Even that one isn't great. The head looks way too big for the body. Yeah, the mohawk head from the plastic kit would probably make a much better version.

It IS too big for the body. And though more subtle, I think the legs are too short as well. It's like the modeler used a toddler for a model and didn't realize proportions change when those grow up into adults.

Valdor's better proportioned, but should've left that entire wall of trophies he's carrying at home.

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

Ironically, custodians are crafted from a -very- early age. Perhaps he have a bit of a toddler in his shape still.

He is now up for pre-order.

My opinion on his looks has not improved much over the past 2 months, though I'm now pretty sure that eagle crash-landed on his shoulder. If anyone orders one, let me know if he can be built without some of the big distractions (the eagle and horned thing on his other shoulder especially) that would probably improve him a lot.

It just dawned on me that the star thing behind his head is almost Tzeentchian.

That idea appears actually stolen straight from the Sigmarines. Though the curving is new and definitely DOES put Tzeenth in mind, I'll agree with you there...

The thing on his shoulder looks a bit daft, and the massive wing on the other is out of place imo. Not sure the face is gritty enough either.
I really like the base though; would be a great centre piece.
