Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm having trouble deciding between these two poses. Originally I had planned on the 1st pose (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.
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.
First Pose with Halberd level and ready to impale!
A more stoic confident pose. The Left hand is missing here, but would probably just put the open hand resting on the thigh or such. And a shoulder mounted Heavy Weapon facing the same direction as the head.
Another with the upright halberd at a slightly cocked and more rested angle.
Anyway, any and all feedback is appreciated. The legs are the only part that are fixed in place (so no cutting or bending of knees for this guy).
I love everything about the way hes standing. The only problem I have...is the halberd.
I think it's too big personally. It draws away from the actual model. I think I'd like it more if you cut the blade down to where it's just above the head, not the entire model taller than he is.

I like the first pose better, he looks tired in the second pose.
I agree with Drayken. That is one big halberd! Shortening it would look less over the top, not to mention making it a lot easier to transport.
Apart from that, pose number 2 looks pretty cool. And this topic should be in the modelling forum.
#1 for me
I like the second stance the most, the first one is standing in a strange angle. But I agree with the previous posters, the helberd is too long, shortening it a bit will probably look better.
In the next Wraithlord I will have more dynamic legs. So for this guy I'm kind of stuck with a straight stance.
I can of course adjust the torso, head, and arms.
I'll do some more positioning tonight (when it's not 1am) and take some better pictures.
Interesting that the halberd length is my favorite part! I think that once the model is painted the weapon won't look so out of place. It's at the very edge of being too long (imho) and I kind of like that. I want my opponents to take one look and say, "I'm not getting near that thing!"
Anyway, I have some shorter lengths and will put up some pics for comparison this evening.
Well,if I were you I would go with the second pose because it looks like the first one would be hard to carry and the halberd could knock over models while playing a game.
pose #1 seems to work for me. I would second (or fourth) making the halberd slightly shorter.

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
