I'm having trouble deciding between these poses. Originally I had planned on the halberd more level, but I also dig the almost regal look of the simple stance and upright weapon.
btw, I do plan on magnetizing the shoulder heavy weapons (though I usually only use one) and the halberd is certainly not complete in these photos.
He's currently posed with tacky stuff, so the head will probably be repositioned.
The legs/hips on this one are the only part that is glued in position.
Anyway, I need to get this guy done up and painted soon for a tourney and painting contest.
I have another Wraithlord NIB that I will do another more dynamic pose with in the future.
I originally had this posted in the Eldar forums and several people disliked the halberd length. While I do like it a bit long (no dirty jokes please) I have decided to shorten it a little. The wrists are magnetized so I can detach the weapon for transport.
So, critiques and advice is much appreciated.
Pose 1: Here's the 1st idea I had. Though I think is looks a bit too stiff, next time I'll do something with the legs.
Pose 3: A bit more regal stance. The halberd will be shortened a little bit. But I do like the near awkwardness of the length. It says, "Stay away!"
Pose 4: My recent favorite. Looks a bit more actiony.
>>>>>>>>>>>>edit-added WIP photo below>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
So I settled on Pose 4, though for my next Wraithlord I will spend more time (and willingness to sculpt) to create a more dynamic and unique posture.
Here he is all glued up and undercoated. He will be Biel Tan colors. The resin base is from secretweaponsminatures.com
and is also just undercoated.
The BrightLance is magnetized and easily swappable. The wrists are also magnetized so the halberd with hands attached can be removed for easy/safe transport.

oops, tried to do a poll. Guess it didn't save it...
Pose #3 for sure. Great pose.
Of the choices available I vote for pose #3, with #4 as a close runner up, the other two don't really fit my fancy.
Id say #4, for the simple reason of it being badass.

Well, I still like the avatar pose However, out of the ones above, I like number 4 the best. It is completely badass as Tyr has already stated, and it gives the model strength.
The Great Plague meets The Devourer of The Galaxy. What does that make us?
Oops I counted wrong, my vote was for #4 as well!
Pose 2 or pose 4.
Both of these look the best but they aren't that likely to interfere with the placement of other models. Pose one may increase the chance of it bumping into other models. Pose 3 is just standing about and I think a bit dull. With a big chopper like that it is better that people get an idea of what it can do by making it mobile looking.
I would go with pose number four for various reasons.
Pose #1: I agree with those on the Eldar forum, the halberd looks much too long.
Pose #2: Has all of the 'I'm about to attack' look as Pose #4, and all of the 'standing guard' look as Pose #3. Unfortunately, the two do not mix properly.
Pose #3: Although this is an interesting pose, when I picture a Wraithlord on the battlefield with a halberd, I picture it swinging the weapon through ranks of infantry, sending bodies flying and slicing through tanks--not standing at attention.
Overall, I think Pose #4 has the best aesthetic and functional look. Especially if you plan on keeping the halberd at the same length it is in the picture.
Make 4 wraithlords with halberds!
