands, which are quite tiny.

This is what you get out of the box:
 The bagging is the same as the Khador warjack - little bits in a divided bag:
 Another shot of the bag:
 And the bits of the Warjack laid out so you can see the different configuration options:

Out of the Box - Plastic Khador Heavy Warjack

This time, I show you what's inside the Khador Heavy Warjack plastic kit. This is what you get when you unpack the box, with enough cards to make 4 different configurations, and the bits in a long divided plastic bag:
All the pieces laid out - you can see that minimal effort is required to glue magnets to the different arms. There are a few good tutorials, including YouTube videos that I have seen that show you how to do this.
Another shot without the base on the side:
That's all folks!

Out of the Box - Ruby (Dinosaur-riding Cowgirl)

Image
Time for another Out of the Box - this time it is Ruby, by Studio McVey. Ruby is the 15th limited edition figure (released December 2010 actually) and is one of the larger releases. Ruby and the dinosaur come in a mix of sprued and loose bits, as well as a 50mm round lipped base and an insert.
My insert was bent - guess it was demoulded too fast. The injection point is quite extreme, but nothing a sharp blade won't fix. The base has footprints for where the dinosaur is supposed to stand. After I remove the sprue, I'll have to use a hot water bath to flatten it back out.
The first of the two sprues comes with the dinosaur's arms and tail. The only bit that is very fragile is where the tip of the tail is sprued - the join is quite large (and mine had an air bubble right at the point of tail, causing the last millimeter of the tail tip to break off when I removed it from the sprue).
The second sprue has the guns, the horns with the reigns, Ruby's arm and hat, and the dinosaur…

Out of the Box - Ortega Gunslingers Starter Box

Image
The Ortega Gunslingers are one of the original releases for Malifaux. Lead by Perdita, there are 5 models in this box set.
This is what you get in the box: Perdita herself is two parts - her hat is separate:
Santiago is a two part model on a single sprue. The right arm is separate and will need to be glued on.
Papa Loco is three parts.
Nino Ortega is three parts, with the leg and the arms on a separate sprue:
Finally, Francisco Ortega is a single piece model. Here is the box art as per the official website.
