Unboxing Malifaux - M2E Crooked Men

Apparently the Resurrectionists have been on a recruitment drive...

'Small Box' Cover

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

Crooked Men - Stat Cards (M2E)

Normally there would be some official instructions in this bit but I can't find any yet....

Crooked Men - Group Picture

Crooked Man 1 - Assembled
I had a little trouble getting the two halves of the hat to align properly and it was a bit tricky then trying to insert the head into the correct location as the pick handle is somewhat in the way...a bit of patience is required for that bit...

Crooked Man 2 - Assembled
Apparently it's not just Gremlins that come with tiny separate feet...I'd also be careful when removing the shovel from the sprue as the handle is a bit spindly...

Crooked Man 3 - Assembled
There's some worryingly delicate 'ribbon' type pieces on both the head and the one arm that you need to be aware of and as with the other two models this ones 'Pick' has a fairly thin handle.

Here's a couple of comparison pictures including the original metal Crooked Men and the new plastic M2E versions.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.


  1. Which do you prefer, metal or plastic Crooked Men?

    1. They're both different enough in style so it's hard to decide. I think the new ones might just be my favourites though.

  2. It also appears that one of the plastic Crooked Men is larger than the other two.

    1. Two are leaning forward slightly and one is standing on one leg so looks bigger.

  3. I miss the Crooked Men being, you know, crooked. These guys look like they're undead stars of the Thunder Down Under instead of miners shattered by cave-ins. ;)
