Running wraithblades

Wraithblades are pretty cool models. I'm personally delighted that we now have plastic wraithguard... It opens up the potential for some easy converting.

With that in mind I looked to repose some of my wraithblades purchases into running poses. 

The below images are of some  of the leg repositions I did. They are simple if imperfect.

Fig 1 and fig 2 show the angles of the cuts I made on the first conversion.

By taking the 3 pieces rotating the middle piece through 180 deg and cleaning the faces slightly I ended up with a leg with much more bend in it. 
Once this was glued together I attached it to the hip joint at a running angle

By drilling and pinning the front leg so that the toes were touching the ground i got the look i was working for as you can see in fig 3.

Fig 3 shows a second type of cut i did on another leg . this type of cut requires a little more posiioning and possibly pinning. Worked well too.
