Intimacy Female Build 8 November, 2015



The Intimacy Female is a complicated build. Carefully trim the components from the sprue as there are a couple tabs to watch for. Note that the feather is attached to the slot in her back at first. I ended up trimming the small hair strand and adding it near the cape, see notes below.
Update 10 November: Trimmed the tab on the feather and reattached


Sprue front – this is shared with The Hand and the Screaming Antelope


Sprue back


Components in assembly order:

  • torso, leg and base
  • bikini top
  • lower skirt
  • rear skirt
  • left hair with hand
  • cape
  • right hair
  • sword arm, feather and (non standard) hair
Update: some discussions online show that the piece I added at extra hair is attached to the back slot as a bollowing piece of cloth (thanks to several at BGG here) and I trimmed the tab on the feather and reattached to her hair. Drake (via email, thanks!) pointed out that "If you lay it fairly flat, the folds line up reasonably well and it looks pretty natural."



Leg, mounted to base


Bikini top


Lower skirt


Rear skirt - I initially thought the feather was a belt strap but the slot fits (as does the hair strand) on top of the hear. Will use a file to smooth out the glue deformities prior to painting.


Left hair with hand


Cape


Right hair


Right hair opposite view for reference


Finished with sword arm, feather and (non standard) hair. I trimmed the thin hair strand and tucked it underneath the “right hair” component
I pulled a lantern off the Lion Armor accessory sprue, trimmed off the hand and tapped a hole through the handle with a small drill bit. The more I look at the "feather", the more I dislike it - may trim and smooth before painting.
