Additionally, since when does Wyrd care about the size of their bases :D? I think there can be the following possibilities for this model to be as it is: Wyrd thinks the render looks cool and likes it very much. In that case, At the end of the day, art is art and everybody is entitled to have her/his own tastes. The current staff from Wyrd (artist and/ or sculptor) may not be skilled enough to provide the level of aesthetics, creativity, inspiration and miniature variety that was characteristic of M2E. Wyrd wants to lower down production costs, especially mould costs. This is a perfectly acceptable reason. However, I think one of M2E's strongest asset was an outstanding miniature range with dynamic and colourful miniatures. Losing on this aspect, Malifaux's minis will just look like the rest of the steampunk games out there. Wyrd wants to ease the assembly process. It is true that some of the M2E miniatures were not friendly to non-hobbyists and having easier to assemble miniatures may help attracting newcomers. True, I have a hard enough time assembling minis. They are just soooooo tiny. Im pretty new to it though.
