Got some more work done tonight. I reposed the guy as I discussed with some folks and made him a new weapon as well (with a ton of advice from Dave Taylor - Thanks Dave!). Clearly I have alot of GS work to do now but I really am a lot more satisfied with both the new pose and the new weapon.
I also did some work on my bangstick butcher. The hands are just "tacked" on at the moment as I have to sculpt an apron for this chap before I glue em on.
