1. To get the old boy out of squatty potty stance, I sawed off the legs just below the knees, and lengthened and repositioned them with thick pins. After this I sculpted new calves with green stuff and gave everything a good sanding to blend it all together.

3. To make the model a bit more animated I clipped the sword arm above the elbow and re-pinned it at a slightly rotated angle. I also angled the sword hand forward a bit.
4. I assembled the model in a running position, with sword held high, and right foot held behind. The whole model is attached to the base by a large pin in the left foot. I hope that's good enough! It seems pretty solid...
